Green Earth Technologies: New Ultimate Biodegradable Solution for the Gulf Oil Spill Disaster?
reen Earth Technologies (Pink Sheets: GETG) have submitted G-Marine OSC-1809 Oil &
Fuel Spill Clean-UP! to the EPA as a non-toxic dispersant option for immediate consideration to emulsify and remediate the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The G-Marine Oil & Fuel Spill Clean-UP! brand is new to the marketplace and has recently been submitted to the EPA for approval, but all of the product‘s ingredients have passed DfE screening and may be found on DfE‘s Cleangredient list that confirms biodegradation and non-toxicity.
The EPA has Given BP Officials 24 Hours to Choose a Less Toxic Chemical Dispersant. Green Earth Tech- nologies has the capacity to meet EPA‘s requirements with a concentrated solution of G-Marine Oil & Fuel Spill Clean-UP!, made from a base of plant, tree, fruit and vegetable extracts processed into a colloidal micelle solution.
“Due to the nature and urgency of this crisis, we believe that the EPA should waive the 60-90 day approval process, and consider any and all non-toxic alternatives that can meet the needs of the issue at hand,” said Jeffrey Loch, Founder and CMO of Green Earth Technologies. “As all of the ingredients of the G-MARINE dispersant are already approved on the DfE‘s list, making them safe for direct to water re-
lease, the EPA should have confidence in our existing data and results allowing for on-site testing.”
Supporting this unique solution to the Gulf oil ca- tastrophe is the Disaster Response Leadership Fo- rum, a Washington-based independent organization which identifies the most effective disaster response solutions. Its Chairman – William Loiry – was instru- mental in bringing thousands of government, busi- ness, and nonprofit leaders together to facilitate the short-term and long-term economic reconstruction of the U.S. Gulf Coast following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Loiry has recommended approval of the Green Earth Technologies non-toxic solution to BP CEO Tony Hayward.
“BP has already expressed interest in G-MARINE and we urge the EPA to give their blessing to a new, but proven product as the chosen dispersant,” said Jeff Marshall, Chairman & CEO of Green Earth Technolo- gies. “As the oil reaches the environmentally sensitive Louisiana coastline, it is important to react immedi- ately and we know G-MARINE Fuel Spill Clean-Up! will be the answer for this effort. The fact that this solution is non-toxic should also be good news to the millions of Americans now concerned about the safety of seafood in the Gulf of Mexico.”
