MODESTO, CA - Enviro Tech Chemical Services Inc. today announced in a press release that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a Notice of Allowance for US Patent Application 13/199,029 entitled “Methods of Using Peracetic Acid to Treat Poultry in a Chill Tank to Increase Weight.”  This patent pending method is currently applied in nearly all poultry processing plants with water-based chiller systems in the United States.  The method will cover the use of peracetic acid (PAA) containing water along with an alkaline source in poultry chiller system applications.  This novel method has been shown in scientific studies and in poultry processing plants to increase and maintain poultry yields following its use in poultry chill tanks.  The above patent Notice of Allowance resulted from a lengthy examination by the USPTO and a vigorous review of the prior art.  

From Michael Harvey, Enviro Tech President & CEO, “This new patent notice of allowance is another important step in solidifying our intellectual property.  Enviro Tech will be licensing producers and distributors alike, so that there is no disruption in operations. Enviro Tech has an unparalleled reputation of providing the highest quality and most stable PAA in the market and we are pleased to soon service a larger portion of the poultry industry.”  The above patent application was filed with the USPTO on August 16, 2011 and published on September 27, 2012.  This is the only proven antimicrobial processing aid method that has been shown to yield a positive return on investment for poultry producers in the United States.
