Preventing The Spread of Pathogens

As professional scientists, medics, professional engineers and architects, we possess decades of experience and knowledge of environments and that are a potential danger to human health from dangerous microbiological hazards. Equally, as experts and researchers, we know how to protect people better too.


For conventional settings, since Covid-19 has become referred to as endemic and set to with us for the foreseeable future (ref. WHO & CDC), this geographically universal threat from a highly infectious and airborne coronavirus pathogen can be managed readily if similar techniques to those commonly applied as standard practice in hygiene-critical & safety-critical environments are transferred.

Omicron attacks people through mainly airborne transmission. (We cover the 80:20 rule in Breathe Safely. CDC and WHO confirms the negligible risk of surface infection now.)

We know OUR ENEMY!

OUR DEFENCE + ARMOURY = Rapid decontamination of infected room air generated by infected persons breathing, talking, shouting, singing:- there-by, making the Air safer for others to Breath. We do this by changing, diluting, and cleaning the Air.

Also, following the HSE risk management guidance on Covid-secure Workplaces, we commend organisations for thinking beyond Covid and considering more rigorous approaches to managing the workplace through well-established techniques such as HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points); or HARPC (Hazard Analysis & Risk-Based Preventive Controls); and HAZOP (Hazard Operability Standard)

We can do much better than just “learn to live with this virus”. With the correct, well-engineered and effective mitigation solutions, we can destroy any coronavirus variant but, equally importantly, other pathogens that create contagious respiratory diseases. We can help our clients to build a new normal, protecting people, essential institutions and the economy. We can be ready for what the future may bring. We can create pandemic resilience for you.

At PP-L, we combine 80 years of scientific & medical research, world-leading air cleaning technologies, specialist ventilation engineering, an intimate knowledge of building design and facilities management to help organisations reduce the risk of viral and pathogenic transmission in their facilities or operations.

One size does not fit all, and every project we look at is different, but typically we will:

  • Gather data on your current facilities, ventilation, engineering assets, air distribution systems (HVAC or AHU’s if present), room sizes, occupancy, humidity, temperature, airflow rates, operational use pattern, bio-load, microbe hazard profile etc. Then, we’ll weigh current risks and resilience measures.
  • Undertake a detailed engineering design, with CFD Modelling if necessary, and microbiological analysis using our bespoke software developed in conjunction with renowned scientific institutions to calculate the lethal dose required to destroy the target biological hazard. Whichever variant of COVID-19 matters not, nor do other viral, bacterial or fungal pathogens. Our solutions are agnostic and highly effective to suit your risks.
  • We will then specify the correct and appropriate PP-L products and advise on optimal deployment for any given environment or end-user requirements based on the above.
  • Finally, we can advise costs and delivery time, safe installation, operations, and maintenance needs, all of which we can do for clients, as a single point design, validated products supplier and solutions provider.

We are not aware of any competitors in our specialist field of Infection Resilient Environments who leverage ventilation and Air cleaning health technologies, possessing solutions that were successfully deployed during the first SARS 2003 COVID pandemic in Hong Kong and Singapore.

These two territories have outperformed the rest of the world in terms of low morbidity and death during this SARS COVID-19 pandemic, with negligible disruption to their economic success. Indeed, their economies have grown because of the advantages our technologies bring to protecting the workforce and business operations.
