Every year new start-up companies emerge from WSU to bring their ideas to the market place.
The Protium Company
Protium began in Pullman in 2015 as Protium Innovations LLC, a startup out of the Washington State University Hydrogen Properties for Energy Research (HYPER) Lab. Our signature product is a liquid hydrogen tank system for UAV platforms, based on patented VCS™ technology.
Available exclusively through 915 Labs, Microwave Assisted Thermal Sterilization (MATS™) and Microwave Assisted Pasteurization (MAPS™) solve one of the most pressing challenges facing the food industry today: providing consumers with high quality, natural and additive-free packaged foods.
By shortening the time food is exposed to high heat, the patented MATS and MAPS technologies preserve the color, taste and texture of food — while eliminating the need for excess sodium, additives and enhancers.
The result? High-quality, great-tasting, safe and convenient packaged foods.
