UT Tech Transfer: Advanced Plasma

Although Knoxville-based Atmospheric Glow went bankrupt, the IP developed at and owned by the University of Tennessee Research Foundation lives on in Advanced Plasma Products, a subsidiary of Applied Science Products (formerly, Flight Safety Technologies), which relocated from Connecticut to Knoxville in 2009. APP's plasma technology kills airborn microbes that are sucked into a filter. The KNS has the story. Geoff Robson of the Center for Entrepreneurial Growth (CEG), which has been helping bake the APP bizplan and capraise, did a nice job stating the case for APP in a profile on the CEG's startup-oriented Out of the Garage site. Geoff is a former CFO with an Emerson Electric division and manages the formal CEG program on the UT-Knoxville campus. The CEG is a business-counseling and incubator programwithin Tech2020, sponsored in part by Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
