Tbilisi, Georgia, October 09, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- An innovative, newly developed portable device replicates a tree’s process and transforms polluted air into fresh, mineral enriched, air. The device, developed by the Tbilisi, Georgia-based startup Treepex
, uses CRISPR technology to provide a solution to the ever growing air pollution problem.
Disappearing forests and increased emissions are the main causes of the evolving air pollution disaster, taking the lives of over 5.5 million people each year. Especially those living in larger cities are affected by air pollution related diseases.
That is why the greenovative startup Treepex - based in one of the most pollution-affected countries globally - decided to take action. “I knew I had to take action when I started having troubles breathing during summer in my hometown,” Lasha Kvantaliani, CTO & Co-founder of Treepex said, “and I knew it had to be technologically innovative, portable and easy to use, so you can take it anywhere you like at any time.”
With the DNA of millions of leaves compressed into the brain of the device, the so-called cartridge, the entrepreneurs say the device will become an inseparable part of life. The mobile app continuously synchronizes, showing updates on polluted air transformed into fresh oxygen, while monitoring pulmonary activity.
The campaign, launched as “breathe your own forest,” invites interested parties to subscribe via Treepex.com to become one of its closed-beta version users and be the first to try the device out.
