Allonnia and Terra Systems Form Distribution Partnership for 1,4 D-Stroy™ In Situ Bioremediation Solution

Allonnia and Terra Systems Form Distribution Partnership for 1,4 D-Stroy™ In Situ Bioremediation Solution

Allonnia, the bio-ingenuity company dedicated to extracting value where others see waste, today announced a North American distribution agreement with Terra Systems for Allonnia’s 1,4 D-Stroy™ in situ bioremediation solution. As a distribution partner, Terra Systems will work with their network to deploy the commercialized solution to contaminated groundwater sites in the US and Canada. Allonnia will continue to provide technical support of 1,4 D-Stroy to the Terra Systems team and customers. 

The ‘forever chemical’ 1,4-dioxane has been widely used for industrial chemical processes since the 1950s, and one of the main challenges it presents is its persistence in the environment as it does not naturally degrade. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency lists it as one of the most prevalent emerging contaminants and a likely human carcinogen. While there are no federal regulations yet governing 1,4-dioxane levels in drinking water, wastewater or other water sources, 18 states have established some degree of regulation or recommended guidelines.

Allonnia 1,4 D-Stroy™ is a remediation technology capable of degrading 99% of 1,4-dioxane in contaminated groundwater. Utilizing the power of nature, 1,4 D-Stroy employs highly specialized microbes that engage with 1,4-dioxane, ingest it, and render it into harmless byproducts – water and carbon dioxide. The natural solution is easy and convenient to operate on-site to deliver the required volume of microbes directly into contaminated groundwater at prescribed depths and intervals.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Terra Systems to expand the reach of our 1,4 D-Stroy™ solution,” said Chuck Price, Chief Commercial Officer at Allonnia. “This partnership not only enables us to leverage Terra System’s extensive network but also reinforces our commitment to providing transformational biological solutions. Together, we can make a significant impact in addressing 1,4-dioxane groundwater contamination challenges, protecting both the environment and public health.”

Since its launch in May 2023, 1,4 D-Stroy™ has demonstrated success through deployment at several contaminated sites across the US, showcasing its efficacy and adaptability. This partnership with Terra Systems aims to extend these benefits to a broader range of locations, enhancing 1,4-dioxane remediation efforts across North America.

“Partnering with Allonnia to distribute 1,4 D-Stroy aligns perfectly with our mission to promote environmental sustainability and innovative solutions,” said Dick Raymond, President of Terra Systems. “We are confident that Allonnia’s technology is a great addition to our bioremediation portfolio and enhances our services to better support our customers.”
