GK-IT Environmental Services

GK-IT Environmental Services was established in February 2003 when current management realised that South African industry was in need of an alternative to the traditional ‘dig-and-dump’ approach to accidental petroleum spillages. GK-IT is based on a novel approach to the bioremediation of petroleum-based contaminants, developed by Chris Cooper. Product development and testing in the field was followed logically by the establishment of a local production plant in March 2004. GK-IT Environmental Services holds a number of patents, and manufactures a range of environmental protection and rehabilitation products. This includes a variety of locally developed and manufactured hydrocarbon and chemical absorbents, bioremediation products, environment-friendly cleaning chemicals, pollution-control spill kits, used-oil recovery stations, and oily-water separators.
