Hello and welcome to this edition of Business World News Spotlight on Success. We take you around the world, into boardrooms and out on job site locations to see how different companies are finding new and innovative answers to modern problems and situations.

In this special Spotlight on Success edition, we're going to take a look at one of the growing concerns of our modern life: pollution and how to clean up some of the world's most deadly contaminants: heavy metals.

The biggest environmental offenders out there are chromium, mercury , and lead. That unholy trio is terrorizing industry and in the end, making our world a more hazardous place to be. And the problems… the pollutants are piling up. What can be done?

Richard Runco SOT:

We need new technologies and Solucorp, is offering solutions with its three subsidiaries each handling its own area of expertise.

Here's more on their innovative and exciting solutions to our heavy metals problems.


Look around our world: everywhere you turn, pollution is piling up. Our planet is filthy. It's becoming dirtier every day with some of the worst pollutants coming from industrial heavy metals that fill our air and empty into our water and onto our land. Eventually pollutants get into our food supply and put our health at risk. With the damage compounding every moment of every day, what is the best way to clean up the mess we're in? One company is offering new and better solutions: Solucorp Industries is an environmental solutions company, publicly traded with the technologies to help industry and consumers remediate their existing heavy metals wastes or to prevent future heavy metals pollution from occurring.

(SOT: Richard Runco, Solucorp

“We're very excited about the future. We're excited about what we, here at Solucorp can bring to the world. A lot of people out there worry about our future because of the pollution that we've produced in the last couple of hundred years in our industrial revolution. But we've got answers here at Solucorp that revolutionize that outlook!

Theismann SOT:

We can stop heavy metal pollution from getting worse. And not only can we prevent future pollution, but we've got the technology to undo past damage, the potential to help industry and communities clean up their past damage, and look forward to a cleaner, less polluted tomorrow. And we're excited to tell you about those possibilities right now. )

And Solucorp President Richard Runco is not the only one excited about the possibilities. Environmentalists are also thrilled at the science behind Solucorp's patented technologies, including a former NFL Great who now provides enthusiasm and leadership on environmentalism at Solucorp, retired Washington Redskins Quarterback, Joe Theismann.

(SOT: Joe Theismann, Football Hall of Famer & Environmentalist

“I am thrilled to be working with the team at Solucorp. For decades, we have lacked leadership and direction on how to go about cleaning up our environment. We've all talked about the problem a lot, now it's time to take action.

We've seen the government tests showing our land, air and water is getting more polluted. We've seen the demand on industries to clean up its act. We've been told as consumers to start recycling and look for ways to stop polluting. But we really haven't been offered the kind of answers that we could all get behind. (cont'd below)

Reporter track:

Here at Solucorp, we've found answers for cleaning up the heavy metals problems that already exist. We have technology for cleaning up the land, the water, even some of our air pollution problems. The team I'm on now can even help us stop so many kinds of pollution in the future. I'm on this team because I see Solucorp taking the lead on making heavy metals pollution a thing of the past, and I'm proud to say that I know that together we can solve the biggest environmental problems we face right now as a planet.”)

Solucorp offers cost effective, permanent solutions for contamination in soils and water, caused by heavy metals pollution, but also provides technology integration into consumer products which will prevent pollution from occurring by making manufactured products self-remediating preventing pollution at the source.

One example of Solucorp's work dealt with a 26-acre plot of land, The Ocean State Steel site in East Providence , Rhode Island . The site had been abandoned for 10 years, due to metals contamination and its location on the beautiful Seaconk River for fear of spreading the metals into the river. The land was generating little if any collectable taxes. The town of East Providence signed an agreement with a New York-based company GeoNova Development, to demolish and remediate the site using Solucorp's patented Molecular Bonding System or MBS technology to undo more than a century of heavy metals contamination.

Question for Ceccacci:

Tell us about the Ocean State Steel site project?

