Growmate International™ has engaged in several universities to test and conduct various field and laboratory research studies.
Product studies have been conducted using independent testing procedures
Pennsylvania State University Conducted a Lagoon Volatile Organic Compound Test using ManureMax. Odor decreased by 43%, solids decreased by 15.9% and VOC* decreased by 40.9%
North Carolina State University Conducted a Volatile Fatty Acid (VFA) reducing methane by 34% as well a considerable decrease on acetic acid, butanoic, propanoic acid and toluene.
The contaminated soil was treated using RemediAde™ and has shown a marked decrease in concentration of site COCs.
Per the approved landfarm application and closure plan the criteria for closure of the landfarm is three consecutive sampling events where concentrations are either non-detect for contaminants or below background levels determined by sampling the area prior to the landfarm construction.
The only contaminants that have been detected in the landfarmed soils are TPH-DRO and TPH-GRO. No VOCs have been detected in the treated soils since placement in the landfarm.
