Stormwater emissions results for Puget Sound unprecedented

Sponsored by

SEATTLE, WA, April 9, 2010 -- WI Environmental LLC, working with CSR Marine, of Seattle has passed certified testing of its product XR-88™ to remediate dangerous metals contained in stormwater runoff. When tested WI Environmental's chemical rendered results that far exceed Washington state's allowable discharge amounts of copper, lead and zinc, demonstrating a potential solution to Puget Sound clean up efforts. XR-88 treats and turns inert heavy metals and most poisons including arsenic; the by-product sludge can be disposed of easily as it requires no special disposal requirements. Additionally, previous toxicity tests have proved no harmful effects to aquatic life and the food they consume.

"We see the immediate need for our product in Puget Sound. We believe XR-88 and our technology will save millions if not billions in regards to the Puget Sound clean up effort. Researching all available technologies and tests performed in regards to the Puget Sound, we realized to date there was not a product or technology that passed the stringent current Washington State Regulations or new regulations being proposed April 21st," according to Timothy Wandell, president of WI Environmental. "When you pass non-detect levels of metals and turn them inert there is no better remediation you can achieve. We hope in the future Washington state takes these results into consideration for its regulations and standards."

Due to the high cost of research, development and testing in the U.S., WI Environmental chose China to explore the possibilities of its product. Over five years, over 100 tests were completed for treatability and cost benefit analysis with probably the highest concentrations and most deadly contaminants, including hexavalent chromium, in the world. XR-88 achieved not only the Chinese National Standard but exceeded it by more than double. XR-88 has passed all U.S. EPA tests including the TCLP test for leachability. The tests with CSR were performed on stormwater runoff and effluent from a pressure washing system to remove bottom paint which contains high levels of copper and zinc.

XR-88 is very cost effective and equipment requirements are 10 percent of what current technologies use. Additionally, the possibility of blending and distributing XR-88 in Washington state would cut the costs of treatment, create thousands of much needed "Green Jobs" and become a major export product worldwide.

"We look forward to working closely with Washington state and the many people and organizations committed to the restoration of our most prized natural resource," adds Wandell.
