Local companies continue to develop innovative products and solutions in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

One such company is Wav Global Inc. which recently introduced its Internet of Things (IoT)-based Wav Disinfect App designed to clean big facilities such as hospitals and clinics.

According to  Internet of Things (IoT)  “refers to a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.”

Carlos Hinolan, founder and CEO of Wav Global told BusinessMirror in a recent one-on-one online interview said the company came up with the IoT-based disinfectant using  ozone or O3 to kill a virus in a specific area. According to the United States-based Environmental Protection Agency, ozone “is a highly reactive gas composed of three oxygen atoms. Moreover, it is both a natural and a man-made product that occurs in the Earth’s upper atmosphere and lower atmosphere. It affects life on Earth both in positive and negative ways.”

“WAV Global’s capability has been tested by the pandemic.  By developing our IoT capabilities, the company has been able to adapt to the fast-changing business and market environment to sustain its continuing operations at these times of global crisis,” Hinolan said.

“The pandemic has forced us to make a 180-degree shift. We also have to create other divisions and retool our people,” Hinolan added.


By downloading the app, users of smartphones will be allowed to book these ozone devices for disinfection. Hinolan said the application establishes and sets the required disinfection parameters for the ozone disinfection of a particular space and turns on and off the ozone device using their mobile devices.

Hinolan said the wireless ozone machines convert oxygen or O2 available in the ambient air of the room or space being disinfected into ozone or O3. He said the ozone will last between 30 minutes to four hours before the third oxygen atom breaks apart and reverts into oxygen.

On a lower concentration level, it will typically take 30 minutes to up to two hours for ozone to break down into breathable oxygen. He also pointed out the ozonation process is safe as it does not produce any residues or by-products, such as other harmful gases, that are released along with the ozone.

Hinolan said using ozone is more advantageous compared to ultraviolet rays because it can even deactivate droplets. “Unlike gas, ozone will seep into hard areas,” he said.

Currently, Wav Global has conducted over 3,000 disinfection procedures in different hospitals and clinics in Metro Manila.

Furthermore, Hinolan emphasized the ozone machine has a powerful built-in fan that distributes the ozone equally in all corners of the room or space being disinfected. He said this ensures whole room or space disinfection, including all small cracks and corners.
