Innoveox Produces Energy While Turning Waste Water Into Fresh Water

Ideal for Oil and Gas, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industries, Supercritical Water Oxidation Guarantees Clean Treatment of Waste

PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2013) - Innoveox, dedicated to destroying and reducing waste, has just launched an additional patent Supercritical Water Oxidation which guarantees clean organic waste with 99.9% effectiveness. The new system produces energy and electricity while cleaning water quickly and effectively.

Recognized by the Canadian government as a solution which has enormous potential for use in the oil sands, Innoveox is already in contact with SUNCOR-ULTRAMAR.

The demand for both water and energy is at an all-time high, and sustainable development options are increasingly sought after. New solutions to water treatment and energy production are gaining momentum in both the public and private sectors.

Revolutionary technology
The Supercritical Water Oxidation created by Innoveox treats all forms of organic waste. It is especially effective with hazardous industrial waste such as oils, solvents, and pesticides, and also complex, corrosive and resistant waste.

Supercritical Water Oxidation provides a fast and straightforward way to transform waste water into usable water, producing energy or electricity in the process. A safe, non-toxic reaction occurs in under one minute, producing clean water that can be directly discharged into the environment. Metals are also separated for reuse.

The technology pressurizes ( > 250 bars) and superheats ( < 400°C) the elements in question, and injecting oxygen, which is immediately soluble.

Inspiring vision
Jean-Christophe Lepine, President of Innoveox, shares, "Our mission is to reduce every kind of waste, and Supercritical Water Oxidation is an important step in that direction. From the fast purification time to the wide variety of applications, we know this new process will have a positive impact on the environment, as well as on how companies do business as a whole."

Innoveox holds the exclusive worldwide license for the CNRS patent on of liquid waste, providing the company with a competitive edge. The technology recently won a prestigious CHEMSTART'UP award in France. References include technology leader AIR LIQUIDE and oil and gas group Total E&P.

About Innoveox
Created in 2008, Innoveox is a young, dynamic company and benefits from an exclusive CNRS patent. This revolutionary technology is non-pollutant (no residue, no toxic fumes) and recycles water while recuperating the rare metals produced through this process.
