EcoVAP Evaporative Matrix™ technology harnesses radiant solar energy for off-grid water evaporation and recovery.
This wholly new approach to water challenges enables operations of all sizes to dramatically reduce their carbon footprint while stewarding our planet's most critical natural resource--fresh water.
EcoVAP's biomimicry-based innovations facilitate multiple industrial and municipal applications, evaporating, purifying and capturing clean water through a simple and scalable model. Evaporative Matrix solutions mimic cloud formation by creating increased convection, rapid evaporation and high humidity within a closed system, so brackish water can be restored and fresh water freely supplied for local use, or returned to the hydrological cycle naturally. This technology eliminates energy and land-intensive approaches to water management along with the costs and environmental risks of these conventional methods.
The result is ethically and economically sound clean water solutions available anywhere around the globe.
“... daily water meter data indicate that the Evaporation Tower is 59 times more efficient in evaporating water..."
In 2017 EcoVAP challenged one of the most respected engineering firms in the world, Golder Associates, to evaluate our technology’s performance under their most rigorous testing standards. Golder subjected an EcoVAP oil-field wastewater collection site near Myton, Utah to months of scrutiny and meticulous evaluation using a suite of sensors and 24 hour video surveillance. The results at the end of the testing period were astounding. Golder showed that the EcoVAP solution evaporated wastewater 5900% faster than the conventional control solution.
In this 2017 assessment Golder tested EcoVAP’s Generation 1 evaporation technology, which has undergone significant redesign and optimization. Based upon EcoVAP’s internal testing since that time, we are confident that during Golder’s next certification our Generation 3 solution will be shown to be almost twice as effective as Generation 1 at evaporating wastewater.
EcoVAP commissioned the respected Natural Resources and Environmental Management Department at Ball State University to conduct a formal Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of our Evaporative Matrix solution. After careful review, the department concluded that not only was the EcoVAP solution found to be “an environmentally sound technology for accelerated removal of oil and gas wastewater across a significantly reduced land area” but the study concluded further that EcoVAP’s proprietary approach completely eliminated or dramatically reduced many of the adverse environmental impacts and risks posed by the most popular disposal methods.REQUEST A COPY
