AFL was born from NASA

AFL technology began in space with NASA in 1994...

when NASA began planning for deep space exploration including proposed manned missions to Mars such as the "Constellation Mission Program", in 2013 which required sustaining life in space for months and years at a time.

But NASA had a big problem with viruses and bacteria

Before preparing for such deep space exploration, NASA had to find an answer to ethylene gas destroying plants and vegetables in the space shuttle. Ethylene gas is the naturally occurring hormone released by plants and vegetables to signal ripering. On earth, it is naturally dispersed into the atmosphere, but in a sealed spacecraft ethylene build up becomes toxic. This will kill those very same plants and vegetables if not removed.

But there was a solution...

The scientists at NASA developed a new green technology called Photo Catalytic Oxidation (PCO) to remove ethylene gas build up. NASA developed PCO technology works by breaking down the ethylene gas into harmless Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Water (H2O) by exposure to Ultra Violet (UV) light in the presence of a Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) catalyst.

Further tests by NASA revealed...

PCO technology did not only eliminate ethylene gas build up but also destroyed all carbon based impurities in the air such as: Bad Odours, Volitile Organic Compounds (VOC's), Mould, Fungi, Bacteria, and Viruses.

Prof. Nabarun Ghosh and his team of scientisis have further enhanced the NASA developed PCO technology by creating:

AFL BI-POLAR® Ionization Technology


Prof. Nabarun Ghosh and his team of scientists at   
AFL have improved the original
NASA Developed PCO Technology.

"We have created a further advanced form of PCO called Air For Life Photocatalytic Oxidation (AFLPCO®). AFLPCO® involves the use of a special hydrating gel with a five metal nano catalyst. Prof. Nabarun Ghosh Air For Life UK protection against viruses
The AFL nano five metal catalyst is scientifically engineered to be more reactive than titanium dioxide (TiO2) alone and is by far superior to any other PCO catalyst producing unparalleled results compared to any other machine on the market today."

Dr. Nabarun Ghosh obtained two Ph.D. Degrees, one from the University of Calcutta, India and the other one is from The University of North Texas Denton. He had his Post-Doctoral experience at the Baylor College of Medicine, Houston. He is in research for last 21 years. During his Post-Doctoral research he performed ultra-structural studies of parasympathetic innervations of the heart of 3 deficient knockout mice using in situ hybridization, immunocytochemical labeling with Transmission Electron Microscopy. He taught at the University of North Texas (1992-98), Richland College, Dallas, South Texas Com. College, McAllen. Presently he is serving as the Associate Professor of Biology at the West Texas A&M University, Canyon. Dr. Ghosh’s area of research is rather vast, Aerobiology and Air Quality, Cytology, Electron Microscopy, Tissue Culture, Plant Pathology, Virology, and Water Quality. He established a molecular core at the Killgore Research Center at the Killgore Research Center of the university. He has collaboration with Penn State, Cornell University, Texas Tech, Lubbock and UNT, Denton. He has published 60 or more research articles in reputed scientific journals. He served as the President for the Texas Society for Microscopy (2008-2009). He is a member of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) and 10 other societies. He presented his research nationally and internationally.
