Traditional extraction and processing of hydrocarbons relies heavily on the use of threatened water resources and toxic chemicals. Gaia generated, liquid delivered, nanobubbles serve as chemical free resources for enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of oil and gas recovery, oil/water separation, iron and sulfide oxidation, soil remediation and process water reclamation. The implementation of Gaia nanobubble technology significantly reduces chemical use, rendering process water reusable.
The leaching processes employed in the recovery of minerals from mined ore leave behind chemically toxic wastewater in huge quantities. Gaia generated nanobubbles can be used to effectively and efficiently adjust wastewater pH and reduce the need for chemical coagulants and flocculants, minimizing the environmental impacts of mining operations on the communities in which they reside.
Gaia UFB nanobubble generators are readily integrated into existing extraction and processing systems. The transition to nanobubble technology is cost effective and minimally disruptive.
