Ongoing Soil Remediation Project in the Middle East
Our technology and chemical formulations are being used to help clean the Gulf War oil lakes in Kuwait. Our revolutionary, environmentally-friendly process is capable of recovering oil from contaminated sand for reuse. Alternative methods of clean-up attempt use high temperature thermal treatment that release toxic emissions to the atmosphere.
2005 Hurricane Katrina Clean-up in New Orleans
Participated in the cleanup initiative of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, 2005. Our chemicals were used to combat odor and mold accumulating within the Louisiana Superdome, a refuge for the evacuees of the Hurricane.
1989 Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Clean Up in Alaska
The EPA called upon Dr. Mohsen Amiran to aid in the remediation efforts of the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska, 1989. The Exxon Valdez oil spill has been ranked one of the worst man-made environmental catastrophes in history. Dr. Mohsen Amiran, our chief chemical engineer, developed one of three authorized cleaning chemicals by the EPA to be used in the clean up efforts off the coast. The chemical, currently marketed as the All Purpose Degreaser, was applied to the surface oil spill where ecological sensitivity was extremely crucial. It worked by encapsulating the particles of hydrocarbon, rendering them incapable of re-adhering and allowing for ease of breakdown.
