Biomass and Hydrocarbon Waste Recycling

Chemionyx® Water Treatment

NOVO logoProduced and frac flowback wastewater is treated to industrial reuse standards to be resold for a variety of uses including light brine for refracking, heavy brine to develop casing pressure and road spray for winter deicing and summer dust control.

The Chemionyx™ water treatment system includes unloading to a tank farm and pretreatment in the tank farm to remove sand, floating oil, and grease, and active treatment using pulse electrocoagulation and chemical injection and filtration to create useable water.  A Chemionyx™ chemical is added to the system to enhance chemical degradation of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbon bonds in waste molecules, producing non‐hazardous fatty acids.  Oil collected is sold or used to generate power via Gasplasma®.  Water treatment sludge is processed in the Chemionyx™ Solids Treatment System.

Chemionyx™ Solids Treatment

Chemionyx recycling of Wet Solid E&P Waste transforms these difficult-to-manage wastes into discharge-quality light brine, clean water, road spray, recovered crude oil, and a variety of solid Beneficial Use Products including road base, clean fill, and ceramic blocks.

Plasma Technologies -­ Gasplasma® and Direct Plasma

LGE LogoLocal community landfills produce substantial volumes of municipal solid waste, commercial waste, and construction and demolition debris.   These wastes contain a high percentage of organic materials, which can be further concentrated via shredding and sorting to remove concrete, metal and glass. The remaining waste, together with dried sewage sludge and the organic residue from Chemionyx™ treatment are processed by Gasplasma®’s plasma gasification technology to create a high quality synthetic gas.   This gas is then transformed into renewable methane or used in a gas engine or fuel cell to generate heat and power.
