There are several reasons that you may choose to invest in a Biozone Air and surface sterilisation unit not least to combat spread of infection in your washroom. The Biozone sterilisation units have been shown to destroy viruses including Coronavirus family of viruses (as yet not tested specifically on the strain COVID19), flu, E.coli, Salmonella and Streptococcus within a defined area. This is particular useful in washrooms or other transient areas. The AirCare system improves hygiene both in the air and on surfaces, works 24 hours a day and uses sterilising techniques to clean the environment. AirCare solution can destroy the Human Flu virus, H5N1, and Coronavirus in 0.44 seconds (5.7 Log Reduction – Source: CNRS France). (See the Scientific Report in the downloads section). The systems are designed to work in conjunction with general good hygiene practices for optimum results and to act as an ongoing preventative measure.
Guide to which unit is required
- AC10 - up to 3 odour sources
- AC20 - up to 6 odour sources
- AC30 - up to 8 odour sources
What is an odour source? A Urinal / WC / etc for example 1 x AC30 unit is sufficient for up to 8 sources - e.g. 8 WCs or 4 Urinals + 4 WCs
Where to place:
- Near the odour source(s)
- Near the incoming flow of air to the specified area (usually a door or air inlet)
- Away from the extraction fan/open window
Create a fresher environment
Unpleasant odours are caused by bacteria, yeast and moulds. The Biozone sterilisation unit will ensure that the causes of odours are broken down, leaving a fresh environment. This is particularly important in rooms with poor air circulation and damp conditions like washrooms where bacteria, yeast and moulds are more likely to breed. Again please check the size of area before deciding on the unit type and quantity you require.
24-hour Chemical free protection
You can’t continuously scrub surfaces and clean rooms so the Biozone sterilisation unit provides additional continuous 24-hour, chemical free protection to compliment your cleaning regime. This creates a consistently safer and cleaner environment. It also eliminates the amount of harmful chemicals and sprays needing to be used that can have negative impacts on humans, particular those with allergies or asthma. It also helps to cleanse hard to reach nooks and crannies which might be missed or inaccessible during regular cleaning.
Air fresheners generally mask rather than eliminating the source of odours are constantly releasing irritating chemicals into the air. The biozone is creating a natural effect which leaves no harmful chemicals.
Other advantages are that less waste/emissions are created by the biozone sterilising unit when you consider the air freshener packaging, the transport, disposal and continuous cycle of production created by consumable products as opposed to the low electrical input required for the Biozone units to work.
BioZone Scientific has certified the BioZone AC with SGS, a world leading certification institute. SGS has granted GS, SGS FI certifications for the BioZone AC product. This certification demonstrates that the BioZone AC meets the requirements for harmonized EN and IEC standards.
The Biozone unit produces a combination of Ultraviolet light, ozone and photoplasm. Each of these states of matter and reactions can be found in nature and act as powerful and effective disinfectants which destroy viruses, odours, bacteria, mildew, mould and even break down unwanted compounds and chemicals. The Biozone carefully controls the output and the positioning of the unit to ensure that the application is safe in an enclosed human environment. Many competing devices produce just ozone or just UV-C but it is the combined effect that makes Biozone so effective and a globally recognised solution.

A Guide to Ultraviolet Light
Ultraviolet light (UV) has been used safely for over a hundred years to disinfect drinking water, medical instruments and sterilize air and surfaces.
Departments like the US EPA, US FDA, US Government, and ASHRAE all approve UV technologies for a series of disinfection and sanitation purposes.
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) technologies have developed significantly in recent the years. BioZone’s unique, patented high-output UV technology requires low energy consumption and maximises the lifespan of the UV lamps.
UV light penetrates the cell walls of microorganisms and break down the DNA, making it impossible for them to reproduce.
Plasma is the fourth state of matter, energised to a state beyond solid, liquid, or gas. Photoplasma can be found naturally and is often referred to as the Earth’s “detergent”, due to its ability to break down many harmful pollutants. BioZone’s patented technologies are acknowledged as some of the most efficient and cost-effective methods for producing photoplasma.
Ozone is a powerful oxidant found naturally in the environment. It is occurs when there is a reaction between oxygen and UV light. The effect is proven to destroy germs, bacteria, viruses, odors, and micro-contaminants. Ozone also breaks down unwanted organic compounds including harsh chemicals.
Ozone can break down urea, which is the main cause of smells in washrooms. This reaction has many medical, social and industrial applications.
Ozone can be a harmful irritant in high concentrations. BioZone’s patented processes and methodologies produce a controlled ozone output well within the EU standard limits.
Photo Catalytic Oxidation, or PCO, is an advanced oxidation process that combines the power of deep UV light and a highly reactive metallic catalyst to accelerate photoreactions. In the PCO process, the UV light’s energy reacts with the catalyst to create an energy gap that is used to generate free radicals, including hydroxyl radicals.
The radical species are highly reactive with organic compounds, and quickly and efficiently oxidize odors, bacteria, viruses, and harmful or unwanted chemicals.
