From Conventional to Modern Technology

Our new ceramic membrane combines innovative design features and unique materials of construction to provide the maximum organic rejection and ions (heavy metal) rejection in conjuction with our proprietary chemical intervention (Chemical Injection) in the feed water that provides superb capabilities to separate organics in comparison to the conventional ceramic membrane process.  We will definitely change the world, and our ceramic membranes and proprietary chemical intervention (Chemical Injection) in the feed water will change the way we treat produced water today.

The old conventional process are large systems and they can only treat produced water to a certain extent. You must use several equipment to achieve an oil water separation.

With our process and the use of our tubular organophobic ceramic membranes the process is done in on single step, small footprint and most important of all, the quality of the separation is absolute.

What is Produced Water?

Produced water is a by-product of the oil and gas drilling process. Produced water characteristics and physical properties vary considerably depending on the geographic location of the field, the geological formations with which the produced water has been in contact and the type of hydrocarbon product being extracted. Produced water properties and volume from one location, can even vary over time.


While oil and grease components of produced water receive the most attention in both onshore and offshore operations, produced water contains various toxic organic and inorganic compounds. Some of these are naturally occurring in the produced water while others are related to chemicals that have been added for ‘cleaning’ purposes. As the various components need to be treated, whether due to discharge laws, or because of the damage they cause to drilling equipment and oil-well quality, we will briefly review some of them in order to provide a more complete picture of the challenges of treating produced water.


  • Dispersed oil consists of small oil droplets suspended in the aqueous phase.
  • Dissolved or soluble organic components include hydrocarbons that occur naturally in produced water such as organic acids, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), phenols, and volatiles.
  • Treatment chemicals include biocides, reverse emulsion breakers, and corrosion inhibitors.
  • Produced solids include precipitated solids, sand and silt, carbonates, clays, proppant, corrosion products, and other suspended solids derived from the producing formation and from wellbore operations.
  • Scales can form when ions in supersaturated produced water react to form precipitates when pressures and temperatures are decreased during production. Common scales include calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, barium sulfate, strontium sulfate, and iron sulfate.
  • Metals typically found in produced waters include zinc, lead, manganese, iron, and barium.


Clearly, all of these substances are highly problematic as toxins affecting the environment or because they hamper efficient drilling and production. As such, produced water treatment is no longer an option, but an integral part of any oil-drilling operation.
