The Jerusalem Post — The test results for Tadiran’s innovative air-purification technology, Air Care O2, have proven that it is extremely effective in reducing the concentration of the coronavirus in air by up to 99.99%, in a small enclosed space.

“I have devoted more than 20 years to environmental microbiology, and I was more than happy to act as a consultant in the trials examining the effectiveness of the new Israeli development for purifying air from microorganisms, which improves the air quality in closed spaces,” said Prof. Ariel Kushmaro, head of the Environmental Biotechnology Laboratory at BGU.

 

Within 30 minutes of operating the device, an 87.9% level of reduction in the concentration of the virus in the air was recorded. After 60 minutes, the level of reduction reached 99.8%, and after 90 minutes, it reached a level of 99.99%, it said.

Tadiran believes the test results are indicative of the Air Care O2 technology’s ability to be the most effective means of maintaining air quality and reducing the amount of bacteria and viruses, including the coronavirus, in closed spaces.
