The science behind the scenes

Winning the battle
for air quality:
Indoors and out

AirLabs researchers are helping to bring cutting-edge, sustainable clean air technology to millions of people worldwide

All AirLabs systems and solutions have their roots in the atmospheric chemistry and airflow engineering knowledge of our experts. Between them, these research scientists share decades of experience studying at leading universities, academic institutions and clean tech companies.

Since the foundation of AirLabs in 2014, these researchers have made important breakthroughs in air filtration and monitoring technology that enables cities, businesses, retailers and schools to protect people from the harmful effects of airborne pollutants and pathogens.

The airborne transmission route is highly virulent and dominant for the spread of COVID-19.

Driving innovation

Air filtration
technology

AirLabs employs the most advanced technologies for air filtration including electrostatic precipitators, which provide high particle removal performance with lower powered fans. The gas filters in our devices were developed in-house and protect against gas pollutants which present the greatest threat to health in urban settings.

Sensor
innovation

Using innovative mechanical engineering and design, our low cost sensors can be deployed in dense urban networks to collect high-resolution air quality data at a local level. This can be used to feed learning algorithms that analyse and predict air quality in real time while supporting the development of effective long-term clean air strategies.

Climate
change

Air quality and climate change are inextricably linked. The impact of climate change on other air pollutants, such as particulate matter, is less fixed, but research is underway to address these uncertainties. As the science evolves, AirLabs is committed to supporting policy makers responsible for air quality and the impact of a changing climate.

Social and
environment

We build sustainability into all our products. This includes advanced filter technology that reduces the energy required to power our devices. Using electro-static plates instead of high density fabric filters, and nanocarbon filters that can be regenerated, we reduce waste. In-built smart sensors ensure that a device is only switched on when required.

Certifications and testing

Our labs

AirLabs is an organisation founded in atmospheric chemistry and airflow engineering. Our R&D labs are managed by one of our founders – Matthew S. Johnson, PhD, Chief Science Officer and Professor in Atmospheric Chemistry at The University of Copenhagen. Our scientists and PhDs work in collaboration with third party institutes on both experimental work and simulations. The laboratory is home to a comprehensive array of test chambers, gas and particle monitoring instruments, environmental control equipment and powerful computer software.

 

Test methodologies & Computer Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling

Our in-lab and real world testing push the boundaries of technology and are the result of active collaboration between our teams and some of the world’s leading applied environmental research and engineering institutes. Experts in Computer Fluid Dynamics (CFD), our teams are able to predict and model airflows ensuring the products we develop are fit for purpose.
