FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. Philips Automotive Lighting North America’s new award-winning GoPure Automotive Clean Air System can be a valuable first line of defense against toxic chemicals that out-gas from new car interiors, the company says. According to the Ecology Center, which recently released a new guide to toxic chemicals in cars at HealthyStuff.org, the chemicals that contribute to the “new car smell” pose a variety of acute and long-term health concerns. Because motorists spend anywhere from 10 to 15 hours per week in their cars, the exposure to toxic chemicals inside a vehicle can create a significant health threat.
The Philips GoPure Automotive Clean Air System is a medical-grade air purifier that lets drivers and passengers breathe clean air by removing toxic VOCs from new car parts along with a wide variety of air pollutants, dust and allergens. The system also helps to reduce bad odors and keeps the air inside the car smelling fresh and clean, Philips says.
Jeff Gearhart, research director at the Ecology Center, noted, “Research shows that vehicle interiors contain a unique cocktail of hundreds of toxic chemicals that off-gas in small, confined spaces. Since these chemicals are not regulated, consumers have no way of knowing the dangers they face.”
Philips GoPure comes ready-to-use with a 12V plug and a choice of mounting options for easy installation: a suction cup for dashboard or windshield mounting and a headrest mount for the back of the front seats.
