    My take is that it would be Fidelity National / Hydrozonix on the pretreatment before sending to municipal treatment centers. However, that may be at a quality that is acceptable for further processing I would think. Just my speculation. Ecosphere is still 30.5% owner in FNES so they benefit. Once the EPA gets exposure to Ozonix and its effectiveness I say watch out! Hydrozonix is part owned by Phillips & Jordan who are no strangers to government contracts so if anyone can make it happen I put my money on them.

  • EPA is proposing pretreatment standards for the Oil and Gas Extraction Category (40 CFR Part 435). The regulations would address discharges of wastewater pollutants from onshore unconventional oil and gas (UOG) extraction facilities to publicly-owned treatment works (POTWs).
    •Federal Register Notice (April 7, 2015)
    •Technical Development Document (EPA-821-R-15-003, March 2015)

    Documents related to this rulemaking can be found at EPA’s on-line docket website at regulations.gov. The Docket Number is EPA-HQ-OW-2014-0598.

    Public Comments

    EPA is requesting comments on this proposal. Comments must be received no later than June 8, 2015. Please see the Federal Register notice for details.

  • Effluent Limitations Guidelines and Standards for the Oil and Gas Extraction Point Source Category

    Docket ID: EPA-HQ-OW-2014-0598 |Agency: Environmental Protection Agency

    Abstract:

    Recent advances in the well completion process, combining hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, have made extraction of oil and natural gas from unconventional oil and gas (UOG) resources more technologically and economically feasible. UOG process wastewater may be generated in large quantities and contains constituents that are potentially harmful to human health and the environment. Process wastewater from UOG wells often contains high concentrations of total dissolved solids (TDS) (salt content). The wastewater may also contain various organic chemicals, inorganic chemicals, metals, and naturally-occurring radioactive materials (NORM). These large quantities of potentially harmful wastewater create a need for appropriate wastewater management infrastructure and management practices. This regulation would strengthen existing federal controls on pollutant discharges from certain oil and gas extraction facilities by establishing pretreatment standards that would prevent the discharge of pollutants in process wastewater from on-shore unconventional oil and gas extraction facilities to publicly owned treatment works (POTWs).

    Fidelity National Environmental Solutions has had a strong presence in the Oklahoma/Arkansas region since they rolled out the first Ozonix machines for Southwestern Energy and Newfield Exploration. The technology is PROVEN with years of data in the region. The alternative for oil and gas companies to just dispose of the wastewater in injection wells has shown to be a non-sustainable solution. Water is wasted, earthquakes are causing larger problems. The answer is to deal with and recycle the waste water. Ozonix is a leader in this high volume processing of water at low cost to the oil / gas industry.

  • The onslaught of seismic activity in Oklahoma in recent years has captured the attention of the nation.

    State scientists say they have uncovered the root cause of the majority of the state’s earthquakes: the oil and gas industry’s disposal of billions of barrels of water underground.

    Now, as the public absorbs this information, Oklahoma’s regulatory bodies are keeping a watchful eye on these disposal wells and planning their next moves.

    Link between earthquakes and industry

    On Tuesday, the Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) issued its most strongly worded statement yet linking the oil and gas industry to the state’s earthquakes.

    State geologist Richard D. Andrews and state seismologist Austin Holland say the spike in earthquakes — particularly in central and north-central areas of the state — is “very unlikely to represent a naturally occurring process.”

    “The primary suspected source of triggered seismicity is not from hydraulic fracturing but from the injection/disposal of water associated with oil and gas production,” the report from the Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) reads.

    The seismicity rate in Oklahoma is about 600 times greater than it was before 2008, around the time dewatering started in the state.

  • Phillips & Jordan have the C-44 Canal Project. Can't see why they would go through the trouble of patenting a process idea unless they were proposing to Phillips & Jordan and the Army Corps of Engineers.

    10-K Annual Report filed today

    Biggest news to me is that they possibly have an interested public company that wants to purchase a portion or all of a new subsidiary that they formed called Sea of Green, Inc. They assigned global rights to the Growcube technology to Sea of Green. So far all that happened was an initial $100K bridge financing and possibly another $400K coming. The buy-in or buy-out of the subsidiary would be no less than $2M from what I am reading and it is not a given. They have an investment fund working the deal for them. Otherwise, we hold hope that continued orders of equipment and licensing deals will pile up through ICAP for the Ozonix and Ecos Powercube technologies.

