Bacteria-decomposing filter unveiled

JULY 24–TOKYO–Daikin Industries, Tokyo University and Fujitsu Laboratory have developed a filter that absorbs and decomposes harmful bacteria, a development that is expected to have wide applications for consumer products.

The filter, made of titanium apatite, decomposes toxins such as influenza virus and staphylococcus aureus. Compared to a regular optical catalyst, the titanium apatite filter can break up bacteria toxins more effectively.

Daikin Industries will apply this technology development to air filter products for homes.
