US EPA Grants Biofriendly New Product Registration
Biofriendly Corporation announced today that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved new product registrations for its Green Plus® liquid combustion catalyst after an exhaustive two year review. Green Plus is a breakthrough technology that improves fuel combustion, thus reducing harmful emissions and improving fuel efficiency.
Biofriendly Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Robert W. Carroll acknowledged EPA, noting that “EPA recognized the potential value of Green Plus and worked tirelessly with Company scientists to get the product approved and into commerce.”
Biofriendly is also pleased to have fully resolved a complaint brought against it when a competitor presented false and unsubstantiated information to EPA in November 2005. The competitor’s claims were found to be baseless.
The comprehensive review by EPA also revealed an alleged error in the filing of Biofriendly’s product registration. The claim was that Biofriendly failed to properly describe all of the constituents of the Green Plus product when it was originally registered in 2001. Biofriendly strongly disputed the allegations, but in order to move forward and get back into the market as quickly as possible, the EPA and Biofriendly agreed to a consent decree settlement, allowing Biofriendly to pay a fine for the administrative dispute while admitting no liability.
“This was a difficult situation for both the EPA and Biofriendly,” said Carroll, “and we are very pleased to have moved beyond this distraction and get back to what we do best — innovating to make the planet greener. Green Plus is a highly effective solution to the world’s environmental challenges. I would like to thank the members of our team and EPA for working together so effectively to make sure that no stone was left unturned while resolving this issue. We take pride in our product and in the manner in which we do business.”
