ELECLEAN, is exploring the market for non-alcoholic disinfectant technology
Taiwan, through the technology innovation company ELECLEAN, is exploring the market for non-alcoholic disinfectant technology to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Indonesia.
“This technology is expected to be a solution for Indonesia considering that this country is one of the top 10 countries in Asia with the highest cases of corona virus transmission,” said ELECLEAN Founder and CEO, Dr. Chieng Hung Chen in an official statement in Jakarta, Monday.
Dr Chieng admitted that his party had succeeded in developing a series of water-based, innovative and high-tech portable sterilization devices in the world and recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO).
He explained that this technology can process water to produce pure disinfectant, without alcohol content. Disinfectant can be produced in as little as 15 minutes. And of course, these disinfectant products are free from alcohol and chemicals that can damage the skin.
“So only enough water, electricity and our equipment, then safe disinfectants will be produced,” he said.
To be able to produce this disinfectant, said Dr. Chieng, this tool uses nano-catalysis electrochemical technology which can convert water into ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) which effectively destroys viruses and bacteria by the oxidation method.
Does not contain alcohol
Because it does not contain alcohol, he said, it is very suitable for Indonesia with a majority Muslim population.
In addition, Indonesia’s geography as an archipelago will make it difficult for residents to buy disinfectants. “This device can be a new solution for producing disinfectants on demand anytime and anywhere,” he said.
He added that currently his party has collaborated with local partners to penetrate the market in Indonesia. The company projects sales in Indonesia to exceed 350 thousand US dollars in the first year of operation.
Taiwan is one of the countries that has been very successful in overcoming the COVID-19 pandemic that has spread rapidly since the beginning of this year. Currently, the number of deaths in Taiwan due to the COVID-19 virus has only reached one digit.
In fact, at the end of October 2020, the Taiwan Center for Disease Control said the country had recorded 200 days without any COVID-19 cases, amid the outbreak of the corona virus in a number of countries.
