EHG Technology

The new EHG (ELECTRON AND HOLES GENERATOR) technology has been used to develop an air purification system (with studies and research in the aerobiology and biotechnology fields) that absorbs light energy and part of it into electrons and electron holes by photocatalysis. A substance (known as a photocatalyst) modifies, by the action of natural or artificial light, the speed of a chemical reaction, thereby mimicking photosynthesis.

How It Works

The microbial mitigation mechanism causes the degradation of the cell wall and membrane due to the production of reactive oxygen species, such as hydroxyl radicals and hydrogen peroxide.

The formation of radicals is the consequence of reactions that cause the breaking of a bond between two electrons: an asymmetrical split will cause the formation of compounds with a number of electrons that is different to the number of protons, i.e. ions, whereas a symmetrical split will lead to the formation of free radicals. ROS can attack microorganisms from outside, initially oxidizing the cell membranes.
