The system monitors in real time the presence of airborne particles and gases inside and outside, and performs purification and disinfection of viruses, molds, bacteria and fungi using four dedicated patented filters. Aura Air recently completed pilots in office towers, hotels, residential buildings, and buses in the United States and other countries around the globe.

In addition, the MoU stipulates that the companies will work to sign a marketing and distribution agreement under which Merchavia will be given the right to distribute and market the system in Cyprus and Greece for a period to be determined under the binding agreement. Completion of negotiations and signing of the binding agreement will be made within 30 days of signing the MoU.
