PUP engineering students invent ultraviolet disinfection conveyor machine

Polytechnic University of the Philippines Intellectual Property Management Office Director Prof. Ginno Andres shows on Monday, June 20, 2022, inside PUP’s Sta. Mesa campus in Manila how the newly-invented prototype ultraviolet disinfection conveyor machine works.

The machine can disinfect documents and other materials used on a daily basis (like papers, folders, bags, etc).

It will help different government agencies in disinfecting documents and everyday materials to stop the spread of COVID 19.

The machine was developed by the PUP Mechanical Engineering students and the Intellectual Property Management Office-Research team headed by Prof. Andres.

At the moment, they have already developed seven (7) machines and will distribute them to other PUP offices. Prof. Andres said they are seeking help from funders to develop more units.
