Advanced Oxidation Process wastewater treatment open for licensing


ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for license Advanced Oxidation Process – a water treatment technology from Ecosphere Technologies that is currently being used by Fortune 500 customers to reduce costs, increase treatment efficiencies and eliminate liquid chemicals from wastewater treatment operations in the United States.

The patented Ecosphere Ozonix technology combines ozone, hydrodynamic cavitation, acoustic cavitation and electro-chemical oxidation into one broad-spectrum water treatment technology to oxidize and destroy organic matter, bacteria, biofilms, heavy metals, hydrocarbons and sulfides that are typically found in industrial wastewaters. Ozonix eliminates the need for conventional liquid chemical biocides and scale-inhibitors that are typically required to control bacteria growth and scale deposition in a wide variety of wastewater treatment and disinfection applications.

Since 2008, Ecosphere’s patented OZONIX® technology has enabled oil and gas customers to treat, recycle and reuse over 5 billion gallons of water for approximately 1,200 oil and natural gas wells in the United States, protecting $5+ billion worth of well assets, eliminating millions of gallons of chemical biocides and generating over $70 million in revenue. The Company has also successfully deployed approximately 50 OZONIX® machines to a wide variety of major hydraulic fracturing shale plays around the United States and most recently Canada.

Key Characteristics & Benefits

  • Chemical-Free: With Ozonix® there is no need for chemical biocides. Bacteria tests and dynamic tube blocking tests have established that water processed through Ozonix® shows complete destruction of bacteria cell walls and scale-inhibition effects.
  • High-Volume: A single Ozonix® system can process up to 3,300 gallons per minute – treating water to a level that is suitable for re-use.
  • Self-Contained: Ozonix® products are mobile, self-contained and fully transportable – they go wherever you need them, require minimal mobilization time and are self-sustaining.
  • Highly-Effective: Ecosphere’s patented Ozonix® technology produces highly reactive bacteria killing hydroxyl radicals. Hydroxyl radicals are important to water disinfection because they have a high oxidation potential of 2.80V, which is much higher than the most common disinfectants, Ozone (2.07 V) and Chlorine (1.36 V).
  • Industry Proven: Ozonix® is the only patented Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) proven to provide high-volume, chemical-free water treatment and recycling services at the frac site for oil & gas operators.
  • Environmentally Responsible: Ozonix® is the most energy efficient and environmentally sustainable solution for high-volume, chemical-free water management.
