Over 50 water bottle filling stations made from antimicrobial copper can be found throughout the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta.
The filling stations were provided by Oasis Water and manufactured from EPA-registered copper alloys supplied by Hussey Copper. The dispensers will help cut down on plastic waste while also providing continuous antimicrobial protection* to those who use them. Copper alloys are also completely recyclable making this a truly sustainable and practical innovation. As an integrated manufacturer, Hussey Copper manages the entire supply chain and fabrication process and offers a wide variety of products.
*Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, antimicrobial copper surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: MRSA, VRE, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli O157:H7. Antimicrobial copper surfaces are a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices and have been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but do not necessarily prevent cross contamination or infections; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices.
