Malodor Scent Cartridges
Natural active ingredients have been combined to produce a malodor scent solution that when dry-air diffused, chemically reacts with malodor molecules caused by body odor, smoke, pets, and vomit to virtually eliminate the offending odor. Our malodor ingredients eliminate odors at the molecular level, they don’t mask them with heavy perfumes.
Malodors are the result of several classes of compounds: Nitrogen compounds such as smoke, garbage, urine, and seafood, and organic acids such as vomit, sweat, mold and mildew. Whatever their source, these smells are a very troublesome issue in the shared-mobility space, especially in rideshare and autonomous vehicles. Malodors are even more problematic in driverless (autonomous) vehicles where there isn’t anyone to personally monitor the cabin’s freshness on a ride-by-ride basis.
By combining special active ingredients with a precision dry-air scent diffusion system, malodors can be eliminated in rideshare and autonomous vehicles, and in other environments where necessary. The counter-acting ingredients are molecular compounds that chemically react with the malodor molecules to create a new compound in the air with a different scent characteristic. Known to chemists as a Schiff or Michael chemical reaction, the resultant molecular compound is far less volatile, and has a much less offensive odor characteristic.
Finally, an additional fresh scent can be added to the dry-air diffusion system to further eliminate odors from smoke, garbage, and even pet biological evacuations. For autonomous shared mobility fleets, sensors can be added to continuously monitor the vehicle’s interior for offending odors based on these nitrogen and organic acid compounds and automatically trigger the dry-air diffusion and release a counter-acting malodor ingredient.
