Patent granted for “Plasma Activated Water”

Our patent application for "Plasma Activated Water" was approved in Europe (EP3411085). The patent concerns the production of plasma-activated water for the disinfection of objects, in particular dentures and the treatment of teeth.

Chemical solutions are typically used to clean dentures, but they contain comparatively high concentrations of chemicals. The problem, however, is that these solutions are not suitable for consumption and are harmful if consumed by mistake – similar to toothpaste, which at best should not be swallowed.

Furthermore, for the bleaching of dentures and/or teeth, mostly concentrated hydrogen peroxide is used that is far above the EU limit for non-professional tooth bleaching. Here, plasma-activated water offers a safe, waste-free alternative. The patent protection gained, hence should strengthen terraplasma’s position in plasma technology even more.

Aerosol-assisted cold plasma technology from terraplasma for disinfecting surfaces reaches important milestone

Cold atmospheric plasma (cold plasma for short) is already proving its effectiveness in the treatment of chronic and acute wounds by reducing microorganisms without contact or chemicals. Viruses, fungi and bacteria, including multi-resistant pathogens (MRE), are efficiently and sustainably destroyed by cold plasma. It therefore made sense to extend this active principle to other areas of application, such as the disinfection of objects and surfaces. With a prototype called “tpTop”, a handy and mobile cold plasma decontamination device with aerosol support, it has now been possible to deactivate up to 99.9% of microorganisms within a few seconds of treatment. This opens up new application possibilities for the future, such as the fast and sustainable disinfection of surfaces of all kinds.

Cold plasma, biotech and life science: terraplasma shows sustainable innovations in Munich

“replacing chemicals. the sustainable way.” Under this motto, the innovation leader from Garching near Munich promotes the many different possible uses of cold plasma technology in the areas of biotech and life science. Cold plasma is perfect for replacing conventional disinfection solutions with chemicals, UV, heat or radiation, for example, and thus enables true sustainability. An excellently suitable platform is the BayOConnect event, in which terraplasma actively participates as an exhibitor.

Effective against PFAS: terraplasma successfully tests its own cold plasma technology for water treatment

Successful initial attempts to treat drinking water contaminated with PFAS: this is how terraplasma, the innovation leader in the area of development and implementation of applications with cold atmospheric plasma (in short: cold plasma or cold plasma), succeeded with its self-developed energy-saving cold plasma technology for water treatment alongside other substances such as For example, microorganisms and PFAS can be significantly reduced in a measurable way. In a first, larger series of tests with real water samples from a southern Bavarian PFAS hotspot, some of the so-called “forever chemicals” were reduced by up to almost 30%. Reason enough for the company to further optimize its technology and, together with potential partners, develop it into a ready-made solution for water treatment.
