RAPID INTERVENTION OIL SPILL SUPPRESSION TECHNOLOGY (R.I.O.S.S.T.)

Oil Spill Cleanup

It is significant to note that no other mitigation product commonly in use today claims to “clean-up” the oil spill and they do not even claim to remove, or modify the oil spill, they simply do as claimed by the very name of their product, “dispersant”, which disburses the oil into the water and/or drives it to the bottom. These dispersants are horrifically damaging to the environment, but until now they were the best products known to exist and were the best the oil & gas producers could employ when trying to clean up the inevitable spills.

Our product is the only known product that can be deployed that actually chemically changes the oil, in effect breaking the carbon molecule chain and modifying the oil into a natural protein that is a highly desirable environmentally friendly green benefit for all parties across the industry spectrum.

Fortunately for Shareholders, unfortunately for Mother Earth, tremendous opportunities abound for Golden Avatar, which profits from the environmental damage caused by mega oil spills coupled with the newly insatiable thirst for natural gas utilizing the method of hydraulic fracturing currently playing out in the shale oil boom of the Dakotas and the Texas Permian basin.

That is the process of injecting high pressure water mixed with chemicals into the earth and forcing the natural gas to the surface. Most of this water is removed from the growing (agricultural) cycle and is forever lost. The remaining water needs to be retrieved for reclamation. Estimates of numbers reaching 50% of the water consumed by the year 2020 will be channeled into fracking and away from agriculture during a period of extreme drought.

RIOSST Application

Studies conducted by the Ministry of Scientific Research from the National Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries (NIOF) concluded that Riosst has the ability to absorb nitrogen elements together with a result of such reaction that is not harmful and is in fact beneficial to active marine and river life

Need for RIOSST

Oil persists in the environment with minimum diminishment in toxicity, so that oil which was spilled into our environment 20 years ago is believed to be just as toxic today.

The April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil disaster, which dumped up to 70,000 barrels of oil per day into the Gulf Stream, highlighted the severe environmental and economic need for a viable oil remediation strategy.

In fact, there have been hundreds of oil spills worldwide since the Deepwater Horizon disaster. It is estimated that there are in excess of seventy aging oil rigs similar to the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf, and that a similar fate awaits much of the world’s oceans.

Replacing Dispersants

Dispersants do not remove oil from the water, and common dispersants, such as Corexit, have been found to be toxic to clean-up workers and wildlife. Health effects of dispersants include: headaches; nausea; vomiting; diarrhea; abdominal pains; dizziness; chest pains and tightness; irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs; difficulty breathing; respiratory system damage; skin irrigation and sensitization; hypertension; central nervous system depression; neurotoxic effects; genetic damage and mutations; and cardiac arrhythmia and cardiovascular damage.

Unlike toxic, expensive dispersants, environmentally friendly RIOSST transforms oil into harmless protein and is effective on land, sea and river water environments.

Economy

The method of application is economically superior to conventional systems and is safer as well as faster acting in fighting pollutants with non-toxics. RIOSST offers a significant opportunity for liability mitigation to large oil companies.
