TAMPA, Fla. — BBJ Environmental Technologies Inc. has announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted a registration for BBJ Microbiocide for Air Ducts, the company’s new antimicrobial product for use in air duct systems.

This product utilizes a patented micro encapsulation process pioneered by BBJ, says the company. This technology, which is used in several BBJ products, uses antimicrobial agents to prevent biological contamination (mold, mildew, and bacteria) at the source and to continue working over extended periods of time, the company says.

“This registration is the result of almost 10 years of study, research, and working with the EPA to develop testing protocols that address a critical need: managing the biological contamination in HVACR duct systems,” stated Bob Baker, chairman of the board. “The industry will now have a product that is easy to apply, economical, long lasting, and above all, non-intrusive nor a concern to building occupants.”

Baker added, “We believe that this first of its kind registration is extremely important, not only to BBJ and the growth of the company, but more importantly, to the health and comfort of people who work and live in modern buildings with highly controlled environments.”

To obtain this registration, the company noted that it submitted data on the effect of long-term exposure, indoor product concentrations following use, and what it says is the most comprehensive set of instructions ever for such a product. “BBJ’s first of its kind, approved label is so detailed that it is actually a mini air duct maintenance manual,” said Baker.
