Utilizing high energy light-based technologies, the Optipura emulates natural processes to break down chemical and biological contaminants using germicidal ultraviolet light, and exciting existing air molecules to highly energized states, also referred to as plasmas. These plasmas are released into their applied environment and continue to accelerate the breakdown of organic contaminants present.

Because plasmas eventually revert back to their original state and since no chemicals are used, no residues are left behind after they have done their work.
