LRC Lighting Answers: UV Disinfection Products

LDS LRC Rensselaer 400

Jan 15, 2021

Wednesday, February 10 , 2021 | 1:00 – 2:00 PM ET

Presenters: Andrew Bierman and Jennifer Brons

The Lighting Research Center (LRC) will present a one-hour Live! From the LRC webinar on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 1:00 PM US Eastern Time. The webinar will provide information on recent research the LRC has conducted on Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection products as part of its Lighting Answers publication series.

The webinar will include information on products that produce optical radiation at specific UV or very short visible wavelengths, designed for use in disinfecting indoor building surfaces and/or air. Three key aspects of UV disinfection will be discussed: product effectiveness, radiation safety, and energy use in buildings.

Other important aspects of UV disinfection that will be discussed in the webinar include the wavelengths of optical radiation commonly used for disinfection, key characteristics of UV disinfection products currently on the market, field measurement and assessment of UV disinfection products, and currently available codes and regulations pertaining to these products.

Presenters will also provide guidance for professionals who are considering the specification of UV disinfection products in buildings, including a discussion on selecting the dose of UV radiation needed to inactivate various types of pathogens (viruses, bacteria, or fungi). Information will also be provided about the results of LRC testing of twelve UV disinfection products, representing a variety of product types. This analysis includes a review of manufacturer claims of product performance and well as LRC evaluation of other key attributes of product performance.

Registration

The cost to attend this Live! from the LRC webinar is $25.00. A discounted price of $20.00 is available to employees of LRC Partner and Alliance organizations. This discounted price is also available to residents of New York State, made possible through funding from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.
