EPA approves registered salt for use in De Nora ClorTec SD on-site generator to produce hard surface disinfectant

Allows companies to generate disinfectant where and when they need it.

De Nora has announced the launch of the ClorTec SD disinfectant generator. When used as directed, the ClorTec SD generator produces a ready-to-use (RTU) chlorine-disinfectant that kills 99.9% of germs, the company claimed. The RTU solution is generated on-site in quantities adequate to address the challenge of continuously cleaning surfaces in hospitals, senior care facilities, offices, factories, schools and many other critical locations.

Dr Mirka Wilderer, CEO of De Nora Water Technologies, explained: “Recent events have made people more keenly aware of the benefit of sanitising and disinfecting their workspaces and common areas in addition to traditional locations such as in healthcare. This has also created a demand for more cost-effective cleaning and environmentally sustainable solutions.”

ClorTec SD systems producing on-site RTU solution utilise three consumables – water, salt and power – to produce disinfectant using an electrolytic cell equipped with De Nora DSA electrodes. Hospitals, senior care facilities, janitorial cleaning companies, schools and other US located businesses can meet their surface disinfection needs by making their own disinfectant where they need it, when they need it, using readily available ingredients.

“More than 500 million people are already using water treated by De Nora technology. Our CLorTec systems have been providing reliable disinfection for water and wastewater treatment for more than 20 years,” Dr Wilderer continued. “Today, the EPA approval allows us to utilise the approved De Nora salt in innovative new ways and applications. As a partner of choice, De Nora is committed to the safety, health and success of our customers and communities.”
