JRW Bioremediation’s LactOil™ Groundwater Remediation Product Awarded U.S. Patent

Lenexa, KS, September 03, 2010 --(PR.com)-- JRW Bioremediation, LLC, in partnership with Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM), announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office awarded a patent to the two companies for LactOil™ soy microemulsion. This renewable product enables environmental professionals to cost effectively clean-up soil and groundwater contaminated by chlorinated solvents, metals, nitrates and perchlorates.

The U.S. EPA estimates that in the U.S. alone there are over 217,000 contaminated sites that require remediation. LactOil can be used to treat 18 of the top 20 most frequently occurring ground water contaminants found at hazardous waste sites, including Trichloroethylene (TCE) a common degreasing solvent, Perchlorethylene (PCE) the most widely used dry-cleaning solvent, Ammonium Perchlorate, found in solid rocket fuel and munitions, and Hexavalent Chromium (Cr+6) the main groundwater contaminant highlighted in the movie Erin Brockovich.

LactOil is a soy based product containing five functional ingredients designed to stimulate bacteria already residing in the environment to degrade and remove toxic pollutants from groundwater, thus restoring these valuable resources. LactOil is biodegradable and is exclusively derived from corn and soybeans. U.S. Patent number 7,785,468 published on November 6, 2008, and issued on August 31, 2010 describes the properties of this innovative bioremediation amendment.

Since June 2007, environmental professionals have successfully deployed LactOil at more than 40 locations in North America varying in size from small drycleaner sites, to industrial properties, to large federal projects. Professionals using LactOil have commented on the ease of material handling, excellent subsurface distribution and multiyear longevity. They are also pleased with the competitive cost advantage the product gives them when bidding for projects.

Using LactOil and JRW’s other bioremediation products can save more than 90 percent on clean-up costs as compared to traditional pump and treat systems. LactOil doesn’t leave behind any residual hazardous chemical byproducts like chemical oxidation technologies typically can. In contrast to standard vegetable oil substrates, LactOil’s unique high solids, low viscosity, long lived, highly stable properties allow environmental professionals to more quickly and cost effectively reach their clean-up goals.

JRW Bioremediation is an innovator in the development of green and sustainable products that provide economical solutions for environmental professionals. JRW’s natural products have been deployed in hundreds of communities across North America and Europe improving the quality of life for those living there.
