VA Filtration USA patents are successfully defended

A competitor in the mobile service industry recently challenged the validity of VA Filtration USA’s patents. The USPTO re-examined both the 616 and the 977 patents and found them to be valid without any claims being amended.  These patents cover the method for the removal of VA and taints from wine in the USA.  We are extremely happy with the outcome of these proceedings and we hope that the industry as a whole recognizes that these are legitimate patents. At this point, there are no licensed service providers, both mobile or fixed installation, for this technology in the industry.  We hope to be adding licensed providers soon.
