G6 Materials (formerly Graphene 3D Lab) has provided an update from its R&D department regarding the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and its effects on the economic landscape, and G6 management is reportedly optimizing the business model to accommodate the new reality. As part of this, G6 has developed a graphene-based air purification tech that could help fight the virus.
The CEO of the Company, Daniel Stolyarov, explains, “There is an imminent demand for solutions that allow for the removal of viruses from the air and surfaces increasing the safety of the immediate environment. The Company has prioritized work in this sector and plans to address these market needs immediately.”
The Company’s Research & Development Department has developed a solution for air purification products that are designed to mitigate the threat of virus infection in confined spaces such as offices and industrial warehouses. The Company has found a unique method to incorporate graphene in the air filtration systems making them more efficient in killing germs. The Company is currently conducting internal testing, and will subsequently apply for appropriate accreditations.
The applications of this solution are numerous. Such systems can be included in existing HVAC systems or included in the design of new ones. They can be combined with conventional filtration methods as well as UV irradiation. Any large scale structures, including office buildings and factories, could all be the benefactor of this system.
Stolyarov continues, “Economies all around the world are experiencing unprecedented disruption due to the COVID-19 situation, leaving a long-lasting impact. We hope that the quarantine measures prove effective in stemming the spread of the virus, but quarantines cannot last forever. When people return to work they will demand that their work environment is safe. We provide a solution to this problem”.
The Company will continue testing of the prototypes and is actively looking for an industrial partner to rapidly expand the manufacturing capability and bring these highly demanded products to market.
