WLP Offers a Solution to Contain Coronavirus

Published: 5/5, 2020

We all now live in a changed reality, one reminiscent of a Hollywood horror movie come true. Covid-19 became the proverbial ‘black swan’ that effectively shut down the global economy, closed the borders, and sent the entire nations into lockdown. In Europe, Italy happened to be the worst affected country. Despite the unprecedented measures the Italian government has taken to curb the spread of coronavirus, the death toll keeps climbing. WLP s.r.l., a dust control specialist based in Northern Italy, is doing its bit to combat the pandemic by offering a decontamination system that can considerably reduce the diffusion of the virus.

With severe lockdown measures in place, only businesses that have been classified as “essential” have been allowed to continue operating in Italy. WLP, a trendsetter in dust and odor control technology, has been granted such a status, not least thanks to its NCA (No Contaminated Area) remediation systems.


NCA decontamination system

WLP began to design and build decontamination systems some four years ago, following a magnitude 6.2 earthquake in central Italy in 2016. Many livestock were killed by the collapsing stables, causing a real threat of epidemic. The situation was quickly resolved at the time, but it did prompt the WLP engineering team to look into decontamination issues. Two years later, WLP came up with a solution called NCA - No Contaminated Area, which uses non-toxic additives to hinder the proliferation of dangerous bacteria. A self-contained NCA system consists of an electric generator set, a large-volume tank with decontamination solution and a spraying cannon or nebulizer. Thanks to the on-board electronics and a radio-controlled unit, the system can be operated in remote mode, drastically reducing the risk of the operator becoming infected.


Calling on “Extra Terrestrial” force for help

Currently, the global situation is nothing short of a sci-fi disaster movie. In circumstances like these, the intervention of a higher force seems to be required. WLP has responded to the universal need for the sanitization of indoor environments such as offices, warehouses, and manufacturing facilities by designing a brand-new machine. Code-named ‘ET’, which stands both for “extreme treatment” )and “extraterrestrial,” thanks to its somewhat outlandish design), mobile system features an 18.5-gal (70-liter) tank with sanitizing liquid, permitting an average operation of three hours.

The ET is equipped with a remote-control unit, allowing operation from a safe distance. As the coronavirus crisis worsens, demand for this machine is said to be growing exponentially. Within a space of just two weeks, WLP has supplied more 60 units around the world.
