A new green, toxin free, cost efficient Oil Dispersant has been used to assist in the Oil Spill Remediation at a mid-Atlantic naval facility. FFT-SolutionTM an approved EPA registered chemical is now listed on the National Contingency Plan list for approved dispersants. EnviroSmart was tasked with responding to a release of number 6 fuel oil that spread on the sidewalls of a storage tank, the surrounding area, and some of the storm drains located in the immediate area. Michael Costa, REM with EnviroSmart, said, "FFT-SolutionTM was used to clean the exterior of the storage tank, storm pipe drains and headwalls, as well as equipment and vehicle decontamination activities. It was a very easy and effective application that we would recommend using for other similar oil spill response actions. We believe FFT-SolutionTM saved our client money and improved our response time with apparent removal of the oil."

 

Fog Free Technologies (FFT), a South Carolina, USA- based company, has pick-locked nature's own compounds to produce a plant-based, toxin-free solution to organically clean up oil spills world wide. The product known as FFT-SolutionTM effectively transforms crude oil into fine particles to promote biodegradation of oil in the ocean and on the shore. FFT Vice-President Doc Knight said, "this 100% organic solution has been tested using U. S. Environmental Protection Agency standards, and has been approved by the EPA to be listed on the National Contingency Plan (NCP) list as an oil dispersant." Knight also said "we are pleased that EnviroSmart selected FFT-SolutionTM as one of their tools to clean up this spill." FFT's patented product formulas serve a variety of applications from crude oil remediation, wastewater utility cleaners of fat, oil, grease and odor, commercial and household cleaning products and more. FFT's product formulas are 100% toxin free and completely bio-degradable.
