(Atlanta, GA) – Reveam executives and representatives from U.S. National Laboratories recently met with Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) leadership to kick-off a partnership towards developing a multidisciplinary accelerator-based center of excellence for advanced E-beam and X-ray research and innovation.

Accelerator-based technologies such as E-Beam and X-ray have long promoted innovative and sustainable solutions to critical issues around the world. Emerging applications of these technologies in Food Safety and Waste, Homeland Security, Energy, Medicine, Materials Science, and Sustainability require resources to support focused programs of research and development and the training of highly-qualified technical personnel.

The memorandum of understanding between Reveam and Georgia Tech includes a new facility to enable research and development in many areas, provide a regional resource for education and training, and inspire commercial applications to address some of the most critical environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) focused issues.

In addition, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced a $54 million investment in National Laboratories for microelectronics research. This funding lays the foundation for solutions to challenges like climate crisis and national security, which support the new facility by attracting highly qualified U.S. resources to the region for innovation and collaboration.

“We look forward to working with Reveam to establish an accelerator-based center of excellence to foster innovation and create new pathways for research and discovery,” states Dr. Steven Biegalski, Chair of Nuclear and Radiological Engineering at Georgia Tech. “This new facility directly supports Georgia Tech’s objective to align its multidisciplinary research efforts to help address the most critical local and global challenges as articulated by the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals.”

Founded by Chip Starns and Dolan Falconer, both graduates of Georgia Tech’s nationally ranked Top 10 engineering program, Atlanta-based Reveam spawned out of the Institute’s Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC), considered a top “incubator changing the world” by Forbes magazine.

Reveam leverages accelerator-based technologies to improve the safety and quality of the world’s food supply through a proprietary and environmentally sustainable treatment process known as Electronic Cold-Pasteurization™(ECP™). Approved by both the USDA and FDA, ECP™ is a chemical-free, heat-free treatment that eliminates harmful pests and pathogens while extending shelf-life at the peak of freshness and pinnacle of safety.

“We are proud to partner with Georgia Tech to establish a facility with shared infrastructure for education and training of the next generation. We know first-hand the wide array of applications for these technologies and fully support bringing capabilities in the region for advancement and innovation,” states Chip Starns, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President at Reveam.