    New Contract

    When have they said that they were leaving the original business plan premise? All I have seen is that they spliced up the pieces of the licensing pie in order to allow for more participation in specialized applications and regions of operation to be licensed within each overall subsidiary formed by Ecosphere (Municipal, Mining, Industrial, Food & Beverage, Marine, etc.) Seems to me that they must have licensees who are willing to commit to their area of focus, but not the whole category on a global / regional basis. Guess we will find out what the new valuation calculation is for the company and subsidiaries soon as calculated by the third party. In a previous filing they used Navigant Consulting which is a reputable firm for valuations.

    New Contract

    I was looking at the licensing opportunities page for Ozonix on the Ecosphere website and they have changed the Landfills Leachate and Ports & Terminals to a Sold status just like the Energy sector has Sold status. I assumed that the US H2O, Inc. licensing deal was a domestic licensing and not a global licensing agreement. It is a little confusing by the web page showing it sold out if it is still available for other countries/regions to license. Just an observation.

    Secondary?

    I disagree with going the route of dilution. Monetization through partnerships of licensing rights within the subsidiaries is the way to go. ESPH can maintain manufacturing, retain interest in the subsidiary and reap royalties on volumes of water processed all without taking on debt or diluting our shares.

  • Water recycling should be a huge initiative for California and Texas to complement the water restrictions that were just implemented. Ecosphere should capitalize on this.

    So, I guess the question is which of the subsidiaries is close to a larger financing arrangement? Ecosphere Municipal, LLC / Ecosphere Marine, LLC (U.S. H2O, Inc. licensee), Ecos Powercube (caught William Brisben/Brisben Water Solutions interest), Ecos Growcube, Inc.(Forza Partners, Inc./Investor Relations), Ecosphere Food & Beverage, LLC (Brasil Clean Energy licensee), Ecosphere Mining, LLC (Utah based location/offices) are all irons in the fire. Could be any of the above. Stay tuned.

    The registrant is awaiting the results of a third-party valuation of its ownership interest in Fidelity National Environmental Solutions, LLC in order to complete the presentation of its financial statements, and the analysis thereof.

    In addition, the registrant is in the process of seeking bridge financing prior to a larger financing of a new subsidiary in order to roll out the technology the registrant has developed for a field of use. While no assurances can be given, the registrant’s management believes it will close the bridge financing in the next two weeks and that disclosure will permit the registrant to update the registrant’s shareholders on its plans.

  • The latest filing of 5% acquisition or more with the SEC yesterday states the William Brisben and Brisben Water Solutions, LLC increased its stake in common stock and warrants to an amount equal to 21.8% of ESPH outstanding shares. He served as U.S. Ambassador for United Nations Intl. Childrens Fund (UNICEF) for both of President Bush's terms in the 2000s. My opinion is that he must have the means and a plan for Ecosphere's Ecos Powercube, Ecos Growcube, and Ozonix water technologies in the Humanitarian/Government sectors. Just my speculation of course.

    Hydrozonix continues to sponsor and participate in major oil and gas services / water conferences and treat millions of barrels of the worst polluted industrial waters out there. Hydrozonix is excited about doing the same in Canada. I know it will continue to grow in importance to recycle water in that industry alone. Now add in Mining, Food & Beverage, Municipal, Industrial, Marine, Government/Emergency Response/Humanitarian etc. and all the sub-licensing categories that can be spliced from each and licensed on a global scale and you have a huge marketplace that is untapped.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • This is still way undervalued at these levels in my opinion. Global applications in several industries and it is still just being rolled out. I hope we hear more licensing / partnerships of the Ozonix, Ecos Powercube, or Ecos Growcube soon.

    I plan on doing more Twitter posts about Ecosphere as it releases announcements, developments, press, and licensing agreements for their water management solution. With each PR that they put out I plan on re-tweeting each of them. Hope others will do the same to get the word out to the right channels. Seems like maybe this Twitter thing works and is here to stay.
