Oil from BP's Deepwater Horizon well may not have reached Alabama or Florida’s shores yet, but the time to begin clean-up is now, says GreenValley Products CEO Tony Rea.
“We’ve been meeting with state governors, fellow businesses and state and federal regulators, and we’re very concerned that red tape will get in the way of a timely response to one of the worst ecological disasters to face our country,” says Rea. “We need to get moving now before the damage is done to the Gulf Coast, particularly in Florida.”
Rea has focused his attention on Florida because the oil hasn’t reached its beaches yet, it has the longest shoreline in the Gulf of Mexico, and because tourism is such an important part of that state’s economy.
“Right now, cleanup efforts are focusing on Louisiana, which is undeniably important,” says Rea. “However, Florida has time to get products and people in place to capture the oil before it hits their beaches.”
GreenValley Products produces RHA, an oil reclamation product made of rice hull ash. RHA is a powder that absorbs 10 times its weight in oil, and makes the oil easy to remove from water or land. RHA is EPA-approved and is safe for animals, plants, water and soil.
