Solution for Control of Viral Load against COVID-19

            AmbiAir Cleaning Technology Pvt Ltd start-up, has developed innovative products, the most powerful Air Disinfector device for the improvement of indoor air quality. It works at molecular level to remove indoor air particulates and contaminants. It is also effective in reducing viral load of COVID-19 and thus controls the spread of virus.

These products are:
1. Bionic Air Ion Generator
2. Bionic Air Disinfector / Sterilizer
3. Bionic Air Disinfector with PCO Technology

         The world is experiencing challenges of pandemic situation caused by coronavirus. Vaccination, isolation/quarantine, bio-bubbles are the tools for prevention. Predicting inhibitor and target to the COVID-19 is an urgent need to protect human from the disease. In this scenario, lockdown is the only solution in India. Lockdown is resulting in economic, industrial, educational loss to the society and country as well.

         The awareness about clean and pure air and the related technology is in progress in USA, Singapore, Japan and China. In India, there is no any manufacturing company related to air purification products by using unipolar / Bipolar / Bipolar with PCO technology. The present Indian companies related to air purification are the distributors and providing sales and services of the products, which are manufactured and imported from in USA, Singapore, Japan and China etc.

           This start-up, has developed innovative technology related to Unipolar, Bipolar Ionization, named Bionic and Bipolar Ionization with PCO technology and planning to launch products in Indian market. The start-up look for Government aid for this venture.

The product, India’s first Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization System named as Bionic Air Ion Generator is developed in this start-up. It produces positive and negative air ions neutralizing harmful pathogens, pollutants and odors from air. The schematic representation of this concept is as fallow:

   Bionic Air Ion Generator is ready to use and by using it following products are designed, awaiting for Government support and funding to promote manufacturing, market launch. The plan is to install these products at various public places such as Homes, Offices, Clinics, Hospitals, Airports, Railways & Metros, Educational Institutions, Residential & commercial buildings and many other, to reduce viral load against COVID-19 and thereby control the spread of virus. Brief description of the working mechanism to control the spread of virus is as bellow:

Bionic Air Disinfector

            The major concerns of indoor air quality pertaining to COVID-19 are, how long the virus remains in the air and how far it can travel. The Coronavirus is known to spread via water droplets in the air, which are inhaled into the lungs. Recent research shows that aerosol transmission, or simple breathing, without the presence of water droplets can also cause exposure. Keeping a high level of indoor air quality significantly helps to reduce the spread of all airborne viruses.

            The Bipolar Ionization produces a large amount of positive and negatively charged ions that attach to and deactivate harmful substances like bacteria, mould, allergens and viruses.

              The ions produce a chemical reaction on the cell membrane surface that inactivates the virus. It can reduce up to 95% of microbes in few minutes. It is an Active Process that provides continuous disinfection. The ions also attach to expelled droplets and dust particles that can transport viruses, enlarging them (the process called agglomeration) fall to the floor and out of breathing area.

            Bi-polar ionization has already been proven as effective against various influenza strains as well as norovirus, SARs and other corona virus like H1N1. Bi-polar ionization is experiencing a surge in popularity as the coronavirus pandemic fans concerns about air quality in homes, offices and many more other public places.

Bionic Air Disinfector with PCO Technology

 

          Bipolar ionization paired with Photocatalytic oxidation is more effective in this regard. Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) uses Ultraviolet Radiation together with Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) coated filter, causes Hydroxyl radical which will combine with bacteria, viruses and germs in the air and will be destroyed in to carbon dioxide and water.

Here’s how the titanium dioxide catalyst in an air disinfector breaks apart molecules of air pollution:

  • When UV light shines on the titanium dioxide, electrons are released at its surface. It’s the electrons that do the useful air disinfection work.
  • The electrons interact with water molecules in the air, breaking them up into hydroxyl radicals, which are highly reactive, short-lived, uncharged forms of hydroxide ions.
  • These hydroxyl radicals are small and agile and gets pushed into the environment where they attack bigger organic pollutant molecules like fungi, mould, odour causing bacteria, viruses and various VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) including ethylene and formaldehyde, even the ones in hard to reach places, breaking apart their chemical bonds and turning them into harmless substances such as carbon dioxide and water.

It reduces up to 99% of surface micro-organisms and dramatically reduce airborne contaminants and allergens in the air.

UVC Germicidal Irradiation

 

UVC at 245nm wavelength inactivates microorganisms by damaging the structure of nucleic acids and proteins. This renders them inactive and unable to replicate further.

By using both Bipolar ionization and Photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) technology, it kills airborne viruses and reducing the risks of transmission of infectious aerosols.

          The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, recognizes UV light’s ability to destroy viruses. During the SARS outbreak of 2003, research found it was highly susceptible to UV treatments. Data used to analyze the effectiveness against COVID-19 shows a similar sensitivity, proving PCO is an effective indoor air quality treatment.

            These product can be used in enclosed facilities where people gather to work, play or relax. • Shopping malls • Offices • Hospitals and clinics • Airports • Childcare centres • Restaurants • Exhibition halls • All other Indoor facilities.
