Company says it has solution for Gulf oil spill, but being ignored


www.sott.net

St Petersburg, Florida -- With the disaster in the Gulf keeping everyone on edge looking for a solution, the answer might lay in material manufactured by a Columbian company with an office in Florida.

The company, Global Environmental Technology, has a product that is 100 percent organic and was invented in 1998 by its president, Carlos Forero. He won science competitions in Switzerland and Austria for the product, which encapsulates oil and cleans the material up.

Not only does the product clean up the oil, it can also be recycled for use afterwards. In addition, if birds are contamin

Is "not invented here" syndrome slowing adoption of the technology needed to clean up the Gulf oil spill?

Or is it that deals are being struck to divert the potential profits away from South America into the pockets of Big Oil?

The product looks far more eficient and hugely safer at first glance than anything they are trying or have tried so far.

Yes, deals were struck

3 weeks before the spill, Haliburton bought Boots & Coots,
An oil spill catastrophe company.
coincidence ??? hardly

Does it sound familiar ???

6 weeks before 9/11
Silverstein takes out terrorist insurance
on the towers.

And both of these investments
are making profits.

Not to mention that Haliburton was involved
in another oil spill in Australia in 2009.
Where tanked stocks of PTTEP were gobbled up
on the Thailand Stock Market.

Coincidence?? not hardly

we're just waiting to see who buys
BP stock when it hits rock bottom.
And you will find your hostile take-over conspiracy.
Follow the money !!!

Yeah the solution is called hay, there is no need for some special clean up product It grows wild and is cultivated all over the earth and proven to work and has been used in the past, no EPA approval needed. See below thread.

My understanding was that in the quantities required, it would deplete the amount that is used as feed for livestock, cattle etc?

All you need is a skimmer to suck the water into a centrifugal chamber, as the oil has a different viscosity it will seperate at a particular height in the chamber. You can then funnel that layer out seperate the oil from the water and pump the water back out into the ocean.

No chemicals, no hair, no hay bails. No fancy machines.

Suck it out at a massive rate, seperate it. Pipe the clean water back in.

From Naples News link in OP.


“One pound of my product will absorb two gallons of oil,” Cabot explained. “It repels the water and absorbs the oil.”

The Now in GetNow stands for “no oily water.” Get stands for global environmental technology.


Impressive!

The military uses stuff very similar to this in motor pools (mechanic shops) for spills. It is VERY efficient and could, if there was a very huge amount, take care of the situation.

As for the oil/water separation due to different viscosities, this is also used in motor pools. I don't know why something like this hasn't been put to use around the area already. I know it's a huge amount of crude seeping through, but this would help to lessen the economical impact. It wouldn't fixed the problem, but it would be a decent "first aid" technique.

So can the company produce 100,000 pounds of this per day? Is it buoyant? Can it be collected easily after absorbing oil.

It seems these types of products are not unique, it is just the mass quantity and the deployment and collection apparatus that is the limiting factor. Not a bad idea, just incomplete so far.

Does this company have some novel approach besides their product?

i tihnk they said you can burn the hay after as fuel too.
pretty eco friendly on both ends.

I just found out that Halliburton and the CEO moved their offices to Dubai to avoid a bunch of things. Check out my Halliburton thread and go to the last post. Halliburton = Devil!

Throughout this whole time, I've had this thought in the back of my mind: what if this was a false flag to get the carbon tax bills passed, etc? Just a thought that entered my mind.

"Oh, the ocean has been polluted beyond belief by oil, and now we must tax you for your carbon footprint." Because, why else wouldn't they want to use this, unless they didn't know about it? Why would they have to lie about this so much, other than the fact it's embarrassing? You'd think they'd come out clean, as it is in the media... and considering the severity of it, you'd think they would take some responsibility so that they can get as much help as possible to clean this mess up... Any thoughts, yea okay wut ok almost a beard ok tough you know fossil fuels yea almost a beard ok buy? Honestly I think btoborg1 is the real enemy. K buy

I live in Pueblo CO, not a large farming community, and whats around us is cattle farms. Al-long one of our county roads sits 30 or s rolls of hay in a field... rotting. These aren't hay bails, these are the 30 foot long 10 foot high rolls that it is rolled into before being bailed. From what I understand, and have heard, these rolls are around 3 tons. Soo if it's siting here, where all we really have is Cattle and Horses that will eat it, I'm sure we have it sitting around else where in the country.
We need to look into this better, I doubt that hay is sooo hard to come by that we couldn't use it to save the sea life.

I looked into it and found that Boots & Coots (What a name!) are experts in putting out Oil Well Fires and not cleaning Oil Spills. Halliburton has only spoken of plans of taking them over. I don't think they have actually bought them yet. It is a wise move for a company that doesn't really care too much about following safety regulations.

We are beginning to see the power of the word "scarcity". It's not in full effect just yet but if this is allowed to continue we will all see how this works. This is a crisis and a damn fine one and it will not be wasted.

We can eliminate offshore drilling and the people will eventually demand it thus eliminating some of the highest paying jobs in the "blue collar" field.

We can drive up the price substantially of gasoline. the oil companies are going to get theirs be assured.

And we can if we allow this to continue make the Gulf coast region of the United States uninhabitable. No fishing, no drilling, no industry.

This is an excellent opportunity for the agenda to jump forward in a major way and there is no way they are going to stop this thing just yet. Think about how long it took before anyone in the Federal Government even attempted to affect any real change in this incident and now they "cant" figure out how to contain it. I believe the figure is 80% of the scientists that ever lived are alive today.

That reservoir has roughly estimated 50 million barrels of oil, now freely being released into our seas and they cant stop it? No, they don't want to stop it.

I understand that this company has to make money to make a living , but if they have a solution to fix an evironmental problem that could effect the entire planet , then surely you would do the right thing and just go out there in boats and clean it up for free !

Its shocking that people still want to make money ! when lives are at stake
