Osaka, Japan, May 9, 2012 -- Panasonic Corporation today announced that it has verified the deodorizing effects of air purifiers equipped with a generator of nanoe, nano-sized electrostatic atomized particles produced by applying high voltage to water, in actual pet shops under harsh conditions where pets continually emit odors.
This verification was achieved through collaboration with Professor Megumi Mitsuda, Director of the Odor Research Center, School of Informatics, Daido University.
Japan is now in the midst of an unprecedented pet boom. A public opinion survey shows that 34.3% of respondents have a pet, and other research shows that 72% of the pet owner respondents keep their pets indoors. As pets live with their owners in the same space, odor problems have come to the surface.
Getting full cooperation from two pet shops, Panasonic Ecology Systems Co., Ltd., a Panasonic group company, and Daido University conducted joint research and verified that air purifiers equipped with a generator of nanoe can remove odors from the air and fabric even under harsh conditions.
The Company will continue to develop advanced products to improve indoor air quality (IAQ), aiming to contribute to provision of healthy and comfortable living spaces and to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
The research results will be presented at the 36th Human Environment System Symposium (Nagoya) held in Daido University on December 1 and 2, 2012.
