Auxquimia has approached Brazilian market supported by ICL Brazil back in May this year.
Italian oil Group ENI has chosen Auxquimia to provide firefighting foam concentrates to all their sites in Italy until 2021.
Auxquimia has been back in october 2016 in the Conference organized by PERN, major Oil storage operator in Poland, presenting and testing new products.
Auxquimia has been in the SAA-IAFPA FireFighting Foam Seminar in Singapore presenting some very interesting results about firefighting foam testing with AFFFs and Fluorine Free foams.
Public institution DHMI (Agency which coordinates all Turkish airports) launches an annual tender very similar to Spanish AENA to supply firefighting foam concentrate to all the National airports.
The Air Force has awarded a $6.2 million contract to to ICL Performance products to replace all their firefighting foam used in fire vehicles with an environmentally responsible foam to reduce the risk of possible contamination of soil and groundwater.
GALP Energia has eventually granted Auxquimia a 5 year contract for the supply of all their firefighting foam concentrates in the refineries of Sines and Matosinhos.
In the last decade there have been many advances in foam for firefighting. Since 2001 the multinational 3M ceased to manufacture surfactants and fluorinated AFFF foams due to the ban on PFOS (perfluorooctyl sulfonates), a flurry of development has been carried out by manufacturers of fluorinated derivatives and foams.
A world free of C8 and fluoro-compounds is not unattainable, writes Alberto Menéndez of Auxquimia.
