Inspired by: When I was in high school, my family moved into our new house, but with relatively high concentration of formaldehyde and VOCs . We thought air purifiers are too expensive especially for the filters, which need to be changed often, so we just used ventilation to dilute the pollution. After two months, I was diagnosed with anemia. This experience inspires me to solve the problem of indoor VOCs and formaldehyde pollution, it's my honor to use my design to help others avoid following my track.
