A Moscow company developed smart air disinfectants that can be controlled by a smartphone. They were developed by one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of energy-efficient lighting solutions in Russia and other CIS countries. The innovative equipment has no domestic counterparts. Now the new product is getting approbation and certification. Mass production of the devices will be launched in January 2022.

A bactericidal disinfectant is a device for cleaning the air from viruses, microbes and allergens. It can be used in apartments, houses or offices, but it is primarily intended for healthcare institutions. It is effective in fighting airborne infections.

“With the onset of the pandemic, the demand for the latest medical products and equipment has grown dramatically. Moscow developers are making every effort to contribute to countering the spread of coronavirus infection. New bactericidal devices developed in Moscow can be used in the red zones of hospitals, as well as in shopping and entertainment centres, offices, schools, kindergartens, theaters, museums, and public transport. The bactericidal devices help minimize the risk of people contracting viral diseases in public places,” Alexander Prokhorov, head of the Moscow department of investment and industrial policy, said.

The equipment has powerful ultraviolet lamps (15 – 60 watts) providing nearly complete purification of air from harmful microorganisms. Such open-type bactericidal devices should not be used with people, animals and plants around. There should be no one in the space to be cleaned. Therefore, the Moscow enterprise introduced a convenient feature into the device: remote control via mobile app. To operate it, the user opens the application on smartphone and makes a couple of clicks: selects a mode and sets the exact time period of the procedure (five, 10 or 15 minutes). By the way, it is not necessary to be close to the room where the device is located, because you can interact with the device at any distance; the main thing is that the equipment has access to the Internet.

The device operates in several modes with different performance and noise levels and is able to clean the air in rooms up to 150 square meters.

The device was demonstrated at the academic and research forum "Russian Health Week" held in Moscow from December 6 to 10.

Innovative solutions are regularly created in Moscow and they can be applied in a variety of areas: education, healthcare, information security, automotive and many others. Thus, a resident of the special economic zone Technopolis Moscow invented a new material for the rapid construction of reliable buildings in the harsh natural conditions of the Arctic. It is named "flexible sandwich". These panels consist of two awning layers with insulation between them. The main differences from other sandwich panels are their large size and tight and waterproof PVC material. One panel can cover an area of up to 200 sq. meters. The Moscow development is used in the Arctic for the construction of training centre building, warehouse and storage facility.

In addition, a Moscow manufacturer created an automated radiation control system for icebreakers. It allows both to monitor the radiation background onboard the ship and determine the cleanliness of skin and overalls, as well as carry out individual radiation exposure monitoring of personnel. This system is named "Phoenix".
