Energy Focus to Deploy UVC Disinfection Robot for NYC Conference

Muve NYC 400x275

October 18, 2021

Energy Focus has announced that its mUVe robot, an autonomous and chemical-free UVC disinfection robot, will be the official Virus-Targeted UVC Robo-Disinfector for next week’s LightFair 2021 conference and trade show, being held Oct. 25-29 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York.

The robot will disinfect surfaces throughout the Javits Center exhibit hall, moving around autonomously during conference after hours. Moving and disinfecting at a speed of 18 inches per second (or 90 feet per minute), mUVe will be pre-programmed with its advanced mapping technology to record the floor plan of the conference and use a beam of UVC-254nm light to disinfect surface pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2 and its variants, at a targeted 99.9%-plus efficacy rate within a one-meter radius. The company said mUVe will help provide an additional layer of safety measures through the autonomous surface disinfection to LightFair, in conjunction with the conference’s “Safer Floor. Safer Show.” protocols.

“We are honored and pleased to partner with both LightFair and Javits Center in their efforts to provide conference attendees extra peace of mind during the show,” said Michael Decker, vice president of marketing at Energy Focus. “This is a high-profile opportunity for us to not only help make the convention site cleaner and safer, but also to showcase mUVe’s advanced and impactful capability to disinfect large spaces with precision, speed and efficiency without the use of chemicals and sprays.”
