Protecting the world from viruses

CEO message

Humans and animals are always at risk of being infected by viruses like COVID-19 and bird flu, and the spread of these viruses will affect our daily lives significantly.

Chemical sterilization offers strong bactericidal effects, but it can be harmful to human bodies in most cases, so there are limitations on its use in our daily lives. Our company aims to protect the world from viruses using the world’s most advanced low temperature atmospheric plasma technology that is harmless to human beings.

A lot of studies on “how to utilize low temperature atmospheric plasma to completely ionize high temperature plasma that was discharged under special environment like high temperature and vacuum” have been conducted across the world, and a lot of experiment results have been reported.

The low temperature atmospheric technology will change the future of the society and the environment, including the medical fields, agricultural industry, and many other fields.

It is a forefront technology that will turn to a large-scale business, and also a game-changing technology that will change the future by creating new innovations that are beyond our imaginations.

We aim to contribute to the future society by developing the most advanced plasma equipment and conducting research on new plasma applications.

Creating The Future

JIS: Japan Institute of Future Science, Inc. – Business Purposes

The evolution of plasma technology in recent years is remarkable, and it is possible now to discharge atmospheric plasma under various conditions such as at room temperature and low temperature, including below 0℃, and in liquid. These new technologies are called as “atmospheric low temperature plasma technologies”, which are the opposite to the conventional high temperature plasma technology.  Japan is known for its world class plasma science and technologies, which includes the plasma ion engine installed in an artificial satellite “Hayabusa”.

This state-of-the-art plasma technology will be applied in many fields as an innovative technology and is currently drawing attention for its futuristic innovations.

Low temperature / cold temperature plasma science and technology is one of the core technologies that promotes innovations in the following fields: environment, lifestyle, safety and security, and sanitary management, which leads the development and creation of future technologies in many fields.

For example, it leads to the development of next-generation vehicles, aircraft, rockets, houses, power electronics, smartphones, high-efficiency solar battery, fuel battery, food safety, solutions for food shortages, next-generation cancer treatment, public health system, and next-generation agricultural and fishery system.

We will create new fusion technology such as “Plasma Life Science”, “Plasma Environmental Energy Science”, and “Plasma Material Device Science” to create future industries and social innovations.

We always secure high superiority by creating original devices, developing innovative applications using low temperature and cold temperature plasma technology, building international collaborative network to support all industries in deepening the cutting-edge plasma science and in measuring the bottom-up of plasma science. We will contribute to the sustainable development of humankind by developing social infrastructure with our scientific knowledge.

For the first time in the world, we have succeeded in large-area plasma discharge and multi-layering, enabling mass processing and promoting commercialization. It will be possible to mass-process carbon dioxide from automobiles, ships, airplanes, power plants, factories, etc. using only electricity.

Plasma water (in productization phase)

Heat treatment and chemical sterilization were used in medical fields, agricultural industry, and food industry before, but different sterilization method, including irradiating water with plasma was invented to solve heat denaturation and reduce chemical residues, but the issues were not only about the reactivity and energy density. The performance range of the device was too narrow, so the sterilization process was very time consuming, so we invented an ultra-high speed and highly reactive sterilization system for high flow of water and things by increasing the performance range of the multi-gas plasma jet and making it possible to irradiate plasma directly to the water. The plasma water produced by the plasma jet is environmentally friendly as it returns to normal water after left for about an hour. Our plasma water can solve the chemical residues issues since it is pesticide-free and can reduce the pesticide amount on food without causing heat denaturation. It also can significantly reduce the amount of food loss since it keeps the food sterile and fresh for a longer period.

Technologies

What is plasma !?

The state of “ice” changes from solid to liquid and then from liquid to gas as the temperature rises.

When the temperature of the gas rises, the molecules of the gas dissociate into atoms, and when the temperature rises further, the electrons orbiting the nucleus separate from the atoms and separate into positive ions and electrons. This phenomenon is called “ionization”.

And the gas containing charged particles generated by ionization is called “plasma”. Plasma is an aggregate of radicals (active species), electrons (electrons), ions (ionizers), and photons (light). Plasma releases molecules and atoms apart, destroying the shape of matter.

AOP (accelerated oxidation treatment method)

There are various types of viruses such as coronavirus and influenza virus, but the composition and morphology of the viruses are the same. There is a difference between DNA (double helix) and RNA (single helix), but the surface is covered with a protein film called a capsid or envelope. ROS (Reactive Oxidation Species) mixed multi-gas plasma produced by the stirizer extracts hydrogen from the protein film on the surface of the virus and promotes oxidation. Furthermore, due to the property that a small amount of ozone (O3) wants to return to oxygen, one "O" of ozone (O3) attaches to nucleic acid and promotes oxidation. After that, the virus is cleaned by thoroughly oxidizing the nucleic acid until the vapor phase hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) decomposes itself.

Next-generation sterilization method using atmospheric pressure low-temperature plasma

"Plasma" is an aggregate of "radicals (active species) electrons (electrons) ions (ionizers) and photons (lights)". In recent years, various methods for generating low-temperature plasma under atmospheric pressure have been developed. The "low temperature plasma sterilization method" that applies the above not only instantaneously decomposes "viruses, bacteria, pollen, harmful substances, odors" due to its high reactivity, but also "low power consumption, low cost, safety, environment" Due to its "gentle" characteristics, it is being developed worldwide as an alternative technology to existing sterilization and deodorization methods. It can remove from disease-primary substances to environmentally destructive substances at the world's fastest decomposition speed of 1 μs (microsecond = one millionth of a second).

PLASMA Filter

Ultra-fine dust, pollen, viruses, etc. contained in the air sucked into the high-voltage large-area plasma discharge reactor are struck by lightning more than 6000 times per second in the high-voltage plasma discharge layer and die. It will be destroyed.

AQRSS(Air Quality and Risk Surveillance System)

People breathe 14,000 liters of air every day. We also take about 2 liters of water orally. Water is supplied as social infrastructure through a process of strict water quality inspection and sterilization. So what about "air"? While taking in about 7,000 times as much air as water into the human body every day, its "quality" is not inspected or sterilized except in specific places. Air pollution was once taken up as a social issue. Although the efforts of the public and private sectors have greatly improved, there are still various substances around us that are invisible and harmful to the human body. By capturing and analyzing these harmful substances in the air and presenting them as unique indicators, we will provide new guidelines for improving the air environment. AQRSS (Air Quality and Risk Surveillance System) is an information infrastructure for realizing a "clean air environment" that is indispensable for people's healthy lives.
