St Petersburg, Florida — With the disaster in the Gulf keeping everyone on edge looking for a solution, the answer might lay in material manufactured by a Colombian company with an office in Florida.

The company, Global Environmental Technology, has a product that is 100 percent organic and was invented in 1998 by its president, Carlos Forero. He won science competitions in Switzerland and Austria for the product, which encapsulates oil and cleans the material up.

Not only does the product clean up the oil, it can also be recycled for use afterwords. In addition, if birds are contaminated, the product can used for them as well.

You would think that with the disaster in the Gulf, and oil spilling out and heading to the beaches, the Coast Guard would be interested in the product. However, the company says all they are getting is red tape and getting nowhere.

Liz Cabot, Forero’s sister, says the Coast Guard said come back when they got EPA approval.

When EPA reviewed the product and said it could be used, the company went back to the Coast Guard and Cabot says they were told they had to fill out paperwork. Cabot says they have been waiting and waiting for the paperwork to clear.

And while the paperwork is being cleared, the oil continues to spread in the Gulf.
