Millions of gallons of oil already threatened the Gulf Coast and Eastern Seaboard when New Orleans businessman John Houghtaling met actor and environmentalist Kevin Costner and his longtime friend and business partner, Patrick Smith. Houghtaling was looking for a solution and Costner had spent the past 15 years investing in a centrifuge technology that would make it possible for the petroleum industry to operate safely, without threatening the environment with oil spills. Having already been proven a successful tool for oil recovery on smaller scale oil clean-up operations, the marriage between this environmental technology and the drive and perseverance found in Kevin, John and Patrick marked a crucial turning point in finding a solution to this cataclysmic event.
From its inception, Ocean Therapy Solutions’ technology has been designed as a first line of defense for oil spills. Our devices are able to collect crude oil as soon as a spill occurs, helping to avoid the devastating and irreversible environmental damage that sadly has become all too common in recent years.
Blue Planet Solutions was formed as the parent company to Ocean Therapy Solutions. BPS will be responisble for applying the same prinicples used in the Gulf oil spill cleanup effort to the global markets outside of the United States.
