The fight for clean air starts now.

Meet our cell modules. They’re filled with pollution-fighting biofilms. They’re placed in public spaces where they can disarm the harmful pollutants you breathe every day.



A revolution in your streets.

Each cell grid is tailored to the specific pollutants in your home, neighborhood or transit system. These cells are a flexible, biocompatible alternative to traditional filter systems that usually end up in landfills.
