Another new application for our citric acid!
We are constantly receiving information about new applications for our citric acid. One of the most recent developments has to do with the Covid pandemic and disinfection. At the end of last year we came into contact with the Belgian-Luxembourg company Molecular Plasma Group. They produce machines to apply a thin layer to face masks or other products and are aware of the disinfecting effect of citric acid. By incorporating a thin layer of citric acid into the filter layer of the face masks, these could eliminate up to 99.9% of the virus particles.
We supplied the company with high quality citric acid and our experts collaborate with the company about our product know-how and its optimization for the required use.
In the meantime, 150 million mouth masks have already been produced with our citric acid and the first article about this was published in "De Tijd" on February 16: https://www.tijd.be/dossiers/coronavirus/belgen-wapenen-maskers-met-desinfecterend-laagje/10284692.html
