• nanoe™ X technology brings the natural cleaning properties of hydroxyl radicals to the indoor environment
• Inhibits certain allergens, bacteria and viruses by up to 99.9%
• Effective on hard surfaces, soft furnishings and indoor air
• No filter required – the nanoe generator is maintenance-free
• Now available in more indoor units for residential and commercial ranges

UK, August 12, 2020 – The well-being benefits of nature are well known and Panasonic’s innovative nanoe™ X technology brings nature’s balance indoors. Abundant in nature, hydroxyl radicals (also known as OH radicals), inhibit certain pollutants, viruses and bacteria to clean and deodorise. Panasonic’s nanoe™ X technology can bring these incredible benefits indoors so that hard surfaces, soft furnishings and the indoor environment can be a cleaner and more pleasant place to be. This innovative technology is now available in even more indoor units, suitable for a wide variety of applications, whether at home, at work, visiting doctor’s or dentist surgeries, hotels, shops, cafés and restaurants etc.

A naturally occurring process
Hydroxyl radicals inhibit the growth of certain pollutants such as: allergens, bacteria, viruses, moulds, odours and certain hazardous substances, by breaking them down and inhibiting the unpleasant effects. This naturally occurring process has major benefits for indoor environments. Panasonic’s nanoe™ X technology takes this a step further to help create an ideal indoor environment. By creating hydroxyl radicals enveloped by water, nanoe™ X technology significantly boosts their effectiveness, increasing hydroxyl radicals’ lifetime from less than a second in nature, to more than 600 seconds – 10 minutes indoors. Another benefit is that the hydroxyl radicals enveloped in water, generated by nanoe™ X, can reach every corner of a space and its surfaces and can spread over large areas. Thanks to this advanced technology, even tightly woven fabrics can be treated, meaning that curtains, blinds, carpets and furniture can all benefit from this technology to inhibit hazardous substances – including on hard surfaces and of course, in the air that we breathe.

The effectiveness of nanoe™ X technology has been independently verified and tested by international third-party laboratories in Germany, Denmark, Malaysia and Japan. The nanoe generator is maintenance free as it does not require any filters and is made with high strength, long lasting Titanium. This proven technology has been in use for many years. In fact, the first nanoe device was developed by Panasonic in 2003. After years of R&D investments, the technology has been improved with the launch of nanoe™ X, with a 10- and 20-times higher performance1. nanoe™ X Generator Mark 2, which is available in Panasonic units from 2020, produces 9.6 trillion hydroxyl radicals per second. Greater amounts of hydroxyl radicals contained in nanoe™ X lead to outstanding effects.

Expanding availability to more indoor units
nanoe™ X comes as standard in Panasonic’s residential Etherea air conditioning range and the Floor Console units. The company is now expanding nanoe™ X availability in Panasonic’s PACi and VRF commercial range, including in the cassette 90:90, new duct units and floor console units over the coming months.

Tony Nielsen, UK Marketing Manager for Panasonic concludes, “In today’s health-conscious world, we care about exercising, what we eat and of course about what we touch and breathe in. At Panasonic, we are committed to constantly improving our solutions and nanoe technology has been developing since its launch in 2003. It is exciting to see Panasonic nanoe™ X technology being used in a wide range of applications for cleaning air and surfaces such as trains, elevators, cars, home appliances and personal beauty, as well as in air conditioning, bringing the benefits of good outdoor air, indoors.”