(SOT: Ed Ceccacci, SITE MANAGER: “In January 2004, we first began the project at the Ocean State Steel Site. We successfully treated the contaminated soil with the MBS ® slurry which was applied using dual chamber compressed air pumps to spray the slurry mix on to stock piles of different types of contaminated soil. The MBS process offered substantial savings oin cleanup costs because we didn't transport and dispose of the hazardous soil off site and then have to replace it with imported fill. We turn heavy metals into stabilized metallic sulfides, which are no longer leachable and therefore non-hazardous. The once useless site is ready for reuse and redevelopment. The plan is to build commercial space for restaurants, shops, offices, parking and a marina. In addition to much needed housing in the form of single-family houses, town homes, and multiple family units. They've got great redevelopment potential here because of our technology. The city of East Providence is overjoyed at the fact that with the help of Solucorp's technology, this piece of property that was essentially dead, is becoming something that will bring enjoyment, not to mention millions of dollars of future property taxes from something that before, was just an eye sore.)

Look at the site now. Cleaned up, property values up and new projects planned to go up on the formerly contaminated site. This location to moving forward with new projects and new residents.

(SOT: East Providence City Manager: :15-25 “We're very pleased. The cleanup that GeoNova performed at Ocean State Steel was nothing short of a miracle in our minds. We were very pleased with the technology used and the results we enjoy. That property is now going into development with our citizens enjoying the benefits, and the city seeing tax benefits for years to come.”)

And East Providence isn't alone in its praise of Solucorp. The federal government's Environmental Protection Agency has evaluated the MBS technology through its Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation or SITE Program in Midvale, Utah.


The Midvale Slag Superfund Site was contaminated from foundry and smelting operations that began in the 1871 and continued until 1992. The EPA demonstration required Solucorp to treat 500 tons of three different types of waste streams contaminated with arsenic, cadmium, and lead--the “bad boys” of the metals contamination world.

These wastes were treated ex-situ or “out of the ground” using a pug mill system which is made up of four parts: an industrial waste feed hopper, a variable speed conveyor, an MBS storage silo and the pug mill. After screening for oversize material and debris, the hazardous soil is loaded into the hopper where it is conveyed into the pug mill.

ON CAM WITH Ceccacci:

The conveyor belt controls the speed at which the pug mill processes.

The patented MBS chemical reagents are fed simultaneously into the pug mill from the chemical storage silo.

The pug mill mixes the soil or other contaminated waste together using a series of twin shafted paddles. If needed, water is injected into the pug mill to allow for mass transfer to occur and a homogeneous blend of the materials.

NATS: :02 water running

The water also helps keep contaminated dusts from rising. The treated material exits the pug mill and runs up a conveyor that moves the material into a stockpile for confirmatory testing. Random samples were taken off the conveyor and mixed into one uniform representative sample to be tested for Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure.

These “TCLP” analyses confirmed that the waste streams met the non-hazardous cleanup levels for arsenic, lead and cadmium. The results showed that the MBS technology successfully stabilized all three wastes allowing them to be disposed of as a non-hazardous waste. Final report: Solucorp saves money across the board.

(Site manager SOT/other scientist: :30 “We were very pleased with our EPA testing, both the way it proceeded and the results from several angles. We successfully treated 1500 tons of wastes that had multiple metals contamination.

After treatment, the stabilized soils can be reused on-site as fill, cover, contour or road bed base material.

Richard Runco question: Talk to us about MBS?

(Ceccacci oncam contd)

Reporter track:

Richard Runco on cam SOT:

The EPA SITE program provided us with a unique, independent platform by which our technology could be independently evaluated. It was great to show our technology to the EPA, to really prove ourselves to industry and the environmental community and showcase all the aspects of MBS that make it really the future of heavy metal remediation. And the bottom line was excellent. Our treatment costs were 30% lower than our closest competitor. Plus afterward, the materials could be disposed of at a regular, nonhazardous landfill. We have proven we can save clients money both on the front end and the back..)

State of the art patented M-B-S is the most efficient and cost effective technology available for stabilizing heavy metals contamination in soils, sludges, slags, sediments, ashes, and baghouse dusts; all key problems facing American industry and its past and future impact on our environment. And MBS treatments can be performed in-situ--in the ground, ex-situ or in-line--installed into a manufacturing process.

(Richard Runco SOT: :25 “The Molecular Bonding System is the keystone of our technology at Solucorp. It offers a permanent solution to these problems. There have been other choices for treatment of these heavy metals in the past, but they always had problems. They usually involved adding a large amount of cement to try to stabilize the heavy metals, but that meant doubling or even tripling the amount of hazardous material to be disposed of. The wastes were still considered hazardous and had to be disposed of at a hazardous materials

waste site, but now they were at least double in volume and weight, plus these solutions aren't permanent. MBS is permanent, tested to 1000 years, so you bet we're excited about the possibilities of helping industry clean up after itself.”)

