  • Reps. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, and Gwen Graham, D-Tallahassee, and leaders of the Everglades Foundation will meet Thursday at the White House with Vice President Joe Biden to discuss Everglades protection efforts and the recent discovery of a toxic, blue-and-green algae bloom on the east side of Lake Okeechobee.
    Everglades restoration and discharges from Lake Okeechobee into the St. Lucie River are big issues in Murphy’s Palm Beach-Treasure Coast House district. Murphy displayed a bottle of brownish St. Lucie River water to President Barack Obama when the president flew into Fort Pierce for a golf weekend last month. Murphy flew on Air Force One with Obama last week when the president came to Everglades National Park for an Earth Day speech.
    Everglades Foundation CEO Eric Eikenberg said Biden has been a supporter of Everglades restoration efforts since his days in the Senate. Eikenberg said the Foundation is pushing for approximately $240 million in federal money for Army Corps of Engineers and Department of the Interior projects for the fiscal year that begins in October.

  • PORT MAYACA, Fla. —Toxins have been found in a large blue-green algae bloom growing in Lake Okeechobee, according to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
    After conducting tests on algae samples collected last week, scientists confirmed low levels of microcystin, a toxin found in blue-green algae.
    The bloom has grown significantly since last week, continuing to spread into the C-44 canal which eventually dumps into the St. Lucie Estuary. Toxic blue-green algae caused extensive damage to the estuary just two years ago.
    The Army Corps of Engineers halted lake water discharges east into the St. Lucie Estuary on Friday and announced Monday afternoon the releases would remain suspended while scientists continued conducting tests on the algae bloom.
    Charter boat captain Mike Conner said he fears it’s only a matter of time before engineers decide to resume releases, and the algae makes its way into the estuary.
    “If they do, the public outcry is going to be tremendous on this one,” Conner said. “You can’t let water like this go into the estuary, period. Human lives are at stake.”
    The Martin County Health Department has posted advisory signs warning people to avoid contact with the water because of blue-green algae levels.
    According to the Department of Environmental Protection, test results indicated a toxin level of 4.6 mg/l. At those levels, officials said adverse health impacts from short-term recreational exposures are unlikely. Testing will continue to determine if levels of toxin are increasing.

    Master Manufacturing Agreement

    Well I would think that they will probably renew. But if FNES chose not to it would probably be because they have other manufacturing companies in mind to outsource to with higher capacity. That is my opinion only. Ecosphere Technologies owns 30.5% of FNES so if there is a larger growth initiative for that subsidiary which includes farming out the manufacturing to other firms in order to grow the economy of scale that is needed, then that would be a good thing in my opinion. Guess we will find out.

    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).

  • 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

    hurstbw hurstbw Apr 15, 2015 6:32 PM Flag

    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.
