BATH, NH, June 24, 2010 (MARKET WIRE) - - MOP Environmental Solutions announced today that CEO Charles Diamond has been asked to submit testimony to a Congressional Committee reviewing technology and small business entrepreneurs who offer solutions to aspects of the growing BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
The Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship held a hearing Thursday, June 17 at 10 a.m. in SD-G50 entitled “Harnessing Small Business Innovation: Navigating the Evaluation Process for Gulf Coast Oil Cleanup Proposals.”
An assistant to Senator Mary Landrieu, Committee Chair, requested Mr. Diamond’s written testimony in order to have the information to committee members expeditiously.
Mr. Diamond’s written testimony will focus on the rapid deployment capabilities of the MOP - Maximum Oil Pickup product and need to permit the use of loose sorbent in open waters of the Gulf. He will also stress the need to attack the oil before it begins to reach the beaches while at the same time highlighting the ability of MOP to clean up the oil that has reached land in the more difficult zones around the marshes and bayous.
ABOUT MOP ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTIONS, INC.
MOP Environmental Solutions, Inc. (MOPN) is a publicly traded company. MOP Maximum Oil Pickup is a "cradle-to-cradle" green product that is arguably the most effective oil spill recovery system on the market.
Brief Description of The MOP Technology:
MOP Maximum Oil Pickup is an aggressive oleophyllic and hydrophobic (oil attracting and water repelling) sorbent made from recycled and fully biodegradable materials, manufactured using small-scale hydroelectric green energy. MOP’s properties are such that it can effectively deal with an oil spill the size of the Exxon Valdez, but is equally effective at cleaning up the oil spill off a garage floor.
Regarding the gulf oil spill; Our patented product MOP Maximum Oil Pickup can capture and contain the oil spill at its source and at all locations out to its furthest perimeter including the marshlands and beaches. Where the oil has landed on beaches or land it will separate and remove the oil from the soil or sand on site quickly. Our oil-only pickup product is called MOP Maximum Oil Pickup. MOP floats, is all natural, it is safe to the environment, birds, animals and aquatic life. It is rapidly deployed at over 150 mph using our MOP-Cannon and removed using our MOP-Vac. MOP is applied above water or below water where it floats up and locks the oil, completely neutralizing all potential harmful effects of the spilled oil. This is the only known oil recovery method that will work under all weather conditions. The oil can be retrieved for re-use where the resulting profit is greater than the expense of cleanup.
