Willow Industries, a provider of cannabis decontamination technology and microbial control services, has launched an air filtration system designed to capture and remove airborne contaminants called WillowAir.
Willow Industries has engineered a science-backed and cost-effective solution to the evolving needs of the cannabis industry. The WillowAir system effectively counters inhalation hazards of ground cannabis dust, respiratory irritants, airborne pathogens like Aspergillus, and overall health risks in cultivation environments.
As a multifunctional system, WillowAir plays a crucial role in combating the pervasive threat of airborne contaminants affecting plant quality, product safety, and regulatory compliance. By lowering exposure to microbial burden and cross-contamination, the system proactively maintains a clean environment throughout upstream processes.
"As a company committed to innovation and excellence, we are proud to be a part of the movement towards employee wellness in this industry. Consumer safety and product quality have always been our ethos, and WillowAir further supports our mission", said Jill Ellsworth, founder and CEO, Willow Industries.
Through collaboration, Willow's Science and Engineering teams developed the WillowAir, a MERV 13-rated system that captures contaminants as small as 0.3 microns. Each WillowAir unit efficiently filters 10,000 cu. ft., while powerful fans achieve five air changes per hour, ensuring necessary airflow for optimal growing conditions.
With its adaptable installation options and scalable design, WillowAir is able to cover multiple operational needs, including grow rooms, post-harvest production, packaging areas, and office spaces. In this function, the system operates purely on air filtration without the need for UV, ozone, or adaptive components.
Willow Industries also has launched an online store, providing easy access to purchase WillowAir. The store also hosts a suite of products necessary to establish and maintain a successful, clean growing environment. Called Clean Cannabis Essentials, the store is curated by microbiology and quality assurance experts to provide insight into the holistic and proactive measures recommended by the Willow Scientific team, including tools from industry-leading companies dedicated to GMP-focused standards.
