BATH, NH--(Marketwire - May 21, 2010) - MOP Environmental Solutions, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MOPN) is pleased to announce APDProyectos Cia Ltda, the Exclusive Distributor for MOP Environmental's oil recovery products in Ecuador and Peru, has just confirmed with great enthusiasm the arrival of their first 40 ft container of MOP products manufactured and shipped from MOP Environmental's Bath, NH manufacturing facility.

Charles Diamond, MOP Environmental President and CEO, stated, "If you've been following our progress you may recall that earlier this year, Executives from APDProyectos Cia Ltda visited our MOP plant in Bath, NH where they were shown MOP's newest oil-contaminated-soil cleanup equipment, termed MOP®-RESCUE™ (Rapid Environmental Spill Clean Up Equipment), in action. The Principals of the company witnessed the process and equipment RAPIDLY, REMOVE the oil, CLEAN the soil, and RECOVER the oil, from all types of oil saturated soil with each batch completed in less than 10 minutes. After the demonstration APDProyectos Cia Ltda committed to a distributorship for Ecuador and Peru, together with their first 40 foot container order."

"So what's the big deal with landing a distributor in Ecuador?" asks Mr. Diamond, "Well here's the answer. The intended use of the MOP®-RESCUE™ process is to remedy the vast Ecuadorian oil spill that is primarily on land, a problem that prior to our MOP®-RESCUE™ technology, has been without an answer! This oil spill involves more oil than the EXXON Valdez and current Gulf of Mexico oil spills. The damage was caused from 18 billion gallons of spilled oil and liquid hydrocarbons that covers 1,700 square miles. The challenges of oil spill remediation in Ecuador will conclusively establish, once and for all, the uniqueness, effectiveness and essential importance of both our MOP Maximum Oil Pickup and the new MOP®-RESCUE technology( ) as the quintessential oil spill remediation technique for effective remediation of the largest and most problematic of oil spills on our planet."

Mr. Diamond continued by saying, "Even as we continue to negotiate with major parties in the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill and add additional representatives on the ground in the Gulf area, the significance of our unique product is gaining important political attention. We are also keeping an eye on expanding our business opportunities in the international arena. This container load to our distributor in Ecuador, plus ongoing efforts in Baku, Azerbaijan, is anticipated to bolster our efforts and recognition, helping us to open up more international markets for our MOP line of products."

Mr. Diamond also cited recent distribution agreements presently being negotiated for Nigeria, Malaysia, and Ghana as well as India, China and, Indonesia. He also stated, "We have a solid product that is clearly the best of its class in a multi billion dollar market. MOP easily demonstrates its superiority and with our new MOP®-RESCUE technology( ) and due to the recent oil spill in the Gulf, our days are filled with much new domestic and international interest."

"The Ecuadorians learned of us from an article in the Official Publication of The Society of Petroleum Engineers that explains our profitable, holistic approach to oil-spill cleanup. Stay tuned! We contend that our new MOP®-RESCUE™ process is destined to be recognized as the fastest, lowest cost method to remediate oil-contaminated soil, accomplishing on-site, a complete restoration of the land's value for agricultural, recreational, or commercial use. Our MOP® sorbent product works in unison with our new MOP®-RESCUE (Provisional Patent Filed), technology," said Diamond, noting, "The time is right for our new technology to be recognized and funded in time to thoroughly and quickly RESCUE the beaches along the Gulf Coast should the need arise."

MOP Environmental Sets Precedent by Lowering Prices on its Recyclable Oil Recovery Booms for use in Gulf Oil Spill

MOP Environmental Sets Precedent by Lowering Prices on its Recyclable Oil Recovery Booms for use in Gulf Oil Spill

ANNOUNCING THE ULTIMATE NATIONAL OIL SPILL CONTINGENCY PLAN

BATH, NH, May 13, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- MOP Environmental Solutions, Inc. (MOPN.PK). In the wake of demand driven price hikes, MOP Environmental is setting a precedent by lowering prices on their Recyclable Oil Recovery Booms (MOP Booms) to assist in the Gulf Oil Spill Crisis. With the growing harm to the environment each day, MOP Environmental now offers their products below a fair price to protect the fragile environment threatened by the Gulf Oil Spill.

