About George (BUD) IVEY

George (Bud) Ivey, BSc., CES, CESA, P.Chem, EP, the founder of Ivey International Inc., is an organic chemist who continued his studies in geological engineering. Early on in his career, he recognized the greatly overlooked significance of basic organic contaminant phase behaviour, whose solubility and sorption were largely controlled by their inability to form hydrogen bonds with water due to the inherent water chemistry. He also realized that water was not H2O but rather a three-dimensional ‘cluster’ which dictates K and transmissivity in coarse to fine textured geology. Through the clever manipulation of basic contaminant miscibility and water cluster behaviour, Ivey-sol® surfactant techonology was created.

Over the past thirty plus years of international environmental experience to over 50 countries, George has brought an innovative, unique, multi-disciplinary perspective and capacity to every project he has worked on. In addition to his applied research, he is an avid speaker at conferences and workshops, regularly mentors young environmental professionals, and enjoys sharing his knowledge and observations with members of the environmental industry.

  • “We increased the TPH Mass Recovery Rate by 10x, removed TPH-d from vadose zone and lowered groundwater concentrations. Regulatory Agency agrees to a risk based closure in contamination levels continue to decrease.” – Galen Kenoyer, Senior Hydrogeologist, TRC
  • “We accomplished more with $50,000 of Ivey-sol® than we did with the first $500,000 we spent on the site over the previous 4 years. Ivey-sol Increased our rate of contaminant recovery by >400%.” – Daniel Smith, Hydrogeologist, HANDEX of Connecticut
  • “We completed an in-situ pilot-scale application of the Ivey-sol® surfactant technology at an industrial site with VC, DCE and TCE chlorinated contamination. We commenced site remediation with MPE with very good results, but eventually the rate of vapor, dissolved, and DNAPL phase mass recovery reduced over time. The introduction of Ivey-sol significantly increased mass recovery of all phases, leading to our decision to go to full scale, pairing the MPE and Ivey-sol technologies as an effective remediation strategy for the site.” – Dennis Tu, Executive Director China Environment, AECOM
  • “Burns & McDonnell operated a dual-phase vacuum extraction system at an active grain elevator for ~9 years to address a groundwater source consisting of carbon tetrachloride, carbon disulfide, and chloroform…Ivey-sol significantly increased dissolved-phase mass removal and the effects of this increase on DPVE efficiency were observed...B&M was very pleased in the performance of the Ivey-sol and continued support by IVEY staff.” – Eric Dulle, PE, Project Manager, Burns & McDonnell
  • “Ivey-sol® has been proven highly effective at remediating both oil-based contamination and chlorinated solvents in a variety of different soil types, ranging from sands to clays. Given the current need for innovative and cost-effective cleanup technologies, usage of Ivey-sol will significantly increase in the upcoming years.” – Bruce Tunnicliffe, President, Vertex Environmental Inc.
  • “Given the complex nature of in-situ remediation projects, the most appropriate technologies need to be versatile and able to be adapted to various soil types and site-specific hydrogeological conditions. We have found the suite of Ivey-sol® surfactant products, and processes, to be very adaptable, affordable, and effective for the desorption and recovery of significant contaminant mass at our sites.” – J. Peter Misener, Chairman, Ground Force Environmental
  • “In July 2019 we were faced with a 320,000 liter crude oil and produced water spill at a facility in northern Alberta. With our rapid spill response strategy, utilizing the innovative Ivey-sol® surfactant remediation technology, we achieved significant time, cost, and environmentally sustainable cleanup benefits, resolving more than 99% of the spill on the hillside. We and our client were very pleased with the outcome of this project.”
