BALLAST WATER

.

Envirocleanse has developed a Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) in collaboration with Glosten Marine to prevent the transfer of harmful aquatic species via ship’s ballast water. With patented nozzles inside the ballast tanks and a robust hypochlorite generator, the Envirocleanse inTankTM BWTS is the most advanced and sustainable system on the market.

When a vessel uses the inTankTM BWTS, water is taken-up into ballast tanks with no change to existing operating procedures, i.e. no treatment occurs during uptake. The inTankTM BWTS process occurs during the voyage. A small portion of ballast water is suctioned from one ballast water tank at a time, passed through the circulation module, and returned to the same ballast water tank through in-tank mixing nozzles.

The inTankTM BWTS process ensures disinfection of ballast water tanks and piping through the application of a targeted CT, which is the product of disinfection Concentration (in milligrams per liter, mg/L) and disinfection contact Time (in hours) measured as total residual oxidant (TRO).

Envirocleanse is setting new standards for safe and effective treatment of ballast water.

OTHER APPLICATIONS

The Envirocleanse mission is to provide the world with a sustainable biocide. The patent-pending technology behind Envirocleanse was brought to the forefront by Dr. Phil Bellan as a means to fight infection in wounds. In late 2015, Charter Brokerage, a BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY unit, bought Envirocleanse to increase Envirocleanse’s size and scope. Since its purchase, the company has begun to expand into the oil-and-gas, medical, food and food distribution, and the ballast-water-treatment industries. The flagship of Envirocleanse is the FDA-approved and EPA-registered disinfectant known as Envirocleanse-A (the A stands for “Anolite”). The Anolite solution is hypochlorous acid (HOCL), a nontoxic, non-corrosive biodegradable disinfectant. Envirocleanse has teamed up with Glosten Marine Engineering to create the only In-Tank Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) on the market. Treating the water in the tank provides numerous advantages over all other BWTS currently available. To find out more, please contact one of our listed team members.


Frac Pond Water Management

Envirocleanse has a revolutionary solution for Frac Pond Water Management. Utilizing on site electrochemical generators, the Envirocleanse system disperses hypochlorous acid into a frac pond ridding it of all bacteria. Our entire system fits in a 20-foot container for easy shipping and to serve as its housing on site. The container hooks up to a system of nozzles installed at the bottom of the pond to effectively mix the entire body of water.

Hypochlorous acid is non-toxic, sustainable, and requires no special handling. While perfectly safe to non-microscopic organisms, there is no bacteria resistant to the effects of hypochlorous acid. Envirocleanse will not only keep a frac pond from turning green: the reduction of bacteria at the pond will result in cost savings in the form of less chemical needed to reduce bacterial load at a well site.

Medical Industry

HOSPITALS

Envirocleanse-A has many useful applications in hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and other medical facilities. It is an extremely effective means of eliminating bacteria, viruses and fungi when used as a topical disinfectant on hard surfaces, such as tables, sinks, floors and other surfaces. Most important, it is completely nontoxic and biodegradable as well as nonflammable.

Independent laboratory testing has shown Envirocleanse-A to be effective in hard-surface disinfection against bacteria and viruses, including the following:

• MRSA (staphylococcus)
• Norovirus
• VRE (vancomysin-resistant enterococcus)
• Ecoli H7: 157 [NB: 157?]
• H1N1 virus
• Salmonella
• Listeria
• Hepatitis A, B and C

A truly green product, Envirocleanse-A Anolite Solution is completely nontoxic and fully biodegradable.

Envirocleanse-A Anolite Solution is EPA-registered and FDA-approved.

