During the show it was announced that British Petroleum (BP) notified EVTN that it is reviewing EVTN's Voraxial® Separator technology for possible application to its oil spill response program.
Mr. John A. Di Bella provided examples of the huge volumes of oil-contaminated sea water that could be processed by EVTN's patented Voraxial® Separator, as compared to the average oil recovery reported for the entire deployed Gulf fleet since the beginning of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. A single Voraxial® 4000 Separator, EVTN's medium size model, can separate over 700,000 gallons of oil/water mixture per day. EVTN's largest model, the Voraxial® 8000 Separator can separate over 5 million gallons of oil/water mixture per day. According to Deepwater Horizon's website, as of June 8, 2010 a total of approximately 16 million gallons of oil/water mixture has been collected since the spill began in April.
"The Voraxial® Separator's unique characteristics allow the technology to be used in various industries for many different applications, including oil spill recovery. The Voraxial Separator is ideal for oil spill recovery and we are pursuing a number of opportunities to deploy our units to the Gulf," stated John A. Di Bella, COO of EVTN. "The Voraxial offers one of the best solutions to mitigate this crisis as we can significantly increase the amount of oil/water mixture processed and quickly separate the oil from the captured mixture."
