COST AND TIME SAVING
We have reduced the entire sterilization process, the batch load release time is less than 1 day, compare to 7 days, reducing your cost of on-hand inventory.
Our EtO sterilization virtually eliminates the presence of ethylene oxide in the air.
We use 50% fewer EtO in our cycle than used in the sterilization industry.
We recycle the residue of EtO in ethylene glycol which can be used to de-ice the planes or windshield washer.
Our electricity is provided from green source energy - Hydro-Québec.

SAFE AND COMPLIANT
Our process exceed the applicable international regulations.
We are looking for partnerships to expand oursterilization capacity rapidly.
For the entire sterilization process, the release time is less than 1 day, compared to 7 days. (cost and time saving)
We systematically meet the requirements of products and regulations.
We sterilize at low temperature, which guarantees the integrity of the product and the packaging.
We efficiently sterilize a wide range of polymers, resins, natural materials and metals, as well as products combining drugs and devices requiring sterilization of the surface by external contact.
The critical situation of Ethylene oxyde sterilization
Although medical devices can be sterilized by several methods, EtO has been the most common method of sterilization of medical devices. It is a well-established and scientifically proven method of preventing harmful microorganisms from reproducing and causing infections. EtO has many advantages. The process is convenient, affordable, effective and does not degrade device materials.
Ethylene oxide (EtO) is used since the 1930s whose safety has come under increasing scrutiny in recent years. At is its peak EtO was used on about 50% of healthcare products in the United States — or more than 10 billion medical products per year
In recent years, citizens and governmental agencies have grown concerned about EtO emissions from sterilization facilities and the potential health effects not only on the plant workers but also on nearby residents.
At least eight major EtO sterilization plants have now been forced to close or shutdown for noncompliance. The FDA has said- it anticipates a national shortage of these devices and other critical devices including feeding tube devices used in neonatal intensive care units, drug-eluting cardiac stents, catheters, shunts and other implantable devices.
In June 2020, the EPA focused on EtO released into the ambient air from sterilization facilities. The EPA put monitoring and reporting protocols in place via a Federal Register notice. The agency is expected to issue a final rule limiting EtO emissions from sterilization facilities in 2021.
EPA recently sent letters to 31 facilities, providing notice that EPA is considering requiring them to report to TRI for ethylene oxide (EtO) under this discretionary authority. Some of these facilities are also being considered for ethylene glycol reporting.
