Knoxville, TN - Innovasan Alpha 20 Research Project has received a grant award from the Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC), U.S. Army Medical Research & Materiel Command (USAMRMC), Ft. Detrick, Maryland. The Alpha 20 Project is building a laboratory model of the patent pending Med-San™ Process, which will destroy biological, pharmaceutical and other organic chemical compounds found in medical waste streams for safe discharge to the environment.

"TATRC's Medical Logistics mission focus is to develop and deploy our Interceptor Waste Treatment System™ to protect warfighters from current medical waste disposal practices. The Alpha 20 Project will enable us to establish the most cost effective Med-San™ Process design configuration for the Interceptor Prototype Program and the TATRC funding will allow us to accelerate our prototype development timelines," says Ellen Hubrig, President. "Our goal, through our joint collaboration with TATRC, is to meet a military program need with a state-of-the-art technology solution that will protect our civilian populations and the environment from source point waste disposal practices responsible for biological infectives, pharmaceuticals and other chemical compounds in our watersheds and potable water distribution systems."
