TORONTO, Oct. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue-Zone Technologies, Ltd. (Blue-Zone), www.blue-zone.com, the world’s first Clean-Tech Pharmaceutical company focused on the sustainable capture and recovery of waste anesthetic gasses, resulting in the production of branded generic anesthetics, is proud to announce an $8 million round of institutional financing jointly led by the Canadian Venture Capital arm of Crédit Mutuel Equity (formerly CIC Capital Ventures) and Round Pound Ventures, LLC.
“We’re delighted to welcome an investor of Crédit Mutuel Equity’s calibre. In addition to the financial investment, we will leverage their extensive network and in-depth knowledge of the global healthcare sector. The next 12 months will be an exciting time for Blue-Zone as we scale-up our operation and accelerate our commercial efforts. The investment from Round Pound Ventures gives us access to a strategic partner, Halocarbon Life Sciences, LLC, with experience in the manufacturing, regulatory controls, distribution, and sales of halogenated anesthetic products. My vision for Blue-Zone is to make a significant contribution to the health and well-being of the communities surrounding Blue-Zone Certified Healthcare facilities worldwide, while building a world renowned, clean-tech pharmaceutical business,” said Kipton Lade, CEO of Blue-Zone Technologies.
“The idea that there is a technology that can prevent undesirable emissions from unused anesthetic gases in operating rooms and then process the captured gas to create novel pharmaceutical grade anesthetics for hospitals and other surgical suites creates an opportunity for a true win-win solution for the public, employees, physicians, technologists and suppliers in the industry. Blue-Zone’s seasoned team quickly demonstrated its ability to prove the merits of its solution scientifically and commercially to key stakeholders: hospitals, surgical centers, and Health Canada,” said Ludovic André, Managing Director, Venture Capital, Crédit Mutuel Equity. “We intend to be a value-added partner for Blue-Zone so that it can continue to solidify and quickly expand its deployment of the Deltasorb© and Centralsorb© systems across North America and abroad.”
“We believe that Blue-Zone’s technology has the potential to create environmental benefit for hospitals, improve workplace safety, and provide access to environmentally friendly pharmaceutical grade anesthetic products for operating rooms and intensive care units,” said David Bacon, Board Member of Blue-Zone Technologies and CEO of Halocarbon Life Sciences.
Blue-Zone Technologies Ltd. was founded in 1999 by Dusanka Filipovic, a renowned Professional Engineer, co-inventor of Blue-Zone’s core technologies, and entrepreneur with more than 20 years of experience in engineering processes. Dusanka led the technology development from its conceptual stage and guided the intellectual property and regulatory successes. Dusanka will remain with Blue-Zone as a consultant through its scale-up and commercialization phase.
