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.
