About Us

Decontamination and High level disinfection

Decon-O-Logic is a division of Aqua Ecologic who is specialised in manufacturing stable chlorine dioxide solutions.  Aqua Ecologic focusses on liquid applications for disinfection of all kinds of water.  Based on our experience in manufacturing stable liquid CD solutions,  we reinvented the technology to develop a chlorine dioxide fumigation technique that ensures high material compatibility with no restrictions on available decontamination volume.

 

The core activity of Decon-O-Logic is delivering onsite and offsite decontamination or high level disinfection by CD fumigation. Our focus is to produce and to apply the highest quality CD solutions in accordance to industry’s most stringent decontamination and safety demands.

 

For mobile applications, a cooperation has been set up with ClorDiSys Solutions Inc., who has many years of expertise in the CD decontamination services for routine or single-time events in the United States of America.

CD

Decontamination and High level disinfection

The history of Chlorine Dioxide (CD) is over 200 years old. After the successful introduction as water disinfectant, the application range of CD as a sterilizing agent has been increasing ever since.
Read why CD should be the sterilising agent of your
choice.

Properties of CD

History CD

  • A gas

    • Boiling point = 11°C ⇒ perfect gas at room temperature
    • Molecular size: 0,124nm ⇒ thorough material penetration.
    • Behaviour: ideal gas ⇒ homogeneous distribution
    • Color: yellowgreen ⇒ accurate and continuous online monitoring
    • High water solubility ⇒ penetration of wet surfaces

     

  • Safe

    • Leaves no residuals : no allergic reactions
    • Immediate release of sterilised items : directly useable
    • not carcinogenic
    • non explosive and non inflamable at used concentrations
      (>factor 15 lower)
    • CD fumigation : at 20°C, no vapor, no heat
  • Gentle for materials

    • CD fumigation : no vapor, no heat
    • Hence compatible with moist and heat sensitive materials
    • CD has a very low corrosion potential
    • Our CD fumigation utilises low CD exposure
  • But powerful towards microbes

    • Quick and complete biocidal action
    • Minimal log6 sterilisation, higher on demand
    • Effective against all of microorganisms (spores, vegetative bacteria, viruses, fungi, molds and yeasts)
    • At present, not a single treated microorganism has shown (genetic)modification/adaptations
  • 1814 : Discovery of Chlorine Dioxide

    Sir Humphrey Davy, a British chemist, had discovered the Chlorine Dioxide (CD) molecule. Although he fully understood the chemistry,

    he was probably not aware of the enabled possibilities: CD will prove to be more effective at disinfection than any other comparable disinfectant.

  • 1944 : CD is introduced into a drinking water treatment

    To mitigate taste and odor problems, CD was introduced into a water treatment plant at Niagara Falls, N.Y., USA. Other municipalities soon followed. Apart from the better taste and absence of odour, the microbial water quality improved due to CD’s inherent disinfecting properties.

  • 1950’s : CD is introduced in Brussels drinking water production

    In 1956, Brussels (Belgium, Europe) switched from chlorine to CD for drinking water disinfection. In the 1950s, CD usage in water treatment increases remarkably. Moreover, yet another important advantage of CD was discovered. CD destroys and removes biofilm and algal slime, both possible safe nesting harbours for harmful microbes.

  • 1967 : EPA (USA) registers CD as disinfectant

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, USA) registered an aqueous formulation of CD as sanitizer and disinfectant. Even though CD aggressively attacks pathogens, it is extremely safe for human and environment.

  • 1970’s - early 1980’s : EPA recommends CD for water treatment

    The EPA began recommending CD instead of chlorine for water treatment, amongst others due to the absence of harmful disinfection byproducts.

  • 1988 : EPA (USA) registers CD as steriliser

    The EPA registered CD as a sterilizer. Hence, CD is declared both safe and effective for usage in hospitals, healthcare facilities, and laboratories.

  •   2000 : CD fumigation has become a common technology

    In USA, CD fumigation has become a common technology for decontamination in the healthcare industry, a.o. against Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs).

  • 2001 : CD is used against the Anthrax attacks

    CD was the principal agent used in the decontamination of buildings in the United States after the 2001 Anthrax attacks.

  • 2005 : CD is used after hurricane Catarina

    Hurricane Catarina (America) destroyed major parts of New Orleans, Louisiana and the surrounding Gulf Coast. CD fumigation was used to eradicate dangerous mold from houses inundated by the flood water

  • 2014 : Decon-O-Logic starts Cd fumigation optimalisation

    DeconOlogic (Belgium) develops and improves the CD fumigation technology. Our customers benefit from high level sterilisation 2.0 by means of fully optimised CD fumigation. The technology overcomes any restriction towards microbial contaminants or towards volumes to be treated. Our CD fumigation is safe for materials and does not leave any harmful residuals.

CD FUMIGATION

Decontamination and High level disinfection

Our patented CD fumigation is a low-temperature sterilisation technology. After a sealed room is climatically conditioned, there is an exposure to a given CD concentration during a defined period of time. The sealed room can be either a Decon Chamber, (part of) a building, a vehicle, ... . The fulfillment of the predefinied criteria enables a parametric release, ensuring log6 decontamination.

The technology overcomes any restriction towards microbial contaminants or volumes to be treated.

Our customers benefit from high level decontamination by means of fully optimised Chlorine dioxide fumigation.

Our CD fumigation is safe for materials and does not leave any harmful residuals.
