BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc. ("TOMI" or the "Company") (OTCQB:TOMZ), a global bacteria decontamination and infectious disease control company, will make a presentation at the Global Business Roundtable 5th World Congress 2015 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 at 9:50 AM UTC+02:00. The Company's presentation is entitled "SteraMist™ BIT™ - Total Room Decontamination in Under 15 Minutes Using Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS)" which will be presented by Abiy Zegeye, Ph.D.
TOMI™ was recently granted an award in the Fighting Ebola: a Grand Challenge for Development by the U.S. Agency for International Development ("USAID"). The Company's proposal, "SteraMist™ Mobile Decontamination Chambers," is one of 15 proposals selected for award by the USAID in the global fight to eradicate Ebola and to strengthen local healthcare systems.
TOMI™ was awarded in the category "Improving the Safety of Health Care Workers" with its SteraMist™ Mobile Decontamination Chambers. This state-of-the-art, easy-to-assemble decontamination chamber can decontaminate objects and equipment to a high level of decontamination without the use of hazardous chemicals.
Dr. Halden Shane, TOMI™'s Chief Executive Officer, stated, "TOMI™ has added two additional new products to its line of international decontamination products. The Reactive oxygen species that TOMI™'s BIT technology produces has already passed our efficacy studies for the use in enclosed chambers. We are excited that TOMI™ was the recipient of the USAID grant and our presence and participation in the Roundtable at the 5th World Congress in South Africa, prior to completing the grant requirement in Western Africa, just shows the interest in and the need for TOMI™'s product line throughout the African market. As a doctor, an educator, an innovator and someone who has dedicated his professional career to making things work better and to helping people, I am ready to lead TOMI™ to become the standard in the control of infectious disease around the world."
