IX Power is working to develop and bring to market a number of ground-breaking technologies that originated from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in New Mexico. An example of one of the technologies is the IX Power OrganiClear™ system that removes dangerous organic hydrocarbons from water produced by oil & gas, mining, and industrial processes without creating a hydrocarbon waste stream.
The founders of IX Power, comprised of John R. (Grizz) Deal, Randall Wilson, L. Robert Libutti, Otis “Pete” Peterson, and Deborah Deal-Blackwell, are renowned for their commercialization of the Hyperion Power SMR (small, modular nuclear power reactor) from LANL that is safe and small enough to be transported on the back of a truck. Today, under their new company IX Power, their interests have been expanded to include every type of clean energy technology — wind, solar, bio fuels, geothermal, and nuclear. The company and its non-profit foundation are based in Los Alamos, New Mexico and have offices in Denver, Colorado; Washington, D.C.; and London, England.
