Air & Surface Sterilization

AgriFORCE RCS is commercializing new proprietary hydroxyl generating devices within the controlled environment agriculture (CEA) and food manufacturing industries. Our patent-pending system seeks out and destroys both airborne and surface-based mold, bacteria, virus, odorous and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), as well as other pathogens and pollutants safely and effectively in real-time.

Hydroxyls (° OH or HO °) are a unique atmospheric Hydroxyl Radical created by the reaction of ultraviolet light with H2O and O3 (ozone). They are highly active chemical species that participate as intermediates in reactions. Hydroxyls can break apart almost any molecule from water vapor to VOCs and everything in between. They are nature’s proven and healthy way to decontaminate air and surfaces.

Keeping enclosed spaces free of contamination is critical for indoor growing environments and food manufacturing plants. Pathogens enter facilities in a number of ways, including the people working inside them. Closed loop heating and ventilation (HVAC) systems for air conditioning increase the spread of pathogens, which can remain airborne for hours, or in some cases days. It is even more challenging in greenhouses and food processing plants, as these facilities are warm and humid and can create a breeding ground for contaminants. There can also be elevated concentrations of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) in indoor spaces. 

AgriFORCE RCS hydroxyl technology is dispersed throughout the environment in which it operates, thereby sanitizing all surfaces, materials, equipment and the air itself. It does so through a natural, chemical-free process that is 100% harmless to people and plants, helping companies not only improve their bottom line but also better protect the safety of their employees and consumers.

Hydroxyls are the only solution that eliminates Viruses, Bacteria, Mold and VOCs virtually everywhere.

Safely Removes all Mold and Pathogens

  • RCS reports 99.999% of tested pathogens neutralized, backed by over 20 years of third-party validated laboratory and field testing
  • Bacteria, viruses and mold are neutralized by the action of hydroxyls (and UV light)
  • Hydroxyls are natural and all around us and are safe to humans, animals and plants

Neutralizes Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

  • Hydroxyls ultimately decompose them into harmless small natural (gaseous) molecules such as CO2, H2, N2, O2, or HsO
  • Neutralize toxic inorganic gasses

The AgriFORCE RCS Engineered Solutions work in Greenhouses, Manufacturing Plants, Offices and Food Storage, and can be deployed in transportation along the supply chain. We offer a customized system for facilities to meet the form, fit and function necessary for the manufacturing space – from built-in units that fit your air handling systems to stand-alone units wherever needed. 


The AgriFORCE RCS hydroxyl generators are designed for use in greenhouses, food manufacturing, warehousing and transportation. The FDA considers atmospheric hydroxyl generation devices safe based on their prevalence in nature, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) confirms there is no hard science or research indicating that hydroxyl radical generation is harmful to humans, whether atmospheric and man-made generation.

Compared to other solutions such as UVGI, Hepa, PCO and Oxone systems, AgriFORCE RCS Hydroxyl Generators show the best combination of effectiveness and safety.
