Our technology

TEQOYA's technologies all have the same focus: to protect people from indoor air pollution on 24/7 without harming the planet. They are based on more than 20 years of research, that started even before TEQOYA was founded and has been intensified since then to further improve the quality of our solutions by meeting new needs. TEQOYA currently holds seven patents covering ozone-free air ionization, electrofiltration without electrical discharge, ion spread in air stream, formaldehyde treatment, and filtering air inlets (for the development of new applications in the construction sector).

The principles of TEQOYA's technologies

Ionization

Logo picto room

At the core of TEQOYA air purifiers is the ozone-free air ionization technology, initially created by Professor Jacques Breton - a member of the New York Academy of Sciences and Officer of the Palmes Académiques in France.

TEQOYA air ionizers are a breakthrough in the air purifier market: they recreate the electrostatic abatement of pollutant particles indoors, as it happens in the purest natural environments. The intense negative ion production of TEQOYA air purifiers is completely safe (certified ozone-free by independent laboratories). On top of their effectiveness in purifying the air, the negative ions help restore a permanent level of negative ions, similar to the level found in natural environments. Moreover, numerous scientific studies have shown our health benefits from air rich in negative ions.

Ioniseurs TEQOYA source d'ions négatifs

The core of TEQOYA's ionization technology is based on specially manufactured needles, integrated in a particular geometric and electrostatic conformation. We call this conformation ion optics. This enables the plasma to be confined to the tip of the needle. Bring your finger close to the tip of a needle... you will see this low-energy ion-generating plasma appear as a bluish halo.

The electronic performance of our air purifiers enables you to benefit from a high level of safety and reliability along with a highly efficient energy consumption.

Since 2014, TEQOYA has led the development of this high performance technology and annually dedicates 20% of its turnover to R&D. We strive to further improve the ozone-free air ionization process and expand its scope of application.

LEAF

Logo picto room

Launched in 2022, our new LEAF - Low Energy Active Filter - technology widens the application of ionization to air filtration in a hybrid technology. LEAF combines the unique performance of TEQOYA's technologies:

  • Powerful, ozone-free air ionization
  • Electrofiltration technology that traps ionized particles in a cleanable filter
  • Very low energy consumption, especially when compared to professional products (highly energy-consuming)

LEAF technology is free of the electrical discharges associated with previous electrostatic collection techniques, and thus provides a safe, reliable, cleanable, and highly energy-efficient air filtration solution!

This groundbreaking hybrid technology offers a high level of technical performance, the result of three years of intense research and supported by two patents: air ionization without ozone emissions, and electrofiltration without electrical discharge. Adapted to the professional standards, LEAF is already present in solutions co-developed with our industrial partners.

Our partners

Our technologies are developed locally in partnership with leading industries and laboratories, mainly in France:

Industries

Groupe Aldes

Since 2021, TEQOYA has partnered with the Aldes Group - a global player in building air quality solutions - to create unique applications that incorporate our LEAF technology. Aldes and Teqoya have co-developed the first filtering air inlet compliant with French regulations, and also the innovative ALANA air purifier.

Coferming

French manufacturer of high-end roller shutters, Coferming has partnered with TEQOYA to develop a new application of LEAF technology: an indoor roller shutter box that purifies the air coming from outdoors.

Groupe Ridoret

The Ridoret Group manufactures high-performance and durable joinery for professionals and individuals. Ridoret and TEQOYA are leading together an ambitious research project to bring tomorrow new solutions for energy performance and air quality of buildings.

Carcept Prev

TEQOYA Nomad air purifiers are tested, approved and recommended by the Carcept Prev Foundation of the Klesia Group - the mutual insurance of road hauliers.

Laboratories

TEQOYA places a strategic emphasis on R&D and allocates 20% of its turnover to this field. We have our own design office, where prototypes and exploratory tests are carried out for product development and industrialization.

This enables in-depth experimentation of our technology in the laboratory and in the field, and also enables us to test the endurance of our devices.

We work with many laboratories affiliated to the CNRS, well-known for their expertise in fields essential to TEQOYA. We also work with the CERTAM and the Carnot Institute for the development and the experimental qualification of our solutions.

Together with the certification of independent laboratories, TEQOYA technology is both efficient and guaranteed to last.
