BETHESDA, MD / ACCESSWIRE / July 27, 2021 / Alset EHome International Inc. (NASDAQ:AEI) ("AEI" the "Group" or "Company"), a diversified holding company principally engaged through its subsidiaries in the development of EHome communities and other property development, financial services, digital transformation technologies, biohealth activities and consumer products, is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a Sales of Goods Agreement with Puradigm LLC ("Puradigm") to secure innovative and patented air and surface purification solutions that will be incorporated into its eco-friendly single-family home ("EHomes") communities.
- Puradigm's patented purification technology produces Non-Thermal Plasma ("NTP") particles which have been shown to be effective against a wide variety of pathogens including SARS-CoV-2
- Puradigm's products will be incorporated into the Group's pipeline of Alset EHomes to dramatically minimise the risk of pathogenic infections and ensure improved standards of health and wellness.
Driven by a focus on health and wellness for humanity, Puradigm is a manufacturer of proactive air and surface purification solutions that have proven to be safe, scalable and provide 24/7 protection for any indoor environment. Puradigm's innovative and patented purifier technologies are the most validated in the market and have been shown to be effective against a wide variety of pathogens which include SARS-CoV-2 and variants, H1N1, E. coli, MRSA, Listeria, C. difficile, staph and others.
Deviating from existing disinfection technologies currently available such as chemical cleaning, UV light and vaporised hydrogen peroxide, Puradigm's unique and patented purifier technology produces NTP particles in very large quantities to actively purify both air and surfaces quickly and safely. These highly energised plasma molecules kill bacteria and viruses by piercing their cell walls, similar to a pin pricking a balloon. More importantly, Puradigm's purifiers can also be activated while people are present, with no downtime periods, chemical handling procedures, harmful residues, room clearance protocols, manpower requirements or any known adverse side effects.
A recent study conducted by the University of Florida ("UF") confirmed the efficacy of Puradigm in inactivating SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Researchers at UF's Department of Medicine found that Puradigm's proactive air and surface purification technology inactivates 73.33% of SARS-CoV-2 on stainless steel surfaces within only 15 minutes of exposure to the technology, 93.3% after 60 minutes, and 97.7% after four hours. After 24 hours of exposure, the study showed that SARS-CoV-2 was undetectable.
These results are consistent with those of an independent study done by the Central Michigan University and Insight Research Institute which tested the technology's effectiveness on S. aureus, C. difficile and Dengue virus type 2 (DenV-2) which were used as a surrogate for SARS-CoV-2. Their results showed that Puradigm's technology caused more than a 99% average reduction in bacterial growth and a 98.5% average reduction in viral infectivity. These findings were published in the March 2021 edition of Infectious Disease Reports, an international, open access peer-reviewed journal that publishes scientific papers about infectious diseases.

"We have over the years built up an eco-system of assets and capabilities based around sustainable living to support the establishment of our Alset EHome communities, a first-of-its-kind integrated clean ecosystem that encompasses housing, transport and energy," commented the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Heng Fai Chan. "As we begin to harness Puradigm's patented NTP purifier solutions, we are confident that we will be able to dramatically minimise the risk of pathogenic infections and ensure improved standards of health and wellness for our Alset EHome communities and their residents."
The Group's two flagship developments are Alset at Black Oak, situated in Magnolia, Texas, north of Houston, and Ballenger Run, situated in Frederick County, Maryland. Together with partners, including NVR, Inc. and Rausch Coleman Homes, over 750 homes have already been delivered at these two projects. Future phases of Alset at Black Oak are in development with over 600 additional homes planned. Alset EHome is targeting to deliver 100 Ehomes in the Houston area in 2021.
