RainIons has undergone a scientific evaluation from the University of California, Riverside (UCR) and two feasibility studies. The first for the Atmospheric Negative Ionizer patent, and the second for the automotive muffler-tailpipe use case.
These studies show our technology could reduce airborne pollutants and GHG by up to 99%, including Particulate Matter 2.5 and smaller and Carbon Dioxide; creating a long-lasting ecological, human, and economic impact.
In addition to using water to capture/trap Carbon Dioxide (CO2), negative ions can also trap CO2. One negative ion can capture up to 11 CO2 molecules. CO2 and harmful pollutants interact with negative ions emitted from our pyroelectric/piezoelectric materials to create clusters of CO2 around a single anion. The maximum number of CO2 molecules that can interact with a negative ion is 8-12, with 11 being the commonly expected value.
