A UK business partnership is bringing health technology to the hospitality industry to support businesses as the easing of lockdown restrictions begin.
Medklinn International, which already provides air and surface sterilisation solutions to Asia, North America and parts of Europe, is set to target the hospitality sector with its range of hygiene solutions after launching in the UK market.
It plans to offer hospitality operators an alternative method of sterilising air and surfaces in their premises and delivery vehicles without the use of chemicals.
The company, which already supplies products to a number of leading international hotel chains, cites studies from scientists at Japan’s Fujita Health University which show that low concentrations of ozone gas can be used to neutralise coronavirus particles without causing harm to humans.
According to the university research, low-level ozone gas in concentrations of 0.05 to 1.0 parts per million (ppm) could be key to neutralising the spread of coronavirus in settings where people are gathered.
Daniel Lu, chief technology and innovation officer of Medklinn International, said: “We are looking forward to bringing our health technology to the UK. The announcement from the team at Fujita Health University in Japan further demonstrates that ozone sterilisation technology is a viable alternative to the use of chemicals for disinfection.”
Steve Jones, brand manager Medklinn UK, added: “Our products are already used by some of the leading global brands in the hospitality industry, including Hyatt, Mandarin Oriental and Singapore’s Changi Airport. We believe that they will be particularly useful as we make steps towards easing restrictions and reopening the UK following the lockdowns over the past 12 months.”
Medklinn says its products are also proven to be effective in killing 99.9% of harmful microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria, mould and fungi by destroying their RNA and DNA structure.
Customers will be able to choose from a range of air and surface sterilisers depending on the size of their premises.
It will also offer ozone water systems for industrial kitchens and integrated sterilisation systems for food processing and F&B outlets.
