As communities across the world search for ways to quickly protect the health and safety of their residents, De Nora delivered a mobile on-site sodium hypochlorite (bleach) generator to Fort Bend County, Texas. The mobile on-site disinfection system, similar to those used for water treatment in the onshore fracking process, will produce 1,500 pounds per day of sodium hypochlorite at a low concentration of 0.8%, equivalent to 25,000 gallons a day. De Nora is providing the ClorTec mobile treatment unit to the community, which will be used to produce bleach for cleaning 300 squad cars, 13 offices, and 300 jail cells with over 900 inmates. The county will supply to the general public freshly made 32-ounce spray bottles of sodium hypochlorite for use in homes.
“Nearly 100 years ago, Oronzio De Nora, the company’s founder, discovered the positive effects of producing chlorine on-site through the electrolysis of a simple saline solution,” said Paolo Dellachà, CEO of De Nora. “Today, De Nora is proud to continue Oronzio’s legacy by supporting our communities during this time of uncertainty. We are supporting our local communities by providing on-site bleach generators in Italy, China, Singapore and Japan. We’re honored to be able to quickly support our neighbors in Fort Bend.”
