Global Water Technologies has been issued patent for the on-site production of sulfuric acid by the US Patent and Trademark Office.
The patent covers a process for producing sulfuric acid directly at locations where it is needed and in quantities sufficient for immediate use, thereby reducing the cost and safety concerns of transporting and storing acid.
Research and development of this process began while Global Water was seeking solutions for produced water treatment.
The company is now seeking partners to commercialize the technology in that market and others where low-cost sulfuric acid is needed, especially in remote locations.
Global Water is a clean technology water treatment and services company that provides non-chemical and filtration technologies.
