Boeing [NYSE: BA] entered into a patent and technology license with Missouri-based Far UV Technologies to manufacture a far ultraviolet (222nm) wand designed to sanitize airplane flight decks and interiors. Boeing designed and developed the technology as part of the company’s Confident Travel Initiative (CTI) to support customers and enhance the safety and well-being of passengers and crew members during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We have the ability to continuously disinfect while the bus is going down the road. That’s very different from the sprays and everything else, just because you have to wait until people get off so you can respray versus this light has the ability to continuously disinfect as the bus traveling down the road,” Barons Vice President Patrick Goebel said.

Far UV Technologies was awarded a Direct to Phase II SBIR project to install and demonstrate “Krypton Disinfection Lighting” in US Air Force facilities and in aircraft applications. Far UV Technologies is providing air and surface disinfection technology to better protect the Air Force and the rest of the defense community from COVID and other biological threats.

Thank you so much for your patience as we ramp up our efforts to bring our Krypton™ Disinfection Lighting to the market as soon as we can.  Over the past few weeks, there has been overwhelming interest and demand for our product. To help streamline communication and enhance the customer experience, we just completed an overhaul of our website.

“This single disinfection solution could become as important and ubiquitous to the control of microorganisms we cannot see as conventional lighting is to the benefit of everything else we can.”

Far UV Technologies has been awarded an SBIR contract titled “Innovative Disinfection Method to Prevent Food-borne Illness in Spaceflight”.
