OilClean from EcoSolutions Naturally Separates Oil from Water
Date:1/3/2013

Burlington, VT (PRWEB) January 03, 2013

Residents of the United States’ East Coast are focused on cleaning and repairing property damaged by Superstorm Sandy, but contaminated floodwaters and damage to natural ecosystems will leave a lasting impact on the region unless handled responsibly and expeditiously. EcoSolutions, a Vermont company specializing in cutting-edge water treatment systems, offers a new product that can ease the environmental impacts of this flooding, or other biological disasters such as oil spills.

EcoSolutions’ OilClean (http://www.oil-clean.net) can have a significant impact on water that has been contaminated by combining biological and patented technologies to naturally restore oil-polluted ecosystems. The bioremediation technology uses natural microorganisms to consume and completely degrade oil and its toxic byproducts from soil and water. OilClean is eco-safe, non-toxic, chemical-free, and there are no waste byproducts—the oil is not only separated, it is eliminated.

Developed in conjunction with Pro-Act Biotech, this non-invasive treatment system for marsh and wetland ecosystems can be implemented without additional damage to the habitat—no trampling, wiping or excavation is required. Depending on weather and water conditions, positive results can be seen within weeks.

“In the rush to repair storm damage, flood water quality is easily overlooked despite the health risks posed by pollutants in it,” says David Whitney, CEO and principal civil engineer of EcoSolutions. “We’re looking to donate our OilClean system to a non-profit organization helping with flood clean-up to show that this is an effective and natural method to help residents sanitize floodwater without getting sick.”

OilClean can also be used to decontaminate polluted marshes and wetlands, dangerous sub-surface oil deposits in beaches, and to clean polluted clean-up waste such as oil-soaked booms, rags, fabrics, and plastics.

To enhance the ease of use, EcoSolutions and Pro-Act Biotech also developed self-powered OilClean devices that distribute, monitor and regulate the flow of specialized oil-eating microbes, nutrients and oxygen in oil-polluted water. As part of the OilClean system, the devices use smart sensors that continually measure water quality and automatically regulate the flow of additives to maximize remediation and restoration. OilClean is one of only 20 oil bioremediation systems currently listed on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Contingency Plan Product Schedule.

EcoSolutions hopes to send OilClean System to New York and New Jersey communities dealing with floodwater cleanup. It is important to responsibly clean this waste as soon as possible to prevent long-term pollution. Any nonprofit organizations willing to accept a donation or implement a full-scale petroleum cleanup are encouraged to visit http://www.ecosoldesigns.com and contact David Whitney.
