We will again be participating in the annual WM 2012 conference in Phoenix, AZ on February 25 -29. As part of this event for the nuclear remediation industry, we will participate in and sponsor a foursome in the “Dutch Uncle” Charity Golf Event for The Michael Krupinski Memorial Foundation (MKMF) . The event is run by executives of Denuke, Inc.
Proceeds from the Dutch Uncle Golf Tournament, raffle, and purchases benefit the non-profit Michael Krupinski Memorial Foundation Education Fund (MKMF), www.mkmfeducationfund.org. MKMF’s mission is to expand the pipeline of students entering the engineering field to support the nuclear industry’s growing workplace requirements.
Last year at the Phoenix Dutch Uncle Golf Benefit, they generated $20,000 for the MKMF and hope to surpass that amount this year. Significant portions of those funds have gone to programs and summer camps providing middle school-age students the opportunity to experience high-tech engineering careers first hand. One very special activity the Foundation recently has undertaken is providing a grant to the University of Wisconsin to further its capability to provide students remote access and interaction with the University’s reactor operations and its personnel.
Since 2000, M² Polymer Technologies has been a premier supplier of specialty super absorbent products to the environmental remediation industry and has a particularly strong presence in the nuclear remediation sector. Our WASTE LOCK® brand of superabsorbent polymer products are widely known by clean-up contractors across the USA and Canada. Super absorbent technology is highly advantageous in absorbing low level radioactive waste liquids because the superabsorbents expand waste volume by less than 1% — thereby minimizing disposal costs. The polymers are also adept at binding soluble metallic cations and thereby allowing wastes to pass leachability tests (TCLP).
Besides sponsoring a “Dutch Uncle” foursome, M² Polymer will also provide printed golf shirts and golf balls as part of the charity gift auction. We believe that our labeled “WASTE LOCK® Golf Balls” will absorb more water than any other kind! (Maybe not a good thing on those pesky water hazards….)
