GreenGlove Limited is a European partner of Zero Thermal™ patented products from Oceans Technology Group LLC (OTG) based in Florida USA.
OTG produces highly concentrated Organic Visco-Elastomeric Polymer in liquid form which is developed from algae. The polymer is then processed into 5 key products, with uses across multiple industries. Our polymers offer numerous advantages over the traditional methodologies resulting in substantial savings in terms of both time and cost.
The fundamentals of the technology are by removing energy from active or reactive molecules and creating or separating atomic and subatomic bonds to convert contaminants into inert molecules that are non-toxic and friendly to the native species.
In-situ chemical oxidation methodologies are one of the most rapid and cost-effective methods of innovative treatment technologies to remediate organic and inorganic contaminants in groundwater and saturated soils. Our in-situ chemical oxidation processes use innovative injection procedures and proprietary formulations of safe chemical oxidizers combined with polarized catalysed reagents and organic polymers.
The principal advantage of our chemical oxidation process over other in-situ chemical remediation treatments is the very low cost and the rapid and complete reduction of toxins in groundwater contamination and contaminants in saturated soil.
The polymers have been utilised successfully in several remediation applications including the reduction in heavy metals via both oxidization and fixation.
The reduction in heavy metals takes place via fixation of the material using our powder polymer. This powder is similar in appearance to cement but has the ability to bind almost any material, regardless of PH range.
After a curing period samples were sent for WAC analysis whereby the material is crushed and leach tested. The table below shows the heavy metal reductions of 2 separate samples.
Zero Thermal polymers have certain advantages in oil separation, flocculation and water treatment.
Zero Thermal is polarised to react with oil which allows oil molecules, normally held in silica through surface tension, to be released via repulsion (Van de Waals forces).
Zero Thermal polymers are more efficient and manipulate the process in order to separate and harvest oils from solids, while at the same time lowering Total Organic Carbon (TOCs) and other undesirable elements from waste materials.
Zero Thermal can be used as a resin additive / modifier and has the ability to transfer its inherent algae derived properties for the development of high-performance coatings. The technology can be used in both waterborne, and solvent base formulations.
Unlike suspension polymerisation processes used by many manufacturers, the process can be VOC and surfactant-free.
Zero Thermal additive coatings can offer high resistance to the destructive nature of the elements, such as water, temperatures, UV light, and corrosive salts. All are essential performance properties for resins applied in industrial settings.
