Since the beginning of the fight against Covid-19, there have been various positions on what the best disinfectant is. However, a company from Kula has now received confirmation that the disinfectants it produces are 100% efficient against coronavirus as well, RTS reports.
The biocide solution, diluted sodium hypochlorite, made at Sigma in Kula, has recently been officially certified by an accredited EU lab, proving that it destroys all viruses, including coronavirus.
– We wanted to apply that experience to the production of a disinfectant that would be meant for all citizens and all users. All the most important local institutions took part in the development, from the Faculty of Mathematics in Belgrade, the Faculty of Sciences in Novi Sad, the Faculty of Technology in Belgrade, the Batut laboratory, the City Public Health Institute, the Provincial Public Health Institute – says Aleksandar Kolic, the marketing manager of Sigma.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, close to a million and a half liters of the disinfectant has been produced and distributed to all crisis response teams, health and education institutions in the country.
– These products are not just proven to be efficient, they are also safe and simple to use and do not require prior dilution – emphasizes commercialist Tatjana Vulevic.
The solution that received the EU certificate is more highly concentrated and is meant for professional use. At the production facility, less concentrated disinfectants are produced as well and the testing procedures for certification are in the final stage, after which the production in larger quantities should begin.
