Happy New Year

The beginning of the year is always exciting.  I find myself looking forward to the opportunities and challenges ahead and setting those daunting resolutions. Making a list of objectives is a healthy exercise.  For me, it provides a road map for things I hope to accomplish in the coming year.  As a Company, Tersus Environmental does the same.   I would like to share with you a little insight into our objectives and goals and touch on some of the highlights.

From a broad perspective, our list of “resolutions” for 2012 may sound familiar and is perhaps not very different than yours.  We have a clear vision of what we want to deliver to our Customers around the world every year.  We aspire to:

  • Offer the best biotechnology-based solutions to effectively manage complex, challenging environmental liabilities; reducing costs for site closure; and improving customer service
  • Operate safely, reliably, efficiently and economically
  • Continue to improve our customer experience
  • Provide the products and services that our customers want
  • Integrate the new products and services that we will release in 2012 with excellence

We have a passion for supporting our clients by delivering the best Customer Service and technologies on a daily basis.  We will accomplish several initiatives this year that will improve the Customer Experience, help our client’s save money, increase remediation effectiveness and achieve site closure.

These are just some of the highlights.  John, Aaron, and I are very excited about the year ahead.  From all of us at Tersus Environmental and inVentures Technologies, we wish you peace, happiness and prosperity.   Happy New Year!

Chasing rainbows with emulsified vegetable oil (EVO)?  Make the ultimate upgrade to Tersus Environmental, featuring EDS-ER™ combined with the power of Gas inFusion, the  next evolution in Enhanced Reductive Dechlorination.

There are a number of different hydrogen donors commercially available for enhanced reductive dechlorination projects. In evaluating your options, electron donor source cost can be misleading and it is important that you understand the cost implications of the hydrogen donor(s) selected for your project. Hydrogen is the source of electron donors that drives the process. One measure to evaluate the cost effectiveness is the cost per pound of hydrogen generated.

EDS-ER is 100% fermentable. The treatment of contaminants with EDS-ER is further enhanced with the addition of hydrogen-enriched water. This patent pending process offers one of the most powerful hydrogen-releasing technologies available today at a low cost per pound of hydrogen generated.

The addition of hydrogen-enriched water to EDS-ER provides the additional benefit of reducing electron donor demand over the life of the project. Some estimates indicate a 50% reduction in substrate demand, more than offsetting the cost of the Gas inFusion technology and its application. The dissolved gas enriched water is added to EDS-ER as a dilution fluid, used as chase water, recirculation water, or as precondition waters for bioaugmentation culture.

Make the ultimate upgrade to Tersus Environmental, featuring EDS-ER™ – the next evolution in emulsified vegetable oil (EVO) for enhanced bioremediation.

Complimentary Site Evaluation
Tersus Environmental provides technical solutions to challenges faced by the soil and groundwater remediation community. We offer technical expertise on a variety of technologies and are not focused on any single solution.

inVentures’ green and sustainable technologies featured in 14 Platform and Poster Sessions. Its Gas inFusion technologies for the remediation of groundwater will be widely highlighted during ‘The Bioremediation and Sustainable Environmental Technologies Symposium ‘ being held June 27-30 in Reno, Nevada. The featured groundwater remediation technologies are based on the worldwide-patented Gas inFusion technology, which allows for supersaturated levels of dissolved gas into liquids.

A comprehensive summary of the papers highlighting our technologies is available as a pdf file at this link.  Some highlights include presentations in these important disciplines, and their associated Abstract Titles:

  • A1. Improvements to Subsurface Delivery Strategies, Visualization of NAPL Source-Zone Remediation by Gas – Supersaturated Water Injection (SWI).M.A. Ioannidis,F. Moebius, and D. Or.  Marios Ioannidis (University of Waterloo/Canada)
  • D2. Fate and Persistence of Endocrine Disruptors and Emerging Contaminants That Threaten Aquatic Environments, Solar-Powered Gas Infusion System for Enhancing In Situ Bioremediation of N-Nitrosodimethylamine in Groundwater.P.B. Hatzinger, D. Lippincott, J.F. Begley, and S.L. Brock. Paul B. Hatzinger (Shaw Environmental, Inc./USA)

Tersus Environmental is hosting a booth at the conference. Please come visit us at booth # 403. For additional information, contact  Aaron Archibald at 647.477.2394, your local iSOC Technical Sales Representation or me at 919.638.7892.

After nearly 12 years with Solutions-IES / EOS Remediation, I have elected to move on.  This month I joined Tersus Environmental as Managing Partner.   In this new role, I will lead the company’s engagement with inVentures Technologies.   Earlier, inVentures Technologies and Tersus Environmental announced a strategic alliance based on a shared vision for developing innovative sustainable green technologies for the remediation of soil and groundwater.

I have always been impressed with inVentures’ leadership in the area of Gas inFusion technologies (more at iSOC® info and gPRO® info) .  The quality of inVentures’ people, their novel proven patented technologies, as well as their consistent focus on good science and best business practices, attracted me.   I am delighted to be part of Tersus Environmental and our representation of inVentures Technologies as we move forward with the convergence of Gas inFusion technology and in situ remediation technologies to solve the most challenging environmental problems.

inVentures Technologies and Tersus Environmental Form Strategic Alliance to Develop & Market Innovative Sustainable Green Technologies

The convergence of Gas inFusion technology and in situ remediation technologies took a significant step forward today as inVentures Technologies and Tersus Environmental announced a strategic alliance based on a shared vision for developing innovative sustainable green technologies for the remediation of soil and groundwater. By engaging the companies at the technology, marketing and business levels, the alliance will allow both companies to provide the best biotechnology-based solutions to effectively manage complex, challenging environmental liabilities; reducing costs for site closure; and improving customer service.

Under the terms of the agreement, Tersus Environmental  will provide global sales management and marketing services for inVentures Technologies groundwater remediation business which includes the world class iSOC® Gas inFusion technology.  Tersus Environmental will assume management responsibilities for inVentures worldwide network of sales representatives, giving it one of the largest sales forces in the industry and allowing it to service the groundwater remediation community with efficiency and local expertise.

Evaluation of corrective actions designed to enhance biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons and fuel oxygenates should include chemical, geochemical, and microbiological lines of evidence. Monitoring and analysis of trends in dissolved benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene (BTEX) and methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) concentrations are routinely used to document contaminant loss and provide an indicator of enhanced biodegradation. Likewise, monitoring geochemical parameters to document changes in availability of electron acceptors such as dissolved oxygen (DO) can provide a second indicator of enhanced biodegradation. However, the potentially most direct line of evidence to evaluate the ability of a remediation technology to stimulate biodegradation is to quantify the specific genes encoding enzymes responsible for biodegradation of the contaminants of concern. Overall, traditional groundwater analyses combined with monitoring gene expression provided the three lines of evidence needed to evaluate the effectiveness of enhanced aerobic bioremediation at a site.
