Autoclave Accolade

Former President Jimmy Carter, at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service, gave accolades to a team that developed the solar autoclave that won the 2008 UD business plan competition.

Salud del Sol, an innovative new business from a team of UD students, makes it possible to sterilize medical instruments in remote areas of developing countries where there is no other means to do so.

Besides winning the $10,000 first prize in the 2008 UD business plan competition, the team received accolades from former President Jimmy Carter at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service.
