Adventus Group awarded Environmental Protection’s new product of the year, soil and groundwater category, for EHC-L®


CHICAGO -- Adventus Group has been awarded the Environmental Protection New Product of the Year award in the Soil and Groundwater category. Environmental Protection is an organization dedicated to companies, projects, and efforts that work to better our environment. This honor is given for the achievements of industry manufacturers whose products make environmental professionals' jobs easier.

Adventus Group’s work with the treatment of contaminated soil and groundwater fits that criterion ideally. Their latest remediation product, EHC-L®, is the newest member of the EHC family of In Situ Chemical Reduction (ISCR™) technologies. These remedial amendments allow for the removal of various constituents from groundwater and soil environments with an unprecedented degree of efficiency and effectiveness.

“We’re honored to have been selected by Environmental Protection for our EHC-L amendment,” said Alan Seech, PhD, CEO and Director of Technology for Adventus Group. “Our ISCR products represent a logical step in reduction mechanisms, and we're on the leading edge of that field.”

EHC-L offers the combined benefits of two powerful reduction mechanisms — biotic and abiotic dechlorination — using the right balance of superior fermentable carbon substrates and iron additives. Organic constituents amenable to bioremediation processes by EHC-L include chlorinated solvents, energetics and pesticides/herbicides.

Adventus Group’s innovation and leadership in soil and groundwater remediation space will continue to be vital in keeping the environment safe and clean. This Environmental Protection award is recognition of that fact and of Adventus’ dedication to that ideal.
