What is UVGI?
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is UV light in the UV-C wavelengths ranging from 200 to 280nm which is known to have a germicidal effect on organisms. According to the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA), UVC light has been used for more than 40 years for disinfecting drinking water, waste water, air, and surfaces against a wide range of human pathogens, mold, fungi, and bacteria.
