Franklin Avenue Baptist Church partners with CASPR Technologies to protect their congregation

Pastor Luter says that Franklin Avenue’s mission statement is simple: To spiritually impact our families, neighborhoods, city, and state by Exalting the Savior, Equipping the Saints, and Evangelizing the Sinners. On August 29, 2005, the church faced its first big disaster when Hurricane Katrina flooded the original church with nine feet of water. In December 2018, the congregation moved into a brand new 3,500 seat sanctuary with separate areas for children and youth worship services. Currently, Franklin Avenue Baptist Church is still growing in members which have left the church finding new ways to adapt to any potential future disasters.

Because of Katrina, their New Orleans services could be seen live over the internet every Sunday morning for their displaced members. This has proven useful to this day given the pandemic preventing the older generation and the immunocompromised from attending in-person service. Thanks to CASPR Technologies this will no longer be an issue. Ever evolving, FABC has recently decided to partner with CASPR Technologies and take a proactive approach against future pandemics. From Pastor Luter, “We are really excited about the investment we made to continuously clean our air and surfaces for our congregation and staff. CASPR gives us the confidence to open our doors without worry.” After COVID-19, FABC knew action to clean the air would be just as important as disinfecting surfaces. CASPR Technologies provided the perfect solutions as our products continuously disinfect the air and surfaces 24/7.

So, what does this mean for the congregation? It means opening the doors without the fear of spreading illnesses, germs, and having an overall peace of mind. Now, members won’t have to worry about chunky, big equipment taking up a bunch of space. Instead, CASPR Technologies provided a solution that is fully automated, requires little maintenance, discreet, and easily installed into the church’s HVAC system. If the air is on, CASPR is behind the scenes continuously disinfecting and protecting the church.

What changes can be expected with this partnership? Accessible education when members and guest enter the church that will show a short clip on our display screens located throughout the building on how the technology works with door clings at all main entrances of the church. These door clings will provide a QR code for members to scan to learn more about the technology.

Now, what exactly is this new technology? CASPR is an innovative “no-touch” disinfection technology that utilizes a Natural Catalytic Converter (NCC) to create gaseous Hydrogen Peroxide out of ambient air. Hydrogen Peroxide is nature’s natural disinfectant and CASPR recreates that same organic process indoors making it very effective against viruses, bacteria, mold, fungi, VOC’s and even odors. By treating and destroying pathogens at the cellular level on a continuous basis CASPR eliminates the periodical approach, human error and extra labor needed to truly disinfect our indoor environment.

Franklin Avenue Baptist Church is not exempt from facing its fair share of changes and obstacles. However, this has not dimmed the hope of the congregation and the staff. Pastor Luter, since his election, has maintained the church’s vitality. Furthermore, thanks go out to the Trustees, Finance, and Leadership Teams for their proactive thinking and diligent steps in ensuring the safety of everyone at FABC. Prioritizing investment in CASPR Technologies and ensuring the safety of the community remains a top focus, made achievable through the generous support of faithful donors.

11 Series Energy, Inc. and CASPR Technologies Announce Strategic Partnership to Advance Indoor Air Quality for the US Military

MANDEVILLE, La. – 11 Series Energy, a leading innovator in energy & security solutions, and CASPR Technologies, a pioneer in advanced air and surface purification technologies, are thrilled to announce their strategic partnership aimed at revolutionizing sustainable energy and indoor environmental solutions for the US Military.

This groundbreaking collaboration brings together 11 Series Energy’s expertise in sustainable energy performance contracting & energy technologies, with CASPR’s cutting-edge air purification systems, creating a synergy that promises to redefine the way we address indoor environmental challenges in the 21st century. Service members are three times more likely to catch an acute respiratory illness than the common civilian. Viruses and infections like Coronaviruses, Rhinovirus, Influenza A & B, and Streptococcus are the main reason for service member hospitalization, even over kinetic incidents in wartime theater. In addition, moldy environments like barracks can cause difficulty breathing, wheezing, itchy eyes & nose, and coughing, amongst long-term effects for those who are immunocompromised.

With air quality & mold concerns becoming increasingly urgent issues for our service members, the partnership between 11 Series Energy and CASPR represents a significant step towards a more sustainable and healthier future for our Nation’s warfighters and their families in any indoor environment.

Key objectives of the partnership include:

  1. Integrated Solutions: The companies will work together to develop integrated solutions for the Military with advanced air purification systems. This innovative approach will help improve indoor air quality for use in all barracks, military vehicles, DoD medical facilities, and any indoor environment under the Military’s command.
  2. Environmental Impact: By harnessing 11 Series Energy’s expertise in renewable energy, the partnership aims to accelerate the adoption of clean energy sources, ultimately reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change.
  3. Health and Wellbeing: CASPR Technologies state-of-the-art air purification technology will be applied not only to industrial and commercial settings in the Military but also to residential environments, ensuring that service members and their families everywhere can breathe cleaner, healthier air.
  4. Research and Development: The partnership will invest in research and development to create new, cutting-edge solutions that address emerging environmental challenges, setting the standard for sustainable technologies in the future.

“We are excited to join forces with CASPR Technologies in our shared mission to create a more sustainable and healthier world for our service members,” said Mack Sasser, CEO of 11 Series Energy. “By combining our strengths in energy & security with CASPR’s expertise in air purification, we are confident that together, we can make a significant positive impact on our indoor environments and people’s lives.”

