CASPR Partners with Staten Island Ferry to Ensure Safety of Passengers and Staff

CASPR Group is excited to announce that we have partnered with Staten Island Ferry in New York City, the 2nd largest ferry system in the U.S., with service dating back to 1817. CASPR’s continuous disinfection technology is now helping to protect passengers, staff, and visitors from a wide-variety of viruses, bacteria, and mold, including SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Staten Island Ferry provides 22 million people a year with ferry service between Staten Island and Whitehall Street in lower Manhattan and is the only non-vehicular mode of transportation between Staten Island and Manhattan. Under the arrangement, CASPR’s award-winning technology is operating in all vessels, administrative offices, break rooms, and maintenance shops.

“CASPR Group is obviously honored to be working with Staten Island Ferry, an iconic New York institution. Not only will passengers and staff have greater peace of mind knowing our technology is up and running all the time, but this partnership also represents a key milestone in our war against the pandemic. Transportation providers are on the front lines. So, if we can help reduce the spread there, we can better protect Americans, and all people, from contracting this deadly disease,” said Todd Wiggs, Senior Vice President, Sales and Business Development for CASPR Group.

New Study Confirms CASPR Group’s Air & Surface Disinfection Technology Kills 99.99 Percent of SARS-CoV-2 Virus Within 24 Hours

University of Wisconsin Study Shows Reduction Begins Immediately

DALLAS – Jan. 5, 2021 – CASPR Group today announced that its CASPR 1000 In-Duct disinfection technology kills 98 percent of SARS-CoV-2 viruses on surfaces within six hours and 99.99 percent within 24 hours, according to a recent study conducted by the University of
Wisconsin-Madison.

Unlike disinfection processes that use an episodic ultraviolet (UV) light or harmful chemicals, CASPR’s technology uses a proprietary Natural Catalytic Converter (NCC) process to naturally extract oxygen and moisture from ambient air and then produce and continuously deliver trace levels of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to disinfect indoor spaces. The result is an automated and continuous reduction of air and surface viruses and bacteria in a way that is safe for use in spaces occupied with people and pets, and with no need to modify existing custodial processes.

“Our natural disinfection technology is designed to reduce the microburden levels in any given space, while that space can still be used safely at its intended operating capacity with human occupancy,” said Dr. Christophe Suchy, President and Chief Technical Officer of CASPR Group. “We’re excited that the University of Wisconsin study objectively shows that our technology can efficiently and effectively neutralize the virus that causes COVID-19.”

The CASPR 1000 is part of the CASPR Pro product line of HVAC in-duct solutions. Available in a variety of sizes, based on a target area’s square footage, all CASPR Pro line products offer the same output of hydrogen peroxide and can be expected to perform at the same optimal levels as outlined in the study. CASPR’s Medik and Compact solutions offer an even stronger output which reduces harmful pathogens quicker, and are ideal for high-traffic spaces or environments where higher amounts of contagions may exist. Like all CASPR products, the healthcare-grade technologies are safe for people, pets and plants.

CASPR’s technology is based on the Photocatalytic oxidation process released by NASA in 1967 and improved by Dr. Suchy for the healthcare industry. He was awarded the Innovation of Excellence from NASA in 2019 for his improvements on the technology, which is in use today in CASPR’s products.
