Solucorp's Lead Remediation and Removal Product Targeted to Revolutionize Paint Industry

Published on 2004-12-13. Author : SpecialChem

FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Solucorp Industries, Ltd. (OTC:SLUP - News), Solucorp's President Richard Runco announces that Solucorp's subsidiary Integrated Fixation System Co., Inc. is entering the lead removal market with its Low Cost "Re-med-i-ate" lead paint removal product which contains proprietary technologies proven to remediate lead as well as chromium and zinc contained paints. The lead paint is instantly converted to non-hazardous and therefore can cost effectively be disposed of in a "non-hazardous" landfill at about 25% of the higher cost of lead disposal in a "hazardous" landfill. This action is immediately cost effective and minimizes the amount of hazardous lead and other metals disposed of in the hazardous landfills thereby mitigating a serious problem, which would have to be environmentally dealt with in the future and enhancing the value of "Re-med-i-ate" as the proper alternative to existing more costly, less effective competitors. Along this line, "Re-med-i-ate" allows its users to further lower costs for application and labor while emphasizing environmental safety as "airborne" and secondary contaminant problems are minimized due to "Re-med-i-ate's" unique ability to neutralize leachable lead and metals upon contact.

Manufacturing, production, packaging, labeling and distribution operations needed for marketing and sales of "Re-med-i-ate" are in place. Solucorp has developed a marketing and sales strategy, which includes actively seeking sales representative companies in the lead paint industry. Integrated Fixation System (IFS) has already entered into an agreement with the firm of J&M Laboratories Inc., to promote and market this IFS product. J&M Laboratories, founded in 1970, is a nationwide corporation headquartered in Kentucky. As a leader in the specialty chemical industry, J&M has distinguished itself as a leader in technology, service, and product diversification.

Solucorp will be showcasing "Re-med-i-ate" and other "IFS" products including self remediating filters, landfill liners and hazardous waste disposal bags, etc. at trade shows throughout 2005 with The Joint Services Environmental Management Conference and Exposition scheduled in Tampa, Florida for April 2005. Additionally, the public relations firm of Martin E. Janis in Chicago, Illinois will be promoting this and other IFS products through the media for inclusion in trade and industry publications. Along this line, Solucorp's IFS technology was featured in the December 6, 2004 issue of Waste News Magazine.

"Re-med-i-ate" enables consumers, contractors and municipalities to economically and safely remove and treat hazardous lead, chromium and zinc paints. Worldwide millions of homes, public buildings, bridges, water and oil tanks, ships, military equipment/vehicles and other structures still require lead or chromium paint removal (realtytimes.com, the National Bridge Inventory and Environmental Health Perspectives Magazine Vol. 110 No. 10 Oct 2002). "Re-med-i-ate" is designed to tackle this mammoth task. "Re-med-i-ate" permanently treats the leachable lead, chromium and zinc contamination during the abatement process. Even very high levels of lead, such as those contained in "red lead" paint are rendered non-hazardous. The costs of application as well as transportation and disposal of the paint residue in all cases are materially reduced substantiated by the low cost associated with reclassifying the waste as non-hazardous for disposal, which also eliminates the related liability and may have a future material affect on ever increasing insurance costs. Solucorp's advanced technologies have qualified for special consideration by major insurance companies in the past as a result of the permanent correction of the metals problem verified by independent testing in accordance with the U.S. EPA Multiple Extraction Procedure (MEP) test. The EPA's MEP test looks at the long-term stability of a treated waste by running it through 10 cycles of acidic extraction fluid. Each cycle is meant to replicate 100 years of advanced weathering with the entire test representing 1,000 years of exposure. Having successfully passed the MEP test on numerous occasions re-emphasizes the long-term stability and capability of the MBS® technology.

"Re-med-i-ate" is the answer to a "greener" world and of great importance instantly provides safety to those exposed to lead and other hazardous metals exposure," states Richard Runco, President.

The foregoing discussion contains forward-looking statements, which are based on current expectations. Actual results, including the timing and amount of revenues recognized, contracts awarded and performed and net income may differ due to such factors as: delays in payment on contracts due to dealings with governmental and foreign entities; fluctuations in operating costs associated with changes in project specifications; economic and other conditions affecting the ability of prospective clients to finance projects; and other risks generally affecting the financing of projects. Investors are cautioned to perform a proper due diligence and consult licensed professionals prior to making an investment decision.
