MOORESVILLE, N.C., Oct. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Anpath Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ANPG), reported today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, EnviroSystems, Inc. (ESI) announced that the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) has purchased additional supplies of its EnviroTru(R) Disinfectant & Cleaner Deodorizer and a stock of ESS high efficiency electrostatic mobile spraying units.
The Company stated that Metro plans to intensify its "Cleaning for Health" initiative utilizing EnviroTru(R) in combination with the ESS electrostatically charged decontamination system. According to ESI, the Metro program is a two-part program and includes a seasonal flu prevention program as well as safe guarding the health of customers through regular application of EnviroTru(R) to Metro offices, stations, rail cars, buses and other vehicles. EnviroTru(R) will be used on high hand contact areas within the system such as door handles, hand rails, fare card machines, and other surfaces customers contact when passing through the transit system. ESI had previously reported the selection of EnviroTru(R) Disinfectant by the Metro and the signing of a Prime Distributor Agreement with Electrostatic Spraying Systems, Inc.
EnviroTru(R) is a multi-purpose disinfectant, sanitizer and deodorizing cleaner, effective against numerous organisms, and also meets EPA requirements for Toxicity Category IV (minimal effects noted, no precautionary or first aid statements required; no harmful dermal, ocular, inhalation or ingestion effects). EnviroTru(R) does not require protective clothing, gloves or special ventilation and has passed the AMS 1452A, AMS 1453 and Boeing D6-7127 specifications for non-corrosion and materials compatibility. ESS electrostatic sprayers disperse fine electrically charged droplets and are capable of delivering 60% of the disinfectant on the surface versus less than 15% by traditional sprayers, and the disinfectant can be delivered in hard to reach areas not accessible by conventional means.
Chris Moore, Manager, Special Projects with Metro stated, "Our goal is to safe guard the health of our customers and fellow employees. We believe that the use of EnviroTru(R) in combination with the ESS sprayers will leverage our ability to use chemicals, products and services that are environmentally safe, healthy for all of our customers and economically efficient."
"We are pleased Metro has reconfirmed their earlier choice of EnviroTru(R) and has included it as an integral part of their 'Cleaning for Health' program," stated ESI President and CEO, J. Lloyd Breedlove. "EnviroTru(R) in combination with the ESS sprayers is ideally suited for use in heavy traffic areas within the transit system environment. We think Metro is the model for cleaning and infection prevention for transit systems everywhere. Based on our experience with Metro we intend to expand our unique decontamination solution to other transit authorities worldwide," concluded Mr. Breedlove.
