A ‘game-changing’ chemical that could be pumped into schools, theatres and restaurants to remove coronavirus should be urgently trialled, Andrew Lloyd Webber said yesterday.
The theatre impresario revealed that his team has spent months lobbying ministers to investigate whether triethylene glycol (TEG) could be used to help open up indoor venues.
Lord Lloyd Webber, 72, said he contacted No 10 about TEG last year after learning that tests had been successfully carried out at a Broadway theatre.
Manufacturers of the chemical, which is found in ‘fogging’ used to sanitise theatres and concerts as well as a range of domestic products, claim it can ‘clean the air’ when continually sprayed in indoor areas.
