The EPA estimates that 40-60% of contamination pouring into oceans, streams, and rivers is caused by storm water runoff. For the first time ever, the EPA is now forcing municipalities to do something about it. EPA consent decrees have created $30+ billion in mandated municipal spending of storm water/sewer overflow improvements. Abtech’s (ABHD) Smart Sponge technology is the first antimicrobial application for storm water registered with the EPA for outdoor use. Waste Management (WM) has partnered with Abtech to market and sell a stormwater runoff solution directly to municipalities. The company announced they have 80+ municipal proposals in various stages of progress. Listen to CEO Glenn Rink and VP Bjurnolf White as they talk about the municipal opportunity as well as many other applications for the technology.
