Saco innovation center is ready for market test of virus-fighting UV sanitation machine

The developers of an ultraviolet light sanitizing machine, designed to kill surface contaminants like the coronavirus, have built six of the machines and are seeking test markets.

The sanitizer uses a conveyor belt to move objects through a housing equipped with ultraviolet light to combat viral surface contaminants.

The development and testing of the equipment is being conducted at the Saco Industrial Innovation Center at 10 Mill Brook Road in Saco.

The center was founded by Kevin Roche, who is part of the machine’s development team. Roche is also a principal of BBK Investments, which is investing in the project. Read more
