Innovative and Environmentally Responsible
EarthClean is a closely-held, private company, whose mission is the creation and commercialization of environmentally friendly, innovative green chemistry technologies. EarthClean does not focus on a specific market or industry, rather it endeavors to identify situations or processes where green chemistry technology would greatly benefit the environment.
The company’s first product, TetraKOTM, is a direct response to the growing concern over the toxicity of existing firefighting foams, super absorbent polymer-based fire suppressants, and phosphorus and ammonia dioxide–based retardants. These suppressants and retardants can be harmful to fish, mammals, plants and the watershed.
Unlike all other products in its category, TetraKO employs a patented formula that, when mixed with water, provides an incredibly effective fire suppressant and mid-term retardant. Among its many benefits are faster fire suppression, less water damage to structures, reduced water use and enhanced firefighter safety. It has been certified non-toxic and “ready biodegradable”, the highest level possible, by an accredited, independent research lab. TetraKO is also certified to be non-toxic to water, fish, and mammals by independent research organizations.
TetraKO water enhancer is the first fire suppression product to earn EPA’s DfE recognition under the Industrial/Institutional product category “Fire Fighting Product”, satisfying the need for a highly effective, and environmentally safe fire suppression alternative.
