April 2020 Propeller
PA3 INVITES YOU TO “SECOND TUESDAYS”
A PRINCETON PROPELLER EVENT
NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS
Please Join Us for Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres
Wherever You Are
Speaker: Andrew Voros, CEO, PrevenTive Conservation, LLC
Topic: Photocatalysis & Pandemics: Bringing to Light a New Approach
Photocatalytic oxidation is a light-driven process that dismantles organic molecules on treated surfaces. These include human respiratory hazards caused by combustion and those of biologic origin. While standard treatments of chlorine, peroxides and ammonia kill coronavirus on surfaces, the disinfection lasts only until the next person contaminates it. The CDC has recently determined that an optimized oxidizing agent effective on MRSA and other iatrogenic diseases is also effective on COVID-19. Andrew will discuss these technologies, the science behind them, and the stabilized chlorine dioxide application that his company is making commercially available in the next 30–90 days.
In keeping with pandemic-generated distancing protocols, PA3 and Quadrangle Club are pleased to bring you our first “online Propeller.” So, fasten your intellectual seat belts, pour a libation and toast to loved ones & learning --- even in the midst of perplexity.
This video will be posted online as soon as available. To ensure that you receive notice of that posting, please register here. For information about Propellers generally, please visit propellers.princetonaaa.org.
