1 American Eco Systems Revolutionizes the Operations of Seawater Withdrawal and Discharge No maintenance associated with the InvisiHead, no expenses and cheaper than the O&M- intensive wedge wire screen and mesh intakes

2 Seaweed Proliferation Because of Global Warming, climate is changing so is seaweed growth

3 Seaweeds are taking over a once sandy floor Loose floating seaweed clog intake screens

4 Sea weeds are deadly to mesh screens and wedge wire intakes when they become waterborne; sediments go unhindered through screen mesh wire The InvisiHead is weed and sediment proof

5

6 The Screen Clogging Weeds that tangle in wedge wire screens when they become waterborne. They are not cleared off by airbursts. The InvisiHead is unaffected by them The saame goes for travling and band sceens

7 Seaweeds mature by the end of summer and start braking up in the fall threating open channel and screened and wedge wire intakes

8 Buoyancy of seaweed fluctuates throughout the water column. The weeds do not affect the InvisiHead or hinder its operation but deadly to wedge wire screens

9 Dense dead seaweed washes-up near the shore and becomes an operational nightmare for seawater users

10 Jellyfish problems?

11 The InvisiHead A B In the proactive American Eco Systems’ Elmosa Seawater intake system: elements A (the InvisiHead) & B (the NatSep), is all you need to supply any quantity of high quality raw water That’s all you need, simply natural and easy No maintenance or maintenance expenses for life, low capital cost, robust structure, supported for G5 hurricane force useful life: 50+ years

12 The InvisiHead manages and controls the quality of the intake system  Passive operation, no parts or moving parts to replace ;  Self-operating & maintaining for life of over 50 years;  No Maintenance or O&M expenses associated. US EPA: Best Technology Available (BTA) The InvisiHead Intake Head Robust and stable under all operating conditions

13 The IH is hydraulically invisible to suspended materials Super slow approach and entrance velocity (0.002 and 0.09 m/s) guarantee the absolute minimum if any of:  Fish, jellyfish, sand, Seaweed & debris to enter the intake system;  The IH system has been upgraded in 2013 to have the sequence of the four flow phases better eliminate tuned to eliminate marine life like fish & jellyfish, sediment and debris inflow;  System maintenance-free operation makes money by saving O&M expenses. The InvisiHead is also cheaper to buy than wedge wire screens. The IH is hydraulically invisible to suspended materials Super slow approach and entrance velocity (0.002 and 0.09 m/s) guarantee the absolute minimum if any of:  Fish, jellyfish, sand, Seaweed & debris to enter the intake system;  The IH system has been upgraded in 2013 to have the sequence of the four flow phases better eliminate tuned to eliminate marine life like fish & jellyfish, sediment and debris inflow;  System maintenance-free operation makes money by saving O&M expenses. The InvisiHead is also cheaper to buy than wedge wire screens. The flow goes through 4 phases:  Approach, 0.002m/s,  Entrance – 0.09m/s’  Stabilization – 0.11m/s,  Steady State – intake pipe V. The InvisiHead: Self-operating, Self-maintaining

14 The IH is hydraulically invisible to suspended materials, super slow entrance velocity (0.09 m/s max), absolute minimum of: Seaweed, Sand, Fish, Mussels, Trash & debris  Radial 3-D diffusion of effluent funneling out in multi directionality;  High heat transfer rate allows quick attainment of equilibrium conditions and achieves the required dilution within the vicinity of the outfall;  Ideal for power plant cooling water and RO brine discharge;  Ideal for deep sea discharge of treated industrial and municipal effluents;  Effluent and outfall pipe can be bundled with intake pipes to reduce construction costs. Meets and exceeds US EPA Standards

15 The InvisiHead can be fitted directly to pump intake pipes to work as efficient strainers and outfalls in platforms and offshore installations Either hanging or outfall intake

16 Or fixed to the sea floor The InvisiHead systems used as efficient and non clogging strainer intake or outfall

17 Any suspended solids flow into the intake pipe as part of the flow will settle near the upstream end of the NatSep. Clean high quality water flows into the pump chamber; Screening systems are completely eliminated; NatSep allows uninterrupted operation during cleanup; NatSep cleaned once in about 5 years for one day.

18 Simple and Natural We at American Eco Systems we design seawater intakes and outfalls to be maintenance – free, to provide full flow capacity under all operation and weather conditions non-stop for over 50 years The system is environmental-friendly and supports biodiversity, the 4-compartment NatSep delivers clean water to the pumps. The AES system is all passive, screen-less and contains no moving parts. The system starts at the InvisiHead and ends at the NatSep as an intake and starts at siphon chamber and ends at the InvisiHead diffuser as an outfall. No O&M or any related expenses involved at the IH. We design the pipes to be self-cleansing. No bio growth or sediments and debris settlement inside the intake and discharge pipes Open Sea, InvisiHead Intake Head HDPE or GRP, NatSep, Clean water From the Plant, InvisiHead Diffuser, Syphon Chamber To Plant, Elmosa, The Waves Company Elmosa-American Eco Systems, LLC 540 Centre St., Nutley, NJ 07110, USA T

19 Elmosa proactive system operating expenses saved The InvisiHead makes money since no O&M is involved; it pays back its capital in a few months into operation

20 Flow sequence: 4 phases: PHASE I. PHASE I. Approach starts at about 5m away from the entrance; streamlines take off stealthily from the seafloor at 0.002m/s-too slow to disturb or attract sediment, fish eggs, larvae, and debris; PHASE II. PHASE II. Entrance at 0.09m/s too slow to attract, fish, Jellyfish, seaweeds, sand and debris; PHASE III. PHASE III. Stabilization: IH outlet at 0.11m/s out of phase by 90  of local currents flow is much slower than the currents to let fish, Jellyfish, sediment and debris if the stray in they end up in the ambient again through the opposite end; PHASE IV. PHASE IV. Steady State for clear naturally filtered high quality water to flow to the plant. No fish mortality+0$ on O&M = BTA. Why the InvisiHead is a Best Technology Available BTA as designated by the US EPA CONCLUSION