CASPR Technologies CEO, Nick Licata, echoed these sentiments, stating, “It’s a simple task for us to show our support for Mack and acknowledge his high combat-tempo Infantry deployments to both Iraq and Afghanistan. We believe that by working together, we can drive innovation, improve air quality, and promote a more sustainable future for generations to come.”

Meriwether County School System Installs CASPR Technology to Disinfect Air and Surfaces in District Schools

GREENVILLE, Ga. – The Meriwether County School System in Georgia is gearing up for the new school year by making disinfection a priority for students and staff. This summer, the county has installed multiple disinfection systems from CASPR Technologies in schools across the district in an effort to better disinfect classroom air and surfaces and reduce pathogens, mold and viruses including influenza and SARS-CoV-2.

Working with CASPR distributor BioShark, the district installed a mixture of CASPR (Continuous Air & Surface Pathogen Reduction) units in all school, athletic and administrative facilities.

“Back in 2021, we installed CASPR Transit units on our entire bus fleet, and their technology won us over with the ability to continuously disinfect our buses and keep students and drivers safe,” said Dr. Robert Griffin, Superintendent of Meriwether County Schools, “So as a natural next step, we wanted to deploy the technology in our schools ahead of the upcoming academic year so we can add another layer of protection while also maximizing attendance.”

The technology features CASPR’s proprietary NCC™ technology, which converts humidity in ambient air into safe levels of gaseous, residue-free hydrogen peroxide molecules that are continuously spread throughout a target area, eliminating up to 99.96% of viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens in the air and on surfaces.

“With the CASPR Transit units, we have seen a reduction in bus driver absenteeism,” said Mickie Samper, Director of Transportation for Meriwether County School System. “In addition, we had a driver comment it was the first time in 30 years of driving a school bus that she didn’t have a bus full of sick kids, and a year when she herself didn’t get sick.”

The mix of CASPR products used in Meriwether County Schools includes CASPR Blu Tile units that seamlessly replace ceiling tiles; the duct-mounted CASPR Pro units, disinfecting wide areas through a building’s HVAC system; and CASPR Compact units for smaller spaces. Meriwether Schools also purchased replacement cells to keep the schools protected for eight years.

While prepping for the upcoming school year, Rebekah Cook, a teacher at Unity Elementary School commented that she could already tell a difference with the new technology. “I have asthma and breathing isn’t always easy. Since the installation of the air filtration system, I can breathe! My chest doesn’t feel heavy and I have not had to use my rescue inhaler while setting up my classroom for the new school year. The entire school feels cleaner and smells fresher. I can’t wait to see how this filtration system helps our students and see the positive impact it has on attendance!”

“CASPR’s technology and products have been proven safe and effective against some of today’s most virulent pathogens,” said Shannon Grube, Principle of BioShark. “As a distributor of CASPR to K-12 schools, we believe this technology is a game-changer for protecting students and staff and helping to improve absenteeism.”

“The beautiful part about our technology is that it continuously and safely disinfects, even while students and staff are present,” said Nick Licata, CEO of CASPR Technologies. “Other chemical-based disinfecting methods could only be applied periodically and without people in the room. Our safe, low-maintenance, disruption-free technology offers a more advanced solution.”

Air Quality in Healthcare Facilities: Protecting Patients and Health Care Workers

Air Quality in Health Care Facilities: Protecting Patients and Health Care Workers

By Dr. Margaret Scarlett

After more than three years, SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is not the prevailing health concern of Americans. On May 11, 2023, at 11:59 pm, the Public Emergency due to COVID-19 is officially over. (1) What have we learned in these three years? Can’t we just go back to the way it was before the epidemic began in 2020? The answer is NO.

We must go forward. There is no going back. We have learned a lot about respiratory infections in this time period. We have learned enough to provide better respiratory protection for both patients and healthcare workers in healthcare facilities. In the healthcare setting, we learned that bloodborne pathogen standards are necessary, but insufficient, to protect both patients and healthcare workers. We learned that more must be done.

The grim statistics let us know the problems. By April 2023, more than 1.6 million Americans have died due to COVID-19, pneumonia, and influenza since the start of the epidemic. (2) All of these are respiratory diseases. The toll among healthcare workers has been high as well, with increased risks of exposure, and higher deaths than the general
population. (3)

There are numerous guidelines, including droplet guidelines, just not airborne transmission guidance…YET. But there will be. Are you ready? While OSHA has yet to release a standard, increased vigilance in infection control is one significant outcome of COVID-19. Early indicators are that OSHA is likely to include air quality in healthcare facilities. We have learned that enclosed spaces carry a higher risk for the acquisition of respiratory infections. Meanwhile, the Association of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) released an updated position paper on infectious aerosols in October 2022. We are trying to catch up.

Numerous organizations are addressing this issue, including the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine. Enclosed spaces in health care settings, and also in transportation, public buildings, and meatpacking industries are being considered.

Droplet transmission guidelines are not enough, we have learned. Aerosol transmission is a concern. For healthcare settings, one nosocomial infection outbreak reported was among six healthcare workers, three of whom did not have direct contact with a child or his mother. No aerosol-generating procedures were performed, and the child was asymptomatic. The child did not cough, sneeze, cry or talk. Yet, the healthcare workers were infected even though more than six feet away from the source of the infected child patient.

All six wore surgical masks and most were at a distance of 6 feet or more without any direct contact. Three did not contact any shared equipment or surfaces. (4) What happened? We have learned that air contains an infective virus, and when the viral load is enough to accessible tissues like the nasal membranes, aerosols can transmit this respiratory disease, COVID-19, from a distance. Droplet or contact transmission just cannot explain this away. Air quality is important.
