Innovation for a new era of cleaning: how science and technology is underpinning changing consumer demands and expectations and how we meet them
Wednesday 14th October 14:00 - 14:30
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the drive for global research to address a number of areas in order to fight infection. As a result we are seeing emerging science and technology approaches going beyond the traditional chemical method and instead exploring a hybrid approach combining physical and biological strategies. During this presentation, Dr Eileen Buttimer will explore new innovations that will drive the next generation of cleaning solutions, not just in the professional settings of hospitals and workplaces but for consumers use and in the home as well.
