Problem Addressed

Household combustion devices, motor vehicles, industrial facilities and forest fires are common sources of air pollution. Pollutants of major public health concern include particulate matter, carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide. Outdoor and indoor air pollution cause respiratory and other diseases and is an important source of morbidity and mortality.

Solution Overview

The Redcube Aura Air pollution management solution helps improve peoples health by helping them do the most basic, yet most important thing in life – breathe. It is an all-in-one air filtration, disinfection and monitoring product that has successfully completed clinical tests specifically related to its efficacy against dangerous viruses. The innovative air management system eliminates 99.9% of viruses, bacteria, mould and VOCs through UVC ultraviolet light technology while providing real-time data, insights and recommendations. In indoor areas with elevated CO2 levels, air purifiers can remove up to 12% of the CO2 in the air before the filter is saturated.

Aura Air is able to:

  1. Provide info for CO, NOX, NO, NO2, O3 (Ozone), VOC, PM 2.5, PM 10, Temperature, Humidity & Weather forecast.
  2. Detect and remove indoor high levels of smoke, CO, CO2, VOC, PM 2.5, PM 10, Temperature & Humidity

Aura Air uses a patented AI to optimise its performance. Its sensors can detect conditions where the COVID-19 virus is known to be at its most dangerous – for instance humidities above 80% – or just simply detecting dangerous levels of gases or pollutants in a room. Research shows it is also able to remove almost all traces of airborne COVID-19 virus.

The WiFi connection means it can be controlled via mobile app, Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. The mobile app allows for personalised timings of when Aura Air goes into full power mode. It also notifies users of the days remaining before filter needs replacing, and tells you what the current indoor air quality is.

Redcube Aura Air has an average energy use of 24W per hour, which is low compared to ventilation systems and you can programme when it operates at higher power to reduce energy consumption.

The solution has been designed to work alongside other filtration systems. In the case of hospital environments, is placed directly in with the patients or in corridors. It is simple to set up and offers a good coverage of up to 600 sq.ft.

The Aura Air unit is completely recyclable at end of life, the plastic is melted down and poured into new moulds and the filters are regenerated via a thermal reactivation process.

Case Study


A test was carried out using Temtop LKC-1000S+ professional air quality detector to determine the effectiveness of Aura Air in hospital wards. A baseline measurement was taken then Aura Air was turned on at the highest setting for 1 hour, before a second set of measurements. The results are shown below:

In addition, research carried out on Covid wards at Addenbrooke’s Hospital suggests that air filter machines removed almost all traces of airborne Covid virus.
