Seven new models of air purifiers were launched onto the market in India last November. Many of these models contain technologies familiar in Japan. These include the ECONAVI, which conserves energy by automatically recognizing the pattern of air impurities occurring according to the user's lifestyle; Nanoe, which breaks down and minimizes harmful substances contained in fine particulate matter; and HEPA filters that powerfully collect fine particulate matter and other microscopic particles.
They also contain an auto restart feature, which switches them on again automatically after power is restored following a power cut, a feature that takes into account the frequent nature of power cuts in India.
Testing laboratory: Product Analysis Center, Panasonic Corporation
Testing method: Measurement of organic matter attached inside a testing room measuring approximately 11m2
Minimization method: Releasing Nanoe
Test results: Aromatic carboxylic acid: benzoic acid) 98% or more broken down after approximately 8 hours (alkane: hexadecane) 99% or more broken down after approximately 24 hours
