MACOMA FN Nano Air Disinfection/Purification pro-longs the life of flowers, fruit, vegetables, and allows plants to thrive!
Ethylene, is often referred to as the ‘death’ or ‘ripening hormone’ and plays a regulatory role in many processes of plant growth, development and eventually death. Fruits, vegetables and flowers contain receptors which serve as bonding sites to absorb free atmospheric ethylene molecules.
Some of the effects of ethylene on flowers include: Bud and leaf abscission ( falling off)
- Leaf yellowing, transparency
- Loss of deep color
- Flower or petal drop
- Irregular bud opening
- Premature death
The CDC estimates 48 million people get sick from foodborne diseases each year.
The CDC states that the spread of germs from the hands of food workers to food is an important cause of foodborne illness outbreaks in restaurants. It accounts for 89% of outbreaks in which food was contaminated by food workers.
Research has indicated that photocatalytic coatings are useful at disinfection of surfaces, air and water. Photoactivated titanium dioxide has been shown capable of killing a wide range of bacteria, algae, protozoa, and mammalian viruses. The killing mechanism involves degradation of the cell wall and cytoplasmic membrane due to the production of reactive oxygen species such as hydroxyl radicals and hydrogen peroxide. This initially leads to leakage of cellular contents then cell lysis and may be followed by complete mineralisation of the organism. The bottom line is that most deadly pathogens die from the photocatalytic coatings applications making it a great line of defense in restaurants, cafeterias, and other food preparation areas.
According to the CDC, the top 5 germs that cause illnesses from food eaten in the United States are Norovirus, Salmonella, Clostridium perfringens, Campylobacter, Staphylococcus aureus.
The EPA also notes that indoor air quality problems can be prevented and resolved through simple, inexpensive measures and the cost and effort needed to prevent most air quality problems is significantly less than the cost and effort required to resolve problems after they develop.
