UV-C was discovered in 1847 and was first implemented in 1903 for water purification
Increasingly, we spend more time indoors, for example at work, in airplanes, schools, and shopping malls. The air we breathe in these environments is anything but clean. In fact, it’s often re-circulated along with all the bacteria, viruses, pollen, smoke, and toxic gases that are trapped along with it. UV-C can be the solution to properly purifying our air and indoor areas.
• It is a well-known, well-studied, fully documented and proven technology that is already used by a variety of industries
• Integrating direct UV-C is not difficult to do, but it must be done safely
• Ultraviolet radiation is one of the most common environmental control measures that can be used to deactivate infectious microorganisms
• The Boston University has validated the effectiveness of UV-C lights (Signify/Philips) as a preventive measure for companies and institutions as they seek ways to provide virus-free environments
