Water enhancer first to gain recognition in EPA’s Design for the Environment programme under new Industrial category.
TetraKO, LLC, the fire suppression subsidiary of EarthClean Corporation, has earned recognition under the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Design for the Environment program for its TetraKO biodegradable water enhancer.
TetraKO water enhancer is the first fire suppression product to earn EPA’s DfE recognition under the new Industrial/Institutional product category “Fire Fighting Product”, satisfying the need for an effective and environmentally safe fire suppression alternative.
TetraKO is a cornstarch-based water enhancer that transforms ordinary water into an adhering gel.
An information paper on TetraKO has also been published by the Technology Council of the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC). The white paper was requested after members of the IAFC Technology Committee and Wildland Policy Council attended two days of TetraKO testing at the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) Brayton Fire Training Field.
