Clean Energy from Dirty Water: Our Game-Changing Solution.
Magnetic separation system
Our key innovation is our magnetic separation system that uses magnetic sand to bind algae and other contaminants in the water. The resulting sand-algae conjugates are then pulled out of the water using magnets. This process combines traditional water treatment chemistry used in drinking water and wastewater purification with the power of magnets to allows us to rapidly separate problem contaminants.
A cost-effective, mobile water treatment solution
Traditional water treatment systems require massive footprints and massive checks, but our proprietary, magnetic separation technology allows us to pack the power of a water treatment plant into a trailerable, cost-effective mobile system. This system can be rapidly deployed when and where it is needed to clean up transient pollutants like algae.
Cost-effective hydrothermal liquefaction technology
Collected algae can be converted to crude oil. We expose the algae to high temperature and pressure in a process known as hydrothermal liquefaction. This process is largely similar to how fossil fuels were formed underground. In order to make this process commercially viable, we have designed and built a new system that is much simpler and much less expensive than the systems other companies have developed.
