Company Claims New Product Cleans Toxic Chemicals From Mayflower Oil Spill

A company is testing its product called FFC solution on the oil in Lake Conway to help rid of toxic chemicals.
MAYFLOWER, AR -- It has now been seven months since about 5,000 barrels of oil began flowing through a Mayflower neighborhood after the Pegasus Pipeline ruptured. Now, a new product claims to rid the water and soil of its toxic chemicals. Even Mayor Randy Holland is backing the claim.

The product is called FFC Solution. It's organic and made of four plant extracts. FFC breaks down oil, fat and grease to the molecular level and allows natural bacteria to consume it.

For three-and-a-half years, Glynn Barber with Fog Free Technologies has been testing out FFC Solution in the agricultural setting. Now he's in Mayflower this week testing this product in areas hit by the oil spill.

"Much like the movie The Matrix, it basically breaks everything down and gives it about a one billion percent more surface area for the natural bacteria to come in and consume it," said Glynn Barber, Fog Free Technologies.

Barber says not only will it clean the damaged site, but also remediate it within 24 to 132 hours. Mayflower residents who've heard of FFC Solution are calling on Barber to come out to their homes to do testing.

"The product is very safe. I mean we've been consuming it and using it in fish and wildlife. We have toxicity reports on rainbow trout," Barber said.

Barber's goal now is to find an authority who can help establish a launch site and do a controlled test.

"We just need the entity that will say OK, hold our hand, this is what we want the samples to come from then these samples come to this lab, so it's completely controlled by the state so they can see there is no Mickey Mouse going on," Barber said.

Holland said he saw the same demonstration and is impressed by the product. He says it could solve the oil problems in his city. Holland is currently setting up meetings with ADEQ and Game and Fish to start discussions on a controlled test.
