"ECOPOD" TECHNOLOGY A number of promising technologies based on electrochemistry have been developed for industrial wastewater cleanup and recycling applications. Principal amongst these new technologies is Environmentally Conscious Technologies Inc., (ECT) ECOPOD System. Waste water technologies used over the last couple of decades have significant shortcomings towards meeting new stringent environmental standards. Various new configurations for wastewater contaminate separation including petroleum have been developed, however most are costly, require high maintenance, have limited abilities or not transportable for remote site operation. ECOPOD: Electro-Coagulation POD System is an electrochemistry method used to coagulate wastewater contaminates for ease of separation and collection within a wastewater stream. Wastewater when exposed to a controlled electrical field allows microscopic solids to attach, (like magnetism) forming higher concentrations of solids for greater removal efficiencies. Selective material types or coatings applied to the anodes and cathodes provide ECOPOD's with several unique abilities in utilizing half redox ion reactions. Oily-wastewater is composed of suspended oily lipid droplets in water, interspersed with solid solutes and with dissolved compounds, each having different molecular weights, chemistries and electrical charges. These electrical charges can be measured as the 'zeta potential', and tend to keep oily lipid droplets, solid particles and dissolved compounds from interacting chemically. Therefore under suitable conditions of controlled and carefully-applied DC wattage, (ECT's patent pending) several unique physic-chemical effects result: 1. Coalescing Super Coagulation: Neutralize charge surrounds lipid droplets, allowing them to quickly coalesce and super-coagulate out of an emulsion. This applies to both heavy and to aromatic-hydrocarbons, with any specific results in coalescing and super-coagulating dependent upon compound molecular weights and their concentration within the influent stream. 2. Chemical Oxidation: The creations of free hydroxyl (OH-) radicals within solution rapidly and aggressively combine oily lipids, particulate solutes and dissolved compounds depending on their individual chemistries. 3. In particular, ECOPOD has the potential to breakdown complex organic molecules, including high molecular weight compounds that may be resistant to other forms of treatment, such as pesticides, herbicides, dyes and wet-process chemicals. 4. ECOPOD works on many dissolved metals by forming stable metallic oxides which rapidly precipitate from solution as particles, allowing higher levels of removal. 5. The ECOPOD treatment process directly reduces BOC, COD, TOC, TDS and TSS in most waste water applications. 6. Biological Inactivation – ECOPOD's free hydroxyl (OH-) radicals rapidly and aggressively combine to destroy bacteria, viruses, cysts, macrophages and other organic biological contaminants, similar to the effect of using ozone,
