Atmospheric chemist expands collaboration on air cleaner


Evil smelling air is hard to clean and harder to live with as anyone knows who’s worked in an office with failing ventilation. Atmospheric chemist Matthew Johnson has invented and patented a method to remove even the most stubborn forms of air pollution. The photochemical air purifier.

 Since 2012 the start-up company Infuser A/S has had an exclusive license to commercialize the invention. Now Johnson and Infuser have expanded their collaboration with a joint development agreement, allowing them to develop new applications to prevent agricultural and industrial emissions such as come from pig-farming and solvent using factories. In signing the agreement Infuser A/S are injecting half a million Danish Kroner into Johnson’s group.
