ViruBustor AB develops solutions for decontamination of vehicle environments.

In a vehicle, the engine offers an opportunity for exchanging the air in the interior and decontamination of the discharged air. An internal combustion engine may be thought of as a rapid flame sterilizer: it pumps in air and destroys pathogens in an explosive combustion reaction before expelling the air via high-temperature catalysts.

The approach is relatively simple and can be implemented rapidly, widely, and at low cost because it requires only minimal additional equipment with low space and weight constraints. Proof-of-principle experiments indicate that full sterility can be achieved.
