Biome Nanomics is currently developing a UVC LED disinfection system for commercial, institutional, and industrial spaces for surfaces and water that promotes the UN SDG 3 (Good Health and Well Being) and 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation). Our patent-pending system is modular, adaptable, easy, fast and safe to use in a variety of environments, from public transportation, to schools, offices, and public buildings. The initial pilot testing is occurring in Toronto Canada and Geneva, Switzerland, and we want you to help build the next iteration of our technology for mass deployment, focusing on the power electronics and data communications.
