Our Amazing Technological Pedigree
ReliOx technology was invented at University of Florida originally for the United States Department of Defense (DoD).
In 2010 the DoD was searching for a way to give individual soldiers personal access to improved defenses against chemical and biological weapon attacks. The DoD decided they must give our men and women in uniform access to chlorine dioxide, the worlds most effective neutralizer of harmful chemicals. The problem is that chlorine dioxide is a gas (hard to contain) and previous methods to make it can be dangerous as they involve mixing serious chemicals. The DoD approached Dr. David Richardson at the University of Florida to see if they could come up with a solution.
Dr. David Richardson received a grant from the DoD to research using chlorine dioxide as a chemical / biological warfare countermeasure. Dr. Richardson’s research led to 6 patents for new methods of generating chlorine dioxide currently held by the University of Florida Research Foundation. ReliOx was formed in 2012 and holds worldwide license to these patents.
Today, ReliOx products are manufactured in Jacksonville, Florida. Our products are used very successfully throughout several industries.
We didn’t invent chlorine dioxide, we invented a safe way to make it, on demand, as needed without handling, mixing or diluting harsh chemicals.
