Sustainable Chemistry and Pharmacy
Sustainable chemistry technology, EcoBioClean®, degrades crude oil, catalyzing conversion into energy source used by microorganisms and other species.

- Works within minutes to alter an oil slick into punctate particles resembling ground black pepper.
- Major advance over standard chemical dispersant usage and other mechanical clean up measures.
Conventional treatment of crude oil contamination in open water of chemical dispersants, churning, burning, and soaking has limited effect and in-itself is potentially hazardous. We sought to provide an advanced bio-based green and sustainable chemistry solution that is safe and effective. A novel formula (EcoBioClean®) of proprietary microorganisms, enzymes, catalysts and nutritive components was constituted as a non-toxic rapid-impact remediation, reverse-engineering and bioconversion system. The formula transformed a crude oil slick within minutes into punctate particles resembling ground black pepper. A 21-day post treatment analysis using GC-MS confirmed the North Alaskan Slope Crude had become a nutrient-rich broth containing valuable elements such as choline, fatty acids, Carotene, Vitamin C, Iron, Vitamin E, Copper, Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc, Vitamin D and more than 15 amino acids. Upon contact EcoBioClean® initiates the conversion of crude oil into bio-available nutrient-rich marine food. The result is a benefit to marine life, the ecosystem, the environment, and the economy.
