Over the last 150 years, mankind has depended on burning fossil fuels directly or indirectly for their energy needs. Soot is the major byproduct of the burning of fossil fuels.
Research has shown that many premature deaths are directly related to soot in the environment. Particle exposure leads to around 20,000 premature deaths in America each year. Many of these deaths were caused by soot-related diseases. Data also show that soot annually causes almost 300,000 asthma attacks and 2 million lost workdays due to respiratory problems.
Depending upon the engine and environmental variables, about 80-90 percent content in PM is carbon based. This is what we target.
Our vision is to arrest the vehicular, environmental soot in a way that it doesn't reach our lungs.
