Hales Global LLC (http://www.halesglobal.com), a Washington, D.C. and Virginia government relations firm, announced today the existence of a 100% bio-degradable tool -- already being used overseas -- that can help clean up the calamitous BP oil spill off the Southern coast of the United States.
The product, known as the Oil Absorber, sucks the oil off the water, allowing the oil to then be scooped up in a mass form. The product can be used again once the oil is burned from the used product.
Hales Global is bringing its client, Los Angeles-based World Energy USA, the product's exclusive U.S. marketer and distributor, to Hales' Newport News, Va. office to demonstrate the product's effectiveness. The group of invitees includes BP Oil, the federal Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Navy, media organizations and others.
The product announcement comes one day after BP officials announced on Saturday that it has accepted the invitation of actor Kevin Costner to help clean the oil spill with a specially patented machine.
Hales Global believes the Oil Absorber will be of even more value because the product can help with both cleaning up the spill and containment. Also, the product has been used to help clean oil spills in several European countries, according to Larry Hales, president of Hales Global.
"This is a cutting edge product far superior to anything in the marketplace," Hales said."We will be pushing for at least a demonstration out in the open waters."
The Oil Absorber demonstration will take place 11 a.m. Monday, May 24, at Hales Global LLC, 11815 Fountain Way, Suite 300 Newport News, Va., in the City Center at Oyster Point business complex. For more information, call Larry Hales at (202) 821-3049.
Hales said his client has 500,000 cubic tons of the product available for shipment immediately to Louisiana and could have a facility up and running in two weeks to create more product in Newport News. He said the operation could produce 60 to 90 "clean" jobs within 30 days.
All the materials needed to create the product are readily available, according to Hales. Such a facility would require mixers to turn the product into pellets. The product would then be packaged in either bags or drums and shipped out.
Hales Global, along with its client, World Energy USA, is working on the world's largest renewable energy project, World Energy Park near the Los Angeles airport. Other partners on the project include GE, Deutsche Bank, Boeing, Chevron, SunCal, Inland Energy, Sun Power,and E-Solar, a Google-owned company.
