  • Novel filtration-adsorption method for water treatment

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    General description EN GIBTON’S ClayMix is based on proprietary patented technology of Micelle-Clay and Organo- Clay complexes mixed with Sand- Clay creating multi-layer granular media mixtures. Anionic neutral and same cationic dissolved contaminant molecules are adsorbed into the complexes and removed from .water during filtration or settling processes. ClayMix treatment systems appear as two market products: adsorption-filtration system and adsorptionsettling system.

  • Boron and Lithium Isotopic Method for Tracing Hydrocarbons and Their By-Products

    Type: 
    Product

    Background: As petroleum consumption continues to rise the world is turning to unconventional oil sources such as kerogen shale and bituminous sands in order to keep up with global demand. Satellite imagery gravity meters and magnetometers are typically used to pinpoint ideal locations for drilling over conventional oil or gas reserves. However differentiating unconventional oil sources from other layers of rock is difficult due to their similar densities so instead organic biomarkers are used to trace hydrocarbons (and their by-products) back to their source rock.

  • Chlorine Resistant Permeable Impermeable Nanocomposite (PINC) membranes for osmotic separations

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Background: Water is crucial for human survival. Water is also a pivotal aspect of the global economy for its uses in agricultural irrigation industrial processes electricity production and as drinking water. Continuous population growth limits the supply of freshwater. Because water conservation alone cannot resolve the problems of the shrinking water supply production of fresh water from alternative sources such as reclaimed wastewater brackish groundwater and ocean water is imperative. Currently osmotic processes are able to produce high quality water from these sources.
