Team Receives European Patent for Apparatus and Method for Oxidizing Organic Materials

July 2005
Congratulations to ETD's Garry Bryan and John Geeting and others for their recent European patent award (#5,707,508). This invention is a method and apparatus using catalyzed electrochemical oxidation to oxidize organic materials. There is a continuous need for a disposal method of organic materials that is safe for both the environment and the personnel handling the organic materials. Conventional disposal methods, such as incineration, often create additional waste and may be hazardous to the environment. Again, congratulations team!
