How does the Jet Green™ technology kill COVID-19?
All organic matter has a thermal death point. That means that there is a temperature at which all organisms will be killed by heat either instantaneously or within a finite period of time. The Jet Green™ Micro Turbine System which was originally designed for effective mold treatment is equally effective at virus decontamination. GETI has a long list of successful mold projects, including West Point Military Academy, the United States Coast Guard, Apartment Complexes, University Student Housing Complexes, Hospital Facilities, and facilities for victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Michael and Maria. Our treatment approach is driven by the type of mold species present, therefore our treatment heat ranges between 150 degrees to 180 degrees Fahrenheit for a time period of up to 3 hours. Viruses are documented to be KILLED under lower temperatures and shorter time durations. When targeting the EBOLA Virus, it may take up to 1 hour of heat treatment at a temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit to kill the virus (Mitchell 1984, Anelich 2014). The COVID-19 can be effectively killed within 30 to 45 minutes depending on the temperature, with ranges from 131 degrees to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (Gerba 1997, Laude 1981, Larkin 1977).
The Jet Green™ Micro Turbine System is a non-chemical solution to complete COVID-19 decontamination. A single unit can treat up to 4,000 square feet in one hour. The system is mobile and can be reconfigured quickly with a small field to continual treat new spaces in a 24-hr cycle.
