Meat & Livestock Australia: Cow Tattoo

Sydney, Australia

The industry has been trying to solve the dark cutting meat problem by treating the meat, using blooming agents and dyes, but it continues to be a huge value detractor for the industry.  Our exploration identified the underlying problem of animal stress as the opportunity for real improvement.  We invented and prototyped physiologically responsive tattoos to provide a visual cue of different health monitors especially of importance for production animals.

Fortune 50 Food and Beverage Company: Non-thermal Pasteurization

New York, NY

UV is a viable approach for reducing microbial load, however to penetrate into opaque solution, the dose is prohibitively high.  Through a combination of physics and nanotechnology approaches, we invented a UV-based system that requires much lower dose of light to deliver significant kill effect in an opaque solution such as juice. We have built this to bench scale and are currently planning scale up to pilot.

Global Good Fund/Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation: Fecal Sludge Dewatering

Seattle, WA

We invented an entirely new approach to sludge dewatering that allows for continuous, low energy, robust dewatering without the need for flocculation or any increase in the footprint of the system.  The system is simple to use and requires minimal maintenance.  We have designed a bench scale system to demonstrate proof of concept.
