Our products and solutions are designed to take an environmentally conscious approach to combatting the spread of infectious disease in the Healthcare and Cleaning industries, as well as contributing to the sustainability of global natural resources in the energy and agriculture markets.
What started as an attempt to provide healthier/safer environments through the use of chemicals, has resulted in direct consequences that by their very nature, result in an immediate effect on our health and the environment we live and work in. In other words, the chemicals we use to fight the things that can harm us… are harming us.
Every year, billions of pounds of chemical cleaners, sanitizers and disinfectants are released into the environment. We flush them down drains that make their way into the ground and water supply. Inside our facilities, they are released as noxious fumes into the air we breathe and they linger as residues on surfaces we touch. How much longer are we going to allow this to keep going?
Antimicrobial resistance threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-increasing range of infections caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi. It is an increasingly serious threat to global public health that requires action across all government sectors and society. Antimicrobial resistance is present in all parts of the world. New resistance mechanisms emerge and spread globally.
Hospital acquired infections are the result of a patient getting infected by a germ -while being in the hospital. Most cases happen by surgical procedures and lack of sanitary processes in the most basic of tasks. HAIs are 45 billion dollar a year problem.
School Systems, Healthcare facilities, Commercial Cruises and Airlines, Food production and handling, as well as many other environments are exposed to these risks.
Forget harsh, toxic chemicals. Our process only requires salt, water and electricity to produce two products –a chlorine-based antimicrobial agent and an excellent degreasing cleaner.
Our technology produces an effective variable PPM hypochlorous acid solution that is created through an electrolytic process called Electro-Chemical Activation (ECA). It occurs by temporarily modifying the properties of water, by passing weak salt brine through an electrolytic cell and temporarily changing the properties of the salt water into a powerful oxidizing agent exhibiting highly effective antimicrobial properties.
Catholyte or sodium hydroxide, is an aqueous solution that is the natural byproduct of the electrolysis process, and is used to reduce microbe contamination and soil loads that can harbor germs on hard surfaces.
Catholyte is also a very effective degreaser and is a great option to safely clean floors without hazardous fumes, thus improving indoor air quality.
BioPlax is a biodegradable and bio-accessible plastic material. Unlike other biodegradable plastics, BioPlax becomes bio-accessible and is completely returned back to the environment in the form of the original natural raw materials that were used to make the product, resulting in no residual or unintended impact on the environment. BioPlax can be manufactured into innumerable products and engineered to biodegrade based on time and temperature specifications, from as little as a few minutes to as long as a year.
Our plastic clearly has significant benefit relative to other plastics, which can take many years to biodegrade (and never bio-access) and are the major source of pollution in landfills. BioPlax can be used to manufacture existing plastic or foam products, with little or no change required to the production equipment. Sample applications include:
