WORCESTER, Mass., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ThermoEnergy Corp. (OTCBB: TMEN), a diversified technologies company engaged in the development and sales of wastewater recovery technologies, has announced the startup of its first commercial scale hydrofracking water production unit at an oil field in the Southwestern region of the U.S.  The ThermoEnergy FracGen™ unit will remove brine and other impurities from brackish water located deep in local aquifers and produce water suitable to be used in hydraulic fracturing for recovery of oil and gas from shale formations.

"Many Hydrofracking sites are located in places where fresh water is scarce and must be trucked in at considerable expense," said Cary Bullock, ThermoEnergy Chairman and CEO. "FracGen™ offers significant improvements in hydrofracking sustainability and cost efficiency."

ThermoEnergy recently announced the successful pilot testing of its Turbofrac™ system for cost-effective treatment and recycling of produced water from hydrofracked wells. The Turbofrac system builds on the company's patented CAST® (Controlled Atmospheric Separation technology) for wastewater recovery.  Together, FracGen™ and Turbofrac™ offer the Oil & Gas industry a complete water lifecycle management solution for more cost-effective and sustainable hydrofracking operations.

"The abundant and affordable energy provided by hydraulic fracturing techniques will be a key driver of economic recovery, not only in the U.S. but around the globe," said Bullock. "Hydrofracking requires both the consumption and disposal of huge amounts of water. Water is an even more precious commodity than energy. Sustainable water management solutions like FracGen™ and Turbofrac™ are absolutely critical to the sustainability of the energy industry and our economic future."
