U.S. Patent No. 10,912,321 was issued to Enviro Tech on February 9, 2021 for methods of using peracetic acid solutions at an alkaline pH to treat poultry during processing. Enviro Tech takes the intellectual property rights of itself and others seriously. As of April 15, 2021, Enviro Tech is in a federal lawsuit against Zeco, LLC d/b/a Zee Company, a service provider located in Chattanooga, Tennessee, as Zeco declined a license and instead filed suit seeking declaratory judgment that its activities do not infringe the ’321 patent. In response, Enviro Tech will be filing a responsive pleading within the required time period.
Enviro Tech is aware that many service providers have implemented processes and equipment that practice these patented methods in the poultry processing facilities they serve. Enviro Tech is currently offering licensing opportunities for its patented technology. Interested parties are invited to contact CEO Mike Harvey or President Brent Bankosky.
