St. Paul, MN – Environmental Leader recently announced results of its Technology Reviews, a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits. Antea®Group’s Global RegSupport™ Helpdesk and Enhanced Concentrating Oxygen Soil Vapor Extraction System (ECO-SVE) were recognized, each earning 4 Stars (out of 5). Companies that scored 3.5 Stars or higher are featured in the Environmental Leader Technology Reviews Hall of Fame and in the Environmental Leader Technology Reviews report.
Products and services were evaluated and ranked by a panel of independent judges from companies including: PepsiCo, Staples, the University of California Berkeley, ISS Facility Services, Owens Corning, Yahoo! Inc., GlaxoSmithKline, Legrand, Petco, and New Belgium Brewing Company. Environmental Leader’s staff played no role in the judging of the submitted products. “The caliber of the entries was impressive, and truly showed the innovation taking place in the industry today,” says Paul Nastu, publisher of Environmental Leader. “The judges had their work cut out for them. It was a tough playing field for those that entered, and the products that scored 3.5 Stars or higher are those that the judges say have viable attributes that set them apart from others in the field.”
Antea Group’s ECO-SVE system is a patented remediation technology that effectively and safely treats impacted soil and groundwater by creating a re-circulatory process with zero emissions and no combustion. ECO-SVE increases subsurface oxygen levels and biotic activity, thus accelerating site clean-up and reducing lifecycle remediation costs compared to conventional remediation systems. Impressed with the ECO-SVE process, one judge stated, “This process can have a dramatic impact on the cost and effectiveness of cleanups nationwide involving contaminated soils. By eliminating air permitting requirements and improving the quality of the treated soils at a lower cost than conventional technologies, ECO-SVE provides a faster path to remediation and reuse of contaminated sites that could be redeveloped to create badly needed jobs in industrial areas.”
Antea Group’s Global RegSupport™ Helpdesk is a pay-as-you-go service that connects clients to the right in-country specialist for reliable, tailored, and real-time answers to any environment, health and safety or product regulatory question in 100 countries on six continents. The online service offers real-time answers to regulatory questions customized to the client’s specific operations and products with a simple email interface that makes the service uniquely responsive, easy to use, and cost effective. “Wow! This is a service that is sorely needed,” noted one judge. “There are a few services that claim to offer ‘global’ regulatory tracking/databases, but none have been complete. Antea Group’s global reach will allow not only regulatory translation of various regs and legislation, but linguistic translation, as well. This is of particular value and a point of distinction.”
