Soley Biotechnology Institute
Alternative earth-friendly technology

From Wiki: The Ocean Cleanup is a foundation that develops technologies to extract plastic pollution from the oceans and prevent more plastic debris from entering ocean waters. The organization was founded in 2013 by Boyan Slat, a Dutch inventor-entrepreneur. . . . The foundation's headquarters are in the city of Delft, the Netherlands.

American Society of Agronomy
A progressive international scientific society that fosters the transfer of knowledge and practices to sustain global agronomy. Based in Madison, WI, ASA is the professional home for 8,000+ members and 14,000+ certified professionals (Certified Crop Advisers and Certified Professional Agronomists) dedicated to advancing the field of agronomy. The Society provides information about agronomy in relation to soils, crop production, environmental quality, ecosystem sustainability, bioremediation, waste management, recycling, and wise land use.

Solar Action Alliance is a group of environmentalists who want to spread the word about the most clean, reliable, and abundant source of renewable energy: the sun.

Using bioremediation to recharge the water table, using simple rainwater harvesting, along with swales, french drains, and planting native plants and trees. Recycling water is another important way to preserve water security by stretching vital resources. New England Log Homes site bioremediation begins, by Derek Gentile, Berkshire Eagle Staff VIDEO (12 minutes): A team in northern Wyoming implemented Bioremediation, an onsite process that uses naturally occurring microorganisms to breakdown petroleum hydrocarbon contaminants in soil. The contamination was the result of oil well exploration.

"[Harry L. Allen, III, Ph.D.] specializes in the cleanup of oil spills, hazardous waste and contaminated soils through bioremediation - the use of microscopic organisms to break down toxic chemicals. He suggests that compost could play a pivotal role in mitigating the Deepwater Horizon spill both on shore and in shallow waters. The only limitation would be that the mixture should not sink"

"Compost is a rich source of bacteria and actinomyces, microscopic organisms that fall somewhere between bacteria and plants. These are equipped with complex metabolic systems that breakdown complex hydrocarbons like those found in oil, pesticides and other common petroleum-based pollutants. . . ." (quoted in BioCycle [sorry, article is now offline] the magazine for advancing composting, organics recycling & renewable energy - click to read the original article).

Cleanenergyworks!! The people who started get what I am talking about. This is the first positive statement anybody has made to define our crisis and point us toward a solution. Simple but effective. Here is one of their commercials currently playing on MSNBC:

Everybody call your elected officials at 202-224-3121 and ask for a clean energy bill. (You have to know your ZIP+4 to look up your representative, unless you know his or her name. You have two state senators, try to talk to both of them, even if they are right-wingers.)

From the time I compiled the research below for Organic Cures, until now eighty-five days deep in the BP oil disaster, I have discovered that there are a lot of bioremediation companies. The science has come a lot farther, a lot faster than I had thought. After setting my Google Alert for the keyword "bioremediation," I have received hundreds of articles and blog postings on the subject. The best of what I have found will be posted at this site.

Gulf Oil Spill - Microbes that will eat oil within weeks [video added 6/12/10]

Aeration and Friendly Bacteria Clean Waterways
Aeration - circulation from top to bottom turns the water over, bringing oxygen into the system. Along with aeration, the restoration includes adding friendly bacteria. The oxygen and bacteria work together to clean the water. For a contractor who has perfected this technique, go to This technique could clean up pollution from the BP explosion.

Finally - an anti-cancer organization that acknowledges that carcinogenic chemicals cause cancer (say it ain't so - ha ha). Yes, household chemicals and carcinogens added to our food supply cause cancer. Here it is, check it out. All the other anti-cancer organizations use their wealth to prevent people from finding out that it is their own food and under the kitchen sink chemicals that are causing the cancer epidemic.

A Simple, Elegant Invention That Draws Water From Air, by Laura Secorun Palet, NPR. "The WarkaWater gathers water from fog and condensation. Named after an Ethiopian fig tree, it consists of a 30-foot bamboo frame and a nylon net. It was invented by an Italian firm and three of them are shown here in an Ethiopian village."

Marine microbes 'eat' plastic pollution PhD candidate Julia Reisser was the first to document biological communities living on sand-sized pieces of plastic in Australian waters. "I am excited about this because the plastic eating microbes could provide better solutions for waste disposal practices on land." Study co-author Jeremy Shaw said large numbers of silica-forming algae weighed down their plastic host, potentially causing tiny pieces to sink to the bottom of the ocean. Another article on this study, Japan Times.

Specialized Microbes Clean Stubborn Chemicals From The Environment In a series of new studies, Anca Delgado, a researcher at Arizona State University's Biodesign Institute, examines unique groups of microorganisms, capable of converting hazardous chlorinated chemicals like trichloroetheene (TCE) into ethene, a benign end product of microbial biodegradation. The new studies explore the metabolic activities of a group of microbes known as Dehalococcoides, and propose strategies to improve their effectiveness for environmental cleanup projects involving chlorinated chemicals.
