Local company innovating new tech to stop the spread of germs on planes

Many airlines say they are stepping up and taking action to clean planes to prevent the spread of the coronavirus on aircraft amid the ongoing emergency.

Braintree-based EarthSafe is helping them get the job done thoroughly and even faster with their fogging machines.

“We started about four and a half years ago as an infection control company hospitals, nursing homes, daycare centers,” CEO Richard J. Valentine said.

Logan Airport has been a customer of the infection prevention company for some time but, airlines like Delta and American Airlines are jumping on board now too.
