NPBI Reduces Mold in School
Indiana School District
Two elementary schools had serious mold issues were discovered (mold spore counts well over 50,000 CFU's); teachers and students were complaining about headaches, allergies, and asthma attacks; some students were unable to attend school due to the unhealthy indoor air. The school called in NPBI™ to help design a solution to reduce the mold and improve the overall indoor air quality of the schools.
Solution: NPBI™ was installed in both elementary schools.
After the installation of NPBI™ teachers and staff
were interviewed to ask if they had noticed a difference in the indoor air
quality-everyone interviewed stated the indoor air had improved by a noticeable
difference and by improving the indoor air quality students were able to attend
school. Pre and post indoor air quality
testing were performed to validate the improvements.

ripKurrent Announces Sustainability Management Partners (SMP) as a Technical Partner
ripKurrent will use SMP's O2Prime needlepoint ionization technology to drastically improve overall indoor air conditions for its customers
while reducing total energy consumption by 30-50%.
Boca Raton, FL, April 5, 2018- ripKurrent, LLC is excited to announce that it has entered into a technology partnership with Sustainability Management Partners (SMP) of Evansville, Indiana.
ripKurrent will use SMP's O2Prime needlepoint ionization technology to drastically improve overall indoor air conditions for its customers, while reducing total energy consumption by 30-50%.
"I have been a big fan of ionization since I was first exposed to it more than 5 years ago, and now having the ability to work together with SMP on developing customized solutions for the industries we serve will take the technology to new heights in the marketplace," said Jade Culbertson, ripKurrent co-founder and Chief Growth Officer.
ripKurrent and SMP understand that most people spend the majority of their time indoors, whether it's at work,
"Aside from the fact that the technology produces the safest and healthiest indoor environment, it can also reduce the amount of ventilation air that is brought into a facility, which can have an enormous
Conditioned outside ventilation air is a large consumer of energy in commercial facilities, in some cases equaling up to 10% of the total energy cost. By utilizing Bi-Polar Ionization and following ASHRAE-62.1-2016 VRP (Ventilation Rate Procedure), this technology can reduce a facility's outside air intake by as much as 70% in some applications, producing a tremendous
