PRP- NASA Invented Oil Spill Solution
Petroleum Remediation Product (PRP) was invented by NASA and represents the most significant advancement in the ongoing struggle of hydrocarbon cleanup. PRP is the only product that will encapsulate and bio-remediate hydrocarbons on-site; 20-40x its weight. PRP provides safe and permanent removal of petroleum based pollutants. This will reduce labor, disposal, and transportation cost associated with this work. Our product is effective on water or land.
· Invented by NASA; 2008 NASA Hall of Fame Award 2008
· Encapsulates and bio-remediates all petroleum based pollution
· Effective on all areas (salt or fresh water, shores, marshes, soils, rocks, beaches, concrete, etc)
· Hydrophobic and Oleophilic (Will NOT harm wildlife or plant life)
· Non-Hazardous and bio-degradable (safe for workers, wildlife, and plant life)
· Most cost effective solution (reduces waste collection, hazardous waste transportation, and hazardous waste storage)
· Proven successful in high volume oil clean up (1MM gallons spilled in Persian Gulf)
Using PRP the whole cleanup could be managed as simple as:
1.) Apply PRP as the oil hits the surface using hydro seeders mounted on boats.
2.) By the time the oil slick hits the coast the majority of the hydrocarbons will be bio-remediated (depending on the time it takes to make shore)
3.) The rest of the bio-remediation will complete soon after.
4.) For oil that does reach the shore, apply PRP in the same method as the water and receive the same results, total bio-remediation.
PRP is not just an absorbent it encapsulates the hydrocarbon and immediately changes the HC compound mitigating the hazard to wildlife, yet adds no organisms not already present in the environment. If a bird was to land in the PRP encapsulated spill/water, the oil would not be transferred to the animal. Water Fowl exposed to the oil can even be cleaned using PRP. Ducks Unlimited, a national conservation organization, was contacted to legally obtain specimens for this test; we can send the report from the test. PRP is hydrophobic and oleophilic meaning it will only absorb the oil and not any water. It provides a “seal” at the top of the water and a food source that the naturally occurring microorganisms already present in the environment can flourish until they consume every droplet of crude oil. Our PRP will not add any “bugs” not already present in the environment. Some researchers believe the addition of foreign organisms can cause mutations in the environment.
