The NASA Story
Birth Of A Revolutionary Technology
Sending man into deep space presents a variety of challenges.
Chief among them, producing a sustainable food supply. And here, NASA had a problem, ethylene gas. It’s a naturally occurring hormone that causes fruits and vegetables to ripen but, in a sealed environment like a space station, ethylene buildup is toxic. So toxic in fact, it kills the very fruits and vegetables it is meant to bring to harvest. The challenge - how to eliminate it.
Their solution was elegant.
A unique bioconversion technology that instantly converted any organic at a molecular level, solid or gas – and regardless of size into harmless vapor. Not only did this bioconversion technology effectively eliminate ethylene gas along with other volatile organic compounds (VOCs), subsequently it was also clinically proven to eradicate viruses, bacteria, fungi, and mold – even anthrax.
