TurboCoag® has proven its effectiveness treating leachate water from several landfills, obtaining historical positive results in the industry! Landfill leachate is created when waste placed in a landfill is exposed to natural precipitation, surface run-off, infiltration or intrusion of groundwater which trickles through the mixed materials, dissolving and adsorbing chemicals as it percolates through the landfill. Leachate production is increased by the humidity rate of the waste on site and the chemical and physical disposal reactions of wastes within the cell. The diverse components of the leachate are due to the makeup of the waste within the landfill.
Avivid Water Technology (AWT) has demonstrated its electrocoagulation (EC) technology successfully treats many different mining waters in the US. AWT’s EC, TurboCoag® provides a cost competitive alternative to current mining industry practices through more effective cleaning and reduced sludge waste production.
Avivid's TurboCoag® reduced arsenic from 880 PPB to 0.5 PPB as reported by an independent lab test. The scalability of the technology makes it ideal for the arsenic removal market. The EPA recently reduced the allowable arsenic levels in drinking water from 50 PPB to 10 PPB. Today, approximately 300,000 wells have higher than allowable arsenic levels and some supply entire cities! * PPB = parts per billion
When properly treated, produced oil water can be reused to replace freshwater in the fracking of oil wells. Avivid's process provides businesses effective, environmentally sustainable alternatives to current practices. Avivid's tests have shown that TurboCoag® can successfully treat these oil waters at a competitive price.
TurboCoag® reduces the amount of sludge produced from treating produced water chemically, allows for water reuse which decreases the expense of freshwater purchases for fracking, and reduces trucking expenses. Today, millions of gallons of water are used during the fracking process and most of it returns to the surface unsuitable for reuse or release. Deep disposal wells are currently used to dispose of produced water, but this method has been challenged due to its demonstrated potential for inducing earthquakes and contaminating groundwater.
