Raleigh, N.C. — EnSolve CEO is hoping his company can help fix the oil spill covering the Gulf of Mexico. Jason Caplan said his company, EnSolve BioSystems, has been using a process on ships around the world for years that makes oily water from vessels safe in ocean water. Caplan said the technology uses a naturally occurring process. “It has oil degrading microbes, which convert the oil into carbon dioxide and water,” he said.

June 25, 2010 - EnSolve Biosystems, a leader in maritime bioremediation technology, has introduced a new line of products designed to facilitate cleanup of oil from shorelines, beaches, marshes and open waters. The EnSolve ShoreClean products are designed to release concentrated levels of naturally occurring oil-degrading microbes and nutrients into the waters and beaches along the contaminated shoreline. The microbes break down the particles of oil, converting it to water and trace amounts of carbon dioxide.
EnSolve’s European partner, Gertsen & Olufsen, has established an office in Shanghai, China. This presence in Shanghai will further strengthen the possibilities of tapping into the growing market for shipboard and offshore installations in China.

Biotechnology provides solutions to a wide range of marine pollutants. The ferry Peter Wessel, which operates between Norway and Denmark, uses a PetroLiminator 630M treatment system. Protecting the marine environment from oil spills, discharges of oily bilge water and contamination by nonnative organisms carried in ballast water represents three distinct problems, but steady advances in bioremediation and related biotechnologies may provide a common solution.