MBS is a permanent remediation technology that addresses heavy metal problems, like (editor's note: please use graphic list) arsenic, barium, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, nickel, selenium, thallium, and zinc.

ON CAMERA STANDUP: “Most of these metals are extremely well-known, well-documented hazards to human health. Arsenic, of course, is a known poison. Chromium, believed to cause brain, respiratory and nerve damage. Lead, a poison previously used in paint can stunt development in children and cause cancer in adults; and mercury, is particularly harmful to developing fetuses and causes serious brain and nerve damage. Nobody wants these chemicals and dangerous metals leaching into our environment but so far, industry has been helpless to fix the problems. So how does MBS work?”

(SOT: Noel Spindler :45)

MBS contains a series of proprietary chemicals we refer to as “reagents.” The reagents mix in with heavy metal pollutants like lead, cadmium, chromium, mercury and zinc in the affected areas and react at the molecular level to convert the heavy metals into metal sulfides, which is a metals most insoluble form, effectively stopping the heavy metals from leaching pollution into soil and groundwater forever.)

Reporter track:

Let's look at another real life example: Oceana , West Virginia .

This particular site was contaminated with lead. The source of the contamination was copper wires, burning over a 20 year period. Tires had been used to keep the fires hot, causing elevated TPH, the Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons, the organic contaminants that come from fuel oils and gasolines, in addition to the hazardous levels of lead. By the time Solucorp was called in, the site was covered in a muddy, copper ash.

NATS: heavy equipment engines: :02

Solucorp's mobile equipment was set up here at the bottom of a mountainside, next to a highway. The remediation took only ten days to complete in spite of the 20 years involved in piling up the pollutants. Solucorp technicians endured severe weather including 2 feet of snow and subfreezing temperatures, while managing to treat an average of 300 treated tons per day. The results?

(Noel SOT: “Our independent state certified laboratory tests showed lead levels were reduced from 62 mg/l to fractional and non-detectable levels. We're very pleased with these results. We have successfully cleaned up a site that was an environmental concern to the community for many years and a real eyesore.” :20-25)

MBS treatment can be applied on site as in the West Virginia project, providing significant cost savings versus transportation and disposal as a hazardous waste. And MBS adds a mass increase of only 3-5 percent on average, that's substantially less than other treatments.

And since it can be treated on site, in or out of the ground, there's no expensive moving off site. After treatment, the now non-hazardous waste can be taken to a non-hazardous site at $20 to 35 per ton. Contrast that to the cost of transporting and disposing of hazardous wastes: $120 to 200 per ton. All of these things mean MBS is highly cost effective and in fact, less expensive.

MBS is effective over a broad treatment range of pH. This means that the technology works just as effectively anywhere between a pH range of 1 to 12. Other technologies only work in limited pH ranges because they rely on alkalinity buffer to stabilize the waste or because they are soluble outside of a certain pH range. This means that MBS can treat many more types of waste streams successfully without limitation. And it can treat multiple metals all at the same time, in any type of matrix. But how long does the treatment take? Is there more to making the chemical reaction happen? There is good news there as well: the MBS reaction occurs immediately on contact after the patented compound is added to hazardous waste.

There is no curing time. And the MBS treated material is unchanged in its physical characteristics meaning that it looks the same before and after treatment with an average of only 3 percent more weight added.

The EPA, in its demonstration bulletin, concluded that the hazardous wastes leachable concentration in each of three wastes was reduced to less than the regulatory limit. They also noted that the cost of treatment was estimated at approximately sixteen dollars per ton of waste.

(reporter track contd)

Other kinds of treatment now in use cost a lot more because they require a larger amount of reagent to be added to the waste. Since landfill fees are based on weight; imagine how much an addition of cement to a waste pile increases the removal and disposal fees. MBS does not materially change the physical qualities or quantities of the wastes at sites.

The MBS technology has successfully passed the EPA's Multiple Extraction Procedure or MEP test further which replicates the effects of advanced weathering for 1,000 years. And the federal government's EPA is not the only one that thinks so. States are now accepting the technology as “approved for use” in treatment of hazardous heavy metal wastes representing a “breakthrough” since they previously required expensive hazardous waste landfill disposal.

The M-B-S technology has already been successfully used on dozens of sites around the world. One international example is Italy, where as of July 1, 2005, the European Union instituted new legislation outlawing transportation and disposal of metal contaminated soils, sludges and manufactured products into hazardous waste landfills, setting up the M-B-S technology to gain a significant market share of the heavy metals remediation work moving forward.

Now, the Italian company, Ambiente, will use Solucorp's M-B-S technology to clean up hazardous heavy metal contaminated sites, throughout Italy , saving the manufacturers and the country millions of dollars. The result?

And MBS treatment allows for beneficial reuse of the stabilized waste. Treated soils can be used as cover, fill, contour or roadbed base material. Think of all the roads that could be built on treated waste from lots like this one?”)

That's how Solucorp's Molecular Bonding System is helping government and industry to clean up its past problem. But now let's look at how it can help all of us keep our world cleaner: through offering it's preventative Integrated Fixation System for use by industry in putting environmentally friendly or “green” self-remediating products on the market, in the business world and in our homes.

( Joe Theismann: Football Hall of Famer & Environmentalist :20

“This is what's so exciting about Solucorp. It's a team of environmentalists, engineers, and scientists that see a leadership role that is so needed. They are excited about working on cleaning up the environment, and also working with other companies in building environmentally safe products. These products offer the manufacturer the same quality of product performance, but in addition have a positive, preventative, non-pollution impact on the environment and help clean up the problems already here. All of us want to leave a better planet for generations to come.”)

Question for Noel:

How does IFS accomplish this?

Reporter on camera standup:

Noel Spindler on-cam SOT:

And Solucorp's pollution and heavy metals contamination applications available through subsidiary, Integrated Fixation Systems or IFS offer the premiere technology for creating these safer, greener pollution-preventative products for both industry and consumers. They conceive of these preventions being built into manufactured products and preventing pollution at its source. For example, millions of household nicad or lead-acid batteries, computers with their metal-laden hard drives and other modern disposables, could someday no longer impact the environment after their useful life.

IFS works by incorporating MBS's reagents into a variety of applications, known as the IFS RE-ME-DI-ATE product line, such as: paint strippers, mercury emission slurries, paint booth filters and haz metal packing chips using various types of release systems like films, coatings, inks and gels. IFS can be added to multitudes of products during manufacture to preventing pollution.

(Noel: ”IFS integrates the technology into the manufacture of products to make them self-remediating, environmentally friendly “Green”. In IFS products, the MBS technology remains dormant during the working life of the product. And in the case of some products, like batteries or ammunitions, it doesn't take action until the product starts to degrade. But if the pollution starts to make its way out, the IFS integration mechanism stops it by remediating the heavy metals as it makes contact, rendering it non-hazardous and safe to the environment.”)

Noel Spindler SOT:

Reporter track:

I-F-S technology can be used in many different types or products or applications. In fact, it's already in the marketplace or available for development in these products or product applications: strippers, munitions, filters, packing chips, blasting additive, blocks, coatings, bullet traps, gels, inks, laminated bags or sacks, laminated films and liners, pellets, powders, slurries, spikes and wrappers. But let's talk real world and what's out there right now.

For example, Solucorp's I-F-S RE-ME-DI-ATE paint stripper. Lead paint was used to cover residential and commercial buildings up until the 1970's. The same paint is still being used on bridges, military equipment and ships.

(Noel SOT: The hazards of having lead paint in buildings or other commercial and residential applications have been linked to problems with children's development or behavior. The removal process is also dangerous for those doing it. That's because the lead dust is still toxic in nature and if inhaled particularly regularly and over long periods, it can cause serious health problems. Even short term, it's just not something we want people exposed to.”)

Traditionally, lead paint removal has been a long, difficult and potentially hazardous process for workers. The chemicals are harsh, and become more toxic as the process continues. The resulting paint chips and dust are poisonous, too.

But I-F-S RE-ME-DI-ATE paint stripper developed by Solucorp takes just one application.

With just that one use, it can both successfully strip and stabilize hazardous lead-based paint. The paint comes up and off the surface to be safely disposed of as a non-hazardous waste at non-hazardous material landfills. Studies have shown that most consumers prefer and will actually pay a little more for “green products” with less risk involved in their use and eventual disposal.

