Molekule's PECO technology was able to reduce the concentrations of bacteria, viruses, mold, and endospores in the tested air by more than 99.99%. And most recently, Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory, Intertek, found that Molekule's PECO technology was able to reduce 95% of particulate matter .3 microns in size and larger, all signaling PECO's ability to both capture and destroy pollutants.
