Artveoli, Inc.

Artveoli, Inc. is a Silicon Valley based start-up company in the Indoor Air Quality space, making artistic air panels that create fresh air indoors. Smart, connected, modern design flat panels remove excess buildup of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and convert it into Oxygen (O2), improving indoor air quality in homes, offices, schools, hospitals and other closed environments. People spend over 90% of their lives indoors, and there are multiple indoor air contaminants that make people sick. One such contaminant, CO2, is what people exhale, so it must be removed continuously where people are present, otherwise it causes headaches, dizziness, shortness of breath, tiredness, and loss of cognitive performance. The only way to lower the CO2 indoors has always been to get fresh air from the outside, until now. Artveoli Air Panels disrupt indoor ventilation by generating fresh air indoors, making healthier air inside. The Artveoli founders worked together at Stanford Bioengineering making custom microfluidic devices – the core technology of the Artveoli Air Panels. The technology is based on photosynthesis, the process plants use to convert CO2 to O2.

Artveoli has developed closed, controlled photobioreactors that improve efficiency and maximize output. The team has received technology innovation awards and has established global partners for product distribution.
