Honeywell set to launch “drop-in” coronavirus filter
USA: Honeywell is reported to be developing a coating for air filters that kills as much as 97% of the coronavirus.
Talking to Bloomberg, Honeywell CEO Darius Adamczyk revealed that the coating would allow for a “drop-in” alternative to current heating and air conditioning filters in schools and commercial buildings, avoiding costly upgrades for those systems to handle denser filtration.
The chemical coating would need US EPA approval and Honeywell is said to be enlisting the states of Texas and North Carolina as partners to help accelerate the process.
Honeywell says the coated filters could be ready by the end of September.
