Reduction in Total Hydrocarbon Contamination to 0.2% Versus Required 0.5%
LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / March 31, 2020 / Vivakor, Inc. (OTC PINK:VIVK), a clean technology and asset acquisition company announces it has received third party testing results from its initial oil remediation operations in Kuwait. Results indicate that Vivakor's Remediation Processing Center Technology has reduced the Total Hydrocarbon Contamination (THC) from over 200,000 Parts Per Million (PPM) or 20% to 2100 PPM or to 0.2%. The required PPM are to be less than 5000 or 0.5%. The oil sludge remediation is part of the overall clean up of Kuwait from the Iraqi invasion some 25 years ago, and is an ongoing United Nations sanctioned clean up effort.
"We are very pleased with the results from Kuwait, as they are consistent with the results that we have forecast for this project. The pre-processed material for this set of testing was over 20% Total Hydrocarbon Contamination and our revolutionary clean technology was able to reduce that to .2%. This is an incredible achievement, and first of its kind in the region. We see a huge opportunity for the Company's technology in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region of the world, where there are literally millions of metric tons of hydrocarbon contaminated material to be processed. Our technology has the potential to be applied to all materials where the hydrocarbon content is more than 7% and as high as 40%. This also can eliminate the need for landfills from hydrocarbon waste making the region one of the most progressive on environmental clean up in the world," stated Vivakor Chief Executive Officer Matt Nicosia.
