Svenska  Aerogel has received an advance notice of a granted patent regarding a method for gas filtration. The patent will be published in a bulletin from the European Patent Office around January 25, 2017.

The patent covers a process for manufacturing Svenska Aerogels material Quartzene® that can be used to manufacture filter media to trap gaseous air pollutants by impregnation with various types of capture chemicals. The granted patent provides protection for the manufacturing of the impregnated material. The Quartzene® filter media is characterized by a capture capacity 2-4 times larger than competitive filter media. Furthermore Quartzene® is not flammable unlike filter media based on active carbon.
