10/27/2010: Government Estimates of Oil in Gulf May Miss Mark - Dynamic's Dyna-Aqua Oil Sorb Discovers what NOAA's Canisters Could Not

Cocodrie, LA-- On a dock in Cocodrie, Paul Sammarco unfurls a 15-foot long piece of fabric, a highly absorbent cotton-like material, which may spark a whole new debate over how much oil remained in the Gulf of Mexico this summer. Dr. Sammarco and a team from the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) sampled waters two months after BP plugged its crippled well. He was astonished at what he found, samples that roughly mirrored the official estimates of NOAA scientists taken weeks earlier at the height of the spill and far closer to the spill site. "I kept looking at the data and looking at the data and asking, 'why are they the same?'" Sammarco said. "They shouldn't be the same."  More | Download Report (PDF)

Dyna-Aqua Oil Sorb Used by Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium to Determine the Presence of Petroleum Hydrocarbons and Corexit® in Water involved with the BP Oil Spill

The BP-Deep Horizon oil spill of April 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico was the worst in US history and one of the worst in the world. Contamination of inshore and offshore waters, beaches, salt marshes, bays, etc. has been widely reported, along with ill effects on estuarine and marine fauna. Reports of petroleum hydrocarbon and dispersant concentrations in the water have been variable. Shortly after the leaking well had been capped in July, the federal government announced that most of the 200,000,000 gallons of crude oil released into the Gulf of Mexico was no longer evident.

On August 20, 2010, Dr. Paul W. Sammarco of the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) conducted reconnaissance on the NW side of Timbalier Island and off Rock Island, Louisiana to determine the presence or absence of petroleum hydrocarbons in inshore Louisiana waters (Terrebonne Bay) using a new, state-of-the-art adsorbent material – Dyna-Aqua Oil Sorb™ from Dynamic Technology, Inc. The composition of petroleum hydrocarbons was determined along with their concentrations in the cloth and estimates of their concentrations in the seawater.

CNBC: August 11, 2010 Dynamic Adsorbents, Inc. (DAI) Drysphere(TM) Alumina Product Prolongs Transformer Life, Promoting High Efficiency Energy Production Drysphere(TM), an activated alumina desiccant agent is proven to most effectively prolong and preserve transformer life by maintaining transformer oil insulation efficiency

DAI's Drysphere offers superior drying capabilities over any other desiccant product on the market, providing maximum performance and extended life of high efficiency oil transformers for energy transmission.

The electrical grid relies upon transformers' continuous delivery of power. When a transformer fails, a power outage occurs. Power outages and other interruptions in the electrical grid cost the U.S. economy at least $150 billion annually, computing to an annual loss of $500 per every woman, man and child in the U.S. Therefore, the removal of moisture and other byproducts of insulation degradation using high quality adsorbents is imperative for overall transformer life.  More

July 21 2010 Edition of Textile World highlights Dynamic Adsorbent new technologies

“Aluminated Textiles” is the feature article in the July - August 2010 edition of Textile World. This article written by Managing Editor Janet Bealer Rodie lays out the novel incorporation of specialty activated aluminas into personal protective devices (PPD) as well as their incorporation into swipe products. Novel materials initially developed by DAI for use in chromatographic and separation technologies are now provided to the textile trade, by impregnating non-woven needlepunched fibers which can be incorporated in masks and garments. This article also introduces our audience to Dyna-Cidal, a unique Dynamic product which provides a level of antimicrobial activity heretofore not available to the scientific and environmental communities.

July 20, 2010 (Atlanta, GA) DAI begins rollout of personal protective devices impregnated with Dyna-Cidal

Dynamic Adsorbents Inc. President and Chief Technical Officer Dr. Mark Moskovitz announced today that sampling and limited production output has begun for the initial personal protective devices impregnated with Dyna-Cidal. This initial product line includes respiratory masks and swipes. Certification for Dyna-Cidal has been obtained from participating CE nations and in the United States is still pending EPA approval. Dyna-Cidal is an anti-biocontaminant, proprietary non-toxic formulation which houses a unique silver compound within the pores of specially formulated alumina. For use in personal protective devices Dyna-Cidal is bonded to non woven fibers. These non woven fibers are produced by Hobbs Bonded Fibers, Inc. of Waco, Texas which applies the Dyna-Cidal material to needlepunched substrates. During extensive in vitro testing, the combination of silver, alumina and a reduction/oxidation agent incorporated in Dyna-Cidal provided protection against microorganism and spores at a speed and cell kill level heretofore not available to the medical and public health communities. The company welcomes inquiries for sampling and product specifications.

June 17, 2010: Feature Textile World Article: Dynamic Adsorbents Partners With Hobbs Bonded Fibers To Develop Cotton And Alumina-based Solution For Removing Oil From Gulf Of Mexico

The British Petroleum (BP) oil spill controversy is raising eyebrows all over the world. Why? Not just because it is spewing an unprecedented volume of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico every day, but because proven technologies are being overlooked that can dramatically reduce the effects of the oil spill on our environment and marine wildlife. Dr. Mark Moskovitz, President and CTO of Dynamic Adsorbents, Inc. (DAI), Norcross (Atlanta) Ga., has spent his career in separation technology and is outraged by the oil spill clean-up decisions.

May 12: Dynamic Adsorbents, Inc.’s Drysphere™ Alumina Answers Natural Gas Hydrate Problem for Oil and Gas Drilling Companies

The recent Gulf of Mexico oil spill devastation has raised awareness about the natural gas hydrate problem experienced by BP. The British global energy giant attempted to impede the flow of crude oil into the sea by implementing a containment dome onto the leaking pipe. Natural gas hydrates formed and clogged the dome after water came into contact with natural gas at high pressure and low temperature settings. Gas hydrates are common threats to the oil and gas industries and can be avoided by taking preventative measures.  DAI, a company dedicated to environmental cleanup and clean energy solutions manufactures the desiccant Drysphere™, a product that potentially avoids the problems BP is facing today.
