Sadly, air pollution is a growing concern with levels reaching an all-time high in many cities around the world. Around 90% of city-dwellers are exposed to particulate matter (PM2.5) levels exceeding the World Health Organization’s (WHO) air quality safety guidelines. Traffic exhaust, industrial pollutants and naturally occurring allergens are all key contributors.
We now know that breathing polluted air can have a serious detrimental effect on our health, leading to lung cancer, respiratory illnesses and even cardiac arrest. In fact, the WHO estimates that urban air pollution causes around 1.3 million premature deaths per year. Growing evidence also indicates that the problem is particularly serious for children, pregnant women and the elderly.
What’s more, air pollution is not limited to the outdoors. Worrying levels of airborne toxins can also be found inside our homes, including viruses and mold spores. Breathing this air can have an immediate negative effect on our health and even more serious long-term consequences.

Simple to use
AirRevival’s revolutionary Electronic Air Cleaning (EAC) technology takes advantage of electrostatic fields to literally draw pollutants out of the air. Since fine particles naturally have a positive charge, they can be attracted by a negatively charged electrostatic field. By creating just such a field, a single AirRevival unit can capture 90% of particles within an average-sized bedroom, using minimal electricity (approximately 1W).
Thanks to suction cups, you can simply affix an AirRevival unit to an easy-to-clean surface, preferably a glass pane such as a window or mirror. Hazardous particles are drawn from the air and collect on the glass. Once captured, these particles are effectively stuck and are not re-released into the air. Just wipe down the surface to thoroughly cleanse your home of pollutants.
Two models are available
01: FOR THE HOME
02: FOR THE CAR
How it works
Proven efficiency – even for ultra-fine particles
The harmful bioburden in the air consists of biologically active airborne particles of varying sizes. AirRevival has been specifically developed to handle nano-size, ultra-fine particles which are in fact the most hazardous to our health. AirRevival’s performance in cleansing the air of these minute particles is equal to or better than the most expensive HEPA-filtering techniques.
Within just 30 minutes, AirRevival can reduce the level of air pollution dramatically, bringing it well within WHO safety ranges.
Reduction in mold spores
Even modern buildings are frequently affected by the growth of molds and fungi, particularly in humid climates. These microorganisms grow on surfaces, produce spores that become airborne and are associated with allergies, including asthma. Sometimes mycotoxins are produced and these stay airborne with known health effects.
The agar tray illustration of mold growth shows the dramatic reduction of mold spores in the air after using AirRevival.
01: BEFORE EAC – 110 colonies
02: AFTER 18 DAYS – 35 colonies, a reduction of 68%
03: AFTER 2 MONTHS – 6 colonies, a reduction of 95%
Thanks to the innovative use of carbon fibres, controlled voltage and very low current (<1mA) used in EAC technology, AirRevival does not emit ozone. Furthermore, the static electricity created by the device is without known side effects, similar to naturally occurring levels.
Tried and tested
Your health and safety is our foremost concern at AirRevival. EAC technology was conceived in Sweden where is has been extensively tested. It has been successfully used in Swedish schools and daycare centers for over a decade, where studies showed an 80% reduction in fine particles and a 55% reduction in non-attendance, which could be directly attributed to fewer upper airway infections.
The AirRevival system complies with European safety standards and the scientific basis of its innovative and scientifically proven technology has been recognized by the EU.
AirRevival is significantly more cost-effective than other air purifiers on the market. Since it does not use filters, maintenance costs are eradicated completely.

Indoor air purification
Protection throughout the day
AirRevival is a lightweight, highly adaptable device that is simple to use and requires no maintenance. Simply attach your unit to a window, mirror or other glass pane and turn it on. AirRevival is completely silent and works best in combination with a fan or air-conditioner.
You should always feel safe in your own home. It’s a place to relax, revive and come together as a family. With AirRevival, you can have peace of mind, knowing that the air you and your loved ones are breathing is pure. Simply set up an AirRevival device in the most-used rooms of your house, not forgetting bedrooms and particularly nurseries.
Since many of us spend a good portion of our lives hard at work in our offices, clean air is as important there as it is at home. This is particularly true in shared office spaces, where AirRevival can reduce airborne toxins and viruses, improving the bioburden of the ambient air.
The air inside your car is prone to high levels of pollution, due to vehicle exhaust. Epidemiological data shows an association between traffic exposure and subsequent cardiac arrest. This hazard can be addressed very simply by placing an AirRevival unit on the rear side window of your car. Protect yourself even when on the move through the most polluted parts of the city and when in a queue.

AirRevival – a summary
Twenty years ago, we saw an increasing number of infants developing allergies and asthma in Sweden. My thought was that this might be related to the indoor air quality in day-care centers were the Swedish children start at an early age, often before the age of two years. We know that until till age of three, the immune system will adapt to the environment and some dirt is fine but what happens if there is too much and not the same dirt all the time?…
