A few days ago, our industrial grade demo system moved from Colorado to a site provided by our partner STW Resources, in Midland, Texas.
You could say this is "The Show".
This disposal site processes frack and produced water from wells all around.
It's a great way to test all kinds of waste types.
Here you can see the sequence...
In Lee Portillo's words:
|Initially the testing started as start-up wet-test of the system and a leak check.
Because performance looked so good we continued to run in order to document the performance.
In total we ran for approximately two hours at 1000 barrels per day (bpd) after starting up at 500 bpd in the morning.
In short, Lee and fellow team-member Jon Peraza just set it up. And got the numbers we wanted, right off the bat.
OK, so here's the graph worth a thousand pictures...
The 99.8% reduction you see was achieved the FIRST DAY the team set up the system onsite!
What about the remaining 0.2%?
99.8% is plenty for many uses.
But at other times, the water has to be absolutely clear.
Well, we intend to demonstrate that capability too. More equipment is on the way to do just that.
Customer demonstrations have already started. To schedule your own, please click on this link:
Black or Blue Gold?
Normally, the black material you see in the photo would just be re-injected into the earth, along with tons of water.
CLEAN-FRAC allows operators to actually recover more petroleum from waste water.
But the real benefit is the recovered water. Which is really Blue Gold.
And THAT market is worth half a trillion dollars, and growing.
Meanwhile, in San Diego...
A TV crew is showing up today at the Algal Biomass Summit, in San Diego, to record Nicholas Eckelberry, speaking on Harvesting Algae as a Nutrient-Rich Feed Alternative.
You can see his presentation at this link (PDF).
We'll have a booth and we'll be demonstrating our latest generation OriginOil Algae Harvester™.
If you order now, you may qualify for a $20,000 discount on this harvester. Just click for more information!
In the meantime, have a productive rest of your week...

* What is turbidity?
It's the cloudiness or haziness of a fluid caused by large numbers of individual particles that are generally invisible to the naked eye, similar to smoke in air. The measurement of turbidity is a key test of water quality. Here it's measured in FNU (Formazin Nephelometric Units). Formazin is a type of standardized turbidity, and "Nephelo-" means "cloud" in Greek. (Wikipedia)
