Germi R75 is designed to treat airborne contamination.

French firm to display UV technology at WFES

ABU DHABI, December 24, 2014

French company UVGermi will display its range of ultraviolet reactors for treating water, air and surfaces at the upcoming World Future Energy Summit (WFES) and the International Water Summit (IWS) in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

UVGermi will be showcasing in particular one of its flagship products: the Germi R75 air purifier, designed to treat airborne contamination and chemical contamination of the air. It acts on contaminants such as VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), odours, viruses, bacteria and moulds.

The purifier uses a combination of photocatalysis and UV sterilisation. The ambient air is drawn through a fine filter that traps the volatile particles. It then passes through a fibre coated with a photocatalytic substrate made from titanium oxide, a statement said.

Under the effect of the germicidal lamp the titanium oxide releases free radicals (OH), which are diffused in the area to be treated. These free radicals enable the immediate decomposition of the organic (VOCs) and micro-organic (bacteria, viruses, moulds) compounds by transforming them into basic molecules such as water and carbon dioxide. The action of the free radicals continues in the ambient air.

WFES and IWS take place in Abu Dhabi from January 19 to 22, 2015. – TradeArabia News Service
