News Highlights: Open world Technology Group is set to revolutionize air quality and airport cleaning processes – The Moodie Davitt Report
UK / INTERNATIONAL. The open world Technology Group (TOWTG) has expressed its intention to target the global airport market with a complete sanitizing solution – known as Velvet2030 – developed in response to the coronavirus pandemic and to keep viruses, bacteria and odors at bay.
Its creators believe it can play a critical role in restoring confidence that airport premises are safe for staff and passengers, accelerating the return to normalcy.
Velvet2030 was developed after extensive research and input from environmental experts from the Energy Safety Research Institute at Swansea University in Wales and the University of Arizona in the USA. Elements of the system are currently being tested at London Heathrow Airport.
With the COVID-19 vaccination program well underway in the UK and other countries around the world, TOWTG – part of SIA Holdings – said companies now need to build trust and plan for workers’ return to their workplace and for when consumers start traveling in large numbers again.
In addition to airports, TOWTG has targeted its solution – with the very latest nanotechnology – in areas with high traffic, including hospitals, train stations, catering establishments, offices, schools and universities, to ensure that these environments are permanently clean and healthy.
TOWTG cites research showing poor indoor air quality to be the fourth largest health risk in the UK and a report by DEFRA shows that this has affected the economy at an estimated £ 2.7 billion (US $ 3.69). billion) per year, due to lower productivity. In addition, in 2020 the CBI reported that “dirty air” illness in buildings costs British workers £ 990 million (US $ 1.35 billion) annually in lost wages.
Successful indoor environment management has a direct impact on health, safety, productivity and comfort and is critical to the well-being of both customers and staff, according to TOWTG.
The nanotechnology application used by Velvet2030 uses an invisible coating on treated surfaces. The photocatalytic surface creates powerful oxidants from oxygen and moisture that neutralize viruses; eat air pollution; inhibits algae, fungi and bacteria; prevents biofilms from gluing inorganic dirt to surfaces; and allows water to drain, making treated surfaces self-cleaning.
This process also includes a ‘visual conformance technology’ which makes it easy to spot areas that have been treated effectively and those that have not. One application of this process has a life cycle of 12 months, the makers claim.
Once treated, Velvet2030 technology monitors pollution and cleanliness using cloud-based monitors in a building, continuously assessing the location and air quality within the building. Via a tailor-made online dashboard, stakeholders are warned if there are adverse changes in the interior air quality (IAQ). The cleaning regime has been verified to the best global standards, TOWTG said.
TOWTG Co-Founder Saad Audeh said, “We are in a decade where greater focus on cleanliness is essential. It is paramount that companies future-proof their environment to make them as clean, safe and healthy as possible to maximize trust in employees and customers and encourage their return to normalcy. “
Co-founder Mike Reeves added, “This eco-technology also provides a substantial return on investment through increased customer confidence and satisfaction. The great thing about this system is that it allows stakeholders to immediately quantify any risk, by viewing live data at all times, monitoring how buildings are performing and how safe they are and, where necessary, taking the necessary measures to reduce the risk. improve air quality and reassure staff and customers. “
TOWTG is already partnering with companies such as Campbell Gray Hospitality, BAM Royal Group to support Heathrow Airport’s commitment to improve the air in relation to tunnels and structures, and Riverstone Living, a London senior home developer that emphasizes quality of life with using clean air technology.
