New Patent Issued to Miatech for Bio Turbo Technology

11/18/2012

The U.S. Patent Office has issued a patent for Miatech's Bio Turbo line of products (patent #08293171) to confirm the unique nature of Bio Turbo technology and protect it from unauthorized copying.

The Bio Turbo line of equipment is designed to apply more affordable science to remove ethylene and airborne pathogens from cold rooms. Customer testimonials describe Bio Turbo as a highly effective technology for preventing premature ripening, prolonging storage life of fruits and vegetables, preserving postharvest quality, and preventing bacterial damage and mold growth.

Bio Turbo uses a patented four-stage air purification process that effectively removes ethylene and 99.5 percent of airborne bacteria. Although Bio Turbo technology uses ozone in one of its four stages to destroy ethylene and airborne pathogens, ozone is never released into the cold room, which makes this technology completely safe for humans.

Costas Iconomou, Miatech's CEO, said: "The new patent having now been issued is a testament to the unique design of the Bio Turbo. We now have the most effective and efficient product of its kind on the market today."
