Airborne Disinfection by Aerosol Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)

Like Ozone, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a powerful oxidizer that can disinfect too. Hydrogen peroxide can be sprayed around a room in an aerosol form, using a pretty cool system that rotates 360º while spraying. Here’s a video:
We have never seen one of these in operation, so we cannot personally attest to its effectiveness. It is, however, marketed as a thorough disinfectant. We thought it was worth mentioning.

That said, it appears this system is designed to disinfect only one room… and a small room at that. For a recreation center with an indoor swimming pool, it probably is not the right fit. Ozone in the HVAC or Bi-Polar Ionization sounds like a much more scalable solution to treat multiple rooms at once.

Aerosol Hydrogen Peroxide as Disinfectant

Hydrogen peroxide is active against a wide range of microorganisms, including bacteria, yeasts, fungi, viruses, and spores. A 0.5% accelerated hydrogen peroxide demonstrated bactericidal and virucidal activity in 1 minute and mycobactericidal and fungicidal activity in 5 minutes.

Hydrogen peroxide can be corrosive to the eyes, skin, and respiratory system. This chemical can cause burns to the skin and tissue damage to the eyes. Rinse thoroughly with water if you get hydrogen peroxide on your skin. You may need to rinse for up to 20 minutes if it gets in your eyes. Due to these potential hazards, hydrogen peroxide should not be used when there is an occupancy. Hydrogen peroxide vapor is only safe to use in unmanned space.

Inhalation of vapors, mists, or aerosols from concentrated solutions of hydrogen peroxide can cause significant morbidity. Because it is nearly odorless and nonirritating except at high concentrations, persons may not be aware of its presence. No odor threshold was located for hydrogen peroxide (the OSHA PEL is 1 ppm).
