Future Applications

Building on Ceravision's strong foundation of research and development, our scientists and technicians are continung to develop the HEP lighting technology to exploit opportunities.  

The following are other applications that can be addressed:

  1. UV-C Treatments for commercial non-chemical control of plant diseases on crops to reduce losses.  The protective effects of UV-C treatments, which stimulate plant defences, can induce resistance against a range of pathogens pre and post-harvest on crops. 
  2. UV-C for germicidal irradiation in Water Sterilisation: a purely physical, chemical-free process.  To efficiently reduce parasites such as cryptosporidia or giardia, which are extremely resistant to chemical disinfectants, and to remove chlorine and chloramine species from water.
  3. UV-C for germicidal irradiation in Air Purification: To reduce airborne-mediated microbial diseases such as influenza and tuberculosis which present major public health challenges. 

Please contact us if you would like to discuss the possibilities of utilising HEP technology in these sectors or other applications in which you may be interested.
