Turning brownfields into green fields
- Funding to Date*
ThermO+™ is an amazing natural microbe with the ability to break down really tough compounds like PAHs and PCBs. ThermO+™ effectively eats these compounds for lunch.
The more than 450,000 Brownfield sites and 1300 Superfund sites in the U.S. contain 100 billion tons of toxic soil—enough to cover New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania one-foot deep.
Allied Microbiota develops microbes to degrade environmental contaminants. Their technology can tackle the most recalcitrant organic pollutants and break them down into harmless byproducts. Allied Microbiota uses a proprietary microbial strain, ThermO+™, to eliminate polychlorobiphenyls (PCBs) and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), prominent soil contaminants, and dioxins, a prominent water contaminant. Treating contaminated sites restores land value and promotes businesses to build on formerly unusable land.