“MOP Booms use MOP Environmental’s Patented Green Sorbent MOP 201. MOP 201 is made completely from Recycled Materials and is immune to the market fluctuations and scarcities that are driving up costs and availability of booms currently being utilized in the Gulf. MOP Booms are four times more absorbent than their competitor’s booms and is fully Recyclable after oil recovery. MOP Booms are the Responsible Environmental Choice and the most Cost-Effective and Performance-Efficient Booms on the Market.” Stated Mr. Charles Diamond, MOP Environmental Solutions President & CEO.
THE ULTIMATE OFFSHORE OIL SPILL CONTINGENCY PLAN:
Mr. Diamond continued by stating, “Booms are part of the solution. However, the fastest most effective way to clean up this spill and protect the fragile coastal ecosystems, is to blast the oil spill with our low cost, Environmentally Safe MOP “oil only” sorbent. Using our powerful MOP CANNONS. MOP can be deployed under and/or over oil spills on water, even in stormy weather. Once deployed it provides safety to aquatic life, birds, beaches, and ecosystems, completely neutralizing all the potential harmful effects of an oil spill and associated financial loss.”
Go ahead, do the math says Mr. Diamond, “One trailer load of our MOP Maximum Oil Pickup retailing at $55,000 can capture and recover up to 75,000 gallons of oil in just four hours. The oil can be retrieved for re-use at a corresponding value of about $115,000.” Just four MOP-CANNONS can stay well ahead of the oil spill of 5,000 barrels a day. MOP stops the harm, and can even change a loss into a PROFIT while safely protecting the environment. With MOP sorbent MOP-CANNONS and MOP-HARVESTOR on any offshore oilrig, you can quickly and easily neutralize an oil spill as fast as it happens… Quite simply, MOP offers the ULTIMATE OFFSHORE OIL SPILL CONTINGENCY PLAN!”

The Case for MOP in the Gulf - A Thumbnail Sketch

The Case for MOP in the Gulf
A Thumbnail Sketch
Wayne D. King,
VP MOP Environmental Solutions


Here’ is a quick detailing of the capabilities and characteristics of MOP’s ™201 & ™301 Sorbents

1. Meets EPA guidelines for certification as safe in open water. Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), sections 300.5 and 300.915(g) of the National Contingency Plan. Certification letter available.

2. Available in booms and loose sorbent (5lb and 20lb)

3. MOP's Sorbent has a pickup ration of 30-1, the highest in the industry.
This means that every pound of MOP sorbent will pick up 30 lbs of oil. A container load of 1000 bags of loose sorbent will pick up 75,000 gallons of oil. Our MOP Cannon that shoots out the sorbent can deliver a full container load onto the spill in 3 hours. Directly behind the cannon we follow with a weed skimmer that picks up the oil-laden sorbent in 4 hours.

4. MOP sorbent locks up the oil in its matrix and repels water.
It will not release that oil until it is squeezed. This means that even if oil-laden sorbent reaches land, the oil is locked up in its matrix and will lie harmless on the beach until it is scooped up using skimmers and even volunteers. In other words if the oil is contained inside the MOP sorbent, it will not harm the littoral ecosystem as oil will.

