Our History


The discovery of a unique and innovative chemical synergy lead to the development of what would become known as Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® or AHP®. It represented a major break-through in disinfectant technology that was not only different but “deliberately different” — and would soon prove to be a game-changer.


Virox Technologies Inc. has become an industry leader in infection prevention and control for a diverse number of market segments including: farm animal & companion animal health, professional beauty, laboratory, healthcare, dental, industrial & institutional markets, hand care, consumer products, mold remediation, and medical device disinfection and sterilization. AHP is available in more than 60 countries with over 9 patents and many more pending. With continual research & development resulting in 10 issued patents and several more pending, Virox has become a valuable partner to our licenced companies. Virox has received many business and industry awards. Some highlights include:
• EPA Safer Choice Partner of the Year Award for Innovation by the Safer Choice Design for the Environment

• Champion Status for the Safer Detergents Stewardship Award (SDSI) awarded by the EPA’s Design for the Environment (DfE)

• Canadian/American Business Council Award – Virox and its strategic partner Diversey were awarded the prestigious Business Achievement Award for their collaboration in developing and distributing a safe and environmentally friendly hydrogen peroxide-based disinfectant

• In 2013, Virox Technologies achieved LEED® Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), becoming the first chemical manufacturer capable of not just developing EcoLogo/UL and Green Seal Certified products, but manufacturing them in a LEED-certified facility
