MOUNT VERNON, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 2, 2021 / Applied UV, Inc. (NasdaqCM:AUVI) ("Applied UV" or the "Company"), an infection control technology company that applies the power of narrow-range ultraviolet light ("UVC") for surface areas and catalytic bioconversion technology for air purification to destroy pathogens safely, thoroughly, and automatically, today announced that it was chosen to supply the Airocide™ System of air purification technology for the 28th Grand International Wine Award "MUNDUS VINI" 2021. Airocide® is a leader in both the US and EU wine industry for its ability to protect stored and perishable aging wines from mold and other fungi and bacteria. The opportunity to deploy Airocide® Systems at the "MUNDUS VINI" event to protect participants from harmful pathogens in the air was a natural extension of its recognized capabilities in the wine industry.

MUNDUS VINI Spring Tasting event is one of the one of the largest wine competitions, with more than 300 international, highly recognized wine experts from the trade, gastronomy, wine making, wine business and wine media attending and where more than 7,500 samples of wine are judged. The competition typically lasts a few days; however, with strict Pandemic regulations in place to protect the participants, the event stretched to 20 days. The installation of 50 Airocide® Systems at the event was a critical initiative undertaken by the event sponsors to provide a safer, cleaner environment for all the participants.

"The re-opening of the economy, especially for live-events held indoors that attract a large audience, is essential for many businesses", said Q Saeed, CEO of Applied UV. "We were very pleased to be named the official partner of this event; and most importantly, that the Airocide® air purification system provided the necessary level of safety for this prestigious wine event to take place while still under challenging Covid-related restrictions."
