Unparalleled Opportunity

"In the pursuit of environmental justice and accessibility, our two-phase air filtration device is meant to be as affordable as possible. With climate change causing increased incidents of wildfires across the globe, I hope that our design can help to mitigate the health consequences brought forward by our changing climate.”
