Partnering with the University of Aberdeen and Rothamsted Research for releasing natural insect repellents that protect against the Scottish biting midge, Atrium Innovation's new electrostatic spray technology is set to revolutionise how people protect buildings from unwanted particles, insects, germs and bacteria.
Oxford, UK (PRWEB) October 3, 2008 -- Atrium Innovation Ltd has developed a new spray technology that uses no propellants or heat. The technology is so flexible the liquid dispensed can be almost anything. From spraying a natural insect repellent that helps protect a room from mosquitoes and midges to a safe sanitiser that could kill bacteria in the air. The technology has been commercialised in the form of an air purifier called Cleanaer™ and is endorsed by Allergy UK for helping to remove house dust mite and cat allergen from the air. Test show that once removed, particles are suppressed, preventing them from re-circulating.
Atrium formed a partnership with the University of Aberdeen and Rothamsted Research, who, having discovered why midges bite some people and not others, developed a more effective midge repellent naturally produced by humans. When looking for an efficient spray technology to release the repellent into the air, Prof. Jenny Mordue (Aberdeen) and Dr James Logan (Rothamsted), chose Atrium Innovation's technology.
Prof. Mordue said "We use Atrium's innovative technology as it was the only spray technology that could successfully release our natural active ingredients in a controlled and consistent manner to treat and protect a space. The technology is unique in the way that it doesn't need propellants or heat to disperse liquid and this was critical in our choice of teaming up with Atrium for these trials."
The development as a premium spray technology started 7 years ago in a shed in Oxford. The first commercial product "Sol
