OUR STORY

Rethinking Remediation From the Ground Up  


Chris Young, founder of Biotech Restorations was born with chemistry in his blood. A third generation chemist, he launched his career straight out of college and has worked in the industry in a variety of roles ever since.   

Through the years, as industry put more and more emphasis on production and virtually zero on environmental health side-effects, Chris was consistently tasked with the challenge of cleaning up the dirty work associated with mass chemical production.


By 2001, Chris had had enough of solving problems associated with loose industry standards and decided to take matters into his own hands.

Armed with years of experience, Chris had gleaned an understanding of where the damage was being done, how it was being covered up, and what needed to happen to begin to solve the bigger problem.  The chlorination in insecticides, pesticides and other compounds was blocking the indigenous bacteria from secreting the enzymes that were needed to allow Mother Nature to de-chlorinate and breakdown these cancer-causing contaminants.


Knowing where to look, Chris and his team members were soon able to generate lab level positive results in remediating chlorinated  soil contaminants. The dedicated work continued and expanded to include remediation solutions for  a broad range of the most hazardous commercial chemicals and contaminants being commercially sold and appearing in the soil at harmful levels.  


After much trial and error, Chris was able to consistently and commercially  demonstrate efficacy of our solution in the field. He knew then that he could put together specialty baskets of proteins that mimicked those being blocked by chlorination. And he knew that these products and solutions were ready for commercialization.


When Chris and I met in 2013, I had nearly 10 years of environmental and biotech experience and had just completed a 3 year role as global head of environment for a biotech company where we were focused on cleaning up wastewater around the world. This unique perspective allowed me to quickly understand that Chris had developed something extremely special. And I also understood some of the challenges in commercializing disruptive technologies in the field of environmental management. Before formalizing a plan to join Chris and launch Biotech Restorations in its current form, I wanted to ensure that we had the answer to two key questions:


1) Could we technically, efficiently solve for these huge real world problems that were being handed down to next generations?


2) Could we also do this while saving clients significant money?


With the answer to those questions being an emphatic yes, in February we transformed Chris’ decade long proving ground effort into the commercial enterprise you see here. The demand for our solution is massive and difficult to quantify due to its sheer size and scope. 


In-Situ Oxidative Technologies, Inc. (ISOTEC) is a full-service environmental firm dedicated to delivering the industry's leading technologies, designs and operating techniques. Since 1995, ISOTEC has revolutionized soil and groundwater remediation through both proprietary and partner, in-situ chemical oxidation and reduction and bioremediation technologies that destroy and/or degrade a wide range of contaminants in soil and groundwater. 

  • We believe that ISOTEC is staffed by motivated and highly skilled professionals dedicated to resolving complex environmental issues. Each ISOTEC professional understands the unique balances and responses of subsurface matrices and is trained to anticipate and respond safely and effectively to all field activity. 
  • ISOTEC maintains a research and development laboratory with the capability to perform custom treatability studies. The laboratory is registered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and maintains all necessary regulatory agency notifications needed in compliance with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) for treatability testing laboratories.
  • ISOTEC does not advocate any single technology or amendment line and can offer the optimal technologies/amendments to match site setting, contaminants and concentrations, objectives, and time lines. 
  • ISOTEC has shared that it has experience implementing more than 1,000 field sale applications and over 500 laboratory bench-scale studies. 
  • ISOTEC and Biotech Restorations are in the process of rolling out BR's unique and proven solutions for remediating contaminants in soil, as a key menu item for ISOTEC's suite of disruptive and cutting edge technology solutions. This relationship is already responsible for the $20+ million NE Utility opportunities in the Pipeline Highlights below.

From an environmental health perspective, the positive effects of remediating hazardous soil contaminants and reducing prolonged exposure to toxic chemicals, is expected to have far reaching implications that are beyond our current scope of measurement.


"It's a great feeling that our vocation also happens to eliminate toxic and cancer causing contaminants in soils that are in and around our everyday lives. Chris has spent several decades leading us to the point where our solution, versus moving the problem into someone else's backyard, is economically advantageous and impossible to ignore. And we're excited that 9 out of 10 millenials have mandated sustainable investing as part of their core principles."

-David Fennema, CEO

What We Have Accomplished So Far

Biotech Restorations is proud that we've demonstrated our solution's capability at a commercial level beyond all reasonable doubt. Recently Biotech's solution was used to reduce and eliminate PCB soil contamination at an 8-acre site in California to below the state's stringent residential cleanup levels. That site was then awarded a "clean closure" letter by California EPA, and the site is now being developed for a new public middle school. The decision to use Biotech's green remediation product saved the school more than 50%, or over $600,000 from the typical "dig & haul" alternative option where contaminated soil is hauled away and reburied at a permitted landfill. Dig & haul produces a massive carbon footprint and spreads contaminated dust across the local residential neighborhoods . Through this and other successfully completed cleanups, Biotech is now on a clear pathway for nationwide regulatory approval to provide our green product solutions to clients and customers from California to New York and from Maine to Florida and every state in between.

Exciting News!

over 1 year ago

January 16, 2018 

I wanted to take a moment to thank the investors who’ve joined with Biotech in restoring toxic polluted land to a safe, clean condition and beneficial use. I want to pass along two important new business developments that I’m confident you’ll appreciate.

First, Biotech has been selected to introduce the company’s proprietary remedial process at the Battelle Conference this April in Palm Springs, CA. Environmental professionals from around the world attend this annual gathering to learn what’s new in the field of environmental remediation. We anticipate significant industry interest in Biotech’s low impact, low cost, green approach to cleaning up polluted properties.

Second, Biotech has been chosen for two significant trials and will be receiving two different sets of soil samples within the next couple of weeks; one from one of the world’s largest oil companies and the second from one of the world’s largest environmental engineering and consulting groups. When we receive these soil samples, Biotech will test treat various proprietary BioBlend product formulations to determine which product formulation will eliminate the target pollutants most efficiently in the customer’s soil. These trials are not a guarantee that a contract will follow.  However, in both cases the large customers are paying us to perform these trials. And the fact that Biotech is on the remediation radar of these important prospective customers is worthy of bringing this news to your attention.

Stay tuned for more exciting developments; this is just the start.
