The company plans to market this patent to be licensed by air purification device manufacturers, HVAC suppliers and service companies.
VANCOUVER — Atmofizer Technologies Inc. has said that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a Notice of Allowance for new claims related to the company’s air and water purification technology.
The allowed patent application, titled, “Ultra-Fine Particle Aggregation, Neutralization and Filtration” provides broad protection for important aspects of Atmofizer’s air purification technology.
“This is a tremendous step in our evolution, being able to apply our technology to the HVAC industry in the United States with a strong business case to improve air quality and reduce energy protected by a US patent,” said Olivier Centner, CEO in a statement.
“Most residential and commercial buildings cannot be retrofit to accommodate HEPA without re-sizing the ductwork in the walls and ceilings so we see this as being a tremendous solution that is easy to implement and cost effective.”
The recent Notice of Allowance from the USPTO is directed to a new design that delivers ultra-fine particle agglomeration and nanoparticle reduction performance in larger air ducts with faster-moving air, using less parts. The company plans to market this patent to be licensed by air purification device manufacturers, HVAC suppliers and service companies.
The company explained in its announcement that nanoparticles are difficult to manage by conventional air filters and purification devices. Agglomeration aggregates particles together to form larger clusters that help air filters work more efficiently. Larger particles allow lower-grade and traditionally less expensive air filters to last longer and require less energy.
