Covid-19 – Stand-alone production system of disinfectant using only water and salt for sanitary or domestic uses

Country of Origin: France
Reference Number: TOFR20200604001
Publication Date: 23 June 2020

Summary

A French company has developed a stand-alone production system of disinfectant using only salt and water. It can be used, even in harsh environment, sanitary and domestic purposes. It needs low maintenance and can produce up to 32 litres/day.
It produces a universal disinfectant, reliable, affordable and sustainable. Commercial agreements with technical assistance with SMEs specialised in cleaning, supplying communities & public entities, distributors of medical devices equipment.

Description

Sodium hypochlorite is universally recognised as a disinfectant and antiseptic agent with a wide range of easy to use application. Coronaviruses can be efficiently inactivated by surface disinfection procedures with sodium hypochlorite (from 0.1%) within a minute,  which is particularly relevant in the actual Covid-19 pandemic.

A French SME has developed an easy-to-use system, able to produce up to 32 litres/day of sodium hypochlorite solution, using only salt and water (4 productions of 8 litres when connected to the grid, or 1 production of 8 litres when solar powered).
The concentration of sodium hypochlorite can be adjusted depending of its use:
- Disinfectant: 2 g/l is recommended for main domestic and sanitary uses. This chlorine solution can be assimilated with bleach
- Antiseptic: 5 g/l is recommended for main medical uses. This chlorine solution can be assimilated to Dakin solution.

Initially, the system has been designed for developing countries, thus being suitable for harsh environments, affordable and using only readily available elements (salt and water). A control screen provides all the production information with a user-friendly interface.
It can operate with either conventional power supply (220 V) or solar energy.
In the current period of health crisis, it can benefit hospitals, retirement homes, but also city halls, schools, sport centres… and all infrastructures and facilities open to public and/or subject to high hygiene standards.

The goal is to provide health workers, practitioners, military, police, teachers, office staff, veterinaries…with a universal disinfectant, available on-site, reliable, affordable and sustainable.
The user produces its own disinfectant on-site. The system can be set up everywhere with any quality of salt and water used, due to the possible calibration to adapt the system to the local installation and operational constraints. It respects all industrial parameters to produce sodium hypochlorite at 0.5%. These innovations guarantee the quality of the disinfectant.

The French company is looking for commercial agreements with technical assistance with the following partners:
-Small companies specialised in industrial cleaning, in supplying communities and public entities, in supplying services to industrial kitchens, food industries, hotels, restaurants…
- Distributors of medical devices and equipment

The French SME will assist the partners with a technical and commercial support and training (Visio-training).
