"GreenTech Environmental has always believed nature has so much to teach us about air purification,"
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (PRWEB) November 20, 2020
GreenTech Environmental, a national leader in air and surface purification technologies, has released the latest round of laboratory testing results for its proprietary ARC® technology.
By replicating nature’s purification process, the test results confirm ARC HVAC technology actively reduces risk of exposure to air and surface bacteria. By implementing safe and effective ARC HVAC technologies, commercial and municipal operations can provide an additional layer of protection for students, customers, and employees - increasing productivity and preventing unwanted disease spread.
First developed by NASA to maintain a clean spacecraft environment, ARC technology combines UV light powered catalytic reactions and charged ions to neutralize contaminants on surfaces and in the air. ARC technology is considered an “active” technology because the air itself becomes a continual cleaning process without filtration.
Lab results showed GreenTech Environmental’s ARC HVAC technology reduced a highly infectious, hard-to-treat, strain of staph bacteria, methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), by 99% in a controlled environment. This penicillin resistant strain of MRSA is also resistant to drying and survives on surfaces and fabrics for extended periods of time, making this bacterium particularly difficult to kill.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) says athletes, day care and school students, military personnel, inpatients and surgical patients are particularly at risk for MRSA as it can be spread through both infected personal items and direct contact.
“GreenTech Environmental has always believed nature has so much to teach us about air purification,” said Allen Johnston, GreenTech Environmental CEO.
“ARC technology, because it is based on natural reactive processes, actively sanitizes the air and surfaces, making it particularly beneficial in commercial environments to protect the health and safety of students, customers, and employees,” he continued.
According to the CDC, while MRSA most commonly causes skin infections, “in some cases, it causes pneumonia and other infections.” MRSA can also become severe and cause sepsis.
GreenTech Environmental reminds everyone to follow all CDC recommendations for MRSA including handwashing, covering of wounds and avoidance of sharing personal items such as towels and razors.
