Steril-Aire, Inc. has announced that the company is about to receive its 11th patent from the U.S. Patent Office, as well as an updated listing from Underwriters Laboratories Inc. The company's latest patent covers the application of UVC light to break down airborne volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and common organic odors. Using the patented methodology, Steril-Aire's germicidal UVC devices can reduce VOC and odor concentrations. As a result, the air in a mechanically ventilated space can smell cleaner because it is cleaner.
