Car Sanitizing System
The Alphabet CleanAir sanitation service uses the most effective solution on the market. The system developed by OCTO exploits the nanotechnology originally developed by NASA to eliminate viruses, bacteria, fungi; as well as odors and volatile organic compounds with the aim of making the use of cars safer; whether they belong to company car fleets, short and medium term rentals or corporate car sharing. The OCTO solution uses photocatalysis (PCO – Photocatalythic Oxidation), assisted by a bipolar ionization system. The system, totally odorless, is active and effective for sanitizing both the air in the passenger compartment and the surfaces exposed to contact with passengers; being, unlike other technologies, completely harmless. It also guarantees the absence of negative effects on on-board fittings; as there is no production of ozone or other chemical agents harmful to living beings.

The car sanitizing device
The small-sized device can be easily installed on any vehicle. It is inserted under the glove box, integrating perfectly into the context of the passenger compartment. Activation takes place automatically when the car starts and constantly sanitizes the environment while driving. At the end of each journey, a complete sanitization cycle is always activated automatically to restore the hygienic conditions necessary for a new use. This way the driver won’t have to do anything but enjoying the journey.
