November 13, 2007 — /PRNewswire/ — MOORESVILLE, NC — Anpath Group, Inc. reported today that its wholly owned subsidiary, EnviroSystems, Inc. (ESI) announced the selection of its disinfectant EnviroTru(TM) for use by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro).
EnviroTru(TM) is a multi-purpose disinfectant and deodorizing cleaner effective against numerous organisms and also meets EPA requirements for Toxicity Category IV (no harmful dermal, ocular, inhalation, or ingestion effects). ESI reported that Metro recently placed an initial order for more than 600 gallons of the disinfectant.
“It is especially gratifying for our product/technology to be chosen by the transit system serving our nation’s capitol,” states ESI president and CEO J. Lloyd Breedlove. He continues, “EnviroTru(TM) is ideally suited for use in a transit system environment. As a result of its biocidal efficacy combined with its favorable materials compatibility and environmental profile EnviroTru(TM) is a natural choice for heavy traffic areas.”
Metro is the tri-jurisdictional government agency authorized by Congress to operate the transit service in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, including the Metrorail and Metrobus; totaling more than 11,000 rail cars, buses, and special means transport vehicles. Metro is also part of the public-private partnership that operates the DC Circulator bus system. Polly Hanson, assistant general manager of Safety, Security and Emergency Management with Metro, states, “We are pleased to have identified and selected a product with the characteristics of EnviroTru(TM). It is important that we make every effort to protect our customers and employees against the spread of infectious diseases without exposing them to harmful chemicals, while also taking into account our equipment and the environment in general.”
ESI states that in addition to daily application of EnviroTru(TM) on high hand contact areas such as door handles, hand rails, fare card machine buttons, etc., in the event of a pandemic flu or other infectious disease outbreak Metro is prepared to use EnviroTru(TM) with the Foster-Miller, Inc. Electrostatic Charged Aerosol Decontamination System (ECADS) (www.fostermiller.com/ecadsproduct.htm) to spray rail cars, buses, and other vehicles daily. ESI worked with Foster-Miller, Inc. to validate the use of its disinfectant with ECADS.
According to Foster-Miller, Inc. representative, Rick Lusignea, “Metro purchased 17 high efficiency air assisted ECADS sprayers from Foster-Miller to dispense EnviroTru(TM).” Lusignea explains, “The ECAD decontamination and remediation system disperses fine electrically charged droplets of decontaminant into the air. Because of the static charge imparted to aerosol particles, ECADS provides a much higher amount of disinfectant on surfaces than conventional air assisted spray systems, approximately 60 percent of the total disinfectant dispensed on the surface for the ECADS sprayer, versus less than 15 percent for conventional sprayers. We think the combination of our ECADS devices and the ESI disinfectant formulation is an extremely strong weapon against disease for Metro.”