  • “The in-situ application of the Ivey-sol® surfactant technology significantly increased the DNAPL and BTEX mass recovery from the impacted soil and groundwater on-site. We were very pleased by these results leading to our recommending a full scale site application as a rapid and cost effective method to achieve site clean-up.” – Martin Beaudoin, Project Engineer, Sanexen Services
  • “I credit this technology with saving my company tens of thousands of dollars after using it to treat a fuel-oil spill. Drinking water was contaminated and I looked at a number of technologies. They wanted to put recovery towers in and stripper systems costing more than $100,000, and I was told remediation would take five to seven years. But Ivey-sol® did it in less than 18 months saving some $60,000, while meeting stringent environmental standards.” – Peter Clark, President, Clark Oil
  • “Ecologia applied the Ivey-sol 108 surfactant product using an in-situ multi-well sweep application to enhance the rate of LNAPL recovery at an active factory site. The Ivey-sol applications permitted a significant reduction in the LNAPL saturation, leading to a reduction in LNAPL mobility by approximately 3 orders of magnitude. We are, and have been, very pleased with the efficacy, ease of use and reliability of the Ivey-sol remediation technology at our project sites.” – David Holmes, Technical Manager, Ecologia Environmental
  • “At an EU military site the UTCHEM model was able to simulate the Pilot SEAR and that injected fluids were contained within the pilot application area. Further, the simulations estimated an approximate 1000 % increase in jet-fuel oil mass recovery with the application of the Ivey-sol® surfactant technology, compared to water injections without Ivey-sol®. The model also showed that the main process for mass removal during SEAR was production of a micro-emulsion.” – Soren Rygaard Lenschow, Project Manager, NIRAS
  • “After excavation and bio-piling of the soil, the surfactant enhanced bioremediation (SEB®) treatment was applied and the bio-pile was covered. Daily aeration was done during the treatment period. After only 12 weeks, samples were taken from the bio-pile showing that the remediation of the fuel-oil and PAH contamination was completed to the BC Environmental Standards and safe for reuse on-site.” – Tony Robson, Director of Mining & Equipment, Quinsam Coal
  • “We have been using the Ivey-sol® surfactant product developed by Ivey International Inc. since 2006. Our applications have mainly centered on commercial, industrial, oil and gas cleaning and decontamination services. Our general opinion of the product has been positive, as has the technical support we have received from IVEY, making it a reliable resource to meeting our upstream client requirements. I would recommend this product for petroleum storage decontamination applications.” – Lee F. Hunter, CEO, Envirotech International
  • “The project we are now working on is in tight clay soil, 6 meters deep, 35 meters by 20 meters in area. The projected clean-up will be 9 to 12 months...The only thing faster is digging up the site and hauling away the soil. This process is very cost effective and will save between $40,000 to $60,000 compared to the closest available technology that we are aware of.” – Terry Timothy, Manager of Environmental Services, Environmental Services
  • “We used a combination of Ivey-sol® technology and soil excavation. It certainly saved us the headache of having to do more by way of foundation excavation. The result was the important thing. Ivey-sol® was a good add-on to the original excavation and we got the results we wanted.” – Mike Roy, Senior Claims Adjuster, Plant Hope
  • “The name of the game is satisfactory results and closing the file as quickly as possible. Ivey-sol® technology is a big help when excavation isn’t an attractive option.” – Bill McCann, Senior Claims Adjuster, Halifax Insurance
  • “We used Ivey-sol® surfactant technology and experienced significant enhancement of contaminant mass recovery! This technology significantly sped up the remediation project, saving my clients time and money! We were very pleased with the results and would recommend others to try it.” – Dan Smith, Principle Hydrogeologist, Metric Earth Services
  • “With Ivey-sol® SEB® (Surfactant Enhanced Bioremediation), we observed a noticeable drop in the level of contaminants, in bio-piles, within a two-month period.” – Brad Shybunka, Senior Project Manager Operations, Bio-Synergy Resources
  • “Our research has confirmed that the Ivey-sol® surfactant technology increases the controlled solubility and rate of MTBE recovery from impacted soil and groundwater by >740%” “Our research has shown that the Ivey-sol® surfactant technology can increase the controlled solubility rate of PCB into groundwater for mass recovery by >900%.” – Dr. David Craft, University of Alberta

  • “Our research has confirmed that the Ivey-sol® surfactant technology increases the controlled solubility and rate of MTBE recovery from impacted soil and groundwater by >740%” “Our research has shown that the Ivey-sol® surfactant technology can increase the controlled solubility rate of PCB into groundwater for mass recovery by >900%.” – Dr. David Craft, University of Alberta
  • “We increased the TPH Mass Recovery Rate by 10x, removed TPH-d from vadose zone and lowered groundwater concentrations. Regulatory Agency agrees to a risk based closure in contamination levels continue to decrease.” – Galen Kenoyer, Senior Hydrogeologist, TRC
  • “We accomplished more with $50,000 of Ivey-sol® than we did with the first $500,000 we spent on the site over the previous 4 years. Ivey-sol Increased our rate of contaminant recovery by >400%.” – Daniel Smith, Hydrogeologist, HANDEX of Connecticut
  • “We completed an in-situ pilot-scale application of the Ivey-sol® surfactant technology at an industrial site with VC, DCE and TCE chlorinated contamination. We commenced site remediation with MPE with very good results, but eventually the rate of vapor, dissolved, and DNAPL phase mass recovery reduced over time. The introduction of Ivey-sol significantly increased mass recovery of all phases, leading to our decision to go to full scale, pairing the MPE and Ivey-sol technologies as an effective remediation strategy for the site.” – Dennis Tu, Executive Director China Environment, AECOM
  • “Burns & McDonnell operated a dual-phase vacuum extraction system at an active grain elevator for ~9 years to address a groundwater source consisting of carbon tetrachloride, carbon disulfide, and chloroform…Ivey-sol significantly increased dissolved-phase mass removal and the effects of this increase on DPVE efficiency were observed...B&M was very pleased in the performance of the Ivey-sol and continued support by IVEY staff.” – Eric Dulle, PE, Project Manager, Burns & McDonnell
  • “Ivey-sol® has been proven highly effective at remediating both oil-based contamination and chlorinated solvents in a variety of different soil types, ranging from sands to clays. Given the current need for innovative and cost-effective cleanup technologies, usage of Ivey-sol will significantly increase in the upcoming years.” – Bruce Tunnicliffe, President, Vertex Environmental Inc.
