Because ammonia and other VOCs pose a great risk to the health of astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV), this technology will potentially be of great value to broader NASA missions in addition to the primary focus of PLSS contaminant control.
Army: there is substantial overlap in the performance requirements for military collective protection systems and spacecraft/personal life support systems. We are actively pursuing commercial and demonstration opportunities with the Department of Defense related to our previous Army SBIR contract. Industrial Application: the single-use media has been successfully demonstrated in a leading chip manufacturer's cleanroom for 6 months. We have received a purchase order for 1200 square feet, and are pursuing related opportunities in a broad range of additional markets. Residential application: the single-use media is also effective at removing ammonia and other pet odor components in residential settings. The visual indication of filter life has proven to be a great feature for improving customer awareness of air quality and filter performance. Serionix has received tremendous interest and feedback from pet owners, and has decided to actively pursue the billion dollar residential air purifier market.
