The authority in chlorine dioxide technologies

Utilizing a patented water-activated pouch technology, ProKure has revolutionized the world of chlorine dioxide (ClO2). Now, cultivation and restoration professionals can safely and cost effectively produce any quantity of ClO2 on-site in both gas and liquid forms. ProKure is the innovation in ClO2 delivery.

The History of ClO2

1814


Sir Humphrey Davy, a British chemist, discovers chlorine dioxide (ClO2), a result of potassium chlorate reacting with sulfuric acid. ClO2 will prove to be a chemical powerhouse.

1930s


Use of ClO2 begins to grow. A major benefit of ClO2 is that, as a true gas, it expands uniformly to fill the space. However, due to concerns about the logistics of safely transporting the gas, industries wishing to use it decide to simply make it themselves in large quantities and activate it on site.

1944


To mitigate taste and odor problems, ClO2 is introduced into a water treatment plant at Niagara Falls, N.Y. Other municipalities soon do the same. The water not only tastes better and has no unpleasant odor - it's also safer to drink.

1950s


Brussels, Belgium, changes from chlorine to ClO2 for drinking water in 1956. The 1950s see widespread use of ClO2 in water treatment plants and swimming pools in the U.S.

1967


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registers an aqueous form of ClO2 for use as a sanitizer and disinfectant.

1970s to
early 1980s


The EPA begins recommending using ClO2 instead of chlorine bleach to treat water because ClO2 does not produce any harmful byproducts such as THMs (trihalomethanes). THMs have been linked to cancer.

1988


The EPA registers ClO2 as a sterilizer.

2001


ClO2 is heavily used in the anthrax outbreaks.

2005


ClO2 is deployed in homes damaged by the flood waters from Hurricane Katrina.

2013


ProKure revolutionizes the way ClO2 is deployed. For the first time, because of ProKure's patented pouch technology, ClO2 can be created at any time, and anywhere there's water. With ProKure, ClO2 can now be safely transported in dry pouches and made in liquid or gas forms on site.

2014


ClO2 meets the Center for Disease Control’s criteria for use against the Ebola virus.
