Tomi and Arkema To Develop Fogging Technology in Food Safety


TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc.® (”TOMI”) (OTCQX:TOMZ), a global company that specializes in disinfection and decontamination essentials using its premier Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) platform through the manufacturing, licensing, servicing, and selling of its SteraMist™ brand of products, a hydrogen peroxide-based mist and fog, has entered into an exclusive global co-marketing and supply agreement with Arkema Inc.

Arkema Inc. is a global leader in the hydrogen peroxide industry. The agreement provides that the parties will develop the market for TOMI’s Fogging Technology using the TOMI SteraMist Technology for food safety applications.

Arkema Inc. will manufacture and supply the food grade hydrogen peroxide for use in an EPA-registered solution. Together, the companies will address the need in the industry for a non-bleach, quick and effective food safety process and bring it to Arkema’s global food clients who currently use its hydrogen peroxide for organic-certified products.

Dr. Halden Shane, TOMI’s CEO, shared, ”TOMI is excited to partner with Arkema to deliver an organic certified food processing product that can be used globally to address food safety.

In addition, the partnership will allow TOMI to continue to bring its technology to new global markets. The expertise of Arkema to produce a food grade hydrogen peroxide solution will enable TOMI to address the food markets’ ever growing need for a quick efficient broad disinfection which does not injure seeds, sprouts or the mature plants.

Arkema’s hydrogen peroxide clients that are looking for a new, quicker, less caustic food sanitation method will benefit from the technology TOMI possesses, ultimately completing a faster, less caustic and more efficient sanitation and disinfection method for food, food packaging and food processing equipment.” Linda Myrick, general manager, Oxygenes & Derivatives at Arkema Inc., commented, ”Arkema is excited to partner with TOMI to bring an emerging technology to the global food safety industry. We are proud to be involved in the development of TOMI SteraMist Technology, which improves the speed and effectiveness of sanitization and disinfection solutions.
