EarthClean Corporation is a Minnesota-based start-up company whose mission is to develop and introduce environmentally friendly and innovative technologies to help firefighters perform at a higher level.

Clean Tech Division winner and Grand Prize recipient of the 2010 Minnesota Cup competition as “Minnesota’s Top Breakthrough Business Idea”, EarthClean Corporation has a clear mission and sees a bright future.

The company’s first product, TetraKO™, is a direct response to the growing concern over the toxicity of existing firefighting foams, super absorbent polymer-based fire suppressants, and phosphorus and ammonia dioxide–based retardants. These suppressants and retardants can be harmful to fish, mammals, plants and the watershed.
