FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GeoSolve Completes Large Contract in Massachessetts
-- The GeoSolve Process developed by the GeoSolve
Division of Venture Enterprises of Wilmington, North Carolina
was applied in a full remediation groundwater cleanup
in a shallow aquifer overlaying a town's drinking water
aquifer in Massachussets. The remediation of MTBE and
BTEX chemical compounds from gasoline were targeted at
the former gas station site. GeoSolve had conducted
successful bench scale and pilot scale tests in March
and April 2000, respectively.
Ron Vigneri is the developer of the GeoSolve Process,
he previously invented and sold the CleanOX Process, which
is being applied to groundwater worldwide at the present
time. Mr. Vigneri was named by the New Jersey Institute
of Technology as 1999 Inventor of the Year and inducted
into the NJIT Inventors Hall of Fame. His patent crdits
and references can be referenced at www.uspto.gov,
select "Patnet Search" search, then enter in
the "Ref" section "Vigneri".
The GeoSolve Process utilizes low concentration
hydrogen peroxide, as does the CleanOX Process, but the
chemical reactions are very different. No large liquid-to-gas
phase volume expansion is present in the GeoSolve
Process, only liquid phase chemical reactions are present.
GeoSolve can be directly applied to drinking water
with no residual effects other than some increase in
the dissolved oxygen content of the treated water (a beneficial
effect). Treatments are completed in a matter of days
in contrast to many other technologies which require
considerably longer periods of time to yield a result.
This is one reason the treatment method is far less expensive
than other methods. Mobile equipment is utilized and other
on-site activities can proceed during treatment.
