The Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) said it will begin testing a new device using ultra-violet (UV) light as part of its cleaning arsenal at T. F. Green Airport (PVD).

Starting this week NuvaWave’s UVC Handheld Device, developed by Innovators, will be deployed in the North Baggage Claim area. The medical-grade technology will be used as a supplement to disinfect ‘high touch’ surface areas. The powerful UV light technology is uniquely lethal to microorganisms and pathogens causing healthcare-acquired infections and has been independently tested to kill more than 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in two seconds, RIAC said.
