As part of the EIT’s Crisis Response Initiative, this activity directly contributes to the European Union’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Several studies suggested that coronaviruses can survive on material surfaces such as metals, glass and plastic. This project will develop plasma-assisted sanitation systems for packaging materials, equipment and tools used in the processing and handling food products. In the first stage, PASS will identify and assess the specific plasma parameters able to induce the inactivation of Covid-19. This input will be used to realise a pre-industrial prototype, which eventually will be commercialised.
