Blackburn Ventures Invests in EnviroClean

EnviroClean Technologies today announced a strategic investment from Blackbird Ventures, a venture capital firm managed by San Diego software entrepreneur and real estate developer Neil Senturia.

According to Neil Senturia, CEO of Blackbird Ventures, "EnviroClean is the only solution on the market today that meets the current legal requirements for surface cleaning. This service will change the expectations of property owners and facilities managers, and meet the needs of municipalities who have been embarrassed by their own lack of adherence to environmental standards. Our service solves the industry's need to be environmentally compliant at a reasonable price."

EnviroClean is commercializing a patented, closed loop cleaning process that eliminates virtually all run-off water, a problem in surface cleaning. Historically, surface cleaning companies have operated as mom-and-pop shops with power washing equipment and poor waste removal practices. The waste removed by such systems, including toxic substances such as grease and oil, is flushed illegally into storm drains. It goes untreated into our oceans and waterways and creates environmental problems. Strict controls and fines have been imposed for companies that do not comply with state laws. The California Supreme Court recently upheld the San Diego region's stringent regulations to curb urban run-off pollution.

About EnviroClean Technologies: EnviroClean Technologies was founded to commercialize an approach to industrial surface cleaning using patented technology that eliminates illegal run-off and meets environmental laws to prevent toxic pollution from entering storm drains. EnviroClean's scientific technology completely eliminates water run-off with a recovery system that is totally closed-loop. The patented cleaning head continuously recycles and reuses the cleaning water, automatically separating out the waste products. The concentrated waste is contained, producing virtually zero discharge and exceeding the strictest environmental standards. For more information, visit the company's Web site at
