QUT – Science and Engineering – New virus-filtering mask material to be fast-tracked to market

A new company, CelluAir, will bring the world-first, virus-filtering mask material made from agriculture waste to market. The material was developed by QUT process engineer Dr Thomas Rainey and his research team. The material, which can filter nanoparticles smaller than the coronavirus, will be fast-tracked into production after proof of concept testing found it could filter nanoparticles smaller than 100 nanometres, the size of a virus, while retaining high breathability which reduces wearer fatigue.
