Two startups at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT-Bombay) have developed alcohol-free sterilizers, which can keep bacteria and viruses free for up to 10 days. Launched on August 15, Avron is actually a nanotechnology-powered viruside. It is a joint venture between Abstract Ideas and Navrok Innovations Pvt. Ltd.

Two startups run by the Society for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SINE) at IIT Bombay embarked on the project to build resistance against the Covid-19 supermarket. ‘We have received a grant of Rs one crore for the development and marketing of the product. We sent the first batch of sterilizers on Monday, ”said Diptesh Mukherjee, an alumnus of IIT Bombay and co-founder of Abstract Ideas.

Agastya Boyant of IIM Kolkata has created a thing that will clean the surface of rivers and sea water. The sterilizer is alcohol free and once sprayed any area will be viruses and bacteria free.

‘Our product can kill 99.999% of viruses and bacteria in just 5 minutes. The place will be free of bacteria and viruses for 10 days, ”said Sehwag, co-founder of Navorok and Abhishek Sehgal of IIT Delhi and KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. The demand for this sterilizer is very high. About 40% of its customers are medical supplier distributors, 30% are companies established in the industry and the remaining 30% are the general public.

The 250 ml spray bottle is priced at Rs 240 and the 500 ml bottle is available at Rs 360. A large 5 liter jar is available at Rs 1,1,750. The technology was patented four months ago and will soon be available on the e-commerce portal from September.