Food Services

Envirocleanse-A has been widely used as a topical disinfectant in the food service and hospitality industry. Since it is completely nontoxic and biodegradable, it poses no risk to workers or the environment and can be used safely on all surfaces that require cleaning and disinfection. It can be sprayed in liquid form, sprayed on, for example, fresh produce to ensure safety and cleanliness. It can also be applied in the form of ice under fish, poultry and other meats. Independent laboratory testing has shown that Envirocleanse-A is an effective hard-surface disinfecting agent against bacteria and viruses, including the following:

• MRSA (staphylococcus)
• Norovirus
• VRE (vancomysin-resistant enterococcus)
• Ecoli H7: 157 [NB: 157?]
• H1N1 virus
• Salmonella
• Listeria
• Hepatitis A, B and C

TECHNOLOGY

Envirocleanse-A, also known as ECAS (electrochemical-activated solution), is a cutting-edge biodegradable and nontoxic disinfectant. It has many practical uses and applications, including the following:

• General hard-surface disinfection (EPA-approved).
• Biocide for oil and gas applications (EPA-approved). It is primarily used for the treatment and elimination of MIC (microbial-induced corrosion) and SRB (sulfate-reducing bacteria).
• Food disinfection (FDA-approved).
• Water disinfection.

Compared to other commonly used disinfectants, Envirocleanse-A does not contain any xenobiotic, or synthetically produced, chemicals. Most important, it causes no harmful effects in humans or other warm-blooded mammals. The EPA has categorized Envirocleanse-A as having the lowest possible toxicity, compared to all other disinfectants currently in use, such as glutaraldehyde, chloramine, sodium hypochlorite (bleach), per acetic acid, quaternary ammonium products, THPS and others.

As an antimicrobial, Envirocleanse-A has a unique and complex mode of action. Its effects are universal on microbes including bacteria (e-coli, listeria and salmonella, among others), viruses (polio, H1N1, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C, among others), fungi (mycobacterium TB) and spores. However, Envirocleanse-A effects only microbes, not humans or other warm-blooded mammals.

Envirocleanse-A’s active chemical compounds are hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and minuscule amounts of inorganic peroxides. These same active compounds are produced within human white blood cells and constitute the “final pathway” of our immune system’s ability to destroy invading microbes. This action explains why, when used in proper amounts, Envirocleanse-A (HOCl) does not cause toxicity in humans but only microbes.

NEWS

JUNE 2017
Maritime Reporter & Engineering News: A new entry to the ballast water treatment promises compliance along with savings in both CapEx and OpEx.
Matt Hughes tells MLPro, “While we do believe we are a viable option for the vast majority of vessels, certainly the high-ballast longer-voyage ships will see the most benefit from our system.” Kevin Reynolds explains, “The ability to completely separate ballast water treatment from in port cargo operations is a huge benefit. Imagine you clog the filter on an in-line system during cargo operations and now you must either notify the Coast Guard or other flag state that you no longer are able to meet your treatment requirements or you need to shut down cargo until you remedy some sort of fix. With an in-tank system, you avoid it and you defer that treatment to the sea passage.” As the Envirocleanse BWTS entry marches quickly towards market entry and regulatory approvals, vessel owners suddenly have a new option – one which costs less to install, less to operate and one which doesn’t impact cargo or ballast operations.

NOVEMBER 2016
Envirocleanse LLC Moves Forward with Patented inTankTM Ballast Water Treatment System
HOUSTON, TX (USA) - Envirocleanse LLC, division of Charter Brokerage, a BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY company, recently submitted a Letter of Intent to the US Coast Guard and the International Maritime Organization indicating that Envirocleanse will apply for Type Approval of their patented Envirocleanse inTankTM Ballast Water Treatment System. Full-scale shipboard trials were performed earlier in 2016 confirming outstanding efficacy of the system in extremely challenging water environments. Seattle, Washington based marine consultancy, Glosten, is a strategic partner in this endeavor, holding the patent rights to the nozzle system and providing engineering expertise. “The inTankTM BWTS does not require a filter,” said Kevin Reynolds, Principal, Glosten. “By treating ballast water in transit, the inTankTM BWTS eliminates critical in port demands on personnel, power, and operations.”
