Containment Recovery

The significance of trace chemicals in our water and air are of increasing interest due to their known and unknown effects on human health, as well as the health of animals, plants and effects on the whole ecosystem.

AquaFlex’s products are all based on Scott Smith’s patent pending technology for the simultaneous detection and removal of oil and related contamination from water. Essentially AquaFlex technology is based on an open-cell foam membrane that traps water contaminants that may otherwise remain undetected. Like a sponge, the flexible elastomeric foam acts like a capillary network similar to the alveoli of the human lungs; the Open-Cell foam absorbs contamination and exhales clear water, one drop at a time. The trapped contaminants are collected and can be analyzed by independent laboratories.

Note that none of AquaFlex’s Open-Cell foam products can be used in applications that require potable water or drinkable water. These products are designed to be used in non-potable applications including (but not limited to) industrial chemical and oil spills, where it is important to test water for detection of harmful toxicants, bacteria and chemicals, while substantially removing more than 80% of the oil and/or chemicals spilled in the water.

Harmful algae blooms have been reported near the coastal areas of the USA and Canada, according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration and other local authorities.

Toxins go into the food supply network, creating further problems for the food chain. Other effects include respiratory issues in humans if the reside close enough to the impacted shoreline. Phytoplankton — organisms that float across the ocean surface are a vital food source for fish and other creatures in the oceans and lakes, however some phytoplankton’s produce biotoxins that harm marine life.

AquaFlex products aid in the recovery and retrieval of these Algae blooms and with the multiple reuse nature of AquaFlex products for recover of Algae and redeployment makes the economics of treatment of impacted areas better.

AquaFlex Canada achieves what one time non useable plastics cannot achieve and its bio-degradable qualities make disposal in landfill achievable.

Solutions that Save the Environment

The AquaFlex Canada Open-Cell foam does not absorb water. It absorbs oil and chemicals into the Open-Cell capillary network while repelling water thereby allowing water to pass through. The buoyant foam material is 70-percent lighter than conventional booms. Less than 12 feet of AquaFlex Open-Cell foam can absorb/detect more than 60 pounds of oil. Unlike conventional sorbents, even at full saturation with oil and chemicals AquaFlex products will not sink.

Oil can be wrung out of the AquaFlex Open-Cell foam, where it can be collected and sent to refineries for reuse. After the wringing process, the AquaFlex foam can be redeployed, and it can be reused up to 100 times. After extensive reuse, the bio-degradable foam can be safely disposed of.
