Pro-In® minimiza el riesgo de infección en el aeropuerto y ayuda a solucionar el problema mundial de residuos plásticos.

Aeropuertos: Las bandejas de los controles de seguridad están altamente contaminadas con gérmenes y bacterias, según un estudio científico.

ESCHBORN, ALEMANIA, April 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — En los aeropuertos, las bandejas de los controles de seguridad son un riesgo para la salud, que hasta ahora había pasado inadvertido. Un estudio* científico reciente, ha demostrado un alto nivel de carga microbiana y viral, que muestra un riesgo significativo de infección y contribuye a la rápida propagación de gripe y otras epidemias. Sobre esta base, la Startup Pro-In® Protect Innovations, ha desarrollado un protector especial para minimizar el riesgo de infección procedente de las bandejas. Así mismo, el producto puede contribuir a reducir el impacto ambiental de los residuos plásticos a nivel mundial.

A finales de agosto de 2018, el Instituto Nacional de Salud y Bienestar de Finlandia, en cooperación con la Universidad de Nottingham (Inglaterra) y la Unión Europea, publicó un estudio* sobre la carga viral y de gérmenes en los aeropuertos. El nivel más alto de contaminación se encontró en las bandejas del punto de control de seguridad, donde se colocan el equipaje de mano y artículos personales para su inspección. Como resultado, las bandejas del control de seguridad son un riesgo clave para la salud y multiplicadores en epidemias y pandemias.

Los patógenos permanecen activos durante días en las bandejas y en las pertenencias personales. Hasta ahora, no se había expuesto ninguna solución. Por primera vez, la empresa alemana Pro-In® Protect Innovations, ha creado Pro-In® Protect Inlay: un protector especialmente desarrollado para las bandejas de los controles de seguridad. Se coloca sobre la bandeja del control y se desecha inmediatamente después de su uso, eliminando el contacto directo entre la superficie de la bandeja y las pertenencias personales, de este modo evitando la contaminación durante todo el control de seguridad.
Eckhard Melz de Pro-In® Protect Innovations: "La cubierta protectora proporciona una solución segura e higiénica que beneficia la salud de todos los involucrados en el control. De manera simple, minimiza el riesgo de transmisión de patógenos y suciedad".
Debido a la aplicación simple y rápida, no se retrasa el proceso del control de seguridad.

Actualmente se produce en Polietileno totalmente reciclable o procedente de residuos de plástico. Utilizando plástico reciclado de varias fuentes como los océanos, a parte de su reciclaje, se puede transformar el producto usado en una energia limpia, mediante una planta de valorización de residuos integrada.
Eckhard Melz: „Producimos un producto útil de los residuos plásticos para proteger nuestra salud, y luego lo desechamos ecológicamente, ayudando así a limpiar el planeta.”
La innovadora protección se adapta a las exigencias de los aeropuertos, aerolíneas, organizaciones con controles de seguridad y hoteles.
