In 1839, a scientist by the name of Michael Faraday discovered a groundbreaking technological phenomena known as electrolysis. The basic principle is that an electric current is passed through a substance to cause a chemical change. The chemical change is one in which the substance loses or gains an electron (oxidation or reduction). The actual scientific process is a bit more complex than this, with there being different uses for electrolyzed water. GenEon uses this technology to allow users to produce an electrically charged mixture of water and proprietary minerals known as Electrolyzed Water on demand. This process creates one-step, multipurpose products that offer safe and sustainable cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting solutions. Our on-site generation technology provides a competitive advantage in terms of product efficiency, eco-friendliness, and simplicity. We'll talk a bit more about this later.

GenEon's On Site-Generation Technology Produces Electrolyzed Water on Demand

Uses for Electrolyzed Water

In short, let's just think of electrolyzed water as an alternative to chlorine. There are many ways to use this solution. It can be used effectively as a sanitizer in food, agriculture, aquaculture, and the medical industry. Electrolyzed water can also be used to disinfect produce. In the book Post-harvest Disinfection of Fruits and Vegetables, "Electrolyzed water has gained more interest recently in food sanitization and safety against plant pathogens, seed treatment, postharvest disease control, fungal control, and foodborne pathogens." Additionally, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved this method to sanitize food contact surfaces, equipment, and for washing of fruits and vegetables. According to the report "Electrolyzed Water as a Novel Sanitizer in the Food Industry: Current Trends and Future Perspectives," this technology has been used in intervention technologies that include antibiotics, vaccinations, cleaning, and wiping; it has also been successfully used to cut down on, or even prevent, diseases in animals. In the medical field, solutions using electrolyzed water have been used extensively to keep surfaces clean and free of bacteria that can easily be passed from one patient to the next. According to an L.A. Times article, Simple Elixir Called a Miracle Liquid, "A New York poultry processor uses it to kill salmonella on chicken carcasses; Minnesota grocery clerks spray sticky conveyors in the checkout lanes; Michigan jailers mop with electrolyzed water to keep potentially lethal cleaners out of the hands of inmates." These are just a few common uses that show the range of ways this technology can be used, and it seems as if there is no end in sight. This same article points out that it can be used as a cleaner and disinfectant, that it kills athlete's foot and it emphasizes the safety, versatility, and effectiveness of electrolyzed water.

Electrolyzed Water is an Eco-Friendly Alternative to Chlorine

GenEon Maximizes Electrolyzed Water for Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting

The process for creating electrolyzed water is called electrochemical activation (ECA). One of the natural minerals that GenEon uses as a catalyst is salt. Salt is a compound comprised of sodium and chloride. Sodium ions are positively charged and chloride ions are negatively charged. GenEon's Onsite Generators expose these ions to a low electrical charge. The positive side of the charge electrochemically converts the chloride ion (Cl) to hypochlorous acid (HOCl), which is a powerful sanitizer. The negative side of the charge electrochemically converts the sodium ion (Na) into sodium hydroxide (NaOH), which is a cleaning compound commonly found in soaps and detergents. Unlike many other OSG systems, GenEon's system is a Blended Stream System that uses both versions in the same solution. The hypochlorous solution is represented as Free Available Chlorine (FAC) that has 80-200 times the sanitizing power of chlorine bleach. Since it is produced at a near-neutral pH, it won't bleach out furniture or clothes. GenEon is the leader in on-site generation of Electrolyzed Water for cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting.

Dwell time (the time it takes for a product to work effectively) is an important part of disinfecting. Most chemical disinfectants require a surface to be kept wet for 10 minutes. ECA's disinfectant will kill most bacteria in seconds, including E.coli, MRSA and norovirus. Cleaners, sanitizers, and disinfectants made with ECA leave no chemical residue, emit no fumes or VOCs, and has no fragrance. This means you get products that are safe, powerful, and effective. All of our cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting products are sustainable and won't harm the environment, people, or pets.

The Process for Creating Electrolyzed Water is Called Electrochemical Activation (ECA)
Along with our sustainable cleaning and disinfecting products, GenEon leads the way in on-site generation technology ideal for both residential and commercial settings. Our on-site generation technology includes the Instaflow for making a high volume of cleaning and sanitizing products on demand. If you're looking for a more compact option, our Trio+ & Trio Maxx system is perfect for compact electrochemical activation of cleaning, degreasing, and sanitizing solutions. We also offer advanced delivery systems that make it easy to apply our cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting products in all types of settings, from the largest commercial facility to residential settings. The Mist delivery system and our smaller Mist 2.5. are ideal for cleaning large open areas or hard to reach places quickly, efficiently, and effectively.

Since our products are made using on-site generation technology, you make only what you need when you need it. This eliminates waste and saves on your yearly cleaning bill. It also eliminates the need to store harmfully chemical-based cleaning products on-premise, which makes it ideal for schools, medical facilities, and the workplace.
