Since 1997 Richter International
has teamed with the Battelle Memorial Institute (Battelle)
to provide comprehensive problem-solving and research capabilities
in the area of food safety, quality, and security.
Battelle is governed by a self-perpetuating
Board of Directors and is a charitable trust organized as
a non-profit corporation under the laws of the State of Ohio.
Since 1929 Battelle has been serving industry and government
in the development of new technologies and products. Battelle
and the labs it manages and co-manages has a staff of 16,000
scientists, engineers, and support specialists. Each year,
thousands of technology projects are in progress at Battelle's
various business operations. These projects are performed
for nearly 2,000 companies and government agencies. Battelle
conducts $2.7 billion in annual research and development.
Typically, this work results in between 50-100 patented inventions
