CSIR Technology of Electrostatic Disinfection transferred for Commercialization
The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research – Central Scientific Instrument Organization (CSIR-CSIO) has developed a technology for sanitization and effective disinfection. The CSIR-CSIO has transferred the technology to a Nagpur based company Rite Water Solutions Private Limited.
The Disinfectant technology has been found to be highly effective and efficient to stop the spread of any pathogen. The machine has been developed based on the electrostatic principle.
About the machine
The machine produces fine and uniform droplets of disinfectants that kills micro organisms including virus. The main advantage of the machine is that it uses minimum limited disinfectant as compared to other conventional and manual methods.
How is the device different?
The device sprays charges droplets of disinfectants. As the droplets are charged, they can cover obscured surfaces as well. This improves the efficiency and efficacy of the device to reach hidden areas. The hidden areas always have greater possibility of viruses.
Swasth Bharat Abhiyan
The technology of electrostatic sprayer contributes to healthy life style and health care of the masses. It is directly linked to Swasth Bharat Abhiyan. The Swasth Bharat Abhiyan is implemented by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. The yatra under the scheme was led by FSSAI.
The Swasth Bharat Yatra was launched in 2018 on the World Food Day (October 16). The volunteers rallied and cycled to spread awareness about healthy diet.