(Reporter on camera:

Contractors save money because the formerly hazardous lead in the paint has been isolated and stabilized. It's now insoluble; no longer able to leach into soil, water, or even air in the form of dust. And any wastes can be disposed of at a non- hazardous landfill at a much lower cost.)

Another example, consider the billions of batteries that operate our world: a significant portion using either reactive lead acid or Ni-Cd. But once these batteries are spent, they need to be properly disposed of. Currently they are recycled or disposed of in landfills with a significant portion being illegally dumped. These batteries start to degrade or corrode almost instantly from exposure to the elements. The acid inside of them corrodes their outer casing and starts to leach into any nearby ecosystems and pollute water tables. That pollution which threatens our ecosystems could be ended here and now by integrating IFS into the batteries during the manufacture process.

Integrating the IFS technology into the manufacturers' designs of the batteries whether as a coating, wrapper or block allows the preventative technology to prevent the migration of any heavy metal contaminants without affecting battery life.

Question for Noel Spindler: How does IFS technology work to prevent pollution, with regard to batteries?

(NOEL SPINDLER SOT: :25 “Integrated Fixation Systems utilize our patented Molecular Bonding Systems. We build the MBS technology into the product, such as paint stripper, or probably the most common application would be batteries. We put the technology into wrappers on the outside of the battery. The product looks the same and works exactly the same, but when it's time to get rid of the used battery, its hazardous inner materials come with their own environmental protection, built in. They're ready for recycling or to go to a non-hazardous materials landfill.”)

IFS can also be put inside the battery in the form of blocks. Neither application changes the battery's performance and when the battery's life cycle ends, the I-F-S technology will prevent leaching of the hazardous contaminants contained within the cell, in the event the battery cell is breached or corroded allowing leakage. These wrappers can be custom designed to fit any type or size Ni-Cd battery for any application. The IFS blocks would be used between the outer casing and the inner casing of lead acid batteries acting in a similar fashion to the wrappers. The IFS products would not affect the ability to recycle the batteries at a smelter while completely eliminating the “age-old” problem “collateral pollution” from needed energy producing batteries.

ON CAMERA: “And IFS will also help with one of modern life's fastest growing questions: how to properly dispose of last year's computer when this year's new model arrives? By lining bags with the IFS technology and creating a coating that would go directly onto the CPU motherboard as it is being manufactured, used computers are prevented from adding to the contamination problems of our landfills. And, think of the potential savings because we all know how many computers are disposed of throughout the world: millions!

Noel Spindler question:

What is the problem with current packing materials and what is the solution that Solucorp offers?

Reporter track:

Noel Spindler on cam SOT:

Why would anyone take the risk or assume the liability of shipping a metal containing product without using IFS RE-ME-DI-ATE Haz-Metal Packing Chips. This packing popcorn is specially made, impregnated with the MBS technology. By using the IFS Packing Chips you can have the security and piece of mind to know that should the contents of your package get damaged in transit, the contaminants inside will never get out of the shipping container. If there is a breach, the IFS chips will act both as an absorbent and as a treatment. Once the metals make contact with the chips, the technology will remediate the metals contained, removing any liability. And after they've been used, they're welcome additions to most landfills since they remediate on contact dormant metals which were already in the landfill. More than just the industrial user might happy to hear that.

(Noel Spindler: SOT: :15 “Modern product shipments can often be hazardous things, the cost is high because of all the safety precautions that have to be taken. That adds to the cost of doing business. But Solucorp has an answer there, too. Integrated Fixation Systems, IFS packing chips could be one more way to lower the risk of those contaminations. We all want to lower our risk these days, but that's not all. After the shipment is complete, those IFS packing chips can be considered for what they are: carriers of MSB technology that can assist landfills by bonding to any other heavy metal contaminants which are already in the landfill, and neutralizing their ability to leach into the water table and soils.

Disposing of them would actually be helping the landfill. You don't have to be a scientist to know that all of us would prefer to be sending helpful things to the landfill, instead of just more waste.”)

Now let's talk about one of the biggest most damaging current environmental problems out there. One of today's most talked about environment problems involves mercury emissions from coal fire furnace plants. These plants are the largest contributor to mercury contamination. The EPA and the US government have been battling over how to best reduce mercury emissions into the environmental. The polluters are saying that there is no solution to this problem of reducing mercury emissions by more than 90%.

(Reporter on camera: “But Solucorp has developed an IFS slurry application that would be injected into the flue gas stream to reduce both elemental and non-elemental mercury. The slurry would interact with the mercury emission in a spray mist form converting the mercury into a mercuric sulfide, which is the metal's most insoluble form. In addition to reducing the mercury emissions, there is the added benefit that the IFS Slurry will also remediate the ash residue that is also produced during the processing operation.”)

(Joel Theismann SOT: :30 “MBS and IFS is particularly affective in dealing with mercury emissions, especially because no other technology for dealing completely with this problem exist. You can see why I'm so excited to be part of this team. Using

Solucorp technology, during the process to prevent the pollution from forming,can save these coal fire furnace plants from creating additional problems for cleanup. Solucorp is going to lead the way in cleaning up our world for generations to come.”)

Another major development by Solucorp in the area of pollution prevention is the development of a self-remediating filter for paint booths. Currently, paint booths which are used to paint aircrafts and other vehicles use a paint that contains chromium. Afterwards, the filters used are a hazardous waste because they contain leachable levels of chromium above the regulatory limits. Solucorp has been able to integrate the MBS technology through its IFS delivery system into the paint booth filter during the manufacture process. As the paint residue is being captured during the painting process, the MBS reagents are released from their dormant state to immediately render the chromium contained in the paint insoluble, making it non-hazardous. Stabilizing these paint booth filters virtually makes this type hazardous waste obsolete and saves the industry millions in disposal costs while at the same time, removing the liability associated with producing the hazardous material.

(Reporter on camera: “IFS has many other uses and applications as well that can be customized to meet industry and use specific needs. It is available in more than just the configurations we've discussed, including blocks, coatings, filters, munitions, mercury emission slurries, bullet traps, gels, inks, laminated bags, films, and liners.”)

We've talked about Solucorp's patented MBS technology for treatment of heavy metal contaminated solids and its IFS technology for pollution prevention from heavy metal containing products. Is there a Solucorp answer for the earth's contaminated waters? Yes, and it's found at Waste Innovation Technology Solutions, WITS for short, a Solucorp subsidiary, where environmental and technological leadership are shining through.

(Joe Theismann, “Solucorp has a team of companies going here. We have a treatment for heavy metal contaminated wastes with MBS. We have effective pollution prevention products available with IFS. And at WITS, we have the rest of the story: wastewater treatment technology for the future. It'sthisa team approach that will make Solucorp a champion in Environmental Cleanups.”)

WITS incorporated is capable of supplying package systems to treat wastewater contamination as low as 20 gallons per minute and up to 200 gallons a minute per package system. Installing and operating more than one system could achieve greater flow, but first, let's find out how WITS works. Bill Seagraves is President of WITS.

( Bill Seagraves: “WITS uses electro-coagulation to remove many type to remove undesirable contaminants. Electrocoagulation is not new; the technology itself has been around for about 100 years. But we found a way to increase its efficiency, productivity, and therefore, it's cost-effectiveness by making it a vertical plate system which increases removal

rates and lowers capital and operating costs. We've re-made it into cutting edge technology that is ready to deal with the increasing demands of keeping the planet clean. And we're seeing it go into action at various locations around the country, helping clean those areas with an effectiveness never before seen in this industry.” :30)

Problems with wastewater contamination are not easily solved. Treatment plants operate using several basic systems, including a settling tank, with a skimmer to remove floating contaminants on the top, and a solids removal device on bottom. But neither system removes the heavy metals as oxides such as cadmium, arsenic, copper, and cyanide, to name a few. That's where electro-coagulation comes in.

(Bill Seagraves: “Simply put, electro-coagulation is a process of forcing water through a specially-built pressurized chamber. These chambers, full of plates and spacers are then electrified, forming a sort of magnet when electrified, attracting the heavy metals and organics together to form what is called a “flock.” The flocks or sludges are then removed in a clarifier.”)

(Reporter on camera standup: “This updated technology is going to be very necessary, in the future. We've all noticed what's going on: the further science progresses, the more things we're being told are hazardous to human health. As a result, the government's regulations get tighter and tighter.

