ECT ECOPOD TECHNOLOGY and its SCIENCE PRINCIPALS


A number of promising technologies based on electrochemistry have been developed for industrial wastewater cleanup and recycling. Principal amongst these new technologies is Environmentally Conscious Technologies, EWS / ECoS system.  


Waste water technologies standardized over the last couple of decades now have significant shortcomings towards meeting new stringent environmental standards, and while various new configurations have been developed for influent contaminate separation, most are costly, require high maintenance, have limited capabilities or there not transportable to remote site locations. 


Introducing EWS / ECoS:


Electro-Coagulation System is an electrochemistry method used to coagulate wastewater contaminates for ease of separation and collection. Wastewater when exposed to a controlled electrical field allows microscopic solids to attach, (like magnetism) creating higher concentrations of solids in which are easier to remove.  


Selective material types or coatings within the ECoS system allow chemical catalytic reactions to occur in which interact with contamination to provide several unique abilities in utilizing half redox ion reactions, (patent pending).  


For example, oil-wastewater or “produced water” is composed of suspended oil droplets interspersed amongst solid solutes and dissolved compounds all of which have different molecular weights, chemistries and electrical charges. These electrical charges measured as ‘zeta potentials, tend to keep oil droplets, solid particles and dissolved compounds from interacting chemically. Therefore, under suitable conditions of controlled and carefully-applied DC wattage, (patent pending) several unique physic-reactions occur: 


  1. Catalytic Coalescing: A neutralized charge surrounds oil droplets allowing them to quickly coalesce and coagulate out of an emulsion. This applies to both heavy and aromatic-hydrocarbons with any specific results dependent upon compound molecular weights or concentration. 
  2. Chemical Oxidation: The creations of free hydroxyl radicals, (OH-) in the waste stream rapidly and aggressively combine oil droplets, particulate solutes and dissolved compounds. 
  3. Complex Organic Breakdown: EWS / ECoS has the potential to breakdown complex organic molecules including high molecular weight compounds that may be resistant to other forms of treatment, such as pesticides, herbicides, dyes and wet-process chemicals.
  4. Stable Metallic Oxides: EWS / ECoS works on many dissolved metals by forming stable metallic oxides which rapidly precipitate from the waste stream as particles, allowing higher levels of removal.
  5. BOD, COD, and TSS: EWS / ECoS directly reduces BOD, COD, TOC and TSS in most waste streams. 
  6. Radical Biological Inactivation: EWS / ECoS free hydroxyl radicals, (OH-) rapidly and aggressively combine to destroy bacteria, viruses, cysts, macrophages and other organic biological contaminants, similar to the effect of using ozone, but at a level of magnitude greater. EWS / ECoS as a pre-treatment process prior to reverse-osmosis (RO) prevents health issues due to biological hosting.  

  

EWS / ECoS flexibility allows it to be used in many waste water treatment applications and with its patented flow through process, subjects the waste stream to a series of individual techniques deemed necessary towards meeting today’s new stringent standards for industrial waste water treatment, recycling or discharge.

CALIFORNIA BUILDS NEW S&P GLOBALLY

BACKGROUND

The majority of oil production in California occurs in Kern County, where approximately 576 energy producers generate approximately 223.92 million barrels annually, which equates to a daily petroleum product production of 613 thousand barrels (42 gallons is equal to 1 barrel.)


In Kern County, 11-15 barrels of water are also displaced when each barrel of oil is extracted from the ground. This type of oily wastewater is commonly referred to as produced water. Typical disposal practices within the oil industry have been re-injection back into the ground, or evaporation in stagnant ponds. However, after 5 years of extreme drought, California recently passed new legislation known as Proposition 1, which requires produced water to be treated to a grade for alternative use.

As a result of Proposition 1’s passage, ECT Inc. was given the opportunity to perform a technology field pilot for Valley Water Management (VWM) in Kern County. (See article.)

This field pilot will demonstrate to VWM ECT’s abilities to treat petroleum produced water for reuse with the goal of achieving an irrigation water grade that can be distributed to surrounding farmers.


This particular VWM site receives produced water from five or six local energy producers, where approximately 390 barrels (16,380) are received daily. Furthermore, VWM manages another 12+ sites that collect, overall, roughly 500,000 barrels (21 million gallons) of produced water daily.


In 2016 this particular site was found to be out of compliance. Through a court order, the company was required to implement new treatment practices or face shut down with severe fines. As a result, ECT negotiated an agreement with VWM for a field pilot to demonstrate, in very real terms, the efficacy of ECOPOD powered by OriginClear toward meeting the new, far more stringent 2017 standards.

Prop 1’s requirement that produced water be repurposed (treated) for other reuse applications includes:

  • farmland irrigation
  • makeup water for cooling towers
  • recycled water for industrial applications


ECT hopes to capitalize in many ways from this pilot, as it demonstrates the efficacy of the ECOPOD powered by OriginClear method, which does not rely on traditional “additive” chemicals to affect chemical changes, to other local energy producers, who have until July 2017 to update their current wastewater practices in order to comply with new state regulations.


If energy producers fail to comply and if continue to operate while out of compliance, they face shut down with severe fines from both the State and County authorities.

Additional Information

Within the petroleum industry and much like in Kern County, a barrel of petroleum is also accompanied by barrels of produced water. However, in other areas depending on geographic location the amount of water extracted during the petroleum process may vary. According to the Texas Railroad Commission (TRC), regulators for petroleum production in Texas, the average amount of produced water for every barrel of petroleum or cubic meter of natural gas range between 3 and 7 barrels of water (unlike Kern County’s 11-15 barrels)..
