Tauriga Sciences, Inc. ("Tauriga" or "the Company"), a diversified company focused on generating profitable revenues through license agreements and the development of a proprietary technology platform in the nano-robotics space, today announced the execution of a multi faceted service agreement ("the agreement") with the University of Cincinnati Research Institute ("UCRI") to facilitate the commercialization of the Company's proprietary bacterial robot ("BactoBot™") technology platform for treatment and remediation of wastewater.
Through the signing of this agreement with UCRI, the company gains access to a work class laboratory in preparation for its anticipated two commercial pilot tests. In addition the Company plans to develop new products, such as the PCB remediating Nuclear BactoBot™, and the rapid prototyping expertise of the UCRI scientists will be of great value to the Company.
The service agreement between Tauriga and UCRI is a 5 year ("60 month") agreement with the effective date of Monday, February 03, 2014. There is the possibility that additional inventions and or intellectual property ("IP") will be conceived by the parties pursuant to this agreement and such IP will be commercialized by Tauriga. The Company shall file a Form 8K disclosing the above-mentioned service agreement in its entirety within the next few business days.
Tauriga's CEO Seth M. Shaw commented, "The Company's aim is to commercialize its technology and enable both businesses and municipalities to process the complex pollutants within wastewater while simultaneously extracting valuable chemicals stored within that wastewater. The signing of the service agreement with UCRI is an important puzzle piece in our commercialization efforts, because it provides the Company with access to both world class scientists and industry partners. Within days the Company expects to submit its final proposals for two commercial pilot tests; such proposals will be submitted to the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati and the world's largest beer manufacturer."
UCRI's CEO David R. Linger stated, "The type of multidisciplinary activities envisioned in this agreement with Tauriga is a great example of UCRI's mission; to connect the faculty and student talent from across of the University of Cincinnati with the problems industry is working to solve."
