Cl02 is a well-known sanitizer and disinfectant approved by FDA for many applications. ClO2 is recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) of the United Nations (UN) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). It is also a disinfectant listed on the Guideline for Laboratory Biosafety of the WHO.
ClO2 is used around the world to sanitize or disinfect water, for poultry and meat processing, for washing produce, and to sanitize surfaces and other breeding grounds for pathogens.
Influenza A and B and norovirus (Norwalk virus) are examples of enveloped viruses that are hard to kill. Cl02 is uniquely able to penetrate this protein envelope and disable these pathogens. Cl02 is also effective for penetrating the proteins surrounding certain pollens to render them harmless to those with allergies.
ClO2 IS EFFECTIVE
Traditional disinfectants have to get inside the pathogen to kill it and this takes time. Pathogens can build immunities. ClO2 attacks from the outside in and can kill in as little as 30-90 seconds.
