Chicago, Ill. (Vocus) December 9, 2009 -- As part of ongoing efforts to expand deployment of 21st century environmental biotechnologies across the globe, The Adventus Group, a world leader in the contaminated soil, sediment and groundwater remediation industry, is pleased to announce formal establishment of its independent office in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Increasing demand for access to scientifically defensible, field-proven and cost-efficient biotechnologies has driven establishment of a dedicated office in this rapidly developing country. Business operations will be managed by Ms. Josephine Molin, and will serve as Adventus’ business development hub for Brazil and Latin America.
Dr. Jim Mueller, President of Adventus Americas Inc., stated "Over the past two years, our staff has worked hard in the Brazilian marketplace, successfully partnering with local environmental remediation professionals to facilitate the introduction of In Situ Chemical Reduction (ISCR™) and other innovative biotechnologies. SGW Services Engenharia Ambiental Ltda. in particular, was very effective in getting our technologies accepted and effectively applied to remediate various impacted sites, and we are very appreciative of their support".
