A new milestone for BioRemediation: A regenerative design for the indoor air with the help of Ammonia Oxidising Bacteria.

For our BioRemediation process, we succeeded in finding natural organisms that show regenerative properties for the IAQ and the health of the inhabitant. This regenerative design of our organisms is restoring the air quality (targeting PM2.5 & CO2) and strengthening the health of the inhabitant (targeting the skin microflora and overall diversity of the microbial landscape). Our carefully selected ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) are found everywhere where there is life: lakes, rivers, soil, and (formerly) on our skin.

Benefits of AOB organisms.

  • Purifies the air by decreasing the formation of PM2.5
  • AOB bacterium catalyses ammonia to nitrite using CO2
  • Supports immune system responses
  • Protects us from invasive pathogens
  • Safeguards balanced skin microflora
  • Improves aesthetics of your skin by reducing the appearance of wrinkles
  • Increases microbial biodiversity in the environment
  • Decontaminates air by removing toxic ammonia

Safety of AOB organisms.

Our specific AOB is found everywhere there is life: lakes, rivers, soil, and (formerly) on our skin. There have never been any reports of illness or disease related to AOB’s and they are literally incapable of causing an infection. Our organisms are upon the most extensively studied ammonia-oxidizing bacterium in the world.

Updated review of the antiviral activity of carrageenan

Sea-Aeration: A direct mode of virus inactivation.

Further results for our antiviral (carrageenan) core product in our Sea-Aeration technology confirmed an antiviral activity against the human coronavirus OC43 by the REGA Institute in Leuven. Interestingly, comparable results were also obtained when the antiviral activity of carrageenan was tested against the Influenza A virus. Further studies with the porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) resulted in a 98 % reduction concentration of infectious viral particles (titer).

R&D final paper: Aeration by Sea used in combatting airborne viruses in ventilation systems

Read the Summary Final Report 2021 of our Virus catching Sea-Aeration technology. In collaboration with TakeAirLabs and Avecom partnering laboratories

In this summary, we come to the conclusion of what has been intensive testing of the Sea-Aeration
technology in a lab and large scale test environment. Hard work and determination made the development and POC that is active today in the WTF Revive
building possible.
