B + N Referencia Zrt. Has developed a unique mobile UV sterilization device for the rapid disinfection of public transport vehicles, and the first 20-piece series of the equipment suitable for sterilization will be completed by the end of February, Világgazdaság wrote. With a mobile device, it will take a maximum of one minute to kill 99.9 percent of common pathogenic microorganisms.
The company started working on the development as early as 2019 with the aim of introducing faster disinfection solutions to protect passengers in addition to manual cleaning during vehicle cleaning. The device for UV disinfection of passenger vehicles is designed to be easily applied to trainsets or trams in the future and to be able to move between passenger seats by safely sterilizing the areas below the seats by extending the openable side wings.