5. Up to 95% of the oil can be recoverable - cleaner than it was when spilled - from the oil-laden sorbent.
The sorbent actually filters the oil when it releases it by squeezing. Now we do not know how dispersants will affect our ability to recover the oil, but we have a backup process that uses pyrolysis to convert the oil-laden MOP into hydrogen based pyrolysis oil and bio-char fertilizer that will work even if we cannot recover the oil. Furthermore without removing the oil (if a decision is made for some reason not to try and recover the resource) Oil-laden MOP sorbent can be disposed in several environmentally sustainable ways including land farming and industrial composting. It can also be pelletized for incineration or burned as it is. Finally it can be put in a landfill, although this is the least preferred of all options. The important take-away from this is that in NO CIRCUMSTANCES does it need to be treated as a hazardous substance. It is a solid waste. (unless there are hazardous chemical in the oil from the dispersants).

6. MOP Sorbents are 100% recycled materials and fully biodegradable.
So for example, should a small amount wash up on the shore and be missed by the volunteers and cleanup crews, it will bioremediate the oil and naturally biodegrade.

7. Price Stability: The materials from which the MOP sorbent is made are classified by EPA as Recovered Materials - a very high priority item for EPA -
Recovered materials are recyclable materials that have no current pathway for commercial reuse. In other words, the transfer stations get this material in; it is recyclable; but they have no market for it. We can create a fairly large market for it. However, more important than that, this is a market where raw material prices will be very stable because we are the only ones using them. This means that while others are jacking up their prices for booms and sorbent, our prices will remain steady.

8. MOP Sorbent will NEVER sink - even when fully saturated with oil.
NOAA may have some sorbents that they are basing their judgment upon that do sink, we just can't know this, but the MOP sorbent will not sink. We have had a sample sitting on water here for more than 10 years. This means that fish and underwater habitat will not be harmed because MOP will never go below the surface. In high wind conditions MOP can be deployed beneath the surface of the water, it will immediately rise to the surface, capturing any oil with which it comes in contact. Once it reaches the surface, it will never sink.

9. MOP Environmental Solutions, Inc. RESCUE Soil Cleaning Process
MOPN has recently filed a provisional patent on a process that allows us to clean oil out of sand and soil on site and very quickly. While we pray that damage to beaches will be minimal, we are prepared and equipped to take on this challenge should it be necessary.

10. Loose Sorbent is the preferred Solution because of its Efficiency. We can, and will, put our sorbent into booms and make them available, but booms by their very nature are inefficient. 1 container of our loose MOP sorbent will lock up 75,000 of oil in 3 hours. It would take over 23,000 polypropylene boom to achieve the same level of cleanup. The cost of 1 container of loose sorbent is $55,000. The cost of 23,000 booms is over $850,000. Our own booms, filled with MOP sorbent are 4 times as effective as polypropylene booms but even using them it would require more than 5,000 booms to contain the same amount of spill.

11. Using MOP Loose Sorbent and Recovering the Oil May be Marginally Profitable. At the very least it dramatically reduces the cost. If 75,000 gallons of spilled oil can be retrieved and recycled at a below market cost, of $40/barrel for example, this creates a gross profit of $65,772. Less the cost of the container, the profit is 32,772 - enough to purchase the next container or to pay for the skimmer and oil extraction equipment rental.

12. Finally, just a dose of common sense. If the oil is approaching the shore, and there is no way to stop it, wouldn't it be better to lock it up in loose sorbent that you will be able to clean up because it is floating on top of the tide pools and sand, Than to simply let the oil come ashore and damage the ecosystems? If NOAA would even just allow us to save the fragile shoreline areas by spraying the sorbent only in these areas as they are threatened, it would do a world of good.

13. MOP ™301 Sorbent has Oil consuming bacteria that speed bioremediation. In a water spill environment MOP ™301 used from the shore out into the low tide zone will permit the oil consuming bacteria to assist in the bioremediation of any oil that is missed in the cleanup.

Regarding MOP Loose Sorbent Use on Open Water

The following paragraphs come from a MOP Environmental Solutions Release July 2008 that explains the complexities of the EPA process for determining whether a product can be used on open water. They will help understand the specific process used that permits MOP to Certify that the MOP sorbent is safe for use on open water.

