- Abandoned Mine Acid Water
TurboCoag™ system is well suited for cleaning contaminated acid mine water that drains into streams from abandoned mining sites . The small footprint of the system makes it ideal for remote locations. Similarly, the reduced maintenance requirements of TurboCoag™, as compared to traditional EC systems, make it the optimal solution for these locations.
- Active Mining Water
Active mine sites use large amounts of water in the mining process. TurboCoag™ is well suited to clean active mine water on site. The ability to process high volumes of water with minimal downtime make it the ideal solution.
- Arsenic Removal
Recently the EPA reduced the allowable levels of arsenic allowed in drinking water from 50 ppB to 10 ppB. Approximately 300,000 U.S. wells have higher than allowable arsenic levels, some of which supply entire cities. TurboCoag™ was independently tested to remove arsenic at 880 ppB to levels that were undetectable at 0.5 ppB. The scalability of the technology makes it suitable to this type of market.
- Hydraulic Fracturing Flow-Back Water
During the fracturing process millions of gallons of water are used and much of this water returns to the surface unsuitable for re-use or release. Currently deep disposal wells are used to eliminate the contaminated water. TurboCoag™ would reduce the amount of sludge produced from treating the water chemically, reduce the amount of water purchased allowing for re-use and reduce trucking expenses.
- Produced Oil Water
Oil and Gas extraction produce large amounts of water that is unfit for release back into the environment. The treatment of this water is a determining factor in the profitability of oil and gas companies. TurboCoag™ has the capability to effectively clean produced water.
- Disaster Relief
During a disaster critical infrastructure is destroyed leaving people without the basic necessities. The most fundamental is access to safe drinking water. TurboCoag™ has the capability to effectively clean contaminated water at site rather than transporting water.
- Industrial Laundry Wastewater
Industrial laundries in the US use between 50,000 to 1,000,000 gallons of water per day. They recognize water and wastewater disposal as major cost factors. In addition, many laundries are required to recycle wash water because the discharge permits are much lower than the consumption.
- Animal Waste
With the increase in the number of animals on farms, agricultural waste streams have become larger. Historically, farming has operated under a no discharge concept.
Municipalities do not accept waste from farms, and farms are not allowed to discharge to surface waters. TurboCoag™ is capable of effectively performing solid liquid separation and nutrient removal from animal waste.
- Municipal Side Stream Water
These side streams have relatively small volumes of highly polluted water that are well suited for the TurboCoag™ system.
TurboCoag™ Advanced Electrocoagulation Technology is a cutting edge, on-site water reuse system capable of removing pharmaceuticals from water. The system can be used to treat water for discharge purposes or to further polish side-stream water.
