Teck Resources and Science World today announced a partnership providing an added layer of protection for visitors and staff at Science World by utilizing CuVerro Shield™ by Aereus Technologies.
Through its Copper & Health program, Teck has made a $650,000 contribution to Science World, the fourth largest attraction in British Columbia, to outfit high-traffic areas with antimicrobial copper surfaces known as CuVerro Shield™ by Aereus Technologies. Copper has been installed on surfaces including Science World exhibits (Hang-Time, Heart Drum, and Electric Hands), front door handles and entrance countertops. The installation creates an added layer of protection for about 1 million guests who visit Science World each year given copper’s unique antimicrobial properties, proven effective to eliminate up to 99.9 per cent of harmful bacteria within two hours of contact.
