SOS Erosion Products
Apart from Matter of Trust, SOS Erosion products, Inc. is creating materials and tools that can help clean-up efforts due to oil spills.
The staff and owners that form the Specialist On Sediment Erosion Company have been affiliated with the erosion business for more than 10 years and the construction business for over 20 years. This company makes plastic barrier panels used primarily for erosion control and has worked with private and commercial companies on state and local levels.
Travis Waddell is the owner of this innovative company which, in response to the oil rig disaster in the Gulf, has created a cost efficient, durable, and reusable water barrier system that appears to work a lot better than plastic booms or booms made of natural fibers designed to soak up crude oil.
Watching the clean-up effort along the Gulf Coast, Waddell saw an opportunity to help protect the coastline as well as get a little exposure for his tiny Ohio company. He began testing the panels by first applying to them an absorbent polyurethane material – and they seem to work.
The cost-efficient, reusable barrier system is easy to install, stock or ship, and is also customizable.
With the current shortage of clean-up supplies, BP and the government would be wise to implement the barrier system SOS Erosion has created, or any other clean-up system created and offered by other ecologically conscious companies, big or small, local or national.
