This project will produce chlorine-based disinfectant for distribution to 300 needy institutions and the vulnerable they serve, in areas such as Tokyo and Osaka, where emergency declarations have been made. These institutions include hospitals, clinics, homes for the elderly, handicapped service agencies, mentally handicapped service agencies, day care centers, nursing homes, home care nursing service agencies, orphanages, kindergartens, child care centers and those serving the homeless.
A state of emergency due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, has been declared by the Japanese government for, Tokyo and other areas across Japan where infections are increasing rapidly. Due to this situation, medical and welfare institutions that serve the vulnerable, such as mentally handicapped, elderly, children, and the homeless are facing shortages of disinfectant to fight the virus.
We will produce safe and highly effective chlorine-based disinfectant at our base, using a chlorinating machine that produces Slightly Acidic Electrolyzed Water (SAEW), a novel disinfectant with a pH value of 5.0 - 6.5. SAEW is produced by the electrolysis of hydrochloric acid, salt and water. The chlorine will be filled into 20 liter (5 gallon) tanks, and delivered to needy institutions by express delivery across Japan.
The long-term impact is that these institutions that take care of the vulnerable, where care has to be done every day, and where infection can easily spread, will be protected from the novel corona virus.
