BRAINTREE, MASS.—A new electrostatic disinfection process is being used by the nation’s three largest airlines. The EvaClean Infection Prevention System developed by EarthSafe Chemical Alternatives includes: handheld and backpack Protexus Electrostatic Sprayers: PurTabs and PUR:ONE hospital-grade EPA registered disinfectant tablets effective against coronavirus yet safe for people and environment; best practices for cleaning protocols; training processes; and monitoring programs to achieve maximum safety and efficacy.
In February, Delta Air Lines began deploying a new electrostatic program from EarthSafe, a leading disinfection solutions company and developer of the EvaClean Infection Prevention System. Shortly thereafter, United and American airlines followed suit. Unbeknownst to the general public, EvaClean has been widely adopted by major airports in addition to airlines, including Hollywood Burbank, T.F. Green in Rhode Island, and Las Vegas McCarran TSA, as well as mass transportation systems, such as San Francisco’s Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), Martz Trailways, and many others.

Who is EarthSafe and What is EvaClean?
Though seemingly under the radar, EarthSafe is well known across multiple industry sectors as a premier provider of infection prevention solutions for protecting public health, and EvaClean has earned a reputation as the gold standard in electrostatic disinfection. They were among the first to leverage electrostatic technologies with a line of Protexus sprayers, which create positively charged droplets to magnetically wrap around all surfaces. Airplanes, buses, trains and other forms of public transit can be thoroughly disinfected in a matter of minutes.
The chemistry in EvaClean’s PurTabs and PUR:ONE disinfectants is another unique component of the system. In addition to a top-level 2c kill claim against emerging pathogens, they are on the American Chemistry Council’s list of COVID-19 Fighting Products, as well as on the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) List-N of antimicrobial products approved for use against novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19. Yet, EvaClean’s disinfectants are safe for passengers and crew.
Lead by an accomplished management team, EarthSafe spent years designing best practices for cleaning protocols, training processes, and monitoring programs around its sophisticated ecosystem of equipment and chemistries to achieve maximum safety and efficacy.
Systemized disinfection is the key to keeping coronavirus at bay and building world class disinfection systems is EarthSafe’s area of expertise. Their team is 100 percent dedicated to infection prevention and to helping win the battle against COVID-19.
