Florida DEP Approves PlumeStop Liquid Activated Carbon for Soil and Groundwater Cleanup
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Jan 25, 2016—REGENESIS has received approval from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), accepting the use of its internationally recognized treatment substrate, PlumeStop Liquid Activated Carbon (LAC) as an innovative technology in the treatment of contaminated soil and groundwater. Florida joins a growing number of states to approve the use of REGENESIS’ innovative and proven method for remediating soil and groundwater at impacted Superfund sites and beyond.
Scott B. Wilson, CEO and president of REGENESIS, is delighted with the recent good news, “The FDEP’s approval marks another step forward for this revolutionary product. With so many regions in the U.S. and abroad benefitting from the speed and effectiveness of PlumeStop, we believe there is no better way to safely and quickly stop contaminant plumes while also remediating soil and groundwater on sites currently compromised.”
The crucial support from this renowned environmental state authority — which remains strongly focused on its Petroleum Restoration Program — comes after a series of welcomed approvals from other state agencies, including Massachusetts, Iowa, Indiana and Michigan. It also signifies the official inclusion of PlumeStop as part of the FDEP’s Innovative Technology Acceptance program, aimed at providing exposure and credibility to alternative, cost-effective and efficient petroleum remediation methods that may result in their further use at additional sites.
REGENESIS’ Regional Manager, Barry Poling, is equally delighted with this approval. “With so many regions affected by soil and groundwater contamination, our health and the health of our children needs to be safeguarded now more than ever before. REGENESIS’ mission has always been to create solutions that are effective, while still being gentle on the surrounding environment. Florida’s acceptance of PlumeStop clearly confirms the important work our team at REGENESIS has accomplished.”
Through highly dispersible, fast-acting, sorption-based technology, which captures and concentrates contaminants, REGENESIS’ PlumeStop goes to work within days of site application and continues to work for years, pulling contaminants directly from groundwater and stimulating their biodegradation. Through the world’s leading environmental consulting firms, REGENESIS’ innovative methods have been implemented in tens of thousands of projects across 17 states, and in three countries outside the U.S.: Italy, Canada and the United Kingdom.
REGENESIS Remediation Division Manager, Scott Mullin, concludes, “We are delighted and honored to be accepted by the FDEP, along with the vital environmental watchdogs of so many other states and countries. REGENESIS is paving the way for the future of remediation technologies, and with every step forward, our world becomes a little bit safer and cleaner for generations to come.”
