To cater to the rising fears of coronavirus infection in closed spaces, air conditioning and commercial refrigeration major Blue Star has launched new products and services with virus deactivation technology (VDT).
The company said that VDT has the capability to deactivate viruses, including coronavirus, with up to 99.9 percent efficacy when air passes through these systems.
Blue Star joins a slew of other companies like Sharp and Orient Electric launching anti-viral technology and allied devices to help combat COVID-19.
Electronics goods maker Sharp Corporation has developed a device equipped with plasmacluster technology that it claims, in a research test, has the ability to reduce the infectious titre of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) by more than 90 percent.
In fact, even consumer goods companies have launched products like anti-viral plywood (CenturyPly), anti-viral fabric (Siyarams) to laundry sanitiser (Dettol).
