During the show it was announced that British Petroleum (BP) notified EVTN that it is reviewing EVTN's Voraxial® Separator technology for possible application to its oil spill response program.
John A. Di Bella
provided examples of the huge volumes of oil-contaminated sea water that could be processed by EVTN's patented Voraxial® Separator, as compared to the average oil recovery reported for the entire deployed Gulf fleet since the beginning of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. A single Voraxial® 4000 Separator, EVTN's medium size model, can separate over 700,000 gallons of oil/water mixture per day. EVTN's largest model, the Voraxial® 8000 Separator can separate over 5 million gallons of oil/water mixture per day. According to Deepwater Horizon's website, as of
June 8, 2010
a total of approximately 16 million gallons of oil/water mixture has been collected since the spill began in April.
"The Voraxial® Separator's unique characteristics allow the technology to be used in various industries for many different applications, including oil spill recovery. The Voraxial Separator is ideal for oil spill recovery and we are pursuing a number of opportunities to deploy our units to the Gulf," stated
John A. Di Bella
, COO of EVTN. "The Voraxial offers one of the best solutions to mitigate this crisis as we can significantly increase the amount of oil/water mixture processed and quickly separate the oil from the captured mixture."
Enviro Voraxial Technology, Inc. (OTCBB "EVTN") is a
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
-based CleanTech company that developed and manufactures the Voraxial®, arguably the world's most efficient technology for high volume, bulk separation of fluids such as oil and water.
The Voraxial® Separator is a scalable cost-effective, mechanical separator that separates contaminants at high volumes with less space, energy and weight than conventional equipment. The Voraxial® Separator benefits include: high volume/small footprint, no pressure drop requirement, 2-way or 3 way separation, handles fluctuations in flow rate and oil concentration without any adjustments, high "g" force and less maintenance than conventional equipment. These benefits result in significant acquisition and operating cost savings to the customer.
