Air0 – Passion for Air Purification

From the land of the cleanest air in the world*

We at Air0 are truly passionate about air purification. We come from Finland, the country with the cleanest air in the world*, and we think everyone should have the luxury of breathing clean air.

Having the luxury to breathe the cleanest air in the world did not come to us out of thin air. We too, used to have severe air quality problem back in the 70’s. At that time, the Finnish government decided to react on the matter and set up two research groups dedicated to particle research. Long story short, as a result Finland breathes the cleanest air, but also leads the world in the particle research.

Our story is closely linked to the story of our country, as our CTO and co-founder Mr. Markku Rajala was one of the professionals taking part of these national particle research programs. Now, together with the rest of the highly skilled Air0 professionals, we are on a mission to enable the whole world to breathe the cleanest air.

Decades of knowledge harnessed to fight the single greatest health risk of our time.

Before Air0, Mr. Rajala was involved in the indoor air industry in the Asian market. While spending time there, it became obvious that there was a serious air quality problem and people were desperately searching for a solution. They wanted an air purifier that would really work, one that would actually clean the whole room. They needed air purifier that was capable of producing large amounts of pure air, while being silent and requiring little maintenance. They needed a new innovation for the air purification.

The problem, however, goes way beyond Asia. According to WHO, each year millions of people die as a result of being exposed to bad air quality. 9 out of 10 people in the world breathe polluted air**. Besides deaths, polluted air affects directly to health and wellbeing, and causes significant health effects. According to WHO, household air pollution is the world’s single greatest environmental health risk.

Introducing smAIRt® – the luxury of clean air

Air0 was founded in 2013. Think “Air Zero” as in “zero particles for your lungs” or “zero pollutants in the air”, which ever you prefer. The point is, it really does the job.

It combines the best of the traditional air purification technologies, mechanical and electrical filtration, and does it in a unique and smart way. Brought to you in a sleek package, designed to the finest details, it’s an air purifier that does not have to be hidden.
