February Chementator briefs

  Water reclamation Last month, a new water-reclamation process for the oil-and-gas industry was launched by HBC Systems, a newly created joint venture between Hydration Technology Innovations (HTI; Scottsdate, Ariz.; www.htiwater.com) and Bear Creek Services, LLC (Albany, Ore.; www.bearcreekservices.com). The so-called Bear Creek Green Machine incorporates HTIs proprietary forward-osmosis-membrane technology, which separates water from virtually all contaminants as it migrates through the membrane by osmosis. The concentration difference across the membrane (needed for osmosis) is supplied by concentrated brine, which is already typically available at well sites. The mobile unit processes wastewater at rates of more than 100 gal/min. In field tests, the Green Machine reclaimed almost 125,000 gal of reserve pit waste (using less than 20 gal of diesel fuel), which would have required 20 truckloads to transport the waste to distant disposal wells for underground injection, says HTI. A new mineral Minerologists from the Institute of Applied Geosciences, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT; Germany; www.kti.edu) have discovered a new mineral in Northwest Iran that may find applications in solar cells. Approved by the International…
