IKEA- a Swedish-founded multinational home furnishings company is set to launch an air-purifying curtain coated with a mineral-based surface that breaks down common pollutants.

In a bid to protect people at home, Ikea has come up with Gunrid, an air-purifying curtain, coated with a mineral-based surface that breaks down common pollutants.

The surface of the curtain is treated with a mineral-based photocatalyst that is activated when it comes into contact with light – both sunlight and indoor light. It then destroys common indoor pollutants like odors and formaldehyde, a known carcinogen.

The curtains will be available at Ikea stores by 2020.
