Dr. Jason Gerhard and Professor Torero invented the STAR technology in 2005. They approached Gavin Grant, then a Ph.D. student of Dr. Gerhard, to further investigate this new idea as a postdoctoral researcher, and sought a letter of support from David Major for a research Grant. Gavin suggested he would be better placed within a company that could bring the technology to market to solve difficult issues for clients, and could think of no better partner in that endeavor than David Major. Together they formed a core team with Grant Scholes to commercialize the process and implement it in the field.

Our remediation solutions are based on Savron’s patented technology: an energy-efficient self-sustaining smoldering combustion process that captures and recycles the energy released from hazardous materials to destroy them in an effective, controllable, and safe manner.
