Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PIPERSVILLE, Pa. - Mar 23, 2017 - Tersus Environmental, LLC (Tersus) and Provectus Environmental Products, Inc. (PEP) announced today they have entered into a patent licensing agreement granting Tersus with a non-exclusive sublicense to the Innovative Environmental Technologies, Inc. (IET) United States Patent Nos. 7,531,709 and 7,129,388 (the ‘709 and ‘388 patents).
This Agreement enables Tersus to develop and commercialize products for in situ chemical reduction (ISCR). Tersus’ newest product, MicroEVO™ ISCR, is composed of controlled-release water mixable oil (EDS-ER™) and ZVI particles used for the in situ treatment of groundwater and saturated soil. The incorporation of ZVI enhances chlorinated contaminant remediation by enabling various chemical reduction pathways.
Provectus is the exclusive licensee of IET’s ‘709 and ‘388 patents that provides under claim 1.:
1. A method for accelerated anaerobic dechlorination of subsoil matter, comprising the steps of: supplying a mixture including a zero valent metal into soil pathways to biologically react with the dissolved chlorinated solvents in the groundwater; and supplying an organic hydrogen donor into the soil pathways to produce dechlorinating conditions such that indigenous anaerobic bacteria biodegrade residual concentrations of chlorinated solvents.
“We are pleased to have added Tersus to our growing list of sub-licensees”, said Michael Scalzi, CEO, Provectus; President, IET. “Our position has been to share this technology across the environmental remediation industry, at a nominal cost, so that the most efficient and proven process for the degradation of chlorinated solvents in groundwater may be utilized by as many practitioners as possible. The addition of Tersus, an environmental market leader in technology offerings, as a supplier of products utilizing the 709′ technology will allow for more widespread application of this proven technology.”
“We appreciate IET’s willingness to share this technology. This license agreement with Provectus enables us to further expand our family of products for chlorinated solvent remediation,” says Tersus’ Managing Partner, Gary Birk. “By combining our market leading self-emulsifying oils with ZVI particles gives Tersus customers the best technology-based solutions to manage complex, challenging environmental liabilities and reduce costs for site closure.”
