The ScentAir® ION ProtectTM active air purifying systems eliminates airborne pathogens through ion technology, providing naturally safer air with every breath 

Charlotte, NC – Dec. 14, 2020 – In time for the holiday season, ScentAir®, the global leader in scent marketing, today announced the launch of ScentAir® ION Protect active air purifying systems, using patented GPS® Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization® (NPBI) technology. The patented needlepoint bipolar ionization indoor air purifying technology has been tested to confirm a 99.8% reduction rate on a static SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) surface strain within 30 minutes, plus many other common airborne pathogens such as Norovirus, MRSA, E. Coli, Staph Bacteria and more. 

“ScentAir® ION Protect active air purifying systems work to safely clean the air inside buildings of many sizes and types. This technology can give business owners comfort and peace of mind, knowing they are doing everything they can to help their customers and employees feel safer this holiday season. And feel safer as they return to work or venture out for shopping and festivities with loved ones,” said Logan Andres, Vice President of Products & Marketing, ScentAir.

Unlike common air purifiers that passively wait for harmful particles to run through them, ScentAir® ION Protect purifiers seek out pollutants in the air. The patented NPBI technology releases positive & negative ions into the air to actively combat airborne health hazards.  

“We wanted to ensure the highest safety standards for our customers and spent time researching best-in-class air purification technology,” said Andres. “We are excited to bring-to-market a product lineup that not only cleans the air but does so safely and naturally without producing Ozone or other harmful byproducts, so you can bring outdoor freshness indoors to your offices, retail shops and medical facilities.” 

Key Benefits of the ION Protect, include:

  • Reduces harmful pathogens in the air (Ex. COVID-19): During the NPBI process, contact with ions disrupts pathogens’ surface proteins, rendering them inactive and unable to replicate. 
  • Targets particles (Ex. smoke, dust, pollen): When ions disperse throughout a space, such as in an office building or a retail shop, they combine with particles suspended in the air. This creates a snowball effect in which particles of opposite polarities begin to cluster together, which makes them easier to capture in filtration systems.
  • Neutralizes odors: The ScentAir ION Protect breaks down odors, such as those in restaurants or medical offices, into basic harmless compounds, removing malodors and harmful volatile organic compound (VOC’s) leaving indoor air smelling fresh.
  • Saves energy: By keeping indoor air cleaner, the ScentAir ION Protect reduces the amount of air required from outside to keep things fresh — saving businesses and franchises initial ventilation equipment costs and up to 30 percent on energy consumption.

The new ScentAir® ION Protect active air purifying systems, using patented GPS® Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization®, is available in three models: ION Pure, ION Defend and the ION Target. To find out which model is right for your business, visit
