Water Council member AquaMost was recently featured on Bloomberg TV in a video titled A New Way of Cleaning Up Dirty Fracking Water. The video details a new technology that cleans water used during hydraulic fracturing–or “fracking”–and recycle it in an environmentally friendly way. “We found that in the field we can help clean the water they use to drill for gas and recycle it on site without the use of chemicals,” said AquaMost CEO Todd Asmuth.

What sets AquaMost apart from other bacterial treatment and polymer reduction process is that it uses no added chemical feedstocks. Other processes use chemicals like peroxide to clean water, which can be hazerdous in it’s own right. AquaMost, by contrast, uses electrically charged titanium plates and ultraviolet lights to recycle water on site. “Finding efficient environmentally safe ways to take bad water and make clean water and moving the planet forward.”

It was this innovative process which made AquaMost a finalist in the Saint-Gorbain’s NOVA Innovation Competition 2012. Competitors from 28 countries submitted ideas for green construction materials, energy conservation, clean technologies, construction industry services, lighting and display, and advanced materials. AquaMost was chosen as one of the eight finalists out of 168 entries to pitch their idea to a pannel of experts in San Francisco. As a finalist, AquaMost will have the opportunity to partner with Saint-Gobain in joint development, licensing or other collaboration agreements.
