Discussion on Environmental Impact of Colloidal Chemistry

Colloidal chemistry is one of this century's most promising advances in environmental science. It offers hope for our environmentally challenged future. It provides a new solution to the personal and environmental hazards of toxic solvents and cleaners and the free radicals emitted by them.

This new chemistry makes possible the creation of non-hazardous, non-fuming, non-caustic, non-corrosive, non-combustible, non-explosive, non-hazardous cleaners and solvents from extracts of NATURAL plants. While highly effective, they are exceptionally gentle, safer and readily biodegradable.

They are healthier for people and phenomenally effective in preventing further environmental contamination. The price is lower or competitive with hazardous chemicals. Another economic benefit is potential savings in Workman's Compensation claims, cost of protective clothing, expensive disposal procedures and fire insurance.

One container of colloidal concentrate can replace dozens of hazardous chemicals, including agricultural, household, industrial, marine, vehicle and boat maintenance; dairy, farm and pet care chemicals.

Because the solution was documented as "readily bio-degradable" the EPA stipulates no specific disposal requirements. It may be poured down sewers or onto the ground.

The precise ingredients and blending process are proprietary. The ingredients conform to and are defined as non-hazardous under OSHA Standards 29 CFR-1910 1200.

The heart of this chemistry is the technology used to create a "colloidal micelle." Sub-microscopic particles are created in a microscopic field similar to a magnetic field. However the molecular attraction is not the usual attraction between positive and negative poles. Rather, it is between like poles. An analogy would be that negative attracts negative and positive attracts positive.

The micelle has a hydrophilic (water seeking) pole and a hydrophobic (water repelling) pole. The hydrophobic poles attract each other, thus forming the interior of the micelle. The hydrophilic poles form a tough outer surface.

When a micelle comes in contact with a hydrocarbon molecule, the center of the micelle bonds via homologous attraction to a similar hydrophobic hydrocarbon. It disrupts the attraction to other hydrocarbon molecules and/or to the surface.

The action of a single micelle is multiplied by billions of other micelles. The molecular level emulsification process penetrates highly viscous and sticky materials, lifting them from the surface to which they are adhered.

Considering the damage inflicted on life and the planet by harsh cleaners and solvents, colloidal chemistry is an exceptionally advance towards environmental preservation.
