UV-C air disinfection system
UV-C air disinfection system was developed by the CSIR?S Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIO). This technology will be installed in the Parliament for minimising the air transmission of the novel coronavirus. It is deigned to be used in auditoriums, malls, educational institutions, AC buses and railways.
The technology can be fitted into all existing air-ducts. It uses UV-C light, which is said to deactivate coronavirus in aerosol particles. There are no specifications regarding the wavelength or duration of UV radiation. However, it was mentioned that the product could achieve 99 per disinfection. It should be noted that there is little scientific data on the required wavelength and duration necessary for inactivating SARS-CoV-2.
