STAMFORD, Conn., May 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Corent Company, in cooperation with Evergreen Flying, Inc., both Louisiana based companies, propose using the 1295 hp Turbine Air Tractor aircraft to apply Green Earth Technologies' (Pink Sheets: GETG) G-MARINE Fuel Spill Clean-UP! (NANO Emulsion Technology) Oil Dispersant over the affected areas of the BP/Trans Ocean Rig Collapse in the Gulf of Mexico. Utilizing 7 air tractor 802 aircraft, 14 square miles of oil spill could be treated daily. All three companies aim to break down the oil spill and prevent it from approaching the coast as well as treating the affected coastline with their proposal which is currently being seeded to government officials.
"The planes are on the ground and ready to go, we are just waiting for the green light from BP, EPA and FEMA," said Jeff Marshall, Chairman & CEO of Green Earth Technologies. "There seems to be a lot of confusion as to who has the authority to approve these types of initiatives, so we hope to cut through the red tape as quickly as possible."
The Corent Company, in cooperation with Evergreen Flying Inc.'s plan is to use multiple aircrafts treating a wider area simultaneously to areas in greatest need, effectively multiply the effect of the efforts both in the air and on the ground. Each aircraft can hold a capacity of 800 gallons and can travel up to 200 mph, flying as low as 50 feet off the water. At a 40:1 ratio, the company can mix 20 gallons of G-MARINE Fuel Spill Clean-UP! to 780 gallons of water (800 gallons total) to cover between 10 - 160 acres of water surface, depending on the spill's density in a given area.
"Our crews are experienced at operating in low altitude high speed environments, so the risk profile is lower and the results will be better achieved, especially by using a ultimate biodegradable and environment safe dispersant such as G-MARINE Fuel Spill Clean-UP!," said Brandon Mulhern of Evergreen Flying Service working with Corent Company.

G-MARINE Fuel Spill Clean-UP! is a unique blend of plant derived, water based and ultimate biodegradable ingredients specifically formulated to quickly emulsify and encapsulate fuel and oil spills. These plant derived ingredients are processed to form a colloidal micelle whose small particle size (1-4 nanometers) enables it to penetrate and breakdown long chain hydrocarbons bonds in oils and grease and holds them in a colloidal suspension when mixed with water. Once oil has been suspended in a nano-colloidal suspension, there is no reverse emulsion; the oil becomes water soluble allowing it to be consumed by resident bacteria in the water. This dispersant formula is protected by trade secrets pursuant to Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA) Standard CFR-1910 1200. The ingredient list has been reviewed by the US EPA and contains no ingredients considered hazardous by OSHA.
"We are very concerned about the impact of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and are ready to jump into action alongside the Corent Company and Evergreen Flying Inc.," said Jeffrey Loch, Founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Green Earth Technologies. "Our Fuel Spill Clean UP! is an oil and gas spill remedy with NANO emulsion technology that is needed to help solve the devastation. GET products all meet the highest biodegradability ranking determined by ASTM Standards and we urge consumers to call their congressman and make sure they act fast and GET going!"
