Four innovations that could slow climate change

The latest technology is key to health 

Climate change has never been more front and center in global initiatives. Slowly, our carbon-heavy lifestyles are beginning to shift. When it comes to the health of our families, we want access to the latest technology to help protect them, like the state-of-the-art Coway home health products. But what is technology’s role in protecting the health of the planet? Here are four innovations that energy experts say could seriously slow climate change.

1. The big players: solar and wind

They’ve been around for decades, but recent advancements have made solar panels and wind turbines more efficient and more effective. So much so, that the average cost of solar or wind power is now cheaper than fossil fuels. But generating clean energy is only one hurdle. The real challenge is storing and distributing that energy.  

2. Batteries and electric vehicles

Lithium-ion batteries are lighter and smaller than earlier rechargeable batteries. They can also be charged faster and more often. These are the energy generators used in electric vehicle fleets around the world, which passed five million cars in 2018.

3. Power-to-x

Engineers have discovered another way to store renewable energy that may surpass batteries in efficiency and cost. The process known as power-to-x uses electrolyzers to extract hydrogen from water. Engineers run an electric current through water and collect the extra hydrogen molecules to us as fuel. These can be burned for heat, stored in fuel cells or turned into chemicals such as methane for processes that require fossil fuels.

4. Carbon capture

Scientists say we need to also remove some of the CO2 we already emitted in order to face climate change head-on. Some companies have experimented with capturing CO2 from power plants and storing it underground. By doing this with biomass plants, where recently-grown plant matter is used instead of burning fossil fuels, power is produced while reducing the amount of emissions.

The solution is in sight

The technology exists. Still, it’s going to take a lot of teamwork and political maneuvering in order to implement these technologies at a wide enough scale to fight climate change.

For climate action, you can do your part from home, too. And, at the least, you can ensure you’re using the latest tech to breathe cleaner air and drink cleaner water with the Airmega air purifier and the Aquamega water purifier.



1Coway air purifiers have been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing.They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2022 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum airflow speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers.
→ Tested with Airmega Aim, 100, 150, 160, AP-1216L, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 200M, Icon, IconS, 230, 240, 250, 250 Art, 250S, 300, 300S, 400, 400S, ProX

299.97% of viruses, bacteria, fungi and pollen were verified to be removed from the air for Coway air purifiers which have Green True HEPA™ filter applied based on the Japan Food Research Laboratories(JFRL) testing according to JEM 1467 standard.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.

4The concentration of ammonia, acetaldehyde and acetic acid were proven to be removed within 30 minutes by FCG Research Institute, Inc. Human Life Science Lab. It is not a demonstration result in the actual use space. Not all odors and gases may be supported. → Tested with Coway Airmega 150, 160, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 400, 400S

5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
