Using very low energy input and catalysts, the technology separates many contaminants from water at the molecular level. Danzik' s method controls the dialysis process in water and avoids the production of excess heat. It causes the water to repel and stratify contaminants, allowing for efficient separation and removal. It allows the "targeting" of reagents; uses mechanical processes to reduce suspended and dissolved solids, chlorides, and other harmful contaminants; and utilizes advancements in oxidation to target heavy metals. Our goal in applying the process is to develop a "Water Product" for our customers. Not all water needs to be cleaned to potable standards for recycling and reuse. We work closely with our customers to define their water needs and conservation so that as little cost is incurred in the water treatment as is possible.
An aspect of waste water treatment is a wide variability in the types of input water. This is evident in the variety of waste water streams generated from a multitude of industrial processes. This is also seen in the oil and gas industry where water can come from flow back and produced water, oil sands extraction or enhanced recovery processes. There is currently no low cost - black box one-size-fits-all technology. A key benefit of our technology, and experience of our staff, is the ability to analyze and treat a wide variety of input water. Additionally, we are able to define the output quality of our treated water to various client specifications and to meet economic targets.
Ridgeline can effectively treat polluted water with the following results:
