Safe space technology from Canada for VfL Wolfsburg: listed company Kontrol Technologies, based in Vaughan, north of Toronto, has become a new international partner to the Green-and-Whites. This will give the Wolves access to Kontrol’s BioCloud monitoring system, which analyses the air quality in enclosed spaces in real time and detects viral and bacterial pathogens and other airborne contaminants at an early stage.
“New and important emphasis with BioCloud”
“We are pleased to have brought on board a new, innovative partner in Kontrol Technologies, who through BioCloud will play a leading role in our future plans and actions for a safe experience on the Volkswagen Arena premises,” said Michael Meeske, VfL managing director. “Particularly in this day and age, the issue of air quality in enclosed spaces is hugely important, and we’ll be able to put a new and important emphasis on this with BioCloud.”
“Look forward to showcasing its advantages”
“We are very pleased to make our entry into European professional sports, and the sport of soccer in particular, with such an accomplished partner as VfL Wolfsburg,” said Paul Ghezzi, CEO of Kontrol. “We look forward to showcasing the BioCloud system and its many advantages of monitoring training rooms and facilities for early viral detection.”
Developed for the detection of airborne viruses
BioCloud is a real-time analysis tool which has been developed for the detection of airborne viruses. BioCloud has been designed to operate as a safe space technology by sampling the air quality continuously. If viruses are recognised by a ‘detection chamber’ – which can be replaced if needed – a warning is issued. BioCloud has been developed for spaces where people gather, such as classrooms, offices, retirement homes, hospitals and public transport, and should safeguard the health of VfL Wolfsburg’s teams, fans, visitors and staff in its buildings.
