This latest project will build on a previous initiative with up to a trio of field trials aimed at supporting regulatory authorities and industry to establish new standards and practices for the use of online oil-in-water analyzers at remote locations.
Acknowledging the necessity to better understand treatment needs, economic challenges, and public health and environmental risks of industry’s waste water, the Texas Legislature recently passed Senate Bill 601, establishing a Texas Produced Water Consortium.
In the original grant application for renewable desalination, the startup mentioned solar thermal, but Gary Katz had originally thought industrial waste heat energy would be the ideal source. But, as he noted ruefully, “As a startup, you have to pivot to what the market will support."
