SOLUTIONS

PREPARE

Gain deep understanding of the likely (and potentially catastrophic) risks and threats your business faces, and develop a proactive strategy.


Prepare

Understanding risks is the first step to reducing them. bioWALL possesses the aptitude to help you understand your risks, establish sound protocols and design your facilities to prepare for threats. For over 20 years, the bioWALL team has effectively remediated biological and chemical contaminants spanning agriculture, food processing facilities, hospitals, offices, and military installations. In times of crisis, your staff needs to be ready to respond to ensure the safety of your organization. bioWALL is uniquely qualified to help you “secure the perimeter” and detect potential threats before they take hold. Training and security programs are a core competency of our solution, giving you the knowledge and confidence to stay ahead of threats.

PREVENT

Develop protocols to detect a broad array of potential threats, quickly contain situations, protect assets and minimize the effect and cost. 


Prevent

The best defense is often a good offense. Whether you need large scale, on-site preparedness stations or help nearby and on-call, the bioWALL team has earned a reputation for successfully facilitating project-specific applications. Each program is designed to provide the best treatment options specific to each operation and site.

RESPOND

Utilize proven, effective and environmentally safe chemistries, technologies and methods to treat a wide range of contamination events.


Respond

bioWALL delivers unparalleled mobility and versatility in responding to critical biological and chemical situations – from severe, isolated events to significant environmental threats with downstream impact. bioWALL employs patented DiKlor™ oxidant technology, including high-capacity chlorine dioxide generation systems and treatment methods to remediate harmful bacteria, viruses, molds and various chemical contaminants. Utilizing the most powerful broad-spectrum sterilant available, bioWALL delivers effective solutions with important environmental and safety advantages over other technologies. bioWALL solutions kill bacteria, viruses and other biological contaminants in facilities to a “no growth” standard – the most stringent and absolute standard – with no carcinogenic or toxic byproducts. Physical property is kept intact and odors are destroyed.

MOBILITY & VERSATILITY

bioWALL delivers its solutions using a mobile fleet of patented CHEMGEN™ chlorine dioxide GEN8 generation systems — the most advanced, versatile integrated mobile chlorine dioxide systems available.

bioWALL’s systems are the largest-capacity mobile chlorine dioxide systems in the world, with over 10x the production ability of any other mobile systems. Each small-footprint system houses a powerful chlorine dioxide generator, an internal power plant, a full process control laboratory and temperature-controlled chemical housing, with full-automation capability and fully redundant engineering, ensuring no down-time during treatment operations. bioWALL also offers Replenish™ services, providing chlorine dioxide solutions in fixed-installation, custom, and small-scale chlorine dioxide storage units tailored to specific applications.

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:

    DiKlor™ Sterilant Technology

  • 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.

  • Kills bacteria, viruses and other biological contaminants to a “no growth” standard – the most stringent and absolute standard
  • Quickly and safely decontaminates large facilities or large volumes of water
  • Leaves NO carcinogenic or toxic byproducts
  • Eliminates dangerous sulfides in deteriorated waste
  • Destroys odors
  • Keeps physical property intact

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.

A 20-YEAR HISTORY OF ACCOMPLISHMENT

Hart Senate Office Building

Following the 2001 Anthrax attacks, bioWALL provided 100% cleanup of all impacted locations.

Anthrax

The federal government and private parties recruited bioWALL to remediate all of the structures affected by the 2001 anthrax attacks. The structures ranged in size and complexity, up to the 17-million ft3 Brentwood postal facility. Many of the structures were highly contaminated and all required complete kill on all surfaces within, including carpeting, drywall, air ducts, electronics, furniture, and full file archives. Post-treatment, thousands of wet samples, dry samples and spore strips were tested – the most comprehensive testing on this scale ever administered – and not a single active spore remained after bioWALL’s treatment. bioWALL played a leading role in developing this testing program, which is now the gold standard for efficacy validation and clearance of large structures
