Wally commented on Wally Slone VP Global Efficiency Program

I have completed a proof of concept with the Sterilis machine (sterilizes and grinds regulated medical). We have 2 machines in one location and 3 in another. The machines are performing very well. In parallel, I have an 6-9 month engagement with the University UMASS Lowell. At this point in the study (only 2 months into the study) I have a 80-90% confidence level that we can make other products from the waste. What information should I post. As you can see I am really far down the journey.

Hello Lauren, yes I can take some pictures and post them in my submission. I am currently working with the University UMASS Lowell in Massachusetts on the recyclability of the post sterilized and ground up medical waste. This coming Monday we have a meeting to review the progress of our initiative. I am very excited! Stay tuned more to come!

The Sterilis machine can process any type of plastic. A Dialyzer is made from polycarbonate, polyurethane, polysofone and silicone. The bloodlines are made up of many plastics as well like PVC and ABS. The machine is also used to sterilize and grind syringes with the needle attached. Another application it is being used for is sterilizing and grinding glass slides. I hope I answered your question. Here is the link to the Sterilis website: http://www.sterilismedical.com/
