The environmental industry is very well aware of the challenges involved in the remediation of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). NASA and Scientific Specialists, Inc. (located at the University of Central Florida) have developed a revolutionary product to extract and destroy PCBs in-situ (in place). This patented product is called activated metal treatment system or AMTS, and was first developed to treat painted surfaces. TEA, Inc. was the first licensee of this technology and is currently performing several laboratory studies for clients to determine efficacy, as well as developing new formulations to treat a variety of impacted media. Although there is no silver bullet to eliminate the PCB problem nationwide, AMTS is proving to be a viable technology providing outstanding results. Laboratory and field-scale tests have demonstrated the removal of > 94% of total PCBs from various industrial paints within three weeks.

TEA, Inc./RemQuest announces an agreement with JODER Consulting, Inc. (JODER) which establishes a vehicle through which our green and sustainable remediation products and services can be purchased through an SDVOSB to contractors working on Federal sites. This agreement offers a definite advantage to our customers when pursuing government contracts.

JODER was established by General Joe Oder, a retired U.S. Army Brigadier General, and is a certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), located in Destin, Florida. Gen. Oder’s background in the U.S. Army has given him the necessary project management skills and understanding of the federal marketplace to prepare and deliver products to government standards on time and within budget.

According to Gen. Oder, “the marketing agreement between JODER and TEA, Inc./RemQuest will afford the federal marketplace direct access to some of the world’s premier environmental remediation products for use at federal facilities in the United States and around the globe. Not only will we be able to help the federal government with their environmental remediation concerns, we’ll also be helping the government meet their socioeconomic goals and Executive Order 13360 which directs that at least 3 percent of all federal agencies’ contracting dollars go to businesses owned by service-disabled veteran-owned businesses. As such, coupling JODER’s strategy consultants and contracting vehicles with TEA, Inc./RemQuest’s line of green and sustainable environmental remediation products and technologies provides a common sense approach to environmental problem solving.”

For more information on this newly established alliance, contact Dr. Brad Droy at or 850-231-1939.

TEA, Inc. recently implemented an ENGINEERED_PHYTOREMEDIATIONSM pilot study (EnPhySysSM) at an active chemical facility on the West coast. The plantation consists of 80 trees, including 13 different species. The purpose of the pilot study is to evaluate and select a species of tree(s) to hydraulically control groundwater at the site. The trees were planted in closed bottom TreeWell® units with metered water supplies. The observed transpiration rates and viability of the various species of trees will be used to design a full scale ENGINEERED_PHYTOREMEDIATIONSM  system to affect hydraulic control of groundwater. TEA, Inc. is one of the few remediation companies able to fully implement an ENGINEERED_PHYTOREMEDIATIONSM project at an active industrial/chemical facility. The TEA, Inc. team was able to meet the stringent safety and health requirements set forth by OSHA, Cal OSHA and the client.

To learn more about the benefits of EnPhySysSM, please contact Mr. Wes Theriot at 225-767-3819 or
