A Universal AntidoteLast fall two of the Big Three U.S. automakers concluded arrangements with Alcide Corporation for distribution of Alcide's patented Ren New Air Conditioning Disinfectant. Special properties of Alcide formulation enable it to destroy mold and fungus as well as bacteria and viruses with minimal harm to humans, animals and/or plants. This allows use of the product to disinfect and deodorize auto air conditioners without removing them and without any lingering toxicity. Disinfectant/deodorizer is one of a wide range of Alcide formulations engineered for a variety of purposes, spanning automotive, medical, agricultural, pharmaceutical and consumer markets. Alcide is not strictly speaking a spinoff from aerospace technology, but the products and company that makes them are beneficiaries of assistance provided by NERAC, Inc.
