MODULO – Ecological disinfection device using diamond nanotechnology

Developed during the COVID-19 pandemic, the regenerative disinfection system Modulo replaces chemical disinfection with environmentally friendly application of carbon nanomaterials for hand sanitation and air disinfection. Module 1 provides sensor-controlled purification of air by photocatalysis, based on the oxidation of micropollutants. A ceramic foam component coated by TiO2/boron-doped diamond substrate allows airflow through pores powered by a fan and penetration of the UV light, degrading harmful substances in the air. Module 3 provides contactless dosing of water with disinfectant properties, through its closed-loop production using advanced oxidation processes and water electrolysis utilizing nano-crystalline boron-doped diamond electrodes.
