BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Space Coast Area Transit staff began technical training today on how to apply a highly effective disinfectant and cleaner called Gencie 200 GDC.
The product kills bacteria such as Salmonella, MRSA and E.coli; human viruses such as Hepatitis A, B & C, Influenza and Coronavirus; and fungi such as mold and algae.
Once properly applied, the active ingredient forms a protective and invisible layer on the surface, becoming an integral part of the surface.
Patented and registered with the Environmental Protection Agency, it is a one-step water-based, non-toxic, non-flammable, odorless disinfectant and microbiostatic agent that is non-harmful to both people and the environment.
Transit Manager of Operations and Maintenance, Lance Parker, came across Gencie 200 GDC while performing extensive research to find a disinfectant and cleaner that would actually stop the transmission of bacteria and viruses from one person to another on bus seats, handles, doors, and facilities.
“This cleaner and disinfectant kills 99.9% of illness-causing germs and bacteria on contact making public transit safer for our employees and our passengers by stopping the transmission.”
Parker stated it will take about 10-15 minutes to clean a transit bus with the product, and that the buses will be treated every 5 days, even though the product self-sanitizes for up to one month.
“We want to insure we are in the maximum window of effectiveness on every bus, every day,” Parker said. Every Saturday night, both transit terminals will be cleaned with the same product.
According to Gencie, the science behind the cleaner and disinfectant creates a thin layer of sub-micron nano-spikes that instantly pierce the membranes of bacteria, germs, viruses, and algae.
The disinfectant kills cells mechanically not chemically and therefore is environmentally friendly as no harmful chemicals are discharged.
It does not discriminate against any bacteria, virus, or algae, making it impossible for the cells to become “superbugs” and resistant to the disinfectant.
Parker emphasized that no one claimed that the product stopped the spread of COVID-19, something that will be impossible to do until a vaccine has been located.
“We are still strongly requesting that all riders continue to wear masks, use hand sanitizer, social distance when possible, and not ride if they feel sick to stop the spread of COVID-19,” he said.
“In turn, we want to do our part by ensuring that we do everything we can to stop the spread of a broad spectrum of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. We are very excited about the benefits this product brings to both our riders and employees.”
