ecoSPEARS Formally Urges GE and EPA to Review New Technology for Hudson River Clean-up

Posted on: January 26th, 2018 by Kirenaga Partners

As any New York native will tell you, the Hudson River is a tragically polluted waterway despite its proximity to one of the largest population hubs on the planet. The toxins primarily responsible for this state are PCBs, poisonous chemicals with a long lifespan that were dumped into the river over the middle of the past century by General Electric (GE) before the extent of their deleterious effects were well-known. Now, our partners at ecoSPEARS are looking to turn the Hudson River story around.

ecoSPEARS has formally asked GE, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and state officials to review their recently commercialized, NASA developed technology as a solution to the Hudson River’s longstanding contamination problem. This technology, conceived by NASA to solve their own PCB related issues and exclusively licensed by ecoSPEARS, would allow for the rapid and permanent removal of PCBs from the Hudson River system with a fraction of the financial cost and environmental disruption of alternative measures. Considering current clean-up efforts using existing technologies have failed to meet clean-up plan targets thus far, we at Kirenaga hope that, for the sake of all residents near the Hudson River, this new technology is given the serious consideration it deserves.

ecoSPEARS Receives Exclusive License for SPEARS Tech from NASA

Posted on: December 22nd, 2017 by Kirenaga Partners

Our partners over at ecoSPEARS have received an exclusive license from NASA to bring the eponymous Sorbent Polymer Extraction and Remediation System (“SPEARS”) technology to market. Without any exaggeration, this technology is revolutionary relative to the other current options available for the remediation of PCB’s, the persistent and toxic chemicals responsible for the pollution of numerous major waterways such as the Hudson River.
