Awesomeness: Named 2014 Innovation Fund North Carolina award winner

In a world with increasing competition and regulation of chemical production in the huge pharmaceutical and cosmetic markets, look no further than RASP Technologies. Its compact, high-tech processing device can decrease production facilities’ overhead costs and ecological footprint. RASP, an acronym for Reaction and Separation Process, also enables the efficient production of bio-fuels, using vegetable oil waste to produce sustainable, eco-friendly bio-diesel.
