DINT - Disinfect, Ionise and Do Not Touch
The germicidal effect of ultraviolet light type C (light with a spectral wavelength between 100 and 280 nanometres) has been widely known for about 100 years. between 100 and 280 nanometres), has been widely known for about 100 years.
It has been commercially exploited since 1930, when the Westinghouse Electronics Corporation manufactured the first lamps for use in disinfection in California (USA). Corporation manufactured in California (USA) the first lamps to be used for disinfection in operating theatres and laboratories in hospitals. operating theatres and laboratories in hospitals.
However, many experts believe that the first large-scale ultraviolet disinfection equipment was used in Marseille (France) in 1910 in its water purification system.
Ultraviolet light is divided into three categories, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO):
Ultraviolet A light (UV-A):
This is the lowest energy form of UV, and accounts for approximately 95% of the UV light reaching the Earth from the Sun. of the ultraviolet light reaching the Earth from the Sun.
It can penetrate deep into the skin's layers of the skin, which makes it responsible for the initial tanning effect.
Ultraviolet B light (UV-B):
This type of higher energy ultraviolet light can penetrate the surface layers of the skin. of the skin.
It is responsible for delayed tanning, and is a major contributor to skin cancer and ageing. and ageing.
Most of the UVB that reaches us is absorbed by the Earth's ozone layer, so it only accounts for about 5% of the solar UVB that reaches us. Earth's ozone layer, so it only accounts for about 5% of the solar UVB reaching the planet. reaches the planet.
Ultraviolet Light C (UV-C):
The ultraviolet light category with the highest energy is also the most harmful.
Fortunately, it is completely absorbed by the ozone layer and the atmosphere. It can be produced
by modern devices that come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Some are similar in size to mobile phones, others are medium-sized and are used in hospitals to disinfect patients' rooms after discharge, and others can be as big as a car, as in the case of the and others can be as large as a car, as is the case for systems used to disinfect drinking water. systems used to disinfect drinking water.
Ultraviolet light, also known as UV light, is invisible to humans. Although it is adjacent to visible light in the electromagnetic spectrum, its wavelengths are too short for our eyes to register and detect. short for our eyes to register and detect.
UV rays are also high energy, so although we cannot see them, we certainly feel their effects. their effects. For example, the ultraviolet light generated by the sun is what generates a tan or a sunburn. burn.

Corona virus SARS-CoV-2
Cause of the disease Covid 19
SARS-CoV (severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus), occasionally called SARS-CoV-1 to distinguish it from SARS-CoV-2,3 is a corona virus species causing severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) that emerged in 2003 in Southeast Asian countries. It emerged in November 2002 in the Chinese province of Canton. From its emergence to August 2003, the virus had infected 8,422 people in some 30 countries and caused 916 deaths.
SARS-CoV-2 corona virus is a new type of corona virus that can affect people and was first detected in December 2019 in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. It mostly causes only mild respiratory symptoms in 80% of cases. The virus is known as Corona virus SARS-CoV-2 and the disease it causes is called COVID-19.
Current data indicate that the virus is mainly spread by respiratory droplets between people in close contact with each other. between people in close contact. These particles come in different sizes, from the largest, 'respiratory droplets', to the smallest, called sizes, from the largest, 'respiratory droplets', to the smallest, called 'aerosols'.
How can it be combated?
1. UV-C ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT
Recent studies carried out and published by various teaching and research institutions, such as the Institute of Mechanical Engineering at Tel Aviv University in Israel(1), the Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori di Milano in Italy(2) or the American Photobiology Committee in the USA(3) confirm the sterilising and disinfecting capacity of this type of light against bacteria (i.e. tuberculosis), fungi and viruses (including SARS-CoV-2 responsible for COVID 19). UV light used in medical disinfection devices has a particular wavelength of between 100 nm and 280 nm. wavelength of between 100 nm and 280 nm and is capable of inactivating viruses and bacteria in aerosol suspension exposed to it in less than 8 minutes.
How does ultraviolet light type C disinfect?
Light emitted by lamps or LEDs capable of generating light at this specific wavelength (254nm) can penetrate pathogen cells and damage DNA or RNA. wavelength (254nm) can penetrate the cells of pathogens and damage the DNA or RNA containing their genetic code. containing their genetic code. There is also evidence(5) that UV radiation can also damage amino acids and proteins that protect the SARS-CoV-2 virus or allow it to bind and infect a host cell. bind to and infect a host cell. The C-type ultraviolet photon of light as small as 254nm in size (one millionth of a millimetre) when striking any pathogen in suspension in the air or on the surface is capable of break down the RNA (ribonucleic acid) and DNA of these pathogens, deactivating them and rendering them completely harmless to humans. (It is also important to remember that ultraviolet C light beams should never be used to kill pathogens. C type ultraviolet light beams should never be applied directly to the skin or eyes).

2. TITANIUM DIOXIDE THIO2
In contact with the sun, photocatalysis takes place, H2O2 (oxygen peroxide - hydrogen peroxide), which is used, for example, in the varnishing of door knobs to disinfect them. for example, to disinfect doorknobs. In rainy areas it is used to give a protective coating to solar panels and to prevent mould. It is photocatalysis is produced by UVA light.
3. OZONE O3
O2 to O3 in nature with a big spark, e.g. a thunderstorm. a thunderstorm. It is a super disinfectant and oxidant. 10ppm/m3 will burn your lungs.
4. NEGATIVE IONS
In nature it is produced by the impact of H2O against stones, free electrons are released. It is not harmful. The negative ION sticks and becomes negatively charged, sticking to the walls sticks to the walls (not on wood).
The great defence of bars and restaurants is the FREE AIR, the WIND and the SUN.
In order to be able to open restaurants, it is necessary to build trust with people, however, to eat, however, you have to take off your mask.
How can contagion be prevented?
It is really a very weak enemy, very easy to disable. Nature gives us the solution. gives us the solution.
It prevents this contagion by deactivating the virus, breaking down its lipid coat, working at the molecular level. It generates a wave that dissolves the virus, eliminating its ability to its ability to infect and reproduce.
Disinfects through UVC technology. The air flow of the air-conditioning The air flow of the air conditioning unit acts as a transport and closed air renewal circuit. The same equipment can be used as a vehicle to apply a sustainable solution. See It is a solution that is working well all over the world: Israel, New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan and Taiwan.
