We make science and technology practical

Our Mission


Since 1993, BioSpan’s team of scientists and researchers have developed inventive solutions for the world’s toughest industries. Our FDA and EPA licensed manufacturing plant in Missouri, USA includes four research and development laboratories.

There, we concentrate on creating new products used for:

  • pavement preservation solutions
  • crude and heavy oil products
  • bio-decontamination
  • environmental recovery and resource utilization of solid waste
  • cleaners and degreasers

As the number of patents granted on our products grows, we believe that our research-based approach – from the laboratory to the manufacturing plant – makes our solutions effective and affordable. Our products are proven to work under the most demanding, real-world conditions to get the job done, making us a leader in green technologies.
