Rapid Response

Kill Spill Rapid Response System

Oil Spill Rapid Response System that can be deployed around the world within 12 - 24 hours in case of oil spill emergencies. Highly scalable mobile equipment can be easily delivered by a cargo plane, ship, railway or truck to the site of accident and get mounted on a barge, work-boat, ship, pontoon or tractor trailer. Full cycle cleaning process results in complete removal of oil, other hydrocarbons, dispersants and contaminants from water. Oil is fully recovered in form of marketable hydrocarbons.

The system is based on our proprietary fully autonomous rapid-response oil remediation technology, consisting of two units, water purification unit and cartridge-regeneration / oil-recovery unit.

Each mobile unit is a self sufficient ZERO-waste, ZERO-emission full-cycle facility.

15 Reasons to choose “Kill Spill” Rapid Response System

1. Immediate availability. Fully functional units can be deployed on a short notice and delivered to a site of an accident within 12 – 24 hours.

2. Mobility. Each unit is based on a standard 20 ft (6 m) x 8 ft (2.4 m) platform. Equipment is designed for easy air transportation by available commercial and military cargo aircraft capable of landing at a wide variety of airports.

3. Easy to install on a barge, work-boat, ship, pontoon or tractor trailer.

4. Full recovery of hydrocarbons from the polluted water in form of gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil, jet fuel, mazut and other marketable products.

5. Complete removal and processing of any dispersants and other contaminants.

6. The system completely eliminates the use of dispersants in cleanup operations.

7. Kill Spill system requires a limited quantity of sorbent due to regeneration of used sorbent by the system within the technological process.

8. The system is ecologically safe. It produces absolutely no pollution into atmosphere, water or soil. Full cycle ZERO-emission, ZERO-waste technology.

9. Modular, fully autonomous units.

10. Economically viable, low O&M cost technology that produces marketable liquid hydrocarbons from recovered oil, as well as other marketable materials from dispersants.

11. System is able to process contaminated waters from different depths, from the surface to the ocean bottom.

12. Fully automated, state of the art system is equipped with a sophisticated computerized controls for effective monitoring of water purification, oil recovery and absorbent regeneration process.

13. High efficiency, amazing productivity and outstanding results. Each unit can process up to 240+ m3 of contaminated water per hour, 24 hours a day.

14. System is equipped with an advanced sonar device to ensure reliable identification and mapping of under-the-surface oil plumes and glaciers, as well as dispersant concentrations.

15. Highest level of personnel safety.

Principle of Operation

Our environmentally friendly and commercially viable technology is based on Pyrolysis process. 

Pyrolysis is an endothermic reaction (unlike gasification and combustion, which are usually exothermic reactions) and, therefore, requires input of energy, which is typically applied directly or indirectly to the waste material.

Upon completion of the process the petroleum-based waste disintegrates into three distinct fractions: solid, liquid and gaseous, that are separated and processed to produce the value-added marketable products:

1. Gaseous fraction: Light gas, Propane-Butane (Natural Gas) and Divinyl (Butadiene). 

2. The liquid fraction: kerosene, diesel, gasoline and mazut (heavy fuel oil). Mazut may be used as fuel oil, in the preparation of distillate and residual lubricating oils, in cracking or hydrogenation processes for the manufacture of motor fuel (gasoline or diesel fuel), and in the production of bitumen and coke, depending on its chemical composition and properties. 

The fractional composition of the liquid fraction shows that up to 85% of it can be used in high quality fuel production, which is more than twice as much as one can get from natural crude oil.

3. The solid fraction consists of carbon.
