Montmorillonite,

a member of the smectite family is a 2:1 clay, meaning that it has 2 tetrahedral sheets sandwiching a central octahedral sheet.  The particles are plate-shaped and extremely small with an average diameter of approximately 1 micrometer.  Montmorillonite’s colloidal nature lends it well to the transport of nutrients and enhanced bioavailability of nutrients.

1955 –1984 Variously past and present Chairman or President of various corporations in

        USA, Puerto Rico, Japan, England, including Enzymes, Inc., Worne

        Biochemicals, Inc., Worne Biotechnology, Inc., and WasteEnergy Corp.

His work, today, is carried on by the Epicore New Jersey research and development team, which Dr. Worne hand-picked and trained.  Epicore acquired his technology in the early 1990's and retained the "Doc" as Chief Scientist and board member up until his death.

Epicore's microbiology expertise was founded on the science and technology of the late Dr. Howard E. Worne. His contributions to World biological technology are legendary and his reputation is world renown.  Epicore BioNetworks is proud of its past association with Dr. Worne and is fortunate to hold exclusive rights to his environmental microbial technology.
