DENVER, COLORADO, 26 November 2013 –IX Power of Denver, CO announced today the release of a modification of their OrganiClear produced water treatment machine that captures and eliminates Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from oil, gas, and produced water storage tanks.
The product, “OrganiClear VBR,™” exceeds the newly recommended emission standards proposed by Governor John Hickenlooper, and supported by three leading energy companies and the Environmental Defense Fund (http://www.edf.org/blog/2013/11/25/colo-sets-national-precedent-air-quality-and-climate).
OrganiClear VBR works in conjunction with oil, gas, and produced water storage systems to convert VOCs to water and a small amount of CO2, eliminating the atmospheric release of these harmful gases. “This product is a natural extension of OrganiClear, and utilizes its proven ability to capture and convert airborne organics from filter recharge in a produced water treatment system so that it can now be used in capturing and converting airborne organics in storage systems,” said IX Power CEO John R. (Grizz) Deal.
“OrganiClear was specifically designed to solve the issues surrounding the release of organic hydrocarbons in produced water. We have simply modified the OrganiClear design to provide a robust Vapor Bioreactor (VBR) to meet and exceed these proposed new emission standards.” OrganiClear VBR is built to customer specifications but all IX Power VBRs provide for a wide range of operating conditions, chemistries, and environmental conditions at an affordable price point.
IX Power Clean Water (IX PCW) is a spin out from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL, www.lanl.gov) and has acquired the patent rights to OrganiClear™ from the Laboratory and begun commercialization of the most effective proven technology to filter and destroy organic hydrocarbons and other contaminants in produced water without creating an additional waste stream.
The OrganiClear machine cleans water to the point that it can be safely used for agriculture and livestock and, with additional processes, can also be used for community water systems.
“OrganiClear will change how the world manages produced water from the oil & gas industry, mining industry, and in manufacturing,” explained Deal. “As part of an operation’s water treatment train, OrganiClear not only separates the dangerous organic hydrocarbons, it destroys them while creating no additional waste stream. While other existing processes for cleaning produced water leave piles of toxic consumables that then must also be disposed of, OrganiClear effectively “eats” the toxins leaving nothing behind for additional handling.”
IX Power Clean Water (pronounced Nine Power), is based in Denver, Colorado and is one of the IX Power Companies, a group that focuses on bringing game-changing safe power and clean water innovations to market. The companies also have offices in Washington, D.C.; London, England; and Moscow, Russia. Before starting the IX Power group of companies, Deal was the CEO of Hyperion Power Generation for four years. He co-founded Hyperion Power, the first modern SMR company to approach the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission with its SMR concept, along with the IX Power Leadership Team: Dr. Otis (Pete) Peterson, Dr. Robert Libutti, Randall Wilson, and Deborah Deal-Blackwell.
