New Remediation Biotechnology for NAPL Sites.Carus Corporation and The Adventus Group Form Partnership to Offer Innovative RemOx([R]) EC Stabilization Reagent Technology
PERU Peru, country, South America
Peru (pər`), Span. Perú (pār , Ill. -- Carus Corporation, the world's largest and only domestic manufacturer of permanganates, and The Adventus Group, an international environmental biotechnology firm, announced their collaboration to introduce RemOx([R]) EC Stabilization Reagent. Designed for hard-to-treat non-aqueous phase liquid (NAPL NAPL Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid

All global sales and distribution activities will be channeled through Carus Chemical's Hazardous Remediation Team, headed by Matthew Dingens.
How it works
RemOx([R]) EC in situ biogeochemical stabilization entails the use of modified permanganate permanganate /per·man·ga·nate/ (per-mang´gah-nat) a salt containing the MnO4- ion.
Any of the salts of permanganic acid, all of which are strong oxidizing agents. solutions for the purposes of mass removal and flux reduction (i.e., NAPL stabilization). As the oxidant oxidant /ox·i·dant/ (ok´si-dant) the electron acceptor in an oxidation-reduction (redox) reaction.

In addition, the insoluble MnO2 precipitate that results from catalyzed permanganate oxidation will accumulate along the NAPL interface, physically coating it and thereby reducing the flux of dissolved-phase COI into the groundwater.
The firms summarized key benefits of using RemOx([R]) EC for sites impacted by hard-to-treat NAPLs as:
* Rapid source stabilization
* Dramatically reduced source flux
* High compatibility with natural attenuation Loss of signal power in a transmission.
The reduction in level of a transmitted quantity as a function of a parameter, usually distance. It is applied mainly to acoustic or electromagnetic waves and is expressed as the ratio of power densities. technologies
* Half the historical cost of current conventional alternatives
"When Dr. Carus founded this company in 1915, he fostered a commitment to provide innovative products and services for our customers which are designed to help them meet or exceed their business objectives. The Adventus Group's similar mission and complementary remediation biotechnologies led to this exciting collaboration," Inga Carus, president and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. of Carus Corporation. "The pricing models have indicated outstanding value, with RemOx([R]) EC being a very competitive alternative for NAPL type situations, where, for example, thermal destruction can range from $300 to $500/m3, and ISCO ISCO International Standard Classification of Occupations

The show premiered with little publicity in October 2001, following the surprise hit comedy My Wife and Kids. Mueller, president of Adventus Americas Inc., "We have identified a wide variety of industries, regulators, and reputable consultancies that are currently considering this option to proactively address NAPL concerns throughout the world. Large-scale field trials in Alabama, Florida, Colorado and Europe are in various stages of operation. Our scientists and engineers continue to work with various MGP (Monochrome Graphics Printer port) A display adapter that employs Hercules Graphics and a parallel printer port on the same expansion board. owners and their consultants to implement the RemOx([R]) EC technology in this important market sector. We look forward to pursuing the many market opportunities this strategic partnership with Carus will produce."

About Carus Corporation
Carus Corporation is the world's largest manufacturer of potassium permanganate. During its more than 90-year history, Carus' ongoing emphasis on research and development, technical support, and customer service, has enabled the company to become the world leader in permanganate, manganese oxidation, and catalyst technologies.
A strategy of expansion was adopted in the 1990's when Carus acquired Technical Products Corporation (TPC (Transaction Processing Performance Council, San Francisco, CA, www.tpc.org) An organization devoted to benchmarking transaction processing systems. In order to derive the number of transactions that can be processed in a given time frame, TPC benchmarks measure the total performance of ) in 1997 and The Kjell Corporation in 1998. In 2000, Carus acquired the permanganate business of Industrial Quimica del Nalon (IQN IQN iSCSI Qualified Name
IQN Industrial Química del Nalón SA (Spanish chemical company) ) of Oviedo, Spain. This acquisition represented Carus' commitment to develop the potassium permanganate market in Europe, and was an important step to help expand the European market for potassium permanganate.
Today, Carus Corporation manufactures a wide range of products for municipal, industrial, and environmental markets (i.e. water treatment and air purification) -- with the majority used in environmental applications. Products include CAIROX([R]) and AQUOX([R]) potassium permanganate, LIQUOX([R]) sodium permanganate, RemOx([R]) ISCO Reagents (remediation grade permanganates), CARULITE([R]) catalysts, and a complete line of corrosion control products including AQUA MAG([R]), TPC([R]), and VIRCHEM([R]).
