The Finnish people are very creative when it comes to new innovations. The world changes on its natural pace but occasionally something out of the ordinary triggers off a bigger change. Individuals, communities and companies all alike have had to innovate and find solutions that help them adapt to the changing circumstances.
One of these innovations is Nanoksi Finland’s Fotonit® photocatalytic coating that effectively destroys viruses, bacteria and other impurities on surfaces and in their surrounding air. Domestic and international interest towards the solution is continuously increasing.
Viking Line develops policies that help them keep their passengers’ journey safe amid seasonal illnesses, epidemics and pandemics. Viking Line has had the self-disinfecting Fotonit® coating applied on all public spaces on-board M/S Viking Glory. Fotonit® is a photocatalytic coating, that actives under the available light at any given place and time, and effectively destroys viruses, bacteria, mold spores and other volatile organic compounds on surfaces and in the surrounding air. The effectiveness of the coating has been proven by independent, third-party laboratories. Recommended re-application cycle is 12 months on surfaces that are in heavy use. Fotonit® coating gives additional protection in busy spaces with a lot of people. It is also more effective and safer an option than traditional disinfecting. The method also decreases the workload of those in charge of cleaning and hygiene. Fotonit® is an award-winner in the international Aviation X Lab Accelerate competition. The Finnish product stood out with its efficacy in technology, long-lasting features and diversity.
With all their partners, Nanoksi Finland and Viking Line have committed to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) set by the UN. Fotonit® coating is an invisible and scentless protection, that promotes the health security of people in a non-toxic and environmentally friendly way.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
