Preliminary Results are in for ViroPhos usage for Stomwater Retention Pond in
Rocky Mount, NC
EnviRemed is proud to announce the preliminary test results from the latest tests of ViroPhos™ in North Carolina. North Carolina State University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences received a grant funded by NCCWM trust fund to test phosphorus, nitrogen and total suspended solid sequestration for wet storm water infiltration ponds. The test was performed at a pond owned by the city of Rocky Mount, N.C. in partnership with the city of Rocky Mount. Storm water runoff containing high levels of phosphorous and nitrogen from animal waste and agricultural fertilizers causes nutrient levels in water systems to become unbalanced. These unbalanced conditions cause water pollution by promoting excessive algae growth, particularly in lakes and other water bodies. Significant increases in algae harm water quality, food resources and habitats. In this test after just the first few months of testing results show that ViroPhos™ was able to lower nitrogen contamination by sixty three percent. Total phosphorus contamination dropped by eighty nine percent and total suspended solids dropped by seventy eight percent. The test graphs are listed here.
This is the second test conducted by North Carolina State University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences using ViroPhos™. The first study lead to ViroPhos™ being listed by the storm water control measure credit document of the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality stating ViroPhos™ as “significantly reducing total nitrogen and total phosphorous levels”. These are two of many years of worldwide successes for ViroPhos™ treating water systems from phosphorous and nitrogen contamination.

EnviRemed Treats Ponds at Coco Beach Golf Course in Puerto Rico
EnviRemed has been contracted to treat the ponds at Coco Beach Golf Resort with a special bacterial formulation of bioremediation microbes. Joe Robertson, EnviRemed’s Director of Engineering, produced the necessary formula and combined the materials in our warehouse in Ocean Isle Beach, NC. These microbes are natural and are non-toxic, non-pathogenic and non-polluting and are safe to humans, fish and wildlife. In July 2016 Joe will be joining the staff at Coco Beach for the supervision of the inoculation and training for the subsequent weeks of treatment.
EnviRemed goes to Columbia, South America
In March 2016, Tripp Sloane – Director of Business Development, Jack McLean – Technical Consultant, and Keith Can – Sales Representative for Columbia, went to Cartagena, Columbia SA for the initial meetings with Bravo Petroleum and with Oiltanking regarding EnviRemed’s Crude Oil Sludge Hydrocarbon Recovery process. These meetings were successful and EnviRemed was invited to attend the HSSE&Q Regional Meeting in May where EnviRemed was asked to make a presentation to the Oiltanking’s Regional Technical Committee. They also met with Bravo Petroleum again and provided an onsite demonstration of the HCR Tank Cleaner.

EnviRemed makes a trip to La Paz, Bolivia to teach a Soil Stabilization Seminar and preform a new stabilization project – April 2015
Our Director of Operations, Construction and Business Development all made an initial visit to La Paz, Bolivia under the invitation of the public works department to assist in helping solve road issues that cause the country many problems. On April 14th EnviRemed taught a day long seminar on the mechanics behind soil and stabilization and how we can solve the issues associated with those mechanisms. Starting on April 15th we began the install on our first road in Bolivia.

Virotec Global Solutions looks to EnviRemed for trials – June, 2014
Virotec Global Solutions is pleased to announce that it has just completed the initial test work of its ViroFlow™ Technology to treat phosphorus-contaminated lake water in the United States. The work, carried out by Virotec in partnership with EnviRemed LLC, the company’s U.S. agent working with local water authorities to implement the Technology, has resulted in the effective removal of total phosphorus (TP) from contaminated lake water to “never-before-seen levels”. EnviRemed LLC has informed Virotec that as a result of the trials US$200,000 has been allocated to implement a full-scale field trial of ViroFlow™ Technology at the lake, which will be monitored by local and state water management authorities.
Dr Lee Fergusson, Virotec’s Chief Executive Officer, explains the remarkable results. “The primary problem with contaminated lake water is that the presence of even low levels of nutrients in the water, nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen, results in the over-fertilization of the lake, and this condition generates an algal bloom as a consequence of the significant increase in phytoplankton in the water. Negative environmental effects include a loss of oxygen in the water, with severe reductions in fish and other animal populations. This problem is called ‘eutrophication’.” Virotec is typically asked by clients to treat water with a starting TP of between 20-70 parts per million, and our Technology is designed to produce a post-treatment TP level of between 1.0 and 2.0 parts per million, the level where eutrophication becomes a problem. Indeed, the company has conducted many such projects around the world including in the U.S. and UK, comfortably reaching these levels as a result of applying ViroFlow™ Technology.
Dr Fergusson explained that “in the case of the freshwater lake in the United States, we had starting levels of just 0.14 and 0.43 parts per million (or 150-430 parts per billion) but were required to reduce these already extremely low levels to 0.01 parts per million (or 10 parts per billion). We have never before observed such low levels of phosphorus in water, but according to U.S. authorities, these levels when considered in the light of total annual phosphorus loadings are high enough to cause a major problem in downstream waterways and wetlands, and hence the need for drastic measures.”
“I am pleased to announce to the market today,” Dr Fergusson went on to say, “that ViroFlow™ Technology reduced TP to under 0.007 parts per million or just 7.0 parts per billion.”
Dr Fergusson also reported that total nitrogen had been reduced as a result of ViroFlow™ Technology from 6.4 parts per million to 3.1 parts per million (a 52% reduction), and total potassium had been reduced from 16.3 parts per million to just 1.7 parts per million (a 90% reduction). While these other nutrients are of secondary concern to U.S. regulators, these significant reductions are also a benefit to the quality of lake water.
“Our results were confirmed twice by U.S. state environmental regulators in their own laboratories following Virotec’s test protocols and treatment methods,” Dr Fergusson explained, “and therefore mean we can now move to a large-scale field trial and further confirmation and acceptance of our Technology in the all important North American market. We will keep our customers and partners informed of our progress”
