ENcase is an innovative electrolyte disinfectant generator employing the principle of electrochemical reactions. It takes sodium chloride (NaCI) as a precursor and produce the product called ENERclean, which consists of hypochlorous acid (HOCl) as the main component. ENERclean has a pH level of pH4-6, a chlorine content greater than 400 ppm, and an Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) in the range of 900-1200 mV. Hypochlorous acid, (HOCl) is a naturally weak acid similar to the immune system in human leukocytes and an effective oxidizer that helps inhibit and kill most bacteria and viruses found in the hospitals, especially the new Coronavirus 2019 (SARS-CoV-2). ENERclean can be applied in the medical and food industry.
ENcase was developed by Dr. Somsak Supasitmongkol, Researcher, and Clean Fuel Technology and Advanced Chemistry Research Team, together with Dr. Thaneeya Roytrakul, Researcher, and Molecular Biology of Dengue and Flaviviruses Research Team, and Dr. Sittiruk Roytrakul, Researcher, and Miss Pattiya Laksanacharoen, Lab Assistant of Functional Proteomic Technology Research Team of the National Center For Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC) with funding support from the National Research Council of Thailand (NRCT) to promote and build capacity for the public health and hospitals in remote areas to be able to produce disinfectant for in-house usage.
