UK-based Plasma Clean was founded by two University of Manchester scientists, to be a research-led manufacturer of air quality products for commercial premises.

Our core business is kitchen ventilation. We’ve a range of products that control grease, smoke and odour. They reduce duct-cleaning costs, prevent fires and resolve odour complaints. Making workforces healthier and happier.

These positive effects, on both businesses and health, led us to developing Indoor Air Quality products outside of the kitchen. In 2016, we started to utilise our technology to vastly improve ventilation systems throughout commercial buildings.

Today, we’re established in a wide variety of sectors; right at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19. Our innovative range of certified, retrofitted and standalone solutions boast a 99% microbial kill rate. Imagine removing the COVID-19 virus, and other harmful microbes from an office, a kitchen, a gym or a dental surgery in just 11 minutes… We’re already there.

And if you’re overseas? We work with international agents who can specify and supply our products worldwide.


It’s 2008. Two University of Manchester scientists, Dr David Glover and Professor Christopher Whitehead, set up Plasma Clean to manufacture products that enhance air quality and create a cleaner, safer environment.

We began as a venture capital-backed spin-out company formed to commercialise non-thermal or cold-plasma technology for air treatment. Our odour-control product, Xtract 2100, first hit commercial kitchens in 2008

Today, Plasma Clean operates globally from our Manchester base. We’re an established and trusted pioneer of indoor-air-quality products for all commercial sectors.


Dr David Glover, holder of a doctorate in Environmental Microbiology, is our co-founder and Technical Director, leading the firm’s R&D. He’s been joined by Chief Executive Officer Steve Keogh who, with over 20 years’ experience in commercial business, leads the growth and development at Plasma Clean.

The rest of our excellent team is built up of established industry experts in sales, commercial projects, logistics and marketing.

Professor Christopher Whitehead, Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and expert on the use of plasmas for the purification of indoor air and the destruction of odours, remains on board as a product inventor.
