Cedrión, a business supported by the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), has actually created a disinfection system that might reduce the effects of COVID-19 in simply over 10 minutes. The system utilizes climatic plasma to sanitize areas and surface areas and reduces the effects of nearly all air-borne germs and infections.
The disinfection system is comparable in size to a home computer and can be positioned in any area, such as a space or cars and truck, to sanitize surface areas in the space utilizing cold climatic plasma. “We’re developing systems based on our patented cold atmospheric plasma generating technology. Broadly speaking, we subject the surrounding air to a very strong electrical field, pulling electrons from the neutral particles in the air and forming ions. This system can generate up to 70 different types, from ultraviolet rays to peroxides, ozone, or nitrogen oxides. The synergies between these allow bacteria and viruses to be neutralized,” notes Enrique Medina, CEO and co-founder of Cedrión.
Based on this innovation, Cedrión can be utilized in 2 methods: it can be utilized to clean up the air and surface areas. The very first is a quiet system that decontaminates spaces that have individuals inside, it recirculates the air and reduces the effects of germs and infections. The 2nd usage cleans up any surface area in the space when it is empty. To do this, the system launches ions which, as soon as sanitized, are reconnected in neutral particles.
The screening of this disinfection system will start in November at the Spanish National Centre for Biotechnology (CNB-CSIC, in its Spanish acronym), checking the neutralization of the pressures of Coronavirus that impact people, consisting of SARS-COV-2. The start-up, which was housed in the UC3M – ESA BIC Madrid Region node up until 2019, prepares to have actually the system evaluated and accredited by the end of this year so that it can be set up in health centers, schools, and workplaces, to name a few areas.
“We have tested the system using different types of bacteria, being able to neutralize 99.99% in less than a minute. We’ve also started testing strains of the Coronavirus that do not affect humans, and have had some very promising results,” Medina concludes.
