The worlds first big oil tanker disaster occurs off the coast of Alaska. The Exxon Valdez’s oil cargo pollutes the pristine coast line of Alaska.
Exxon searched the globe for a biotechnological solution to the Valdez spill.
French Petroleum company ELF AQUITAINE was developing a bio remediation product called INIPOL EAP-22
After extensive tests Exxon purchased INIPOL EAP-22 to remediate the contaminated coastline
Elf Petroleum was purchased by TOTAL Petroleum who rationalized their operations and folded the bioremediation chemical sales group of the AQUITAINE division
Head Chemist at ELF AQUITANE was Jim Lynn, founder of International Environmental Products (IEP)
Jim Lynn has in recent years developed the concept further to produce a S200 – Oil Gone
Contaminants: North Slope Crude oil
