Our work is rooted in atmospheric chemistry and airflow engineering.

Mission

Our goal is to meaningfully reduce the impact of polluted air on citizens, focusing on critical high density pollution exposure areas in cities around the world.

Our systems can remove atmospheric pollutants (including gas-phase pollutants and particulate matter) in key locations across a city, effectively improving the quality of life for citizens.

Our Collaborators


History

Airlabs is a scientific research and design based organisation created out of a desire to tackle the huge social problem of air quality in cities across the world. Our Chief Scientist, Professor Matthew S Johnson had previously developed a breakthrough technology that replicated the Earth’s natural air cleaning mechanism.

He joined forces with SGO, an investment group focused on achieving profound social impact through the application of technology-enabled solutions, and Airlabs’ CEO Sophie Power, to found Airlabs.

Our work is the result of active collaboration with some of the world’s leading applied environmental research and engineering institutes, especially the Institute of Atmospheric Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen.

We aim to work with local and national governments, as well as citizens, to implement our solutions and grow our impact of pollution reduction to reach citizens around the globe.
