Ecosphere’s Ozonix Deployed to Gulf, but not for Oil

July 13, 2010

Ecosphere Technologies’ agreement with Mid-Gulf Recovery Services has developed into a contract announced July 8th.

The contract stipulates two Ozonix mobile water treatment units will be deployed on barges carrying housing quarters, to purify grey and black water generated by the personnel deployed to clean portions of the gulf. One unit has been deployed, and the second is slated to deploy by July 22.

This is unexpected news indeed, and while I’m glad the personnel on the two barges won’t contribute to the environmental disaster via untreated grey or black water, I had hoped advanced technology would be deployed to directly address the oil spill itself.

However, Ecosphere may have just stumbled on a new opportunity: if Ozonix can be used to purify grey and blackwater for reuse, Ozonix could potentially be deployed in other humanitarian and military missions, remote oil and mining camps, and other personnel-heavy, water-starved situations. The UN could deploy Ozonix in Haiti to save money trucking water to IDP camps.

We’ll keep watching Ecosphere to see how the contract with Mid-Gulf progresses.

    Maybe they could help out it the purification of municipal waters as well, for instance, Seattle, Washington could use this technology for cleaning waste from the their water systems.

    Galen,

    Nice article, HBO documentary” Gaslannd”, about companies frac wells with chemicals, by John Fox, this would be nice for him to see, sent him an email about Ecosphere but no reply. Sometimes I wonder if people like to scream about problems, but don’t show solutions that actually help, as in the gulf and frac wells, guess it is not as exciting.
    Thanx for the exposure, also need to send this to “The Street Sweeper” Melissa Davis who thinks these guys are frauds.
