  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressures at ordinary, room-temperature conditions. Their high vapor pressure results from a low boiling point which causes large numbers of molecules to evaporate or sublimate from the liquid or solid form of the compound and enter the surrounding air. Health effects include eye, nose, and throat irritation, headaches, loss of coordination, nausea; damage to liver, kidney, and central nervous system. Some organics are suspected or known to cause cancer in humans. Key signs or symptoms associated with exposure to VOCs include conjunctive irritation, nose and throat discomfort, headache, allergic skin reaction, dyspnea, declines in serum cholinesterase levels, nausea, emesis, epistaxis, fatigue and dizziness.
  • Absenteeism & sickness at work

    1. 1. Absenteeism & Sickness at Work A HIDDEN THREAT To Global Businesses & Workplaces
    2. 2. Absenteeism whether due to sickness, cost of disability or workmen compensation, costs U.S. businesses more than USD 576 billion a year. Indoor Air has been identified poor in 30% of new and remodeled buildings. Office Environment are 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outside.
    3. 3. Productivity decreases. Health care cost increases. Insurance premium increases. Business affected. . WORK STOPS.
    4. 4. IT’S ALL IN THE AIR If you knew what we know about indoor air, you’d stop breathing completely
    5. 5. The Facts The U.S Environmental Protection Agency stated that poor indoor air is one of the top five environmental risks to public health. Indoor air pollution is a silent threat. You are more likely to get sick from pollution in your home and office than from pollution in the air outside. On average, we actually spend 90% of our time indoors All the cleaning and scrubbing only work on surface, not the air. Air need to be sterilized and disinfected.
    6. 6. BIRD FLU H1N1 H5N1 MERS H7N9 INFLUENZA TB HARMFUL PATHOGENS Human Activity Coughing Sneezing Breathing Talking/Singing Vomiting Diarrhea # viruses 3,000+ 3,000+ 200+ 1,000+ 1,000+ 20,000+ Large/ Small Droplets 1 – 5 feet 8 – 15 feet 1 – 3 feet 1 – 3 feet varies 5+ feet *As a Result of Toilet Water Aerosolization, air contamination in toilets to be effectively sterilized & contained.
    7. 7. Airborne transmission depends on people to launch many viruses into the AIR A μm is a micron or 1/1,000,000 of a meter. The smallest particle you can see is 30μm.
    8. 8. Potential Sources of Poor Indoor AIR Quality Human occupants themselves: • exhaled carbon dioxide gas • sneezing & coughing causing bacteria, virus and particulate matters to be airborne • cross-contamination coming from other poorly ventilated zones. • Combustion gases (such as from smoking)
    9. 9. Potential Sources of Poor Indoor AIR Quality • Inappropriate materials (wall painting, finishing, furniture, fixtures, photocopy machines) or building materials with technical defects (formaldehyde) • Work performed within (such as cleaning of carpet, chemical odourizer / disinfectant) • Excessive or improper use of normal products (pesticides, disinfectants, products used for cleaning and polishing) • Storing of inappropriate substances & materials (cleaning chemicals, solvents, etc)
    10. 10. Potential Sources of Poor Indoor AIR Quality • Mold, fungi or mildew growth on wall due to excessive moisture • Clogged or unsanitary air-conditioner ducting due to contaminants build-ups • Blockage of air-conditioner diffusers and ventilation system - due to renovations, bad interior design, bad temp distribution, furniture arrangement, etc. Air cond. diffuser and ventilation blockage
    11. 11. Examples of Health effects due to poor Indoor AIR • Sick building syndrome (SBS)Recurring illness amongst people in the building without any trace of source that can be identified. • Building related illnesses (BRI)Legionnaire’s Disease, bacteria contaminating cooling towers. • Exposure to Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) and chemicals – formaldehyde, paint, carbon monoxide, etc. • Airborne Diseases – Superbug, MRSA, H1N1, H9N7, MERS.
    12. 12. NANO TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS TO STERILISE INDOOR AIR Safe AIR - Save COST Our health and wellness is our main priority, we deserve the best indoor air using non-evasive and innovative Nano technology solutions

    16. 16. How it helps • Disease Protection Protection from any airborne microorganisms by destroying the microorganism’s DNA • Clean air-conditioning system Breaks airborne particles and destroys all contaminants, keeping the ducting clean • Cost saving Eliminates mold formations in vents that partially restricts air flow. • Eliminate odours Gets rid of moldy smell from the air after killing the germs and bacteria.
    17. 17. How it works ALL IMPURITIES KILLED Germs Bacteria All germs, bacteria and mold that are floating and breeding in your air conditioner has to pass through UVC Light before it is released. Mold Clean and sterilized air is released into the premises
