Local company capitalizes on environmental remediation technology

July 12, 2012

New Orleans has its many distinct smells: the fragrant aroma of flowers in the Garden District, alternating waves of fried food and natural horse musk in the French Quarter … and the potency emanating from the dorm dumpsters in Uptown’s University area.

Vice president Ryan Egle founded the environmentally conscious company with his mother and brother.
Concerning that last — residents who live near Tulane University might notice an absence of “eau de dumpster” in their neighborhood these days, thanks to locally based Eglé Solutions. The company offers environmentally safe and green conscious products that are customized for clients.

Eglé Solutions is a local company that helps businesses keep their facilities clean with environmentally-friendly products and processes and help them reduce energy consumption through self funded upgrades.

“We focus on saving our customers money,” said owner Ryan Eglé. He also noted that they now wait until after a demonstration to inform potential customers that the less expensive products are also some of the safest to the planet. The company developed SmartClean, a cleaning program that uses green products, and EnergyWise, an energy efficiency program that designs lighting and energy plans for businesses interested in efficiency and sustainability. Drain/Trap/Sewer (DTS) is the firm’s automated bio-remediation process that removes FOG (fat, oil and grease) and maintains clean flowing drains.

Eglé specializes in facilities where harsh chemicals are typically used. “We only use natural ingredients with safe, harmless microbes and bio-organic catalysts,” Eglé said. The two-year old business began around Eco Concepts green cleaning product manufacturer, with a business model focused on helping businesses save money and improve their environmental impact. Eglé joined the Green Games to “support the movement for environmental responsibility,” he said. “Conscious environmental decisions can help companies save and protect the health of our children and future generations.”
