These air purifying curtains from IKEA are all set improve your home’s indoor air quality
While most of us are aware of the air pollution level in our cities, we do not realize that often, the air quality inside our homes tends to become even poorer than in some of the highest polluted cities of the world. A recent study had found that cooking a Sunday roast heavily deteriorates a house’s indoor air quality.
Thankfully, you will be able to shop for a solution for this in the same place you buy your budget roasting pans. IKEA is working on a specially-designed, air-purifying curtain called the GUNRID.
“Besides enabling people to breathe better air at home, we hope that GUNRID will increase people’s awareness of indoor air pollution, inspiring behavioural changes that contribute to a world of clean air,” Inter IKEA Group Head of Sustainability Lena Pripp-Kovac said in a Monday press release.
The GUNRID’s powers are enabled by a mineral treatment that allows it to mimic photosynthesis: breaking down harmful chemicals when exposed to either natural or artificial light. IKEA worked with European and Asian universities to develop the technology over the past few years.
