TOKYO, April 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Anti-Germ Earth Alliance, a non-profit organization founded to help earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis victims and emergency workers in Japan, and financial sponsors Advantec Co., Ltd and Cool Earth Co., Ltd, donate the world's most advanced ANTI-GERM/ANTI-VOC SYSTEM by XTIO2 INC. (XTI) to the affected communities. The XTI™ Nano Facemask is the world's only facemask with 99.999% anti-germ efficacy. The revolutionary nanocoating XTI 360™ Active-Shield cleans indoor air by eliminating germs and VOCs.
XTI, the green nano-technology company that offers innovative anti-germ products and services that were selected as VIP presents for the 83rdAcademy®Award/Oscar® nominees and environmentally-conscious Hollywood celebrities on Earth Day 2011, has developed the world's only non-binder nanocoating with SGS-proven anti-bacterial efficacy greater than 99.999% on coated surfaces and materials: fabrics, ABS-plastics, ceramic tiles, etc.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warns the world to prepare for more nuclear accidents on the scale of Chernobyl and Japan's Fukushima which is a reminder of planet Earth's unstable phase and intensifying global events: hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornados, floods and drug-resistant superbugs.
Flu has been spreading among Fukushima evacuees raising a risk of pneumonia and other infections. The diseases spreading among the victims of natural catastrophes escalates with time, and diseases become more contagious and serious. Institute of Infectious Diseases urges: "Those who have symptoms should wear a mask."
Mr. Yamana, President of Advantec, stresses the importance of post-event sterilization needs in Japan: "XTI is proven to manufacture the world's best anti-germ facemask and the XTI 360 nanocoating is the best sustainable sterilization method to minimize indoor germ-counts and spread of germs - critical for Japan right now. "
The XTI Anti-Germ System includes:
XTI™ ANTI-GERM FACEMASK has a revolutionary 99.999%+ anti-bacterial efficacy. It is green, safe, self-cleaning, regenerated by light, and the most powerful personal defense barrier against cold and flu viruses, drug-resistant superbugs (NDM-1/MRSA/CRKP) spreading around the world with 44% mortality rates, E-Coli, H1N1, H2N2, H3N2, ALLERGY-causing air pollutants and radioactive dust. Its smallest, highly carcinogenic particles (5~20um) can enter the respiratory tract. The three-layer (0.3um) mask traps and burns toxic particles using the world's smallest (2~5nm) titanium-dioxide(TiO2) nanoparticles in daytime and 24 hr(TiO2Ag) formulas. (Note: 1um = 1,000nm)
Mr. Hosaka, President of Cool-Earth states: "Conventional facemasks are insufficient for extended use. The XTI Anti-Germ Facemask has the strongest sustainable anti-germ function and the longest usage time. XTI is the next generation face-mask that is perfect for the Japan market."
According to market research company Fuji Keizai Co. the Japanese market for facemasks (not anti-germ) grew 80% in 2009 to US$745 million (61-billion-YEN) from 2008. Demand will likely exceed US$1.2 billion (100-billion-YEN) in 2011 with continuous market growth.
XTI 360™ ACTIVE-SHIELD NANOCOATING prevents infectious diseases from spreading by utilizing UV-light to burn toxins (VOCs), radioactive dust, bacteria and viruses on interior surfaces, clothing, countertops, appliances and in the air before they come in contact with the skin. It is the only sterilization method that is sustainable and safe consisting of only ultra-pure water(99.5%) and TiO2-nanoparticles (0.5%).
Anti-Germ Earth Alliance invites worldwide companies and organizations to donate XTI supplies to Japan matching their donation.
