NEW TECHNOLOGY SHOWCASED AT FORT MONMOUTH

State Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Shinn today visited Fort Monmouth where a new technology to clean contaminated soil and groundwater is being demonstrated.

The technology involves injecting compounds into the soil and water to speed the breakdown of the contaminants. The Hydrogen Release Compound (HRC) technology was developed by Regenesis Bioremediation Products of San Clemente, CA, with offices in Cinnaminson, NJ.

The New Jersey Corporation for Advanced Technology (NJCAT) has verified the efficacy of the new technology. NJCAT, an organization promoting development and commercialization of new environmental technologies, is affiliated with the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

"Over the years, New Jersey has become a leader in environmental protection, and is now a leader in advancing environmental technologies that will help us attain our goals for a clean and healthy environment," said Commissioner Shinn.

HRC is being demonstrated at a landfill site on the fort's main post. Commissioner Shinn recently signed an agreement with the U.S. Department of Defense to further the clean-up of military sites throughout the Garden State.

HRC is the first technology to be verified under an agreement between NJCAT and Canada. In March, Canada endorsed Regenesis' HRC technology, based on NJCAT's verification. NJCAT is promoting the sharing of verification data to speed the use of innovative environmental technologies worldwide. It recently hosted an international environmental technologies expo in Atlantic City. NJCAT will again host the annual event, in October 2001.
