Is JIMCO’s technology environmentally friendly?
Yes, all JIMCO products are environmentally friendly, Over the years, JIMCO A/S has been awarded a number of prizes for its products – including the EU’s environmental award, the environmental award of the Region of Funen “Fyns Amts Miljøpris” which are really good proofs for company's environmentally friendliness.
Does JIMCO’s technology use chemicals?
NO - The JIMCO technology has won EU’s environmental Award for Cleaner Technology. The environmentally friendly solutions from JIMCO are chemical-free and re-creates a natural process called photolytic oxidation.
Why is surface disinfection with the JIMCO FLO-D technology safer than using chemical disinfection?
JIMCO’s FLO-D Technology is based on UV-C produced Ozone, which is the natures own way to disinfect biofilm, mold, fungus etc. The combination of UV-C and Ozone leaves no harmful residues and does not make any corrosions on the process equipment and the surroundings.
The fact that Ozone is a perfect trouble-shooter for killing all organic materials including humans, means that ozone needs to be used carefully. The safety of the equipment is the highest priority for JIMCO and has a lot of features included that nothing will result in any harm for humans. Furthermore “Ozone” means smell in Greek, so no matter what, you will always register an ozone treatment and leave the room.
The fact that the normal chemical disinfection with for example Chlorine and Peroxid is way more dangerous for humans and the surroundings. It is well-known that these chemicals are carcinogenic and do not give any good for humans. Besides, normal disinfection routines still include these chemicals and some employee should spray chemicals everywhere in the processing area. With JIMCO’s technology, there will be no manpower included in that process, so no humans will be affected.
Can JIMCO FLO-D technology for surface disinfection remove Listeria, salmonella and similar bacterias?
Yes JIMCO has great experiences with killing Listeria.
Listeria is one f the most resistant and strongest bacterias when it can be defeated by JIMCO technology, other similar bacterias would be definitely defeated.

Can JIMCO’s technology eliminate mould, fungi, bacteria and yeast?
YES – JIMCO’s technology is thoroughly tested and even the smallest unit will eliminate mold, fungi, bacteria, viruses and yeast.
Can JIMCO extend the life of food and vegetable?
Yes, JIMCO can extend the life of fruit and vegetables by reducing ethylene gasses substantially. Ethylene is produced from essentially all parts of higher plants, including leaves, stems, roots, flowers, fruits, tubers, and seeds. Ethylene is speeding up the ripening process and, in the end, it will make fruit and vegetable rotten faster.
The JIMCO technology can also reduce bacteria, fungi, mold, and yeast.
Is JIMCO technology capable of reducing ethylene gases? Why it’s a good idea to reduce the ethylene?
Yes, JIMCO A/S has conducted a test with a recognized, certified, third-party institute in Denmark. We have tested the reduction of ethylene gasses using the JIMCO air purifier MAC500.
The test concludes that our technology will reduce ethylene gasses substantially. This can be used to extend the life of fruit and vegetables. Ethylene is produced from essentially all parts of higher plants, including leaves, stems, roots, flowers, fruits, tubers, and seeds. Ethylene is speeding up the ripening process and, in the end, it will make fruit and vegetable rotten faster.
Is UV-C light dangerous to humans?
Yes, direct exposure to UV-C light is dangerous, it can cause rapid sunburn and skin cancer. Exposure of the eyes to this UV radiation can produce extremely painful inflammation of the cornea and temporary or permanent vision impairment, up to and including blindness in some cases.
It’s so important that UV-C light is shielded and protected by special equipment, and that's exactly what Jimco does with all the systems using UV-C light. Safety is the highest priority for JIMCO.
Is ozone dangerous to humans?
Ozone could be dangerous, but it is safe when used properly. There is no reason to fear ozone. Low levels of ozone are all around us and are safe to breathe.Overly high ozone exposure in an occupied room is not recommended. We use the right amount of ozone in our systems.It is very important for JIMCO to control over the ozone level since we care a lot about people’s health and safety.
