Architect and entrepreneur Liza Morales, chief executive officer of Philippines GeoGreen Inc., the country’s leading provider of environment-friendly products, is always looking for ways and opportunities to promote a safer, healthier, and cleaner world.
Morales recently formed GeoClean, a business arm of Philippine GeoGreen Inc. that provides smart solutions to businesses and households to allow them to cope with COVID-19 pandemic and other infectious diseases that undermine productivity and the broader economy.
“The mission of GeoClean is to provide cutting-edge technology for the new normal,” said Morales, an architect by profession. “GeoClean aims to provide high-class disinfection technology that offers Filipinos innovative solutions that will help ease their woes as we face the pandemic as a community,” she added.
GeoClean currently offers products certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, UL Standards, and other internationally-recognized product standards such as Freshaire UVC and Big Ass Fans Clean Air technologies. These products reduce by 99.9% of SARS Cov2, the coronavirus strain that causes COVID-19.
Morales said FreshAire UVC products have disinfection capability that work well with existing heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems while Big Ass Fans have built-in mechanisms that provide ventilation, ultraviolet light, and needlepoint ionization disinfection systems.
“We have an exciting array of products in the pipeline, extremely diverse, yet complementary to each other. One thing they do have in common is that these products will help with achieving our company’s vision of making everyone feel much safer,” Morales said.
The COVID-19 pandemic has already claimed over six thousands of Filipino lives, infected nearly 400,000, disrupted many businesses, and caused millions of job losses. The health crisis nudged the Philippine economy into recession in the second quarter as the government imposed strict community quarantine to control the spread of the infectious disease.
As the government gradually reopens the economy, Morales said smart and cost-effective solutions offered by GeoClean offer a distinct advantage for businesses.
Like products sold by Philippine GeoGreen Inc., disinfection systems offered by GeoClean for hotels, homes, sports complexes, shopping malls, restaurants, offices, industrial facilities and others pay for themselves in as short as one year as they reduce the cost of maintaining air conditioning systems and bring down energy cost due to improved efficiency.
Morales said the potential market in the Philippines for GeoClean, especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic and after, is enormous.
“There are roughly 54 million square meters of shopping mall, office, sports complex, hotel and resort spaces which are verticals that would benefit from the disinfection technologies we offer,” Morales said.
These office and commercial spaces represent jobs that could fire up the Philippine economy that the World Bank now expects will contract 6.9% from last year, worse than the 5.5% projected by the government.
