IBA Green Receives Request for Additional Testing of Incinerator Bottom Ash for Solubility
SYMBOL OTCBB: PIEX
NEWPORT BEACH, CA, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – IBA Green, Inc., a wholly owned
subsidiary of Pioneer Exploration Inc. (PIEX) is pleased to announce it
has received a request for further testing of Incinerator bottom ash
from previous processed samples (See press release dated September 21, 2012)
Coal ash, the by-product of burning coal, contains toxic heavy metals
such as arsenic, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, lead and mercury.
Billions of tons of this toxic waste are stored in unlined ponds,
landfills and mines in almost every state.
The further testing will include Total Metals and Metals found in a 1311 TLCP extract. The list of Total Metals to be digested by EPA 3050 and
analyzed by EPA 6010/7471 would include the RCRA list as well as the Priority Pollutant List.
“This is great news for the company’s process to treat and convert IBA
into viable and environmentally responsible construction materials,”
said Angelo Scola, Chairman of the Board of IBA Green. Municipal Solid
Waste Sites across the United States and elsewhere in the world will be
able to start cleaning up the hundreds of toxic land fills, as well as,
treating the ash at the source (Waste to Energy Plants, Steel Plants,
Food Processing Plants, and Mines) using IBA Green’s molecular process
making the material benign and unable to be released back into our
nation’s water supplies.”
“The treated IBA can produce a geoploymer concrete that not only meets
all EPA and ASTM standards, but also makes a concrete that is far
stronger and lasts twice as long as concrete used today in the building
of highways and bridges”, explains Mr. Scola.
