Green Boom is dedicated to removing single use plastic wastes from the oil spill cleanup process by replacing them with completely biodegradable, water repellent, oil-only absorbents. Founded by Sudhir Sharma, PhD and Yulin Deng, PhD, Green Boom is changing how oil spill cleanup is conducted and will ensure a greener future. Green Boom’s family of absorbent products has earned the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) BioPreferred Certification with 100% Certified Biobased Product. Green Boom’s 100 percent biodegradable oil spill prevention, response and remediation products help clean the environment, while also saving time and costs. Our patent-pending biomass up-cycling technologies use only sustainably sourced agricultural wastes and textiles made from low-value fibers. Our technologies render these materials water repellent and selective to oil absorption. Our absorbents can be used on land, marine, and industrial environments.