Essentially the process works as follows:

1. EPA issues a letter of determination that a product meets the standards of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), sections 300.5 and 300.915(g) of the National Contingency Plan.

2. MOP issues a Certification letter for the on-site coordinator, based on EPA's determination letter.

July 2008
The EPA has reviewed MOP® Maximum Oil Pickup and has found it to be in compliance with Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), sections 300.5 and 300.915(g) of the National Contingency Plan (NCP).

This certification enables MOP® Maximum Oil Pickup to be immediately used on site due to prior review by the EPA for any oil spill on land or water upon presentation of the authorized certification on our letterhead pursuant to the EPA review.

MOP CEO, Charles Diamond states: “This gives MOP® Maximum Oil Pickup a significant advantage since our product is allowed for use on both land and water. Oil spills supervised by a Federal approved On-Scene Coordinator can immediately accept or reject the cleanup materials being used. This EPA certification letter immediately informs any On-Scene Coordinator that MOP® Maximum Oil Pickup is allowed for use as an oil sorbent for any oil spill on land or water.”

MOP Environmental Designated as Resource by British Petroleum (BP) and U.S. Coast Guard for Gulf Oil Recovery

MOP Environmental Designated as Resource by British Petroleum (BP) and U.S. Coast Guard for Gulf Oil Recovery

BATH, NH, May 6, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- MOP Environmental Solutions, Inc. (MOPN.PK) has been designated as a “Resource” by both British Petroleum (BP) and the United States Coast Guard to assist when needed for the clean up efforts in the Gulf. The Company is communicating daily with those close to the clean up efforts and is ready to deploy product to the area at a moments notice.

During the past week the Company has been working diligently to respond to three separate “bid-requests” for large orders of booms for the Gulf Coast. The Company feels very strongly that MOP sorbent is the ultimate solution for protecting the most fragile ecosystems and fisheries along the coastline. Unlike competitors, MOP sorbents are the only oil spill remediation products on the planet that are green from “cradle-to-cradle” being manufactured with green hydro-electric power, and all natural materials that are 100% Biodegradable and 100% Recycled.

Mr. Charles Diamond, MOP Environmental Solutions President & CEO was quoted as saying, “All of us are devastated by the scope and potentially disastrous effects of the spill in Louisiana. We pray the wellhead is capped soon to stop the spill from growing worse.”

Regarding MOP he commented, “On both, an oil pickup per pound basis, and cost per pound basis, MOP out-performs every other sorbent, and is the best solution for any oil spill clean up effort, including the tragedy in the Gulf.”

Diamond emphasized, “The dwindling supplies of polypropylene, commonly believed to be the only oil sorbent available for the oil spill in the Gulf, have resulted in its scarcity and its quadrupling in cost. However, our virtually unknown MOP sorbent has always had both a cost and a performance advantage over polypropylene. This presently places our patented MOP sorbent at a tremendous advantage over polypropylene, and with recognition of the superior qualities of MOP, it could soon be the #1 sorbent of choice over all other sorbents in the market.”

“But if you’re not convinced take a closer look and you’ll see more reasons why… EPA’s review found our sorbent fibers in compliance with Title 40 of the National Contingency Plan for use on any oil spill on land or water. Polypropylene fibers are not environmentally sound, and are restricted from similar uses,” says Diamond.

“Even more convincing is the review by Randy Fletcher, Safety Specialist of British Petroleum (BP), who concluded: “The booms and pillows performed above the standards established by other booms (i.e. polypropylene) and were found more economical than the competitive brands we have used.” His letter is reproduced on our web site,” says Diamond.

When the truth is known regarding MOP quality, cost, pickup capacity, and environmental soundness, our patented MOP wins every time," said Diamond confidently.

MOP President Releases Update Letter

A Message from the President

It’s ironic how adversity so often carries the seeds of opportunity and hope. All of us are devastated by the scope and potentially disastrous effects of the spill in Louisiana. We pray the wellhead is capped soon to stop the spill from growing worse yet.