  • “Given the complex nature of in-situ remediation projects, the most appropriate technologies need to be versatile and able to be adapted to various soil types and site-specific hydrogeological conditions. We have found the suite of Ivey-sol® surfactant products, and processes, to be very adaptable, affordable, and effective for the desorption and recovery of significant contaminant mass at our sites.” – J. Peter Misener, Chairman, Ground Force Environmental
  • “In July 2019 we were faced with a 320,000 liter crude oil and produced water spill at a facility in northern Alberta. With our rapid spill response strategy, utilizing the innovative Ivey-sol® surfactant remediation technology, we achieved significant time, cost, and environmentally sustainable cleanup benefits, resolving more than 99% of the spill on the hillside. We and our client were very pleased with the outcome of this project.”
  • “The in-situ application of the Ivey-sol® surfactant technology significantly increased the DNAPL and BTEX mass recovery from the impacted soil and groundwater on-site. We were very pleased by these results leading to our recommending a full scale site application as a rapid and cost effective method to achieve site clean-up.” – Martin Beaudoin, Project Engineer, Sanexen Services
  • “I credit this technology with saving my company tens of thousands of dollars after using it to treat a fuel-oil spill. Drinking water was contaminated and I looked at a number of technologies. They wanted to put recovery towers in and stripper systems costing more than $100,000, and I was told remediation would take five to seven years. But Ivey-sol® did it in less than 18 months saving some $60,000, while meeting stringent environmental standards.” – Peter Clark, President, Clark Oil
  • “Ecologia applied the Ivey-sol 108 surfactant product using an in-situ multi-well sweep application to enhance the rate of LNAPL recovery at an active factory site. The Ivey-sol applications permitted a significant reduction in the LNAPL saturation, leading to a reduction in LNAPL mobility by approximately 3 orders of magnitude. We are, and have been, very pleased with the efficacy, ease of use and reliability of the Ivey-sol remediation technology at our project sites.” – David Holmes, Technical Manager, Ecologia Environmental
  • “At an EU military site the UTCHEM model was able to simulate the Pilot SEAR and that injected fluids were contained within the pilot application area. Further, the simulations estimated an approximate 1000 % increase in jet-fuel oil mass recovery with the application of the Ivey-sol® surfactant technology, compared to water injections without Ivey-sol®. The model also showed that the main process for mass removal during SEAR was production of a micro-emulsion.” – Soren Rygaard Lenschow, Project Manager, NIRAS
  • “After excavation and bio-piling of the soil, the surfactant enhanced bioremediation (SEB®) treatment was applied and the bio-pile was covered. Daily aeration was done during the treatment period. After only 12 weeks, samples were taken from the bio-pile showing that the remediation of the fuel-oil and PAH contamination was completed to the BC Environmental Standards and safe for reuse on-site.” – Tony Robson, Director of Mining & Equipment, Quinsam Coal
  • “We have been using the Ivey-sol® surfactant product developed by Ivey International Inc. since 2006. Our applications have mainly centered on commercial, industrial, oil and gas cleaning and decontamination services. Our general opinion of the product has been positive, as has the technical support we have received from IVEY, making it a reliable resource to meeting our upstream client requirements. I would recommend this product for petroleum storage decontamination applications.” – Lee F. Hunter, CEO, Envirotech International
  • “The project we are now working on is in tight clay soil, 6 meters deep, 35 meters by 20 meters in area. The projected clean-up will be 9 to 12 months. This is very fast compared to any other in-situ process that we are aware of. The only thing faster is digging up the site and hauling away the soil. This process is very cost effective and will save between $40,000 to $60,000 compared to the closest available technology that we are aware of.” – Terry Timothy, Manager of Environmental Services, Environmental Services
  • “We used a combination of Ivey-sol® technology and soil excavation. It certainly saved us the headache of having to do more by way of foundation excavation. The result was the important thing. Ivey-sol® was a good add-on to the original excavation and we got the results we wanted.” – Mike Roy, Senior Claims Adjuster, Plant Hope
  • “The name of the game is satisfactory results and closing the file as quickly as possible. Ivey-sol® technology is a big help when excavation isn’t an attractive option.” – Bill McCann, Senior Claims Adjuster, Halifax Insurance
