Sustainable EO® Sterilization

Ethylene oxide (EO) is a universally accepted sterilization technology that has delivered safe, sterile healthcare products for patient care since the 1960s. However, with the use of ethylene oxide as a sterilant, human safety and environmental challenges must be considered. As part of their commitment to providing innovative and sustainable solutions, STERIS AST has developed the Sustainable EO sterilization services program. Their Sustainable EO services provide Customers with strategies to reduce the EO sterilant used in the sterilization process to achieve the prescribed Sterility Assurance Level.


STERIS always help their customers with creating a healthier and saver world by providing innovative healthcare and life science products and services around the globe.

STERIS is founded as Innovative Medical Technologies in Ohio in 1985, the company was renamed STERIS in 1987.

They have approximately 16,000 Associates worldwide and operate in more than 100 countries.
