Meat Decontamination Technology Provisional Patent Application Filed by GTI
Gyrotron Technology Inc. (OTC:GYTI), a developer of innovative industrial technologies, announced today that it has filed a provisional patent application for its technology for the decontamination of beef carcasses and other foodstuffs. This technology has been successfully tested on the laboratory scale and independently verified. In those tests, heating the surface of meat for a small fraction of a second with a gyrotron, a very powerful source of high frequency microwaves, reduced the bacteria count on that surface by a factor of greater than 300,000, without compromising meat appearance.
The potential advantages of GYTI’s technology include:
- 1. A drastic decrease in bacteria count and therefore a significant decrease in cases of meat -borne illness in the US and worldwide;
- 2. An environmentally friendly process that would sharply reduce water consumption and eliminate the use of certain chemicals in existing decontamination processes;
- 3. Significant cost savings in the decontamination process;
- 4. Prolonged shelf life for raw meat
“We are very pleased that we have an opportunity to help address a major public health concern and at the same time provide substantial commercial benefits to the meat industry,” said Dr. Vlad Sklyar, President of GYTI. “Meat decontamination is a new and very large market opportunity for us. There are over 35 million heads of beef slaughtered annually in the US alone, and many multiples of that globally.”
