About Electronic Cold-Pasteurization – Dec. 9


Chip Starnes and Dolan Falconer, Co-Founders of Scantech Sciences, to Speak to Inventor Academy December 9

Dolan Falconer and Chip Starnes from Scantech Sciences, the leading developer and operator of E-beam food treatment systems, will speak to the Jefferson Lab Internal Inventor Academy on Dec. 9 at 1 PM. Scantech’s patented Electronic Cold-PasteurizationTM (ECPTM) replaces outdated fumigation, methyl bromide and hot water treatment with a fast, consistent and green E-beam technology. ECPTM processing moves produce through the E-beam, while maintaining the cold chain, even in its retail packaging, for only milliseconds on a high-speed conveyor. ECPTM has been cited by the U.S. FDA as the “new gold standard” in food treatment.

Dolan Falconer has over thirty years of extensive experience managing advanced technological development programs for private corporations and the federal government. He is the Co-founder and former CEO of ScanTech Sciences and was a key member of the management and technical team that developed the core electron beam technology that is the cornerstone of the company.  Other key roles and positions have included founder and Executive Vice President of Parallax, Inc., Division Manager for United Energy Services, Regulatory Compliance Specialist with Nuclear Energy Consultants; Reactor Engineer and Resident Inspector with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Graduate Research Fellow in Nuclear Sciences for the E.I. DuPont De Nemours Company. Mr. Falconer is an alumnus of the Georgia Institute of Technology, with a B.S. Nuclear Engineering (’78) and M.S. Nuclear Engineering (’79).

Chip Starns has over twenty years of managerial experience in operations and sales. In addition to his role as COO/ EVP, he currently serves on the Executive Committee (and Past President) on the Council on Ionizing Radiation Measurements and Standards (CIRMS) and on the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International, Radiation Processing Committee. Prior to joining ScanTech, Mr. Starns served as Senior Nuclear Engineer for Southern Company, Regional Manager for a national medical diagnostic imaging company and Supervisor for nuclear reactor and dive operations aboard nuclear fast attack submarines in the U.S. Navy. Mr. Starns earned a B.S. in Nuclear & Radiological Engineering from Georgia Tech and is a graduate of Naval Nuclear Power School and Navy Dive School.
