EVTN Team Voraxial ® Gives Thanks To Wendy Schmidt And The X PRIZE Foundation

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Enviro Voraxial Technology, Inc. (OTCOB: EVTN) extends its gratitude to the Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X Prize Foundation for developing, organizing and administering a worldwide competition for oil spill recovery. EVTN was honored to be selected as one of 10 finalists from among 350 international contenders for the $1.4 Million Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X CHALLENGE.  The 10 finalists included a diverse group of domestic and international companies, some with decades of oil spill response experience.  

Since the Voraxial 8000 can process and separate much greater volumes of oil and water than any known mechanical separator of its size or energy consumption, Team Voraxial entered the competition fully anticipating that they had a potential winner.  The Submersible Voraxial 8000 performed flawlessly during the competition.  However, as occasionally happens during initial test conditions, an auxiliary pump used to transfer the output of the Voraxial to a holding tank was compromised and unable to deliver more than a small percentage of the Voraxial's total output.  The holding tank is where the measurement of the captured oil for the test was conducted.  This resulted in test results that did not measure the actual Voraxial performance.  Even though Team Voraxial did not ultimately win the X Prize, they came away with an even stronger conviction that the Voraxial represents the highest performance oil/water separation technology available for oil spill cleanup applications.  The visibility afforded by the X PRIZE to demonstrate the Voraxial 8000 has already resulted in increased inquiries and project reviews from both oil spill response companies and the oil exploration and production industry.

EVTN is the developer and manufacturer of the Voraxial® Separator, a high volume, compact separation device that separates contaminants from water.  The compactness, light weight and low energy requirements of the Voraxial® enables it to be installed on new vessels or retrofitted on existing vessels for oil spill response.  Additionally, similar to other auxiliary equipment on vessels such as firefighting hoses, the Voraxial's® small footprint allows it to be secured on vessels, such as tug boats and supply vessels, without interfering with the main function of the vessel.  Multiple Voraxial® 8000 models, each capable of processing 7,000,000 gallons of oily water per day, can easily be retrofitted on an average size supply vessel and quickly convert them into a high volume oil spill recovery vessel.  EVTN is in discussions to pursue this oil spill solution to protect a large region from multiple simultaneous Deepwater Horizon disasters.
