LONGMONT - Avivid Technologies Group LLC today announced the company has received a patent for its stand-alone water purification process for the minerals extraction industry.
Avivid's process, called Turbo-Coag, builds on proven purification technology called electrocoagulation. The process has the capability to treat up to 600,000 gallons per day per system while rapidly removing up to 99 percent of heavy metals, suspended solids and biological contaminants from water, the company said.
"It's an exciting time to be a part of the clean water entrepreneur community," said Bill Stopperan, Avivid executive VP, who noted that the company is working on joint ventures with oil-and-gas service providers and several uranium mining companies.
Longmont-based Avivid Water Technology is part of Avivid Technologies Group, which also owns Avivid Pipe Robotics LLC.
"Now that we have our water patent, we are collaborating with industry partners to build pilot-scale and field-ready systems to bring our technology to the marketplace," said Tim Conarro, Avivid's VP of business development.
Avivid is one of Rocky Mountain Innosphere's newest client companies.
"We're very excited to be working with Avivid and their team, who are dedicated to solving America's water and infrastructure needs," said Mike Freeman, RMI's CEO. "There will be many great applications for their newly patented process in areas such as testing frack water, produced water and addressing complex municipal waste water issues."
