Began with the 70’s oil embargo... energy crisis Reduced speeds to 55 mph / Thermostats adjusted to 68 heat & 78 A/C Stringent construction codes resulted in energy efficient buildings More synthetic materials used in construction with less air infiltration “Sick Building Syndrome” emerged in the 80’s Americans spend 90% of their lives indoors 15 million Americans have asthma (80% increase since 1980) 28 million Americans suffer from hay fever & allergies Air pollution contributes to lung disease, including respiratory tract infections, asthma, and lung cancer Today the E.P.A., the U.S. House of Representatives & the World Health Organization rank indoor air pollution the #1 environmental health problem Airborne Biological threats became a concern Mold, mildew and their mycotoxins are exposed as a serious health threat Airborne staph, pneumonia & MRSA at record high in hospitals Deadly nosocomial viruses in hospitals with a 55% death rate & over 85,000 deaths per year
Deaths tied to drug-resistant staph "superbug,“ MRSA may exceed those caused by AIDS, said one public health expert commenting on the new study. More than 90,000 Americans get potentially deadly infections each year.

Filtering Ionization … a misunderstood technology Electronic Air “Cleaners” UV Lights … issue with distance from UV bulb and exposure time Portable units …small rooms, inefficient, ineffective, & costly to operate
The Catalyst Quad-metallic Catalytic Coating Rhodium, Titanium Dioxide, Silver, Copper Each metal contributes to process: Titanium Dioxide forms two highly reactive substances - Hydroxyl Radicals (OH) & Superoxide Ions (O2-1) - both very strong oxidizers Rhodium converts Nitric Oxide to Nitrogen and Oxygen Silver speeds up the Titanium reactions by up to 3X. Proven to kill bacteria. Copper has unique abilities to work with Hydrogen and can improve the functions of Titanium. Also, helps eliminates algae.
The Catalyst Hydrophilic Coatings “Hydrophilic” – means the coating absorbs water vapor (H 2 O) from the air, creating an abundance of Hydrogen and Oxygen for creation of friendly oxidizers Optimum Humidity is 40-60%
Optimum Humidity between 40-60%
OH O3-O3- O3-O3- O2O2 HO 2 H2O2H2O2 - O2O2 - AOP formation of “Friendly Oxidizers” These oxidizers are then picked up in the air stream and dispersed throughout the building …ACTIVELY purifying contaminants!

The REME produces and consumes ozone (O 3 ) to facilitate the AOP reactions. Typically 87% of the ozone produced is decomposed in process. The REME cell is NOT an ozone generator, (emits ≤.02 PPM Ozone), in fact can help regulate O 3 levels. The REME cell is NOT an ozone generator, (emits ≤.02 PPM Ozone), in fact can help regulate O 3 levels. Provides redundancy of oxidizers which react up to 40x faster than ozone alone & without irritation.

Significant Comments By Dr James Marsden, Kansas State Univ, 5/31/05 ( Recognized as foremost authority in microbial control ) 1] “The Chinese government uses our ( American- EcoQuest ) RCI & low level ozone (.02 ppm ) technology to reduce the risk of SARS in subways and buses.” 2] One of the largest cruise ship/ theme park and hotel chains - - achieved a 99.9% reduction of the Norwalk virus. This (EcoQuest) technology is now being employed in their hotel rooms, cruise ships, animal care facilities, ice machines and dumpsters.

Reflective Electro Magnetic Energy utilizes an electro magnetic energy cell to create Ionized-Hydro- Peroxides™, a friendly oxidizer plasma made from oxygen and humidity. This air purifying plasma is propelled into the HVAC duct or plenum by a silent plasma propulsion module that has no moving parts, yet propels the plasma at 2 cfm. This provides for fan or blower-less operation on a 24-hour basis. The purifying plasma will be propelled through the ducts whether the fan or blower is on or not. This permits a hardwire 110 volt plug-in installation that lets the REME run 24/7 without wiring to the fan/blower circuit. Active not passive technology.

Three points to remember about our Air Purification Technologies……. 1. The only active Air Purification Technology which combines up to five nature based technologies to synergistically clean indoor air like nature cleans air outdoors using: Two types of Ionization to reduce particles. Two types of Ionization to reduce particles. UV and a Catalyst to create Oxygen & Hydrogen based friendly oxidizers to reduce microbial contaminants (Photo Catalytic Oxidation) UV and a Catalyst to create Oxygen & Hydrogen based friendly oxidizers to reduce microbial contaminants (Photo Catalytic Oxidation) Low-level ozone to reduce odors Low-level ozone to reduce odors 2.
