Project Case Studies

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” and at no time in history is that more evident than today. In this time of tightening resources and precious dollars it is imperative that short term solutions have long term – and serve as long term – applications…Enter Path-Away.

Below we offer a list of clients that have used Path-Away via fogging and surface disinfectant during normal operating hours for more than five years with no impact to human health or the environment. ALL the ingredients of Path-Away are listed on the FDA GRAS list meaning the ingredients are edible. With a diffusion particle size of 11-15 Microns Path-Away is safe and effective in Airborne, liquid, or surface applications for people, planet, and places.

We are proud to share that in the Netherlands our personal use wipes are being used in Senior Care and Assisted Living Centers to bathe the elderly residents both preventing transmission and contamination with SARS-COV-2 and other potentially deadly viral, fungal, bacterial, and mold pathogens (See Lab Data). Our successes and excellence in product and service delivery include the hospitality industry, clinic, hospital, food service, poultry, feedstock, textile, airline, cruise ship, government, and almost all industrial and commercial facilities.

Let us add your people and buildings to the growing list protected by PathAway.

Project 2 – Azim Group Textiles

The Azim Group is a multi-national holding company based in Bangladesh. They have been involved in the RMG, Ready Made Goods, and garment manufacturing sector since its inception in Bangladesh in the early 1980s. Today, Azim Group has about 20 manufacturing units in both the cities of Dhaka and Chittagong, with over 26,000 employees and serves clientele worldwide. GICC LLC was called in because of our specialized garment industry expertise in measuring, monitoring and controlling biological contaminants affecting products for shipment worldwide. A complete supply chain assessment was conducted from thread manufacture, to dying, weaving, shipment to factories for production, the factories themselves and post production shipping worldwide. Extensive testing and monitoring of shipment conditions during the ocean voyage to the final destination resulted in a specific protocol to reduce and/or eliminate the problems. One USA based client reported a yearly saving in excess of US $2.5 million on lost goods.

Project 3 – Food Lion Grocery Chain

Food Lion, based in Salisbury, N.C., since 1957, operates more than 1,100 grocery stores in 10 Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic states. When the corporate headquarters was undergoing renovation our Team was called in to identify and quantify some visible pathogen growth in different locations.

With two fully accredited acute care medical facilities with a combined capacity of 282 beds, Houston Healthcare is able to offer an array of healthcare services using advanced technology. When one of the clinics suffered extensive storm water damage our Team was called in to assess the environmental issues the storm produced. We quickly identified and quantified fungal, bacterial and viral issues through laboratory testing. A comprehensive protocol was constructed that once implemented, resulted in a fully safe, healthy and operational facility.

Project 8 – Corporate Jet

Our expertise extends to the transportation industry. With a full understanding of aviation including private as well as commercial airliners and their environmental systems we are able to measure, manage and monitor interior cabin conditions to provide safe and healthy traveling experiences. That expertise extends all the way to the passenger terminals as well.

Project 10 – Nigerian Maize Harvest Nigeria

Working closely with Shonga F.H. Nigeria LTD, our Team conducted extensive pathogen testing to identify, quantify and establish a means of crop protection and enhancement. We specified and utilized its proprietary organic, anti-pathogenic solution to combat “army worm” and “stem borer” insects posing a serious challenge to Maize production. Prior use chemical based products required multiple applications, yielded less than acceptable results and left environmental damage. Path-Away Plant Protectant® developed by our Team provided rejuvenation of already infested leaves after a single week. Overall plant performance improved substantially. With everyone in the food related industry trying to go “organic” the Path-Away® product line, which is organic, is believed to have an edge in control of insect pests, thereby increasing yield and famer profitability. Path-Away Plant Protectant® With Growth Enhancer has been recommended to Nigerian farmers because of its effectiveness, environmental safety, ease of use and its overall performance.
