M2 Polymer Technologies, Inc. Attains ISO 9001 Certification
June 7, 2011 (West Dundee, Illinois)
M2 Polymer Technologies, Inc. has been assessed and approved by QAS International to the ISO 9001:2008 management systems, standards and guidelines and have been issued an ISO registration certificate.
M2 Polymer Technologies, Inc. was established in January of 2000 and offers over eleven years experience in Super Absorbent Polymers (”SAP”) and specialty chemicals. They are an environmental industry expert in the use of super absorbent polymers for solidification and stabilization of industrial and hazardous wastes. “SAP” are a class of cross-linked, non-biodegradable polymers capable of absorbing and retaining up to 500 times their weight in water. Super Absorbent Polymers are widely used to solidify a wide variety of aqueous wastewaters and sludge with nominal or negligible increase in wastevolume or weight.
M2 Polymer Technologies, Inc. is widely known for their Waste Lock® brand of Superabsorbent Polymer products which are widely used in the environmental industry to treat many types of waste.
Waste streams that benefit from the Waste Lock® Super Absorbent Polymer technology includes:
- Low Level Radioactive Waste (LLRW)
- Metal Plating Waste
- Superfund and FUSRAP Site Wastes
- Nuclear Power Plant Waste
- Sludge with Heavy Metals
- Medical Waste & Bodily Fluids
- Unused Latex Paint Waste
GLOBAL TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC. ENTERS MASTER TEAMING AGREEMENT WITH M2 POLYMER TECHNOLOGIES, INC.

Economics of Super Absorbent Polymers & Waste Stabilization
The use of super absorbent polymer (superabsorbent polymer or SAP) in waste stabilization offers many advantages over more conventional absorbents. These advantages include:
• Minimal increase in waste volume or weight
• Lower transport fees due to less loads
• Lower total landfill disposal fees due since waste volume has not expanded
• Faster processing time and consummate labor savings
• No exothermic reaction to release organics or PCBs into the environment.
• Ability to bind most soluble Heavy Metals to prevent leaching
Conventional absorbents include lime kiln dust, Portland cement, dried corn cob, shredded newspaper, bentonite clay and saw dust. These conventional absorbents are relatively cheap – priced in the $20 to $50 per ton range. Why would someone use a super absorbent polymer that can cost $2.00/lbs or more?
