News: CSIR-Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIR-CSIO), Chandigarh, designed and developed Electrostatic Disinfection Technology.
- Electrostatic Disinfection Machine is based on the electrostatic principle.
- Use: It produces uniform and fine spray droplets of disinfectants to kill microorganisms and viruses.
- Significance: It is found to be efficient and effective in stopping the spread of coronavirus and other pathogens.
Electrostatic: It deals with the phenomena and properties of stationary or slow-moving electric charges. The electrostatic force between two charges is proportional to the product of the charges divided by the square of the distance between them.
