Photocatalytic Oxidizer (PCO) Technology
NOT Recommended for Indoor Air Quality Control

AirMATION Unit Air Technology Solutions is a leading edge air purification company providing our clients with the best available technology that has been thoroughly tested and proven safe and effective. Based on research and independent laboratory tests, the Photocatalytic Oxidizer (PCO) technology is shown to be a health and safety hazard as presently available to the Fire/EMS First Responder Industry. The PCO health risks far exceed any benefits of this technology.  Please read on about the carcinogenic hazards and why Air Technology Solutions can NOT recommend its use.

Jim Rosenthal’s recent article on the scientific research at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) finds that although Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) reduces indoor Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), it produces significant amounts of harmful formaldehyde (classified as a human carcinogen) and acetaldehyde as indoor toxicant byproducts.
