FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PROGRESSIVE GLOBAL TECHNOLOGIES OFFERS "GREEN" SOLUTION TO GLOBAL NITRATE CRISIS
CEDAR HILL, TX, April 16, 2007 --/WORLD-WIRE/-- A small, minority-owned business in a small Texas town has developed a system that is bound to become the best available technology among nitrate removal technologies.
Progressive Global Technologies, Inc. has developed a product called Oxy-Pro™ NR that is considerably more cost effective and more efficient than the alternatives. The solution is eco-friendly, because it is non-toxic and degrades to water.
Oxy-Pro™ NR converts nitrate to harmless nitrogen, N2, gas which is released into the air, leaving the water completely nitrate free and in a healthy 50/50 balance, with equal parts carbon dioxide, CO2, and oxygen.
Nitrates are on the increase the world-over due to factors that include wastes from municipal, agricultural, and industrial processes. Health and environmental issues associated with nitrates are various and multiple, ranging from reduction in the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood and increased cancer risks, to promoting anoxic conditions in surface and ground waters world-wide. Literally, billions of dollars are spent every year in attempts at resolving these issues.
Current methods of nitrate removal consist of distillation, dilution, reverse osmosis filtration, ion exchange resin filtration or the use of biological agents. All these methods come at enormous expense to both drinking water and wastewater plants.
Oxy-Pro™ NR is simple in design, requires only small capital investment for chemical tanks and injection pumps, and is highly efficient. The product is chemically stable, safe to handle, ship, and store.
Oxy-Pro™ NR recently received certification from NSF International, the internationally recognized organization governing health effects of drinking water treatment chemicals. It is the only chemistry product registered with the NSF for this function.
Green chemistry is the design of eco-friendly chemical products that reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Internationally, established nitrate thresholds are at levels which could rise quickly out of control. Careless and complacent attitudes towards monitoring, enforcement, and compliance of this bio-nutrient appear too lax, yet seem to be the "norm." Oxy-Pro™ NR provides economical and achievable solutions for these increasing concerns.
