Active sanitization with Photocatalytic Oxidation


PCO™ (Photocatalytic Oxidation) technology, better known as Photocatalytic Oxidation, was developed and used in the aerospace sector for the sanitization of environments intended for exploration, for which one of the main prerogatives is the quality and wholesomeness of the air.

PCO™ technology imitates and reproduces what occurs in nature through photocatalysis, a process which, thanks to the combined action of the sun's UV rays, the humidity present in the air and some noble metals present in nature, generates hydroxyl radicals and hydrogen peroxide molecules capable of destroying most pollutants and toxic substances.

The photochemical reaction that is generated thanks to PCO™ therefore makes it possible to destroy polluting substances, in particular bacteria, viruses and moulds, with an active natural principle.

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), more commonly known as hydrogen peroxide, generated by the photocatalytic reaction in minimal quantities - not exceeding 0.02 PPM - has a very high efficacy in destroying the microbial load, both in the air and on surfaces.
