Title: Use of manganese oxide and activated carbon fibers for removing a particle, volatile organic compound or ozone from a gas

Abstract

The present invention provides for a device for reducing a volatile organic compound (VOC) content of a gas comprising a manganese oxide (MnO x) catalyst. The manganese oxide (MnO x) catalyst is capable of catalyzing formaldehyde at room temperature, with complete conversion, to CO 2 and water vapor. The manganese oxide (MnO x) catalyst itself is not consumed by the reaction of formaldehyde into CO 2 and water vapor. The present invention also provides for a device for reducing or removing a particle, a VOC and/or ozone from a gas comprising an activated carbon filter (ACF) on a media that is capable of being periodically regenerated.
