Moscow-based developer launches innovative disinfectant

2 Jul '20
VDK, a Moscow-headquartered developer, launches production of a new disinfectant of its own design. At the moment, the company is filing patents for the technology for the production and formulation of the disinfectant, said the head of the Department of Investment and Industrial Policy of Moscow, Alexander Prokhorov.
“During the epidemic, one of the priorities for the city was the need for surface disinfection on an industrial scale. Today, only Moscow needs hundreds of tons of concentrated reagent per week, and the country as a whole - several thousand tons. VDK’s development is environmentally friendly and 2.5 times more efficient than chlorine-based counterparts. Now the manufacturer draws up the relevant patents for it. The company plans to release 200 tons of disinfectant per week, ”the department head emphasized.
The new disinfectant is designed to treat various surfaces - roads, linear objects, urban areas, for water disinfection and air - against viruses and microorganisms, but is not intended for use as an individual skin antiseptic.
“The innovative disinfecting mechanism in the new product is provided by oxygen atoms in chlorine dioxide. VDK specialists sought to develop a formulation based on the use of widely available chemical components mass-produced in Russia. As a result, the enterprise’s technology allows maintaining a very high volume of output of a marketable product and is not exposed to the risks of depletion of the required basic raw materials, ”said Gennady Degtev, Director General of the Technopolis Moscow SEZ.
It can be delivered to consumers as ready-made disinfectant, as well as automated full-cycle plants, if it is necessary to expand the production of disinfectant in place. The production line is assembled in the form of a containerized modular installation and can be commissioned at the site with minimal training, said Sergey Shagalov, Development Director of VDK.
