The World's Only Corn Palace is pleased to announced the recent installation of an air purification system in the building's ventilation systems. While this Corn Palace will be 100 years old in 2021, the HVAC systems are fairly modern and with the addition of Global Plasma System's Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI™️) technology, they safely clean indoor air. This patented technology produces a high concentration of positive and negative ions, delivering them to the space via the ventilation system. Within the air stream, ions attach to particles, where they combine, become larger and are more easily filtered from the air. When ions come in contact with pathogens, they disrupt the pathogens’ surface proteins, rendering them inactive.
With the upcoming basketball season and other indoor events we hope it will provide a little piece of mind for our visitors to know that the City of Mitchell and the World's Only Corn Palace are taking steps to provide the safest environment possible. The addition of air purification in the building will help prevent the spread of both the Corona virus and other contagions as well.
