BPP-Tech are a well-established engineering SME with a long track record in innovative product development, R&D, and project management services across the energy, insurance, utilities, and transport sectors. BPP, trading as BonaCaeli, wanted to scale up their existing ‘Air-MassSanitiser’ (AMS) to develop a proof-of-concept for an Industrial Air-Sanitiser (IAS). The new product would use a combination of intense Ultraviolet-C radiation and an innovative bio-wash scrubber to limit the transmission of airborne communicable diseases, including Covid 19, and improve indoor air quality. Other AMS systems are either too small for large rooms or require areas to be unoccupied to prevent harm. BPP’s IAS simultaneously sanitises large indoor spaces and improves air quality at high efficiency and low cost.
“Granted Consultancy supported us with their full grant writing service, their expert knowledge and deep experience enabled us to develop a high quality and successful grant application. This application for an Industrial Air-Mass-Sanitiser has the potential to make an extensive positive impact and we are looking forward to the further development of this project now we have secured the funds. This innovation is based on our existing smaller scale Air-Mass-Sanitiser, the BoncaCaeli AirVSAFE Professional 1000, which is making an impact on improving safety as public venues begin to open up. The experience of working alongside the Granted Consultancy Team was a pleasure, so much so we are looking to work with them again to fund other R&D projects.” – Minoo Patel, Founder and Director at BPP-Tech trading as Bonacaeli.
