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.
Wastewater technologies that have been standardized over the last couple of decades have significant shortcomings toward meeting new stringent environmental standards. While various new configurations have been developed for influent contaminate separation, most are costly, require high maintenance, have limited capabilities, and are 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) that create higher concentrations of solids that are easier to remove.
Selective material types, or coatings within the ECoS system, allow chemical catalytic reactions to occur which interact with contamination to provide unique abilities in utilizing half redox ion reactions, (patent pending).
For example, oil-wastewater or “produced water” is composed of suspended oil droplets that are interspersed among 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:
EWS / ECoS flexibility allows it to be used in various wastewater treatment applications, and with its patented flow through process, subjects the waste stream to a series of individual techniques deemed necessary toward meeting today’s new stringent standards for industrial wastewater treatment, recycling, or discharge.
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 equals 1 barrel.)
In Kern County, 11-15 barrels of water are 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-injecting wastewater back into the ground, or evaporating it in stagnant ponds. However, after 5 years of extreme drought, California passed new legislation known as Proposition 1, which requires produced water to be treated to a grade suitable 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 demonstrated to VWM, ECT’s abilities to treat petroleum produced water for reuse as an irrigation grade water 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 around 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 being shut down with severe fines. As a result, ECT, Inc. negotiated an agreement with VWM for a field pilot to demonstrate in real terms, the efficacy of ECOPOD, powered by OriginClear, that met the new, far more stringent 2017 standards.
Prop 1’s requirement for produced water was to be repurposed (treated) for other reuse applications that included:
ECT, Inc. capitalized in numerous ways from this pilot, demonstrating that the efficacy of the ECOPOD, powered by OriginClear, a method that did not rely on traditional “additive” chemicals to affect chemical changes, proved positive results. From there the pilot expanded to other energy producers in the area, who had until July 2017 to update their current wastewater practices, to comply with new state regulations or be shut down with fines from both the State and County authorities.
Today these results are leading the S&P in TEXAS, with results that pivot American O&G futures.
Within the petroleum industry, much like in Kern County, a barrel of petroleum is accompanied with 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, ranges between 3 and 7 barrels of water (unlike Kern County’s 11-15 barrels)..
