Development of applications of the NanoCleanSQ surface coating in the fight against COVID-19

Envision SQ Inc. (EnvisionSQ), in a joint effort with the University of Guelph, is currently working on applications of their NanoCleanSQ disinfectant-sanitizer to help slow down the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the virus that causes COVID-19). NanoCleanSQ is a clear coating material and acts as a photocatalytic disinfectant that can be easily applied to virtually any hard surface to help prevent spread of viruses.

Greenhouse gas and volatile organic compound reduction using the SmogStop® coating

Sound barriers can be seen beside highways across Ontario and are designed to protect residents from the noise produced by traffic. However, these barriers do little in the way of protecting residents from the pollution produced by nearby vehicles. This project will help determine the ability of the SmogStop® barrier to reduce the level of exposure to GHGs and VOCs for those living close the major urban roadways. The partner organization is an R&D firm that would greatly benefit from the access to equipment and HQP that they would gain from a partnership with the University of Guelph.

SmogStop Barrier Testing

Sound barriers can be seen beside highways across Ontario and are designed to protect residents from the noise produced by traffic. However, these barriers do little in the way of protecting residents from the pollution produced by nearby vehicles. This project combines a novel sound barrier design with a new pollution control technology that will help reduce the level of traffic related pollutants that those living near major roadways will be exposed to.
