Idea to reality: EarthClean needed certification by the USDA Forest Service in order to use their corn-based firefighting product TetraKO to fight forest fires. The company also wanted to develop a liquid version.

AURI’s role: AURI scientists are working with EarthClean on product development and testing.

Outcomes: With testing and product development help from several of AURI’s scientists, EarthClean had commercial quantities of TetraKO powder available for the 2012-13 wildfire season, and now, work on the liquid version of the firefighting product is well underway.
