BioNovelus’ Enviro-Safe CR-10 Disinfectant Approved in Guatemala

Phoenix, April 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- / CR-10 Disinfectant, the disruptive and eco-friendly disinfectant from BioNovelus Inc. (ONOV) has been approved by the Ministerio de Salud Pública – Guatemala’s ministry of health – for use as a disinfectant.

This is expected to come as welcome news to farmers in Guatemala concerned with the safety of their crops post-harvest. Although there are other solutions for disinfection available, management believes that our CR-10 Disinfectant is safer, easier to use, less harmful to the environment and more effective in killing sources of foodborne poisoning than the toxic chemicals and ammonium-based products traditionally used in post-harvest sanitation.

It also comes as welcome news to BioNovelus President, CEO and founder, Jean Ekobo, who has worked hard with his team for approval and registration from the Ministry. “We are happy that we can now finally sell CR-10 Disinfectant in Guatemala. We are looking forward to starting sales in this country.

About CR-10 Disinfectant
Research has shown that CR-10 Disinfectant kills bacteria and viruses on contact, including E. coli, Salmonella, Clostridium difficile (C. difficile), Campylobacter, Norwalk virus (Norovirus), and others [Source: Dr. M. Oulé, Ph.D. of Canada’s University of Saint Boniface]. BioNovelus’ management believes that CR-10 is safer, easier, and more effective in killing these sources of foodborne poisoning than commonly used toxic chemicals such as bleach, alcohol, or quaternary ammonium-based products.

According to Dr. Oulé, CR-10 Disinfectant is organic, non-toxic, 100 percent biodegradable, and has a longer efficacy life span protection effect. Because of this, the Company believes CR-10 has the potential to be a real gamechanger in the food biosecurity space.
