Griya Idola, a subsidiary of Barito Pacific Group, takes immediate action to ensure the absolute hygiene level of the building's air circulation. "As Wisma Barito Pacific building management, the safety of our tenants and its employees is our utmost priority. Since the early part of this Covid-19 pandemic, we have been implementing strict guidelines on proper sanitation and continuously disinfect Wisma Barito Pacific building," said Hengky Sidartawan, President Director of PT Griya Idola. "Our team has been searching for further possibilities to keep Wisma Barito Pacific Building as safe as possible and to ensure absolute hygiene level of the building's air circulation, especially from viruses and other harmful microorganisms," he added. It resulted in finding and using air purifier technology, combining specialized UV spectrum and photoPlasma by BIOZONE™ that will filtrate all of the air circulated inside the building through the ventilation system. Starting September 2020, BIOZONE™ air purifier will be installed in all of Wisma Barito Pacific ventilations.
Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a new guideline of Covid-19 airborne transmission possibilities. It came from several experts yet still hasn't been confirmed, which illustrated the virus's ability to stays longer in the air to be inhaled. Despite the need for further investigation, the WHO still suggests people avoid crowds and ensure good circulation in buildings as a part of Covid-19 prevention.
BIOZONE™ PhotoPlasma is generated by airborne molecules such as oxygen and water vapor under the exposure of the specialized UV spectrum. It includes reactive oxygen species that actively capture various air contaminants and rapidly destroy their structures through a chain of reactions. This way, the contaminants are decomposed and finally converted into harmless end-products like carbon dioxide and water in a safe and natural process. The release of PhotoPlasma into indoor air will effectively kill airborne bacteria, viruses, mold, decomposes volatile organic compounds, and remove unpleasant odor. According to the clinical test, BIOZONE™ PhotoPlasma air purifier can deactivate 99% virus under four minutes and has already received clinical certifications from the most reputable laboratories around the world, including in the USA, Australia, Finland, China, Korea, and Singapore. With such high credentials, Griya Idola expects the utilization of BIOZONE™ PhotoPlasma air purifier will effectively prevent Covid-19 transmission hence providing full air protection to the health and safety of all Wisma Barito Pacific occupants.
