Let There Be Light – The Path to No Microbes
Dr. Dimitris Argyropoulos, Finland Distinguished Professor of Chemistry in the College of Natural Resources' Department of Forest Biomaterials, and two other faculty members are creating the company Lumicide. It will produce an innovative nontoxic, green additive for an antimicrobial paint activated by air and light. Painted surfaces, like doorknobs, will kill microbes, viruses and fungi on contact -- ideal for places like hospitals, cruise ships and home nurseries.
