AUSTIN (KXAN) — Y’all can feel it coming in the air tonight, ozone.
A local consortium is already turning results in the fight against COVID-19 months after its inception.
The Texas Global Health Security Innovation Consortium, organized by the Austin Technology Incubator, made a collaboration of companies possible to conduct a demonstration at a local company.
“We wanted to have a solution that was going to be usable over and over again that would work within the culture of commercial building industry and be effective,” Panache Development & Construction president Adam Zarafshai said.
The company assembled Texas Air Industries and others to solve a problem they had: COVID-19.
Shahram Shafie, an Austin technology entrepreneur with Texas Air Industries, and other engineers demonstrated an ozone disinfecting system Wednesday afternoon at Panache’s main office in east Austin.
