SCIENCE

THE SCIENCE OF PROTECTION
 

At the core of the BioWALL solution are patented DiKlor™ chlorine dioxide (ClO2) generation systems and methods, as well as patented treatment processes. ClO2 is a powerful water-soluble gas that destroys harmful and potentially deadly biological and chemical contaminants.

BioWALL’s comprehensive ClO2 technology solutions leverage decades of scientific research coupled with extensive application experience in the field. Continual focus on solving complex problems has led the BioWALL research team to important scientific and technical advancements and recognition as a preeminent microbial biocide technology by the scientific community.

BioWALL decontamination services utilize the only U.S. EPA-registration for a non-carcinogenic sterilant that provides broad-spectrum decontamination with the capability to address the toughest biological contaminants on porous and non-porous surfaces. In particular, DiKlor™ sterilant technology is noted for its ability to:

  • Rapidly treat large scale, highly-contaminated structures and bodies of water
  • Treat pathogens including bacteria and viruses without facilitating resistance
  • Degrade naturally without carcinogenic or toxic byproducts


WHY CHLORINE DIOXIDE?  

Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is a safe and effective broad-spectrum biocide employed across industries for decades. As a selective oxidant, ClO2 is a broad spectrum sterilant, highly effective in remediating a vast array of biological and chemical contaminants, purifying drinking water, destroying mold and mold spores, and sterilizing large spaces, including large scale barns, food processing plants, commercial kitchens, and livestock transportation. Its uses range from the treatment of water and wastewater to sterilization of laboratory and healthcare facilities to the remediation of acute viral or bacterial infection such as HPAI (highly pathogenic avian influenza), Anthrax and Ebola.

BioWALL’s powerful protection solutions are utilized by hundreds of municipal and industrial water treatment facilities across the U.S. for controlling bacteria and sulfur compounds.  

Applicable across a range of industries, BioWALL’s technology and experts deliver unique and effective solutions to complex problems involving severe biological building contamination, emergency response for biological and chemical incidents, agricultural disease and waste remediation, and deliverable ClO2 solutions for Legionella and waterborne pathogen control.  

Conventional biocides are regulated and prohibited for use in addressing contaminated drinking water supplies and aquifers because of their inherent toxicity. Only chlorine dioxide, ozone, ultraviolet light, chloramine and chlorine are allowed for use in the potable water supply. However, ClO2 has marked environmental and human health advantages over alternative methods of disinfection because it does not form dangerous, potentially carcinogenic brominated or chlorinated by-products during the disinfection process.

 
FIRST IN SAFETY & ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE
 

BioWALL’s technology and operational processes are designed to clean up contaminants efficiently while protecting your people, your assets, and the environment.

BioWALL and its affiliates have earned an exemplary safety record acress multiple industries for delivering non-carcinogenic treatments, providing extensive training and protection for its own and clients’ staff, and embedding a multitude of fail-safe mechanisms throughout its technology and processes. BioWALL’s systems are designed to operate in extreme weather conditions and wide-ranging environments, ensuring efficacy of treatment and safety for operators even under harsh conditions. The BioWALLSM technology solution is broadly utilized to treat municipal drinking water, municipal wastewater and direct food contact process water.

 
DIKLORTM OXIDANT TECHNOLOGY: A PROVEN “GREEN” TECHNOLOGY
 

BioWALL’s commitment to green technology has been a core value and driving force for our innovative technologies, services and chlorine dioxide applications.

Chlorine dioxide, generated by BioWALL in its purest form, leaves neither residual toxicity nor carcinogens. The health, safety and environmental performance level of the BioWALLTM treatment process is unparalleled; it is employed not only in physical structures but with food products, in municipal drinking water, municipal waste water and direct food contact process water.

BioWALL and its affiliates have not only mastered the use of chlorine dioxide gas as a microbial sterilant, but have also developed systems for large-scale onsite production of chlorine dioxide gas and protocols and procedures to ensure 100% remediation to ‘no-growth’ disinfection and safety. In every engagement, BioWALL’s highly-trained employees educate clients and service team members on best practices and protocols, emphasizing the health and safety of all project stakeholders and the community at large. BioWALL maintains a policy of safe storage, processing, transport and applications. Wherever possible, a zero waste policy is employed through a “recycle, reuse and leave no residual toxicity” process.

The BioWALL team’s interactions with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and multi-agency Technical Working Groups led to BioWALL’s unique adoption of clearance criteria and standards that surpass legal standards for sterilization. BioWALL succeeds in achieving no residual toxicity for buildings, contents and other treated media. Members of the BioWALL team are active participants on environmental clearance committees responsible for setting standards for the decontamination of structures. This empowers BioWALL to have a unique and formative voice in the question, “How Clean is Clean?”

The BioWALL team’s central role in advocating a “no growth standard” coupled with no residual toxicity, and successfully meeting those standards on every completed project, has carried over to a corporate culture that goes beyond environmentally friendly practices.

BioWALL utilizes closed loop systems, and treatment zones are typically held at a negative pressure, resulting in zero chlorine dioxide emissions to the outside environment. Via this closed system, BioWALL recycles its fluid loop, minimizes process water, and treats all process waste to industry standards, before discharging safely into the environment.
