Bring natural air into the home

The need

The environment and its impact on our health is a fundamental concern. The WHO estimates that 91% of the world’s population live in places where poor air quality exceeds guideline limits. This also affects the air inside the home.

The solution

Solaga has developed Alwe, a wall panel made up of microalgae that absorb pollutants to purify the air. Microalgal biofilms used as interior decor have excellent potential as air cleansers thanks to their natural uptake of dangerous pollutants. An improved tank system has been developed along with a complete service offer.

The value proposition

• Sustainable.
• Aesthetic.
• Removes pollutants such as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.
• Research shows that Alwe is also able to absorb nitrogen oxides.
