Technology to promote OS+H

Amid this COVID-19 pandemic and with the gradual opening of workplaces in our region, workers may again be at risk of exposure to the virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Given the latest situation that workers are starting to return to their workplace, employers and employees must all take responsibility in taking steps to create a safe and healthy workplace to protect all stakeholders!

Higher frequencies in cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces, hard-to-reach areas, and areas with high human traffic areas are already becoming a new norm to help reduce the chances of
COVID-19 transmissions in workplaces. As such, the Phytogreen Phyto PA-T247 Plus+ solution is formulated from our very own biotech R&D facility in Singapore to fulfill this purpose in helping companies adopt enhanced cleaning and sanitation procedures in creating a safer and cleaner workplace for the employees.

New Techniques to the OS+H Industry

There are two components to disinfecting any surface effectively: an effective disinfectant solution and the method of application.

The Phytogreen Phyto PA-T247 Plus+ solution is purposefully formulated from not one, but two ingredients with active microbial properties. Many known and effective plant extracts are used for
cleaning purposes; several plants have also been extensively studied for their antibacterial activities against different pathogenic microbial species. As such, one part of the Phytogreen Phyto PA-T247 Plus+ contains plant extracts with natural antimicrobial properties. When combined with a second ingredient in the form of alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride, the combined dual 2-in-1 antimicrobial properties are effective in disinfecting surfaces.

Coronaviruses on surfaces are among the easiest to kill with the appropriate disinfectant product. Viruses can be separated into classes based on structure, for example in the simplest form;
enveloped (e.g. COVID-19) and non-enveloped virus. Years of research and testing show that enveloped viruses are usually easier to kill using disinfectants than non-enveloped viruses. Of course, there are exceptions to this generalization.

During an outbreak of a new virus-like COVID-19, no products exist in the market that can make claims to kill the virus. This is due to the simple fact that the virus was not available to test, and it can take more than a year to get a viral claim approved by a regulatory agency. For this reason, the Phytogreen Phyto PA-T247 Plus+ underwent extensive tests, one of which involves testing with the non-enveloped Coliphage virus strain as an indicator strain to test the disinfectant efficacy of the solution.

The traditional surface cleaning approach involves washing of a surface and followed by a vigorous wipe-down process with a cloth or sorbent pad. 5 years ago, we, at Ecoappls International,
developed an application technique to rid indoor premises from nuisance odors with EA-Series LUEFTER (TM pending) portable surface coater, to pressurized-charged and finely spray our cleaning
solutions on walls and fixtures in hotel rooms and shopping galleries. Through a natural bio-degradation process, odor-causing organic compounds can be reduced by our solutions to much simpler and odorless forms.

We now have a global reach to six international clienteles using this cleaning technique and our solutions in creating a signature experience in this hospitality and service sector. In early March, we redesigned the application method with the newly formulated Phytogreen Phyto PA-T247 Plus+ disinfection solution to be deployed in workplaces.

Since the launch of the Phytogreen Phyto PA-T247 Plus+ solution and our recommended application technique with the EA-Series LUEFTER in early May 2020, several local workers dormitories, major
global hotel chains, offices, F&B and educational sectors have already started implementing our products to safeguard the occupational safety and health for their workforces. Our select list of notable clientele includes the worker dormitories of Poh Wah Group, Neuhaus Engineering, hotels and apartments under the Sands Hotel Group (MBS), Marriot International, Japanese School
Singapore, and several local offices.
