VeruTEK Technologies Enters Into Research and Development Agreement With the National Risk Management Laboratory of the U.S. Environmental Protection

BLOOMFIELD, CT | Posted on February 13th, 2008

John Collins, Ph.D., President and CEO of VeruTEK, said, "This partnership with the EPA furthers our focus as one of the first enviroceutical companies to develop, formulate, and distribute green chemistry solutions and implementation technologies that remedy and eliminate the toxic effects of chemical waste in the environment."

The National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL) of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has performed substantial research and development with respect to remediating and destroying various organic and inorganic environmental toxins to prevent and reduce pollutant risks that threaten human health and the environment.

Sally Gutierrez, Director of the NRMRL, added, "The combination of our advanced scientific skills, especially in the field of green synthesis of safe nanoparticles, with VeruTEK's expertise in the use of green chemistry for soil remediation and water and wastewater treatment technologies, will enable us together to make advancements in green environmental applications that can be utilized by both the private and public sectors."
