ATLANTA, Ga., March 14, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state's leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia's technology industry, today announced Red Bag Solutions as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2012 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 28, 2012, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.

TAG's Top 40 Awards are presented to Georgia technology companies based on degree of innovation, the scope and financial impact of their innovations and effect of such innovation in promoting Georgia's technology industry throughout the U.S. and globally.

Red Bag Solutions offers patented technology and equipment for the on-site processing of regulated medical waste. Since 1990 Red Bag Solutions has offered Steam Sterilization and Maceration (SSM) for safe, community friendly on-site processing of bio-hazardous waste. In 2011, Red Bag Solutions released its new Ozone Sterilization and Maceration (OSM) technology, a groundbreaking innovation for which it is being recognized as TAG Top 40 Company. Ozone sterilization and maceration is more environmentally friendly and less costly than other bio-hazardous waste management alternatives and represents a giant leap forward in sustainable bio-hazardous waste management.

"The Top 40 companies are shining examples of what makes Georgia a hotbed for innovation in technology," said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. "Georgia is home to more than 13,000 technology companies, so we applaud the 2012 Top 40 finalists for standing out as leaders in innovation and in Georgia's technology community. These are the types of companies that will help Georgia become recognized as one of the top states in the nation for technology."

The Georgia Technology Summit is TAG's flagship event that brings together C-level executives, entrepreneurs, technology professionals and academia to celebrate and recognize Georgia's technology community. This year's theme, Innovation: The Path to a Bright Future, builds upon TAG's public awareness campaign to promote Georgia's technology industry through an emphasis on the fastest-growing tech clusters in the state, including health IT, information security, financial technology, logistics and communication services.

"This year we had a 30 percent increase in the number of applications over the past few years. We were very impressed by the quality and breadth of technology companies that applied," said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. "It was very difficult to choose the Top 40 because of the large number of deserving companies. We expect great things from our winners."
