EPA Completes Review of New Chemical from Platinum Research Organization
Dallas, TX | Posted on August 2nd, 2007
EPA's decision comes at the conclusion of the agency's review of a Pre-Manufacture Notification (PMN) submitted by Platinum Research Organization Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: PLRO) (http://www.platinumresearch.com/), the developer of TechroBond and a maker of patented high-performance lubricant and coating additives.
The completed review clears the way for commercial production and distribution of TechroBond.
In the 90 days preceding its decision, the EPA evaluated data on the chemical composition of TechroBond, the results of health and safety tests performed on the new material, computer simulations, safety plans and procedures relating to TechroBond's production and distribution, waste disposal plans and other aspects involved in TechroBond's manufacture and distribution.
Platinum Research Organization (PRO) retained the Washington, D.C., law firm of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C., a leading authority on industrial, specialty, and agricultural chemicals and medical device product approval and regulation, to manage PRO's PMN process with the EPA.
"The EPA's decision is an auspicious first step in the global distribution of TechroBond and one of which we are very proud," said John T. (Cork) Jaeger Jr., president and CEO of Platinum Research Organization Inc. (PRO). "The EPA process can be a daunting task, but our experienced staff, our independent consultants, our U.S. law firm and its international consulting affiliates will positively impact PRO as we seek worldwide registration of TechroBond and as we ramp up manufacturing and distribution."
Bergeson & Campbell focuses on federal, state and international regulatory requirements applicable to conventional and nanoscale chemicals, including the products of nanotechnology and biotechnology. The firm is counsel to large chemical companies, small start-ups and others all sharing a need to obtain government approval of their chemical product innovations. In addition to the considerable regulatory experience of the firm's lawyers, the professionals associated with the firm have extensive scientific and governmental experience, including a former assistant administrator for the EPA and a doctor of organic chemistry with more than 25 years of experience in regulatory matters in the industrial chemical community, among other skilled scientific and government affairs professionals.
"Working with the PRO team is an opportunity to interact with a sterling group of professionals," said Lynn L. Bergeson, one of the law firm's principals. "We are very excited about the potential for TechroBond. It can have a very positive effect on the environment by improving the efficiency of catalytic converters in vehicles while out-performing other additives in lubricants and coatings."
