Envirogen Wins Research & Development Award

Today the Research & Development Council of New Jersey presented its Thomas Alva Edison Patent Awards honoring the most critical Research & Development advancements of 2000. Envirogen received its award for its patent covering "Biodegradation of Gasoline Oxygenates". MTBE is the most commonly used gasoline oxygenate and a widespread groundwater contaminant. Envirogen's patent facilitates site remediation for MTBE contamination in a safe and cost effective manner.

Alan Main, Chairman of the Research & Development Council of New Jersey, said, "The 2000 Thomas Alva Edison Patent Award winners made bold strides in diverse and significant fields, illustrating the outstanding R & D capabilities within New Jersey's corporate and academic institutions." The other award winners for 2000 are Princeton University, Novartis Pharmaceutical Corporation and Rutgers University.

Envirogen is currently working with the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency as part of EPA's MTBE Treatment Technology Demonstration Program. Envirogen and EPA recently agreed upon a program to demonstrate Envirogen's proprietary in situ biotreatment technology for subsurface cleanup of MTBE contaminated groundwater. The field demonstration will take place at the Port Hueneme Naval Station in California with funding provided by the Department of Defense and the EPA.
