SAN JOSE – An antimicrobial textile treatment from Swiss hygiene company Livinguard has been approved by the United States’ Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The technology is positively charged on the molecular level and so, when in contact with the negatively charged virus, has been found to successfully destroy SARS-CoV-2 without the aid of silver.

“Unlocking the limitless possibilities of permanent hygiene and proactively improving the health and safety of the public is at the heart of Livinguard's mission,” said founder and CEO, Sanjeev Swamy. “We can now have self-disinfecting airplane seats, hospital and hotel linens, sports apparel, medical scrubs, footwear, uniforms and carpeting. Essentially, any business or organization that uses textiles can effectively utilise our self-disinfecting technology.”
