FRESHUP: HOW ODORS CAN BE REMOVED FROM FABRICS EASILY AND ON THE GO
Imagine being able to remove odors and bacteria easily and on the go, without needing to wash your clothes. In the latest episode of our "From KNOW-HOW to WOW" podcast, we talk about how our FreshUp device uses plasma technology to remove odors from fabrics simply by brushing over them. Plasma occurs naturally in the universe. During the show, Tobias Wende, a Bosch electronic system engineer, talks about how they were able to incorporate plasma technology, which releases active plasma particles to dissolve simple odor molecules, into a device the size of a glasses case.
What an unpleasant smell is, however, differs from one nose to another, says Antonie Bierling, researcher at the Universities of Dresden and Jena. She works on finding out more about which molecules stink and which ones have a lovely scent and shares her know-how with Shuko and Geoff.
