Fresh Taste Produce Selects Applied UV Inc.’s Patented Photocatalytic Oxidation Technology for Its New State-Of-The Art Growing Facility
MOUNT VERNON, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Applied UV, Inc. (Nasdaq CM: AUVI) (“Applied UV” or the “Company”), a proven innovative UV technology solutions leader, has secured an order for more than $400,000 for its Airocide® by Sterilumen air purification systems from Fresh Taste Produce Ltd.
A critical technology to extending the life of perishable and agriculture products is the removal of ethylene. The Airocide air purifier uses AUVI’s patented Photocatalytic Oxidation technology to thoroughly destroy not only ethylene, but also viruses, bacteria, spores and fungi, as well as other carbon-based microbes. An FDA-listed Class II medical device, Airocide is safe and green. No emissions. No ozone. No chemicals.
“As food producers in the United States and around the world continue to face rising costs, they are looking to AUVI’s patented technology to extend the shelf life and prevent spoilage of food,” said Max Munn, CEO of Applied UV Inc. “We continue to see strong demand from the agricultural and food transportation sectors, as well as growers for our technology, and we anticipate both sectors to be drivers of our revenue growth in 2023.”
This order further validates our post-harvest strategy and builds upon on the successful and trusted relationship between Fresh Taste Produce and Sterilumen, a wholly owned subsidiary of Applied UV Inc.
“The Airocide technology is first and foremost a cost-savings vehicle for our company,” said Julian Sarraino, Chief Operating Officer at Fresh Taste Produce Ltd. “The Airocide purifier has substantially reduced produce spoilage. By reducing spoilage, we are able to maintain the quality of a significant amount of product that we bring to market and therefore, reduce production costs.”
NASA used Airocide’s technology to sanitize the International Space Station. Leading organizations in food processing, transportation and storage, wineries and the cannabis verticals throughout the world rely on Airocide indoor air purification technology.
