Principles of GUV & Its Use as a Germicidal (UVG)
Presenter: Carla Bukalski, Cooper Lighting Solutions
Sponsor: IES Midwest Regional Director and District Chairs

The COVID-19 global pandemic is having an enormous impact on almost every aspect of our lives. The rapid and easy spread of this virus has created a substantial amount of interest in the germicidal properties of ultraviolet radiation and the possibility of using this spectrum to disinfect various applications.

This presentation will cover three types of ultraviolet radiation and levels of germicidal properties and capabilities. The history of the use of various lamp sources that can deliver UV will be explored as well as the risks associated with the various types.

UVC will be specifically discussed as a germicidal, how it can be used in various applications such as water and air cleaning.
This will be an accredited CEU program (1 CEU).
