Public Views On UV Disinfection Products - Survey Results Now Available
July 29, 2020

The present pandemic crisis has raised the profile of ultraviolet (UV) technologies designed to provide disinfection in a variety of buildings, including hospitals, long term care facilities, food service establishments, and offices. While some UV technologies are mature, several new technologies are not. In particular, new UV-LED products are now being offered for sale. With increasing options for products and applications, many consumers and product specifiers have questions about the safety, effectiveness, and energy efficiency of these products.

In order to address these concerns, the Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is currently examining a range of UV disinfection technologies. The goal of this work is to provide information that will help decision makers select UV products that are effective, safe, and energy efficient. A unique feature of this effort is the testing and evaluation of several UV disinfection products. This project is supported by members of the LRC’s Lighting Energy Alliance and the McClung Lighting Research Foundation.

"A hallmark of the LRC over the past 30 years has been our ability to accurately measure and evaluate lighting and related technologies," said Dr. Mark Rea, the lead researcher on this effort. "Timely, accurate information on the performance and safety of UV products is crucial to people making decisions about the purchase and use of these technologies." 

To launch the project, the LRC administered an online survey asking about people's experiences with and concerns about UV disinfection products. Responses to the survey were received from over 200 people in June and July 2020.