At the same time, the challenge of dealing with the oil spill has created a rare opportunity for MOP Environmental Solutions to demonstrate the power of our patented MOP 201 oil sorbent to a broad audience – one that is paying close attention.

I am grateful for the hundreds of emails and calls and letters from supporters, shareholders and friends, who have encouraged us to play a role in the solution to this massive problem.

Likewise I am mindful of those who have been constructive critics of some of our choices, often with the best of intentions. Every day I remind our team here at MOP Environmental Solutions that they need not be hurt by these criticisms because they are most often made by those who only want us to succeed on behalf of the company and the planet, but have found themselves on the side of the critics from time to time. Sometimes they will be fair criticisms and sometimes they will not, but they will always be worth considering. Especially when they are offered in the spirit of constructive dialog and engagement.

Of course, there are always those who will criticize simply because it is their nature. It’s usually pretty easy to distinguish who these folks are by the shrill tone of their comments and their black and white interpretations of dynamic and difficult choices.

I hope you’ll take the time to read this letter, in its entirety, so that you understand all of the steps we have been taking since our last update. Whether you agree or disagree with us, you will at least know that our goal - to paraphrase Justice Brandeis - is to let the sun shine in on the process, so that you are fully informed.

As you surely know by now, MOP 201 and 301 sorbents are the only oil spill pollution product on the planet that are green from cradle-to-cradle. . . manufactured with hydro-electric power, 100% recycled and natural materials and 100% biodegradable. We are very proud of this. From these patented products have sprung many other products that play an important part in sustainably addressing the broader challenges of hydrocarbon pollution and contamination.

Ironically, MOP’s effectiveness is one of its greatest challenges. It is easy to manufacture a cheap boom - for example - that must be disposed of as a hazardous waste and picks up only a small amount of oil, if no one pays attention to the over all effectiveness of the products.

On a pound for pound basis and on a cost per pound basis, MOP far out-performs every other sorbent around. But if decisions are made strictly on price without regard to efficiency; or if – as in this case – the government is restricting the amount of absorption as a way to control the weight of booms, we are challenged by how good the product is. This is a major challenge, but a challenge of which we can be proud. It is also a challenge we can meet while still maintaining a commitment to quality and sustainability.

Some of our friends and supporters have said to us, “don’t wait – put a container load on the road to Louisiana with one or two MOP cannons and force BP to use the product when you arrive.” After all they contend, “BP wrote a letter of endorsement for the product in the past, they should be held to their word.”

We even had one shareholder who came forward with an offer to cover the cost of production and shipping if we would do this. For those of you who are aware of the difficulties we have faced during the past year, successfully fighting to regain the company and to move forward, you will understand why this was a very tempting offer. While this individual later withdrew her commitment, we are grateful to her for causing us to examine our strategies on behalf of both the company and the planet. Her strategy may have been wrong, but her inclination to act and engage was spot on.

During the past two days we have been working diligently to respond to three separate “bid-requests” for large orders of booms for the Gulf coast. Had we shipped a container of the loose sorbent last week we would not have sufficient quantities of sorbent to fulfill these potential orders for much higher value-added products. As it is, the potential orders are large enough that we will only be able to service one of the three with our current available capacity. We felt that under the circumstances, the prudent business decision to make was to continue to negotiate on these requests, rather than take the risk that by sending a container, we would get an audience with the Coast Guard or BP. We believe VERY STRONGLY that at least one of these boom “bid-requests” will be shipped. However, we are aware that we are working in an environment where there are many unscrupulous players who do not deliver on their promises. We are being careful to do our due diligence regarding payment.

Additionally, we are in negotiations with two other companies to dramatically expand our production capacity. These are businesses that are NOT competitors but rather they are in the business of producing products that use similar lines of manufacturing equipment, thus creating an opportunity for us to be able to service two or possibly all three of these large bid-requests by subcontracting the excess production we need.

