Charged Particles Kill Pathogens and Round up Dust

To keep plants fresh longer in space, Marshall Space Flight Center awarded funding to the University of Wisconsin-Madision to develop a titanium oxide-based device that reduced the amount of decay-inducing ethylene gas in the air. Electrolux (now Dallas-based Aerus Holdings) furthered the technology by developing an air purification product that kills pathogens both in the atmosphere and on surfaces.
