ATLANTA, Ga., March 27, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, has name Red Bag Solutions as one of its Top 10 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia.
The coveted Top 10 Innovative Technology Company Awards recognize Georgia-based companies for their innovation, financial impact and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia’s technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and beyond. Each Top 10 company presented their innovation on-stage during the 2012 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 28, 2012, at Cobb Galleria Centre.
“Red Bag Solutions’ technology is not only changing the medical waste disposal industry, the company is also putting Georgia on the map as a state where technology innovation can thrive,” said Tino Mantella, president and CEO of TAG. “We applaud each of these companies for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community and look forward to showcasing them at our annual Georgia Technology Summit.”
Red Bag Solutions (www.redbagozone.com) offers patented technology and equipment for the on-site processing of regulated medical waste. Since 1990 Red Bag Solutions has offered Steam Sterilization and Maceration (SSM) for safe, community friendly on-site processing of bio-hazardous waste. In 2011, Red Bag Solutions released its new Ozone Sterilization and Maceration (OSM) technology, a groundbreaking innovation for which it is being recognized as TAG Top 10 Company. Ozone sterilization and maceration is more environmentally friendly and less costly than comparable bio-hazardous waste management alternatives and represents a giant leap forward in sustainable bio-hazardous waste management.
“The competition for Top 10 recognition was particularly fierce this year,” said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “The Top 10 demonstrate the depth and breadth of Georgia’s technology community. We are pleased to recognize this group of companies and believe that the community will be just as impressed as we are by their innovation and impact on Georgia’s technology industry.”
The Georgia Technology Summit is TAG’s flagship event that brings together C-level executives, entrepreneurs, technology professionals and academia to celebrate and recognize Georgia’s technology community. This year’s theme, Innovation: The Path to a Bright Future, builds upon TAG’s public awareness campaign to promote Georgia’s technology industry through an emphasis on the fastest-growing tech clusters in the state, including health IT, information security, financial technology, logistics and communication services.
