The effectiveness of Plasmacluster Ion technology has been proven at 28 Institutions in Japan and around the world. The institutions have gathered validation data for Plasmacluster Ion generating devices.
A study conducted by IIT, Delhi reveals that Plasmacluster Ion (PCI) technology from SHARP removes Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), which are toxic air borne viruses. Consistent usage of PCI technology is effective in decomposing of Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and the study concluded that this would lead to the improvement of indoor air environment and contribute to the healthier life of the users around the world.
