A revolutionary sistema to completely and permanently eliminate diseases in swine farms.

The Brachyspira hyodysenteriae is the bacteria that causes one of the most contagious and worrying diseases in hogs, The Swine Dysentery.

When one farm gets infected it is very difficult to do a massive cleanout in the farm and eliminate the strain because is highly resistant to approved antibiotics and chemicals.

In many farms,  pigs arrive at the farm being negative for brachyspira, and become positive once in the farm.

Activa together with some farms in Spain, using our revolutionary system, were able to end definitively the swine dysentery and decrease close to zero the bacterial load in the farm facilities. The tests were conducted by the GSP (Group de Sanejament Porcí) an institution with a wide reputation in the livestock sector in Spain.

Our system is based on a coating on the floor and walls, developed by Active Walls that consists of a set of semiconductor minerals, which have PERMANENT antibacterial, antiviral, and odor removal properties when with the action of light. In addition, these natural minerals are harmless for humans and animals, and do not intervene in the trophic chain

Permanence is proven, as farms were tested after 137 days with the hogs in, and still negative of branchyspira and other microorganisms as (BGN Gram Negative Bacteria) Enterobacteriaceae.


Revolutionary permanent cleaning and disinfection system.

One of the most important challenges farms are currently facing, and more specifically broiler and swine farms, is the high bacterial load that accumulates in the facilities and the consequences it entails for the production and health of the farm’s animals.  That is why farms implement a biosecurity protocol to control 100% effectively all the viruses and bacteria that can be generated during the fattening cycle of the animal.

One of the central practices in these biosecurity protocols is House cleanout program, thus keeping them free of viruses and bacteria.Qlayer Solutions together with Active Walls have tested a revolutionary new cleaning and disinfection PERMANENT system in different farms such as Urgasa, Vallcomanys and Guissona where 100% satisfactory results have been achieved.

The coating developed by Active Walls and Qlayer Solutions consists of a set of semiconductor minerals, which have antibacterial, antiviral, and odor-removing PERMANENT properties when in contact with the action of natural or artificial light. In addition, these semiconductor minerals are harmless to the health of humans and animals, both in their initial state of application and when they react with light.

One of the main bacteria tested in the livestock environment has been Enterobacteria, which are the most heterogeneous group of gram-negative bacilli and are responsible for most diseases in both humans and animals.

The effectiveness of Qlayer coating with Brachyspira hyodysenteriae (the bacterium that causes swine dysentery) has even been shown to be one of the most problematic bacteria in pig farms, along with other highly resistant bacteria, such as SARS COV2. salmonella and Escherichia ecolis.

In tests carried out both in the laboratory and in situ on farms, with only 40 minutes after its application, the Qlayer coating reduced the colonies of Enterobacteriaceae and other previously mentioned bacteria, to ZERO, regardless of the surface material where applied. And the results remained 100% positive months after its application. Its bactericidal, disinfectant and odor elimination effect is PERMANENT and has important effects on productivity and cost reduction in farms.

The European Parliament calls for a stricter application of the European Air quality legislation.

The European Parliament (EP) calls for a stricter application of European air quality legislation. Likewise, that new restrictions be placed on substances that are now unregulated, but harmful to health. And, in addition, the creation of a “watch list” of those harmful substances.

The plenary session of the European Parliament has approved a report on how air quality directives are applied. The approval had 425 votes in favor, 109 against and 153 abstentions.

15 milion spaniards are breathing air the the EU considers polluted.

More than half of Spain is wreathed in air containing excessive levels of particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide and ozone.

A pedestrian in Toledo is breathing polluted air from a traffic jam in Madrid’s Gran Vía avenue. And in the Sierra Norte, outside of Madrid, hundreds of people from the capital spend their weekends thinking they are enjoying fresh air without realizing it was one of the most polluted areas in Spain last year.

Meanwhile, other rural areas such as the Plain of Vic in Catalonia and villages like Villanueva del Arzobispo in Jaén, in Andalusia, have levels of contamination that break EU air quality regulations.

These are just a few of the pollution paradoxes that are adversely affecting the health of at least 15 million people in Spain, according to EL PAÍS estimates. The most severely affected areas are Madrid and Barcelona but the regions of Andalusia, Extremadura, Castilla-La Mancha and Valencia are also battling with high-risk levels.

Pollution reduces our life expectancy by 2 years.

Studies confirm that pollution reduces our life expectancy by 2 years.

And it not only affects the respiratory system but pollution also affects cardiovascular health causing heart attacks, strokes and thrombi.

The World Heart Federation (WHF), the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC) have published a joint document urging the international community and health authorities to mitigate the impact of air pollution on people’s health.

And, according to the four organizations, around 50% of deaths caused by air pollution are due to cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attack, thrombi or heart failure.

Specifically, according to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), the dirty air we breathe is responsible for 25% of global deaths from heart disease and 24% of deaths from stroke, which is included within cardiovascular accidents .

One in five deaths is caused by air pollution

One in five deaths in the world is caused by air pollution caused by the use of fossil fuels, such as coal, gasoline or diesel.

The new research, published in the journal ‘Environmental Research’, doubles that number and concludes that 8.7 million people died in 2018 from fossil & fuels polution alone.

Normally the air we breathe “reduces” its quality and reduces our life expectancy by two years.

The main diseases caused by air pollution are not only respiratory (asthma, aging of the lung and even lung cancer), it can also cause cardiovascular accidents, increased allergies, and deficiencies in the immune system, among other diseases.

