Knoxville, TN – Innovasan’s proposal for an “Innovative Lightweight Energy and Water Efficient Treatment System for Fluid Medical Waste” has been selected by the United States Department of Defense for participation in its Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program.

The proposal is in response to a mission requirement within the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC), U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC), Ft. Detrick, MD. for a mobile treatment system capable of destroying biological, pharmaceutical and other organic compounds beyond their ability to regenerate in the environment.

SBIR is a highly competitive federal research program within the nation’s research and development arena. Innovasan’s selection is recognition that Med-San® is a leading edge technology candidate to support programs of national interest and meet the global demand for treating contaminated waste streams and water.

“SBIR provides Innovasan with critical funding to complete prototype research and development for the U.S. Army’s tactical medical waste treatment system and at the same time promotes international recognition that will allow us to pursue strategic alliances to commercialize the Army’s prototype to meet global demands for safe discharge of treated waste streams and safe recovery of contaminated water for drinking and other alternative uses,” said Jeff Hubrig, Executive Vice President of Innovasan.
