Bioagra disinfects the air non-stop

Bioagra, as part of maximizing the protection of the crew against the pandemic, implemented non-stop air disinfection in rooms where employees are. The devices used by the company safely purify the air from pathogens using UV-C radiation. They operate in many places: in the chemical and grain laboratory, in rooms where logistics and warehouse workers work, in the plant control room and in offices. 
 
For air disinfection at the “Goświnowice” Ethanol Production Plant, the company uses devices that purify the air on carbon filters with silver ions and disinfect with UV-C radiation with a wavelength of 254 nanometers (the most effective in the fight against various pathogens).
).– Destroying the sources of infection in the air is another important method used in the fight against the coronavirus – in addition to surface disinfection, social distancing and face masks – says Mirosław Obarski of Bioagra SA. – We decided to increase the safety and psychological comfort of the crew systematically. We disinfect the air in all places where employees are constantly present and where they need to contact people from outside the company, e.g. in the logistics team – he added.

Bioagra decided to increase worker protection and non-stop air disinfection, when the US government agency CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the equivalent of the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate) took into account the risk of transmission of coronavirus by air. This applies to microscopic virus-containing particles that are emitted while talking or just breathing.

Particles of this type can stay in the air for up to 12 hours, which is long after the infected person has left the room. They can travel far from the source of the emission, so the risk of infection gradually spreads over an increasing area, until it covers the entire room. For this reason, constant cleaning of indoor air plays a significant role in maximizing safety during a pandemic.

Bioagra used Sterylis devices certified by the National Institute of Public Health of the National Institute of Hygiene and laboratory measured safety in the field of UV-C. The devices have also undergone tests at the Collegium Medicum of the Jagiellonian University and are used, inter alia, in in private and public hospitals, health clinics and doctor’s offices, as well as in many retail outlets throughout the country.