A study published in The Lancet Planetary Health certifies that the levels of pollution in Europe and specifically in Spain are worrying.

Within the Rànquing ISGlobal project that studies the impact on health of various environmental factors typical of life in the city. The study carried out by the Barcelona Institute of Global Medicine (ISGlobal) together with the Swiss Institute of Tropical and Public Health (Swiss TPH) and the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands has concluded that the pollution levels of the 969 European cities studied are worrisome and that have harmful effects on the health of its population.

If all European cities met the levels of particles below 2.5 microns (PM2.5) recommended by the World Health Organization, more than 51,000 premature deaths could be prevented each year from respiratory complications caused by environmental pollution. . And if they did the same with the presence of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in the air, more than 900 deaths would be avoided.

Madrid is the city that leads this ranking followed by Antwerp in Belgium, Turin in Italy, Paris, Barcelona and the seventh position is occupied by Mollet del Vallès, a town in the metropolitan area of ​​Barcelona with high levels of environmental pollution.

¿What can we as individuals do to solve this problem? If we apply the Activa Colors technology we will transform our home into an active decontaminating subject, thus ensuring that the air we breathe is much cleaner than the one outside. In addition to having a much cleaner home free of bacteria and viruses since our technology also eliminates pollutants from the surfaces of our home.

Farms may be focuses of Covid19 infections.

Several studies affirm that farms and livestock operations, especially those dedicated to the breeding of white mink, can be major sources of infection by COVID 19.

This has generated great concern to health authorities and those responsible for livestock farms around the country.

Through Active technology we can help combat this health emergency and help control the various sources of contagion that have appeared on various farms.

Active technology has disinfectant properties and can kill viruses and bacteria, including the COVID 19 virus.

In addition to being a disinfectant and killing viruses and bacteria, it also has other properties that represent a substantial benefit for livestock farms, such as ending bad smells that spawn some animals and clean and purify the facilities.

Photocatalytic products, a great solution to eliminate bacteria and contaminants permanently.

Photocatalytic products constitute an ecological, passive and economic system to eliminate contaminants, dirt and save maintenance and cleaning costs. From Activa Colors we make available to the population and institutions the possibility of using these products to maintain a healthier environment.

We are currently facing a global emergency motivated by the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). But despite being something really alarming, it is not a unique and isolated event in history with the ability to put us in a critical situation, since previously there have been epidemics such as Avian Flu, SARS, ZIKA, MERS or EBOLA.

Photocatalytic products are completely standard. They are water-based products, and do not contain any toxic compound in their formulation. Anyone can use them in their home exactly like other kinds of products.


These productsts are the best solution to paint in environments sensitive to people’s health, such as hospitals, schools, doctor’s offices, public and office buildings or the home, since in the absence of light they behave like high-quality paints, and in The presence of it (both natural and artificial light) are immediately activated and permanently provide the elimination of all organic and harmful compounds in the environment, viruses, bacerias as well as bad odors.

As a result, the environment is much healthier and helps to prevent the spread of infection.

The photocatalytic process

In nature itself there is a natural process called photocatalysis in which a substance, called a photocatalyst, uses the energy of light to remove harmful and polluting compounds. This process is actually a chemical oxidation reaction derived from the joint action of the photocatalyst, oxygen and light.

Products called photocatalytic incorporate certain catalytic compounds, generally titanium dioxide (TiO2), to take advantage of this feature. By means of this reaction, these products, when activated in the presence of light and coming into contact with the environment, decompose polluting organic and inorganic substances

Substances it removes

Photocatalysis is very effective, and can remove organic substances such as microbes, viruses, fungi and bacteria, and PM2.5, PM5 and PM10 fine particles. It is also capable of removing toxic substances and polluting gases such as Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Sulfur Oxides (SOx), Carbon Monoxide and Formaldehyde, Methanol, Ethanol, Benzene, Toluene, etc.

Natural process

Photocatalysis requires light energy to activate. Natural light, fluorescent, and incandescent light bulbs are, in this order, suitable for activating surfaces.

Black Light (known as UV-A or ultraviolet light) and LEDs that emit in the visible-violet range (385 – 390 nm) are optimal for perfect activation. Even a minimum power (0.01 Watt / m2) of this type of light is capable of removing up to 100% of the biological load from the treated surfaces

The elimination process occurs permanently and from the first moment, as soon as light is received.

Surfaces treated with a photocatalytic product use the energy of light to continuously produce radicals on these surfaces, such as:

Hydroxyl Radicals: also called “detergents” in the atmosphere because they react with most pollutants, decomposing them naturally by oxidation, and acting as the fundamental stage of their elimination. They also play an important role in eliminating some of the greenhouse gases.

Pyroxyl Radicals: As active as ozone, they are the precursors of hydrogen peroxide, one of the most important disinfectants, used for the destruction of bacteria, viruses and fungi in medicine and pharmacy.

Laboratory results

In laboratory tests, up to 100% reduction in ATP measurements is obtained after 40-60 minutes on correctly illuminated surfaces.

Advantages of using photocatalytic products

Firstly, they have the ability to reduce odors, precisely due to the resistance to adherence of particles or organic substances on the application surfaces of these products.

It also reduces to a minimum the presence of microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc.) by destroying the substances they feed on. Photocatalytic surfaces prevent the growth of microorganisms and do not allow the substances they feed on to accumulate. Therefore they are very effective against the aggressions of viruses, bacteria, fungi and microorganisms in general.

The results of this action are supported by the numerous measurements made in buildings and infrastructures and by the results obtained in specialized laboratories.
