Bothell-based HaloSource, Inc., the company that develops and manufactures HaloKlear water clarification products for the construction, mining and industrial applications, has announced that it has received the Washington State Department of Ecology’s General Use Level Designation (GULD) for its HaloKlear BHR-P50 hybrid polymer used in conjunction with Chitosan Enhanced Sand Filtration (CESF) system.

“At HaloSource our mission is to make water better by focusing on the chemistry of water clarification,” VP & Managing Director of HaloSource Tim Joyce said. “We appreciate the additional validation by our local Department of Ecology in expanding the awareness and market for environmentally responsible solutions.”

The Washington State Department of Ecology (DOE) is recognized as having one of the nation’s most stringent testing standards for product approval and influences regulation changes in other key environmentally focused states. Prior to approval, the HaloKlear BHR-P50 underwent extensive toxicity testing and in market site performance reviews.

Under GULD approval, BHR-P50 may be used in Washington, subject to certain use level conditions, to clear turbid water in industrial applications. This is the fourth HaloKlear product that has received WA GULD approval. HaloKlear BHR-P50 is a unique hybrid polymer that offers a greener alternative to commodity chemicals.
