Default Is there something of a 'Pollen Filter" in an Opel Astra?

Is there something of a 'Pollen Filter" in an Opel Astra's A/C?

It was always mentioned in their advertisments.

If so is it some kind of electrostatic maintenance free bypass or Is it made of paper element and theres a way to replace it?

pollen filter in thac is basically a filter which cleans the air and removes the pollen present in the air.A lot of people are allergic to pollen grains and get asthmatic if they inhale pollen.so,the opel astra has a pollen filter.
the nature of the pollen filter is electrostatic.when the air is passed through the ducts,and the air is passed through an electrostatic charge(which has negative ions),these attach themselves to the pollen and make them electrically neutral and hence are filtered.not sure on the exact process.hopefully,another member could correct me and enlighten me as well.
