The New Year is upon us and it is the time to make some changes in our lives and help make the world a better place. With that said, ScanTech Sciences (STS) started off 2010 with a press conference by Texas Governor Rick Perry at the campus of The University of Texas Pan American in south Texas. Gov. Perry formally presented a multi-million dollar award that spun our food electronic cold-pasteurization business off from its parent company ScanTech Holdings.
Gov. Perry did a great job talking about the technology and the problems facing the nation’s food supply. He also described the electron beam technology and how it can eliminate bugs, pathogens and extend the shelf-life of most foods. This technology will replace toxic chemicals like Methyl Bromide which are currently used on our produce. The picture shows the Governor speaking with me and STS President, Mr. Henry Sutherlin. If you look in the “News” section of the website, there is a picture of Gov. Perry and STS CEO Mr. Dolan Falconer. We were honored to receive the award and looking forward to growing the business to make the foods we eat safer and higher quality.
