QualiTech Environmental recently partnered with Green Boom to develop and promote a revolutionary line of eco-friendly absorbent products, providing its customers with 100% biodegradable oil spill prevention, response, and remediation products.
QualiTech said it will introduce Green Boom’s USDA Biopreferred ‘green’ absorbents, including booms, socks, pillows, spill kits, and loose absorbent, during the Clean Pacific Annual Conference, set for Aug. 17-18 in Renton, Wash.
“Green Boom is so honored to partner with QualiTech to educate the oil spill industry on ways to leverage our environmentally safe absorbents,” said Sudhir Sharma, Green Boom co-founder. “With QualiTech’s industry leadership position, we believe their endorsement and support will be integral to our success.”
Available in industry standard-sized pillows, socks, spill kits, and booms, and custom sizes, Green Boom’s products are made from patent-pending, biomass up-cycling technologies that use sustainably sourced agricultural wastes and textiles, the company said. Led by a team with broad chemical engineering experience, Green Boom created a technology that converts renewable, biodegradable, and low-value agricultural materials into water-repellent, oil-only absorbents.
“QualiTech is always looking for new and better ways to protect the environment when addressing an oil spill,” said Josh Clifford, operations manager at QualiTech Environmental. “Green Boom’s products are in line with our parent company, QualiTech, Inc. values of providing top-quality ingredients and nutrients that promote the health and well-being of people, plants, and animals. This partnership makes perfect sense to introduce this cutting-edge innovation at Clean Pacific, one of our industry’s most important trade shows.”
