Diversey announced the acquisition of the global intellectual property rights related to Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®), a globally patented technology from Virox Technologies Inc.

AHP is a blend of commonly used ingredients that can be used as a germicide and as a cleaner. Over the past decade, Diversey and Virox have partnered to develop a number of AHP-based solutions to address healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and food-borne illnesses.

“With a mission to protect and care for people every day, infection prevention is a major focus for Diversey. Adding this intellectual property to our portfolio will enhance our ability to accelerate innovation and grow our position in infection prevention globally,” said Mark Burgess, CEO of Diversey, “It will inform our future investment decisions as we continue to apply science to protect people every day. This major acquisition reaffirms Diversey’s global commitment to achieve profitable growth through innovation and acquisition.”

Diversey will continue to license this technology to key partners where it believes the solution can be used to deliver value across other markets.
