Home > Press > VeruTEK Technologies, Inc. Launches, Announces Next Generation Green Solutions for Cleaning Up the Environment

Abstract:
VeruTEK Technologies, Inc. (VTKT.OB) launched today and announced the availability of its patent-pending, green nanotech solutions for environmental remediation. VeruTEK's S-ISCO™ and S-ESCO™ solutions remedy environmental contamination from petroleum, chlorinated solvents, pesticides, herbicides, PCBs, dioxin, and other toxic chemicals "in place," eliminating the need for costly excavation.

VeruTEK Technologies, Inc. Launches, Announces Next Generation Green Solutions for Cleaning Up the Environment

GLASTONBURY, CT | Posted on May 17th, 2007

Co-founder and CEO Dr. John Collins said, "We are pleased to reach this milestone as a company and especially excited about the results we have achieved in the field with our S-ISCO™ and S-ESCO™ solutions. Environmental green chemistry is a vitally important area in the global effort to create a sustainable environment for future generations and we are proud to be a part of it."

Traditional environmental remediation solutions involve the costly removal of vast quantities of contaminated soil. Often deeper contamination is left in place and the contaminants continue to impact the community. Now, a series of Coelution Technologies® developed by VeruTEK provides safe treatment in situ (in place). By combining natural surfactants and oxidant chemistries in a manner that provides controlled dissolution and oxidation, VeruTEK scientists treat each waste site with designer remedies. This is the first approach that holistically treats soil, groundwater and soil gas contamination.

Collins added, "Coelution Technologies® are 21st century technologies. They are high-tech, safe, and green. S-ISCO™ and S-ESCO™ enable treatments that remove contaminants from soils, groundwater and soil vapor, even beneath existing houses and buildings, protecting residents and communities from possible harm. These are truly groundbreaking technologies and with them we can get on with the job of cleaning these distressed sites up and contributing to a sustainable environment."

S-ISCO™ and S-ESCO™

S-ISCO™ (Surfactant-Enhanced In-Situ Chemical Oxidation) is a below ground coelute oxidant-cosolvent/surfactant mixture designed to destroy subsurface Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids (NAPLs). VeruTEK's S-ISCO™ overcomes the limitations/failures of traditional ISCO solutions.

S-ESCO™ (Surfactant-Enhanced Ex-Situ Chemical Oxidation) is an above ground solution that combines in-situ soil mixing with ex-situ soil treatment and overcomes the inherent costs and limitations of excavation.

VeruTEK works with environmental consulting firms, government agencies and large corporations such as manufacturers, chemical companies and railroads to implement site-specific remedies that are environmentally safe and non-intrusive to the nearby community. The Company is currently working on projects in multiple countries and expects to enter the $2.0 trillion distressed (contaminated) real estate market (National Brownfield Association 2006) in Q4 2007.