Industry and local municipalities have to have better, improved technology to meet the demand. And WITS has increased efficiency of cleanup, while at the same time, holding costs down even lowering them.”)

How does it do that?

(Bill Seagraves: “We discovered a new way of positioning the parts inside the electro-coagulation chambers. By initially positioning the plates differently, and reversing the polarity, we found we could extend the plate wear. We also provide power conversion ten times more efficiently. All of this combines to cut the costs of using our product by as much as 40 percent. Overtime, those savings can really add up.”)

One example: a municipal wastewater treatment plant in Keysville , Virginia where the city planned to update its current system by building an addition to the plant. The city's engineers discovered the best way to do that was to add a WITS system.

(Bill Seagraves: :35 We wanted to re-circulate waste waters that weren't fully cleaned at the end of the process, but we discovered because of copper contamination, we couldn't do that. We had to remove the heavy metal first. So we checked into the technologies available and found WITS was going to best address our needs. We put the construction project out for bids, but Solucorp and WITS were listed as component parts that were specified for our project.”)

(Seagraves: :20 “We're very excited and pleased to have WITS on board, because operating their plant is less expensive, but also because we expect to dispose of our formerly hazardous metals problem in the form of treated, stabilized insoluble metals in a sludge that can be taken to our non-hazardous landfill. We're expecting to save hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions over the life of our newly expanded wastewater treatment plant. And we feel like we're doing good things for our environment, at the same time. Which always feels good.”)

Other pluses: WITS process also kills dangerous biologicals; viruses, bacteria, cysts and other microorganisms in the water, such as fecal coliform and salmonella. It removes charged colloids, both organic and inorganic, and excises significant amounts of other ions, colloids, and other emulsions. The process breaks oil emulsions, and removes contaminants, while reducing or completely eliminating the need for chemical additives.

(WITS President, Bill Seagraves: “It's an extremely beneficial process for treating wastewater, removing all sorts of contaminants and killing other biologicals that are in our wastewater. And WITS works without adding anything that you'll have to deal with on the backend. It's common knowledge that if you add a pound of chemicals on the front end, you're going to get at least a pound of chemicals that you have to deal with at process completion. At the very least, you have to dispose of the extra weight, in an expensive hazardous materials disposal area. With WITS, you don't have that problem at all: no added chemicals added. :25)

WITS currently targets its use for four key areas: food and beverage industry wastewater, automotive/metal processing discharges, recyclable water recovery, and phosphorous removal.

(Noel Spindler: We think WITS can really help people in these areas and we're excited about them because our technologies have always focused on the non-aqueous side of things, now we have a technology for treating wastewaters to compliment the others. The WITS EC technology is a cut above the rest in the field of electro-coagulation and we are here to let everyone know about it so they can make more intelligent, responsible decisions.…..” :25)

But WITS expects to expand its offerings in the future, reaching out to provide its significant benefits to sludge processors, combined sewer overflows, industrial pretreatment, offshore oil rigs, livestock industry and food processors. WITS is a relatively new addition to the Solucorp success story, and new areas and new contracts for its use are being negotiated every day.

(Richard Runco: :20 “WITS came under the Solucorp umbrella because their EC technology was a cut above the rest of the waste water treatment technologies. This makes it an ideal part of the Solucorp team. We offer only the best technologies to industry and consumers. The majority of our planet is covered with water. WITS fits right in with our plan to be The Leaders in providing remediation and pollution prevention technologies. The three prong approach of Solucorp, with its MBS®, IFS, and WITS are the answers for the future. (cont'd)

Solucorp is poised to be the leader in heavy metals remediation on land and in water for the future. Their technology can usher in a new era of treatment that will open the door for a safer, less hazardous environment into the next millennium.

(Joe Theismann: We are the team with the leading, cutting edge technology to handle the biggest environmental issues. We have solutions that will stand a thousand years. We are not only improving the environment; we're also improving the costs of having a cleaner environment. Now we're ready to clean up out planet for a better quality of life for ourselves, our children, and our childrens' children. Because isn't that what really matters the most? The future is Solucorp.”)


“What we've seen are just some of the uses of Solucorp's environmentally friendly (green) technologies. There will undoubtedly be more, as industry takes notice that there are efficacious, cost effective choices for heavy metals remediation, heavy metals pollution prevention and wastewater remediation.
