Abstract Scope Masks are at extreme shortage during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many front line professionals and civilians are reusing their masks. However, with regular sterilization technologies, the electrostatic charges cannot be recovered. It ends up with filtration efficiency reduction of masks, risking human lives for unexpected exposure. This presentation will introduce a new sterilization technology which can sterilize and recharge masks simultaneously. The devices are portable and efficient with low energy consumption. The sterility assurance level (SAL) has reached lower than 10-3 vs. E.coli, which is enough for regular mask reuse. With longer treatment time, we can reach SAL of 10-6, sufficient for sterilization of surgical devices. In addition to masks, we can also sterilize surfaces to reduce the repeated use of chemical disinfectants. We will also introduce how the publics should safely use and reused masks in this presentation.
