Proprietary, caustic-free nanoscale chemistry to serve as catalyst in EMS industrial cleaning solutions for servicing rail car tankers, crude oil barges and above-ground storage tanks throughout North America

NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas (March 7, 2017) – TerraHydroChem, Inc. (THC), an environmental products company that applies innovative chemistry to solve difficult industrial challenges, announced today it has secured a product distribution agreement with EMS Management, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Arrow Material Services headquartered in Sewickley, Pa.

THC officials said the agreement also grants EMS exclusive distribution rights to the North America rail car industry for THC’s special products formulated specifically for the rail car industry including Rail Car CleanseTM (RCC), a blend of organic derivatives that desorbs surface contaminates, Rail Car SolventTM (RCS-100) and multiple other customized products.

EMS Chief Commercial Officer Todd Hull said, “TerraHydroChem’s unique chemistry and powerful product formulations have been a real game changer in the way EMS services rail car tankers, a methodology we intend to standardize throughout Arrow’s North American cleaning operations for rail cars, barges and above-ground storage tanks.  We are excited to offer cleaning services that are not only more effective and cost efficient but also are safer for our personnel to use while being ecocentric.”

THC CEO Don Neville said, “We are very pleased to have formalized a strong and mutually beneficial partnership with EMS through its rail car cleaning business.  While the distribution contract with EMS represents a major step forward for our company, we believe our business relationship presents attractive growth potential for both companies.  Therefore, we look forward to further collaborating with EMS and its new parent company Arrow to help further expand their environmentally friendly cleaning capabilities and market reach across the United States and Canada.”

THC President Roger Kubala said, “We worked very hard to accomplish Todd Hull’s number one goal – to develop highly effective products for his rail car cleaning operations that are safe for his employees to use and friendly to the surrounding environment.  By doing so, we have established a trusting relationship that has become the cornerstone of our mutually beneficial partnership.”

TerraHydroChem’s products are blended with plant-based constituents, making them safe, non-toxic and bio-degradable.  Test results have shown TerraHydroChem’s cleansing formulations and associated application runoff routinely produce “non-detect” readings.  Performance at this level sets a new standard upon which the hydrocarbon industry can rely, particularly when they are striving to comply with or exceed the stringent environmental, industrial and regulatory standards required in today’s business environment.
