Innovative Environmental Technologies, Inc. Receives Acceptance Of Claims

Notice of allowance for sca-003: Use of Encapsulated Substrates that Control the Release Rates of Organic Hydrogen Donors.

Patent Allowance
PRLog – May 26, 2015 – PHILADELPHIA — The environmental remediation industry is maturing, as a consequence, there are few new “innovations”; instead, vendors recycle and reinvent technologies. Innovative Environmental Technologies, Inc. (IET) is proud to report that our in-house intellectual property (IP) continues to expand with novel and trend setting technologies.

* Chemical/Biological Synergistic Oxidation
* Methane Inhibition Systems
* Reductive Dechlorination/Zero Valent Iron
* In-Situ Injection Systems

According to Michael Scalzi, President of IET and the inventor of the patented approach, “This is a game-changer for the industry. To be able to control the release of organic hydrogen through encapsulation is both novel and the next step for our industry.”

Taking its place among our unique and patented and patent pending microbiology and chemistries is our latest offering:

USE OF ENCAPSULATED SUBSTRATES THAT CONTROL THE RELEASE RATES OF ORGANIC HYDROGEN DONORS ALLOWED CLAIMS…………….

1. A method for accelerated biotic dechlorination of groundwater and soils based on reductive dechlorination processes comprising encapsulating fermentable organic hydrogen donors in order to control release of said fermentable organic hydrogen donors and stimulate said reductive dechlorination processes.

2. The method of claim 1 wherein said fermentable organic hydrogen donor is a fermentable substrate comprising one material or a combination of materials which when fermented result in dissolved volatile fatty acids.

3. The method of claim 1 wherein said fermentable organic hydrogen donor is an organic salt including acetate, butyrate, formate, lactate, proprionate, and carbohydrates.

4. The method of claim 3 in wherein said organic salt is controllably released and accomplished via an encapsulation of said organic salt.

5. The method of claim 4 wherein said encapsulation of said organic salt is accomplished via liposomes, dendrimers or polymetric organic particles.

6. The method of claim 1 wherein said fermentable organic hydrogen donor is introduced into targeted groundwater via temporary or permanent wells.

7. The method of claim 6 wherein said introduction of said fermentable organic hydrogen donor into the groundwater via temporary or permanent wells is accomplished via gravity feeding, induced gas stream, a pump, or a combination thereof.

8. The method of claim 6 wherein said introduction of said fermentable organic hydrogen donor is accomplished under pressure in either a gas or liquid stream.

9. The method of claim 1 wherein said fermentable organic hydrogen donor is introduced into a targeted area via mechanical mixing of the soils.

10. The method of claim 1 wherein said fermentable organic hydrogen donor is introduced into an open excavation prior to backfilling.

11. The method of claim 1 wherein said reductive dechlorination process is accompanied by additional materials known to further promote a suitable environment of reductive dechlorination.

12. The method of claim 11 wherein said additional materials assist in control of pH.

13. The method of claim 12 wherein said additional materials include hydroxides, carbonates and zero valent metals.

14. The method of claim 11 wherein said additional materials are biologically stimulating agents including vitamins, yeast extract, and biological cultures.

15. A method for accelerated biotic dechlorination of groundwater and soils based on reductive dechlorination processes comprising controlling a release of fermentable organic hydrogen donors by encapsulating said fermentable organic hydrogen donors.

16. The method of claim 15 wherein said fermentable organic hydrogen donors are encapsulated in a lipid bilayer.

17. The method of claim 15 wherein said fermentable organic hydrogen donors are encapsulated using a polar lipid compound.
