CelluAir will bring the world’s first, virus-filtering mask material made from agriculture waste

The research on the Virus-filtering mask focuses on mining out valuable data on investment pockets, growth opportunities, and major  vendors to help clients understand their competitor’s methodologies. The research also segments the Virus-filtering mask on the basis of end user, product type, application, and demography for the forecast period 2020–2027. Comprehensive analysis of critical aspects such as impacting factors and competitive landscape are showcased with the help of vital resources, such as charts, tables, and infographics.

The material was developed by QUT process engineer Dr. Thomas Rainey and his research team.

The material, which can filter nanoparticles smaller than the coronavirus, will be fast-tracked into production after proof of concept testing found it could filter nanoparticles smaller than 100 nanometers, the size of a virus, while retaining high breathability which reduces wearer fatigue.

CelluAir, a start-up managed by Australian commercialization company Innovyz, signed a license agreement and a shareholders’ agreement with QUT on Friday. CelluAir will begin an accelerated six-week scope of work to scale up the technology to bring it to market as soon as possible.

CelluAir will be a joint venture between QUT and Innovyz.

Innovyz is known for having incubated many advanced manufacturing start-ups from research including listing Amaero (3DA) from Monash University, and Titomic (TTT) from CSIRO on the Australian Stock Exchange in 2019 and 2017 respectively.

The COVID-19 outbreak is currently going the world over, the Virus-filtering mask report covers the impact of the corona-virus on top company’s growth. This research report categorizes as the key players in the Hot Virus-filtering mask and also gives a comprehensive study of Covid-19 impact analysis of the  by regions like (Americas, Europe APAC, and EMEA).

“The new material is relatively cheap to produce and is biodegradable making it sustainable for single use,” Dr. Rainey, from QUT Science and Engineering Faculty’s School of Mechanical, Medical and Process Engineering, said.

“Our tests showed the new material was more breathable than commercial face masks, including surgical masks. Breathability is the pressure or effort the wearer has to use to breathe through the mask.

“The higher the breathability the greater the comfort and reduction in fatigue. This is an important factor for people who have to wear masks for long periods or those with existing respiratory conditions.”

The report offers key drivers that propel the growth in the global Virus-filtering mask. These insights help  players in devising strategies to gain  presence. The research also outlined the restraints of the . Insights on opportunities are mentioned to assist  players in taking further steps by determining the potential in untapped regions.

Innovyz general manager Tom Kenyon said the company specialized in taking research from the laboratory and moving to market.

“We’re super excited to be working with QUT which has a great reputation in research and are very focussed on commercial outcomes. Many researchers want their research to have impact and the quickest way to have impact is to bring that research to market.”