This is important to do for two reasons: First because, unfortunately, this spill will have a significant lifespan; and, second, because current negotiations with new distributorships in China, India, the Middle East, West Africa, Thailand and Malaysia will – once completed – create the need for added capacity, beyond the scope of the Gulf Oil spill.

We have NOT stopped working to get the Coast Guard to use our MOP sorbent directly. We still feel very strongly that the MOP sorbent is the ideal solution to the challenge of protecting the most fragile ecosystems and fisheries along the coastline.

We have made some significant progress in this area:

We were informed on Friday that MOP has been raised to the designation of a “Resource” by BP and the Coast Guard. This is not yet where we want to be, but it is a start. We are communicating daily with Command Central and with several friends and distributors in the Louisiana and Florida areas. They are standing by to go to the Command Center the moment we have an audience scheduled with BP, the Coast Guard or any state government willing to meet with us.

We will continue to keep our focus aimed like a laser on business practices that offer the best long-term hopes for growth and expansion of the MOP brand.

Let us all hold in our prayers all of God’s creatures that may potentially suffer from the calamity in the Gulf and pray this ends soon.

MOP Environmental Solutions: MOP Can Protect the Most Fragile Areas in Gulf Spill

News Release
For Immediate Release
May 3, 2010
For More Information: Wayne King 603-515-6001


MOP Environmental Solutions: MOP Can Protect the Most Fragile Areas in Gulf Spill
MOP® 201 Absorbing Product “Ready to Go” to Protect Shoreline

Bath, NH.-- (BUSINESS WIRE) --

New Hampshire–based MOP Environmental Solutions says it has the product to protect the most fragile areas along the Gulf Coast and it is just waiting to get a go ahead to ship the product and all deployment equipment.

“This problem has become enormous and no one solution is going to take care of everything but we have to do something to protect the fragile shoreline, fisheries and the oyster beds to the maximum extent as quickly as we can.” said Wayne King, spokesman for MOP Environmental Solutions.

“We have a container load of MOP absorbent and the equipment needed to deploy it ready to go, but we are awaiting the go-ahead from BP or the Coast Guard. We believe that we have the product capable of protecting the shoreline. We are confident that once demonstrated BP and the Coast Guard will be on board with our sustainable solution. We can produce sufficient additional absorbent to at least protect the most fragile zones.”

“More than 10 years ago BP issued a testimonial letter supporting MOP’s absorbent,” said King. “But the person who wrote that letter has moved on and now BP is ignoring an important component to the solution. It is maddening to be sitting here watching the slick close in on the land when we know that each container load of MOP sorbent can capture lock up to 80,000 gallons of the oil closest to land before it hits the shore. We can lock it up in 3 hours with our MOP Cannon that shoots out the absorbant from a fast moving boat or pumps it in underwater.”

“MOP’s absorbent is 100% recycled, 100% biodegradable and has the highest pickup ratio of any oil spill cleanup product in the industry,” said Charles Diamond, President of MOP Environmental Solutions. It is the safest, most thorough, lowest cost oil spill cleanup product there is. The EPA has reviewed MOP® and has found it complies with Title 40 CFR of the National Contingency Plan for any oil spill on land or water.
“We are not going to give up,” said Diamond. “We are already taking calls from subcontractors who know the effectiveness of MOP” but we believe the Coast Guard and BP should be working directly with us.”
“We are grateful for the hundreds of people who have emailed to volunteer their help and to tell us to keep pushing. Too much is at stake for us to give up. BP and the Coast Guard will have to take notice, time is of the essence.”
We have established an email hotline to be monitored 24/7 for the next few weeks: MOPEnvironmental@gmail.com

MOP ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTIONS, INC. (PINK SHEETS: MOPN) MOP® (Maximum Oil Pickup), produces patented technology and associated equipment, for effective global oil-spill recovery.
