Adds Ability to Remediate Hydrocarbons from Water
LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / February 17, 2021 / Vivakor, Inc. (OTC PINK:VIVK), a socially responsible operator, acquirer and developer of clean energy technologies and environmental solutions, primarily focused on soil remediation, is pleased to announce that it has purchased three initial water remediation systems from its strategic partner solvAQUA.
The two companies entered into a strategic agreement in April 2020, whereby Vivakor agreed to purchase equipment from solvAQUA Inc., a Canada-based clean water technology company. The combination of solvAQUA's water treatment platform with Vivakor's soil remediation system enables Vivakor to clean and remediate hydrocarbons from both soil and water. The solvAQUA unit will be integrated with Vivakor's Remediation Processing Center to remove hydrocarbons from both the water and soil where needed, such as cleaning produced water from oil production, but can also be used as a stand-alone system for remediating contaminated water such as produced water.
The solvAQUA Wastewater Management System (WMS) is a compact solution that continually processes and separates large volumes of wastewater (4,000+ m3/day for each WMS) with an ability to scale to remove any volume of oil, grease and suspended solids from wastewater, in most cases removing 99.99% of waste. The processed water stream can in some cases be discharged or reused without further treatment.
"The addition of the solvAQUA water remediation technology makes it possible for Vivakor to remediate both dry and wet contamination sites with as close to a "zero waste" solution as possible," said Vivakor Chief Exective Officer, Matt Nicosia. "We will utilize an on-site systematic approach that reduces space requirements, minimizes waste removal to landfills, and recovers the waste hydrocarbons, creating additional revenue streams."
solvAQUA Chief Executive Officer, Chris Tesarski, stated, "This is just the beginning of what our companies can accomplish together. Around the globe, environmental tragedies have damaged soil and water and devastated communities. These two technologies enable synergistic collaboration to clean up environmental nightmares and put communities on a path toward health, safety and sustainability."
solvAQUA is a Global Water Recovery and Waste Reduction Solutions company with technology that provides clean water for re-use for many different purposes. The solutions are engineered with the environment and economics at the forefront, while at the same time considering industry demand for sustainable technology.
The solvAQUA proprietary process is an effective solution to wastewater management - whether it is water for industrial use, agriculture, and community infrastructure; or it can be for clean, fresh water for reuse.
The solvAQUA process has been tested in the United States, Canada, and Mexico; onshore and offshore where it confirmed that its nano-technology process works with oil and gas, industrial, and municipal wastewater streams.
