Ed Schmidt, co-founder of Easy-Air Clean Air Innovation, is a serial entrepreneur who has teamed up with an electrical engineer and inventor to launch his third venture. "I met my co-founder, Gal Nahum, at the VA clinic where we discovered that we served in the same unit during the Gulf War, " Schmidt said. "He was developing clean air technology and needed a business development partner."
The veterans launched Easy-Air in April, 2016. The company uses corona discharge technology to develop clean air applications. "The corona discharge creates an energy force field that incinerates particulate matter and gases when they pass through the energy field," Schmidt explained. "The by-product is oxygen and ozone, which are good for the environment and replenish the Ozone Layer. We have clean air/clean diesel applications for vehicle exhaust emission systems that incinerates particulates and greenhouse gases so that there is no longer any need for a catalytic converter."
In addition to vehicle applications, the company's corona discharge technology has applications in cleaning the air for high tech manufacturing, burn centers, hospitals, aviation and home use. "Our differentiator is that we actually clean the air and enhance the environment versus the competition that just filters the air," Schmidt said. "We never have to dispose of any filters or the system itself. Competitors' filters provide 80% effectiveness at best while ours eliminates 100% of unwanted atmospheric particulate matter and noxious gases."
