AFL was born from NASA

AFL technology began in space with NASA in 1994...

when NASA began planning for deep space exploration including proposed manned missions to Mars such as the "Constellation Mission Program", in 2013 which required sustaining life in space for months and years at a time.


But NASA had a problem...

Before preparing for such deep space exploration, NASA had to find an answer to ethylene gas destroying plants and vegetables in the space shuttle. Ethylene gas is the naturally occuring hormone released by plants and vegetables to signal ripering. On earth, it is naturally dispersed into the atmosphere, but in a sealed spacecraft ethylene build up becomes toxic. This will kill those very same plants and vegetables if not removed.


But there was a solution...

The scientists at NASA developed a new green technology called Photo Catalytic Oxidation (PCO) to remove ethylene gas build up. NASA developed PCO technology works by breaking down the ethylene gas into harmless Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Water (H2O) by exposure to Ultra Violet (UV) light in the presence of a Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) catalyst.


Further tests by NASA revealed...

PCO technology did not only eliminate ethylene gas build up but also destroyed all carbon based impurities in the air such as: Bad Odours, Volitile Organic Compounds (VOC's), Mould, Fungi, Bacteria, and Viruses.


Prof. Nabarun Ghosh and his team of scientisis have further enhanced the NASA developed PCO technology by creating:
