In order to treat stormwater runoff, the chemistries had to be non-toxic and go through full toxicity testing to prove they would not harm even the most sensitive species in the rivers, lakes and estuaries. Our biopolymer has completed this rigorous testing and is now certified. Highly turbid water collected and used as a water supply can't be used until it is treated to meet either drinking or water quality criteria. We are able to treat high levels of TSS generated in water supplies from monsoons and heavy rain events in a short amount of time and remove TSS to well below 10 mg/L. The treated sediment is put back onto the fields as the biopolymer is also a good fertilizer. All water treated with it can directly enter even pristine estuaries as it is 100% non-toxic.
We harvest waste crab and shrimp shells around the world, convert them into a stable product (chitosan) that has a shelf life, then dissolve it into acetic acid (vinegar) made from sea water and electricity (wind power), and convert it into a liquid biopolymer. This biopolymer can be used to treat water, wastewater or be applied to crops to prevent decimation from bugs or insects and improve crop production without the use of herbicides or pesticides, naturally.
We can provide the biopolymer either in liquid form (1% or 1.5%) or dry form as a dry powder. We can build flowing water treatment systems either for stationary or mobile applications of any size, or passive floc socs where turbid water can flow by either by gravity or pumped through a floc soc and have the biopolymer dissolve and attach to the sediment and drop it out. Each 1-lb. floc soc can treat 100,000 gallons of water and a kit with 10 floc socs can do a million gallons at a cost of $0.003/gallon for the kit and then replacement floc socs can treat water for $0.00092/gallon.
Local manufacturing of the biopolymer can be regionalized as crab and shrimp shells are harvested all around the world.
