Potential Energy Savings up to 38.1%

Standard

World's oldest working astronomical clock - Prague OrlojDurability and Performance

Two independent studies show the use of Bioni exterior coatings (Perform & Roof) can save up to 38.1% on bill to bill energy savings, and help prevent the aging process.

Bioni exterior coatings help reduce a buildings thermal load and aging process significantly.
  • Applying Perform white, Perform flora 22, Perform sol 02, and Perform terra 20 on the building exterior can result in a decrease in cooling loads by 38.1%, 35.9%, 33.7% and 27.9% respectively
  • Classification by University of Athens (Building Physics Department): “COOL PAINT”

Assumptions and measurements:

  • Top floor apartment of 100 sq./m in Singapore
  • Annual electrical energy saving = 38,952.8 / 2.49 = 15,643.7 kWh
  • Based on SP Services December 2009 electricity rate = 22 cents per kWh the annual electricity cost saving is = 15,643.7 x 0.22 = $ 3,442

Bioni, a food processors dream come true?

Standard

Let’s face the facts! The food & beverage processing industry deals with threats of bacteria contamination and mold every day.  Most of these facilities are taking every measure possible to prevent the costly contamination.  The problem is these facilities are perfect environments for microbes to survive and thrive due to high moisture and all the nutrients that bacteria and mold needs to grow.

There has never been a true solution that works for walls, ceilings, and doors other than costly cycles of cleaning and constant refurbishing of the substrates.

To put it simple, Bioni can drastically help eliminate and prevent these problems and help save money.

How does Bioni save money?

From the start Bioni’s goal was to specifically design a coating for the exact environments in the food and beverage processing industry and help solve an industry pain.

As a coatings industry first, Bioni Systems offer a permanent protection on the coating film against deadly bacteria (e.g. Listeria, E. Coli, MRSA) as well as harmful mold and mildew for the entire life of the coating.*  Due to Bioni’s superior durability and the ability to apply the system over existing mold and rustyes you can apply Bioni System over mold and rust“, having Zero VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) and no odor, Bioni System reduces downtime through less preparation, shorter application time, and the ability to apply in occupied areas. Bioni also helps significantly reduces costly cleaning cycles, is permanently moisture regulating and provides an opportunity to reduce insurance costs as well as helps prevent expensive fines levied by government agencies.  Bioni has the highest Class A non-flammability (ASTM E84), 0 flame spread, 5 smoke development and improves factory appearance while sustaining look and performance without having to rebuild or coverup (rebuilding/renovation does not prevent the problem from happening again).  All of this helps one very important thing as well, production time.

Bioni coatings have a US patent (US #7736423).

Seattle Home with Bioni Perform (Before and After)

Standard

A picture is worth a 1,000 words…

The below pictures are before and after of a home located in Seattle that had obvious mold, mildew, and weathering problems. Bioni Perform also provides anti-aging so the substrate (e.g. wood, concrete, stucco etc.) lasts a very long time without suffering from the negative effects of the environment.  Be sure to see Bioni Roof which provides the same protection for numerous substrates.  Both products are Zero VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) and show the ability to save up to 38.1% on bill to bill energy savings.

New CRKP super-bug infecting hundreds in Southern California hospitals

Standard

Health officials in southern California are trying to prevent panic as a Superbug continues to spread among hospitals.

According to The Daily Mail (U.K.), reports of a spread of the drug-resistant virus Klebsiella pnueumoniae (CRKP) have raised concern at some hospitals.

About 40 percent of people infected with CRKP, a bacteria related to E. coli, die. It causes severe kidney damage and has fought any antibiotics used to treat it.

The Los Angeles County Dept. of Public Health confirmed that 350 people were infected with CRKP during a 7-month period during 2010. Among those cases, more than half (53 percent) were acquired from acute-care hospitals. At least 41 percent were acquired at long-term hospitals and another 6 percent from nursing homes.

People – especially the elderly – are most likely to acquire CRKP. Long stays in a hospital or taking antibiotics for extended periods of time increase the risk of acquiring the Superbug.

Food Processing Problems and Solution

Standard

WHY BIONI?

Bioni can offer a long-term solution to the problems you see in the video below.  These are typical problems in the Food & Beverage Industry.  Companies now have a solution with Bioni.

Solution

Bioni System Food can eliminate the problems seen in the video and save Food & Beverage processing companies hundreds of thousands of dollars and numerous headaches.  Mold, bacteria, and other microbial threats cannot inhibit the coating film FOR THE LIFE OF THE COATING.  Bioni is extremely durable, which allows for pressure washing and the use of typical cleaners used in F&B processing without the need to worry about Bioni losing it’s functions.

Bioni also has the highest Class A (Per ASTM E84) Non-Flammability (0 flame spread, 5 smoke development)

With a constant eye on the environment, all Systems and Products do not just meet the minimum requirement of “Green” we’re Zero VOC (Volitile Organic Compounds).

The below picture is 6 months after the application of System Food on the ceiling and walls.  The previous application of another coating, which is commonly used in F & B processing experienced problems after just 4 months!  These problems (Peeling, Flaking, Mold & Bacteria) start because these coatings are not designed to withstand the typical environment within F & B processing facilities.  This has always been the problem and the reason why Bioni felt the need to design something far different and innovative.  With the advanced manufacturing process of Nanotechnology and the help of one of the largest (more than 10,000 scientists) and most prestigious scientific institutes in the world The Fruanhofer Institute, Bioni has accomplish the goal in manufacturing the most advanced coating on the planet with benefits and functions never before possible.  Bioni is patented internationally (Patent # US 7736423)

You can’t change the processing environment but you can change the surface with Bioni.

As mentioned in a our previous post (here), Bioni was just tested against Listeria, E. Coli, & Pseudomonas aeruginosa, these top the list of some of the most serious bacteria’s F & B facilities face.

After just 4 days no sign of the bacteria was found inhibiting the coating film.  Bioni also has a log-5 (99.999%) reduction of MRSA (Staphylococcus aureus) & VRE (Enterococcus faecalis) on the coating film*.

Efficacy of Bioni against E. Coli, Listeria…

Standard

Breaking NEWS!

DEADLY BACTERIA

A recent test was conducted regarding the efficacy of Bioni against the listed bacteria:

Escherichia coli (E. Coli)
Listeria monocytogenes
Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa)

The test report shows none of the bacteria listed above were detectable after 4 days.*

Bioni already has a proven 5-log (99.999%) reduction of MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and VRE (Enterococcus faecium)*

Bioni never loses it’s effect.  Bioni works for the life of the coating.
