Madrid: Large-scale disinfection
“A large-scale disinfection is being carried out to eliminate the coronavirus in Madrid. It is not an easy task when it is carried out in museums that house extremely valuable works of art (Royal Academy of History, Madrid, Spain)”.
Sherco Group (20/04/2020)
“Counterfog® technology, endorsed by an FP7 project funded by the European Commission, generates a spiral fog cone with submicrometric droplets -the size of viruses- capable of dragging, aggregating and decontaminating biological agents” .
Sherco Group (20/04/2020)
“This crisis has brought new challenges in decontamination and cleaning technologies. The classic solutions do not seem to be enough. That is why Sherco Group have chosen this European technology that has been shown to be the most effective in massive decontamination of biological agents such as viruses, bacteria, and spores”.
