Additional Solvent Opens Up New Project Potentials Around the World
LAS VEGAS, Feb. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vivakor, Inc. (OTC: VIVK), a technology and asset acquisition company with a focus in the area of natural resources, has recently finished third party testing of an additional solvent for use in its Middle East remediation projects. Vivakor’s engineering team was successful in using this new solvent in its proprietary extraction process of heavy crude from oil spills, with acceptable post processed material standards imposed by governments in the region.
“We are very excited about the results of integrating a new solvent into our Remediation Processing Centers (RPCs) which expands the range of potential projects available to the Company. In certain parts of the world we are limited on the availability of hydrocarbon chemicals that are used in our process. This third party testing verified that our new solvent, coupled with our proprietary process, will remove the hydrocarbons to less than a half of a percent post extraction. This level of post processed, Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon residual is a standard required by many projects in the region. This opens up several new project possibilities for the company,” stated Vivakor Chief Executive Officer Matt Nicosia.
