Some of our charcoal carbon filter frames for Mitsubishi Electric ductless systems are 3D printed using environmentally friendly PLA.

Polylactic Acid (PLA) is a biodegradable plastic that offers numerous environmental benefits. Unlike traditional petroleum-based plastics, PLA is made from renewable resources such as corn starch, sugarcane, or cassava roots, which reduces dependence on finite fossil fuels and helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. When disposed of in the right conditions, PLA biodegrades into water and carbon dioxide, leaving no toxic residue. Furthermore, the production process of PLA uses less energy and produces fewer harmful byproducts compared to the production of traditional plastics, making it a more sustainable option. The use of PLA can also help reduce waste in landfills and litter in the natural environment, making it a favorable choice for those concerned with environmental sustainability.

Benefits of Charcoal Air Filters

Mitsubishi Electric MAC-418FT-E compatible charcoal carbon filters
  1. Improved air quality: Charcoal air filters absorb harmful pollutants and allergens such as mold, mildew, pet dander, and smoke. This helps to improve the air quality in your home, reducing the risk of respiratory problems and allergies.
  2. Reduced odors: Charcoal is highly absorbent, making it an effective way to remove unpleasant odors from the air. This makes it ideal for use in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas where strong odors can linger.
  3. Improved respiratory health: Charcoal air filters can help to remove pollutants and allergens from the air, reducing the risk of respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis, and allergies.
  4. Increased energy efficiency: Clean air filters can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, reducing your energy bills and helping to extend the lifespan of your HVAC system.
  5. Better indoor air quality: Charcoal air filters can help to improve the overall indoor air quality in your home, reducing the risk of airborne illnesses and providing a cleaner, healthier living environment.
