Panasonic Marketing Middle East & Africa FZE (PMMAF) and its Nigerian Company, Panasonic Marketing and Services Nigeria Limited (PMSNL) have announced the launch of the brand’s new nanoe™X air conditioners.
nanoe™X Technology was certified by Texcell, a global contract research organisation, for its inhibitory effect on the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).
General Manager, Marketing, for Air Conditioner, Panasonic Marketing Middle East & Africa FZE, Dipendu Goon, said: “As a company that is committed to providing solutions for a better life, the newly launched air conditioners will offer customers 24-hour protection and ensure fresh and clean-living spaces for improved health for a better life.
“We will continue to pursue the potential of nanoe™X Technology to address possible risks associated with air pollution such as new pathogenic micro-organisms. With the launch of our nanoe™X powered AC in Africa, we reaffirm our commitment to creating healthy societies in fast-growing markets like Africa.”
According to the firm, Texcell verified 91.4 per cent of the inhibitory effect on the novel coronavirus in the space of 6.7m3 in eight hours. In September 2020, Panasonic verified, in collaboration with Texcell, the inhibitory effect of the nanoe™X Technology with the benefits of hydroxyl radicals on the novel coronavirus in a small test space of 45L using the nanoe™X generator.
Panasonic explained that the nanoe™X technology is unique to its brand as it collects invisible moisture in the air and applies a high voltage to it to produce “hydroxyl radicals contained in water”. Hydroxyl radicals inhibit the growth of pollutants such as bacteria and viruses.
With the threat of the novel coronavirus continuously looming and with vaccines not yet massively distributed or administered locally, Nigerian consumers continue to struggle with safer breathing spaces and to ensure healthier home and work environments for loved ones and colleagues.
