August 14, 2007 — GLEN MILLS, PA — Global Ecotek, LLC has announced the development of a state-of-the-art infection control technology. “This [technology] may be as significant an advance in infection control as the development of antibiotics. CIMR(TM) Infection and Mold Control Technology makes new infection control strategies possible, cost-effective, and efficient
for government, businesses, medical facilities, educational institutions, mass transportation, and the hospitality industry,” says James D. Lee, PE, CBRN consultant for multiple Fortune 500 companies and a former U.S. Army Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Defense Officer. “It’s also ozone-free and safe to use in occupied areas.
“Imagine government agencies and businesses that can safeguard their employees and the public against Pandemic Flu,” says Lee, “or medical institutions where antibiotic-resistant bacteria are only a minor threat. Imagine schools where students are much better protected against airborne and surface-contaminating illnesses, or airliner cabins and other mass transportation where the air and surfaces are safer from infectious disease. Not to mention cruise lines, restaurants, and resorts that are resistant to norovirus outbreaks. CIMR(TM) Infection Control Technology has the potential to change many, many things for the better.”
So far the hydrogen peroxide gas technology used in CIMR(TM) systems has demonstrated the ability to safely disinfect each virus, bacteria, mold, and fungus against which it has been applied. Also, independent studies conducted by Kansas State University, the University of Cincinnati, and Sandia Labs have proven hydrogen peroxide gas technology to be effective against the H5N8 virus, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Streptococcus, E. Coli, Listeria, Candida, Pseudomonas, Bacillus subtillus, and Stachybotrus Chartarum (black mold). University tests have shown that hydrogen peroxide gas technology can disinfect at least 96.4 percent and as much as 99.99 percent of surface-contaminating viruses and bacteria within the first 24 hours after installation.
Further, Dr. Marsden of Kansas State University had this to say based on his research: “After the first 24 hrs exposure, any new microbe reduction is virtually instantaneous.” Complete university test results are available and can be viewed at www.globalecotek.com.
“We’ve used the technology at many sites damaged by Hurricane Rita to remove extensive black mold contamination,” says Alton Holt, president of Global Ecotek. “It’s amazing to watch the technology turn a quarter-inch deep colony of black mold into powder, or to see it kill mold inside insulation.”
Lee also believes that CIMR(TM) Infection Control Technology has applications in biodefense, stating, “If this technology had been in place against anthrax in 2001, it could have made a big difference in reducing the number of people infected and in getting the contaminated facilities back up and running in a far shorter time at a fraction of the cost.”
CIMR(TM) Infection Control Technology is effective against microbes both in the air and on surfaces. It works by creating 0.02 parts per million (ppm) of hydrogen peroxide gas from the oxygen and humidity already in the air. The hydrogen peroxide gas is then supplied to the protected area where it diffuses everywhere air goes, disinfecting microbes in places that other technologies can’t even reach. The hydrogen peroxide molecules have both localized positive and negative charges; they are literally drawn to viruses and bacteria by electro-static attraction. Microbes don’t have much of a chance against CIMR(TM) systems.
The hydrogen peroxide gas is odorless and safe to use in occupied areas. According to OSHA, 1 part per million of hydrogen peroxide gas is safe throughout the workday. Ozone-free CIMR(TM) Infection Control Technology only uses one fiftieth of that amount. It has also shown that it can reduce ozone concentrations in incoming air. Hydrogen peroxide gas reacts with ozone to produce oxygen and water vapor.
Since most people have used hydrogen peroxide at one time or another to disinfect a cut or scrape, they should feel comfortable knowing that they can be protected by minute amounts of hydrogen peroxide gas in the air — just one hydrogen peroxide molecule for every ten million oxygen molecules.
CIMR(TM) units install in a matter of minutes. The first thing a duct-mounted unit does is sanitize the air ducts, which are often the source of disease and allergies in a facility because they are contaminated with viruses, bacteria, mold, and other fungi. CIMR(TM) systems are also more economical than competing technologies. A duct-mounted unit designed to protect up to 40,000 cubic feet draws less than half an amp of electricity and requires maintenance only once every 33 months.
CIMR(TM) Infection Control Technology is also fully scalable. More than half a dozen different configurations are already in
production, from systems compact enough to protect a small room, or install in a self-contained heating and cooling unit, to those designed to protect up to 80,000 cubic feet.
Global Ecotek, LLC; Global Purifications, LLC; and Hi-Tech Air and Water Systems, have formed a strategic alliance to bring CIMR(TM) Infection Control Technology to the marketplace in partnership with J.D. Lee & Associates, Inc, a service-disabled veteran owned company.
