UVD Robots joins Ecolab as the growth in demand for solutions using UV-C light is projected to reach $18.94 billion by 2030, witnessing an annual growth rate of 59.7% from 2021 to 2030.
Autonomous UV-C disinfection robots have emerged as a supplement to standard cleaning and disinfection practices to address heightened hygiene requirements. The UVD Robot is a mobile, fully autonomous robot that uses UV-C light to increase the level of disinfection.
Ecolab has expanded its global portfolio - now including UVD Robots
As a global leader in disinfection solutions and services, Ecolab is driven to help improve disinfection standards through a programmatic approach to ensure facility hygiene. Ecolab has expanded its global portfolio to include UVD Robots, in its offerings for its customers.
Per Juul Nielsen, CEO at UVD Robots, sees the new collaboration with Ecolab as a tremendous validation of the efficiency of UVD Robots’ autonomous solution. “We are thrilled that this collaboration is now expanded to benefit facilities on a wider global scale,” he says, adding that, as an example, UVD Robots’ state-of-the-art germicidal UV-C disinfection technology can disinfect large areas in about eight to fifteen minutes.
Disinfecting with UV-C lights is not a new concept. However, existing solutions including UV ceiling lights and air purifiers may not reach shadowed or remote areas as well as the mobile platform offered by UVD Robots. Claus Risager, Chairman of the Board of UVD Robots and CSO at Blue Ocean Robotics, says that Ecolab further cements its industry lead by integrating the fully autonomous UVD Robots in the cleaning process for all its customers.
“The UVD Robot solves the challenges of repositioning and minimizes shadowing which has previously hindered the comprehensive application of UV-C, while providing 24/7 access to real-time compliance and efficacy reports of the disinfection procedures,” Risager says, adding that the UVD Robots are one-of-a-kind and truly unique UV-C disinfection robots when it comes to safety, ease-of-use workflow integration, autonomy features as well the intelligence of the system, enabling operators to fully control the quality and performance of the disinfection process.
The autonomous nature of the robots also reduces process time, freeing up personnel from physically having to move the system around, turning it on and off in between new positions compared to stationary technologies. In addition, the robot’s constant movements reduce the possibility of UV-C overdose which can lead to material degradation such as yellowing and cracking on equipment which also poses an additional infection risk.
