 Lumin-Air Introduces Ultraviolet Solution to Combat COVID-19

 

Lumin-Air, a provider of germicidal solutions and ultraviolet air filtration, recently unveiled its latest product designed to address the safe transport of students to and from school during COVID-19

  
    From School Bus Fleet:

Lumin-Air, a provider of germicidal solutions and ultraviolet air filtration, recently unveiled its latest product designed to address the safe transport of students to and from school during COVID-19.

Using ultraviolet germicidal irridation (UVGI) technology, Lumin-19 is an airstream disinfection solution designed to retrofit any sized school bus and most transit buses, according to a news release from the company. Pathogens in the air, including the Coronavirus, are inactivated as they pass through a high dose of ultraviolet light that continuously cleans the air inside the bus, according to Lumin-Air.

"School buses are incredibly dense spaces, which increases the likelihood for transmission of airborne pathogens," said Andrew Desmarais, co-owner of Lumin-Air. "The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that students are 70 times more likely to arrive safely at school if they do so on a school bus instead of by car. The challenge is how to transport them by bus while reducing the probability for the spread of disease."
