Electrochemical Processes Stuttgart, Germany A highly qualified company since 1989 that provides electrochemical technology worldwide for remediation of soils, water sheds and recovery of petroleum waste. ECP has developed technologies of remediation and is offering the electrochemical remediation known as ECGO, proven internationally that it is advanced and has an excellent cost to benefit ratio, obtaining fast results and its application is covered by licenses that will protect the developer of the ecp technology.
ECGO TECHNOLOGY ELECTROCHEMICAL GEO OXIDATION Developed in Germany Over 20 years of application Used in more than 20 countries throughout the World 5,000,000 metric tons of treated media 30,000 hours of operation Applicable for liquids, solids and soft media Elimination of Heavy Metals via electroplating Application on site and off site
Minimal equipment and labor Low rate or electrical power, transformer, control panel, electrodes, cables and water / air hoses is the bulk of the required equipment, provided by us Environmentally friendly Does not generate toxic effluents Hydrocarbons will be degraded to CO2 and water Heavy Metals will be plated to the electrodes for final disposal Excellent cost to benefit ratio ECGO TECHNOLOGY ELECTROCHEMICAL GEO OXIDATION
ECGO installations in Europe UK France Norway Sweden Denmark Luxembourg Austria Germany Belgium Italy Croatia Poland
Markets in countries outside Europe USA Japan Venezuela Mexico Canada Indonesia Argentina Kuwait Brazil
TYPES OF TREATMENT 1.SOIL REMEDIATION: Complete removal of Heavy Metals, Hydrocarbon contaminations, organic or inorganic pollutants treated on or offsite 2.Remediation of Residual and underground water 3.Remediation of Dredging material (ports, rivers, etc.) 4.First step to reinforce Earth Dams and soft soils 5.First steps for Oil Spills and emergencies in Ships, Industries and transportation 6.Recovery of Crude Oil, Heavy Oils and Bitumen
Treatment of environmental pollutants 1.Refineries 2.Petrochemicals 3.Carbon and Gas plants 4.Landfills 5.Chemical Plants 6.Cleaning of Settlings in Rivers, Ports 7.Cleaning of Dredging Soils 8.Gasoline Stations
