Next generation decontamination: fast, effective, cheap and non-toxic

Project description

Bio-decontamination to prevent spread of infections in hospitals

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control estimates that 3.8 million people acquire a healthcare-associated infection each year in acute care hospitals in EU countries. Bio-decontamination is the best solution to prevent spreading of deadly bacteria or virus, eliminating 99.999 % of microorganisms. However, bio-decontamination is not widely adopted. The EU-funded DELOX project has developed an innovative decontamination agent based on a solid formulation – dryVHP – which releases hydrogen peroxide vapour at low temperatures (60° C). This property reduces power consumption, equipment cost and enables a more compact and robust device. The DELOX equipment is unique in the market as an affordable, compact and highly efficient solution.
