Snow Gun Used to Blast Italian Towns With Disinfectant

A company that normally works to ensure the best possible conditions for skiers has been working with local authorities in the north of Italy to disinfect public spaces using a specially adapted snow gun.

Footage shared by snowmaking company Demaclenko on April 23 shows the adapted device mounted on a truck and blasting disinfectant – diluted hydrogen peroxide – onto the streets of the Tyrolean town of Val Gardena.

According to Demaclenko, the mobile solution was made available free of charge to South Tyrolean municipalities. Credit: Demaclenko via Storyful
