Anesthetic Gas Collection & Processing Services

Blue-Zone Technologies Ltd., a Canadian company, has the proprietary and patented technology to capture anesthetics through their Deltasorb® Anesthetic Collection Service and then purify the drug for resale. The Deltasorb® Anesthetic Collection Service creates monthly revenue from participating hospitals and is currently used in over 200 hospital operating rooms. The purified drug is sold to manufacturers, resellers and hospitals from our fully operational plant which processes and produces bulk pure anesthetic drug substance.

The Supply Problem of Anesthetic Gases

Global demand for anesthetic gases is growing annually by 15% with no alternative supply upcoming. Anesthetics are one of the most expensive drugs used in hospitals with over $1 Billion spent worldwide every year. In addition, the leading supply of anesthetic used in North America is monopolistic and single-sourced. Capturing volatile anesthetic gases and then purifying them for resale represents a large value as an alternative source of supply.

The Blue-Zone Technologies Ltd. Competitive Advantage

Blue-Zone’s globally innovative anesthetic gas collection and processing technology is patent-protected and currently the only commercially viable alternative to anesthetic gas venting. Our anesthetic manufacturing facility has been approved by Health Canada and the FDA and we are now pursuing approvals for marketing and selling anesthetics.

The Deltasorb® Anesthetic Collection technology enables hospitals to comply with EPA toxic release regulations and Occupational Health & Safety Standards. Hospitals will be able to showcase their green community partnership with no capital outlay, no retrofits and no new infrastructure. Plus, hospitals qualify for monetary incentives in the form of Carbon Offset Credits and Raw Material Contribution Payback.
