Nano-sized electrostatic atomized water particles,nanoe™, that improve air quality

Proven benefits of electrostatic atomized water particles,nanoe™,through experiments

Experiments have newly proven that nanoe suppress Swine-origin influenza virus.
The benefits range widely from inhibiting viruses and bacteria, reducing residue pesticides, suppressing mold and allergen, moisturizing skin and hair, and to maintaining vegetable freshness.
Experiments by universities and research institutions have proven the effects of nanoe. The world is focusing its attention on this breakthrough technology that could be the key to the air purification.
