AbTech Industries, Inc. (www.abtechindustries.com) is an environmental technologies firm dedicated to providing innovative solutions to communities and industry addressing issues of water pollutants and contamination. Its products are based on polymer technologies capable of removing hydrocarbons, sediment and other foreign elements from still (ponds, lakes and marinas) or flowing water (curbside drains, pipe outflows, rivers and oceans). The company currently holds seventeen patents. AbTech's Smart Sponge®, and Smart Sponge® Plus (which is approved by the EPA for the reduction of coliform bacteria), are engineered for use in catch basins, drainage vaults and end of pipe applications to treat large amounts of stormwater runoff. AbTech Industries can design stormwater solutions scalable to any amount of stormwater for any municipal, commercial or industrial application. AbTech's current customers include Municipalities, Beach Communities, State Agencies, Federal Agencies and other entities faced with stormwater problems. Implementing AbTech's Smart Sponge® Plus technology, with prefabricated Ultra Urban Filters or custom built vaults, into any beach community effectively and efficiently reduces the amount of coliform bacteria, debris, and hydrocarbons, to help keep beaches in compliance with stormwater regulations.
