DELIVERING STEP CHANGES IN COST, PERFORMANCE AND ENVIRONMENTAL
IMPACT FOR UNCONVENTIONAL ENERGY PRODUCTION WITH IONIC LIQUIDS
TECHNOLOGIES & SERVICES
A permanent tailings cleanup solution that can be integrated into existing infrastructure to process oil sands tailings ponds. The additive produces clear water from tailings in years instead of centuries to eliminate Canada's most significant environmental liability.
An oil sands extraction solution that provides a scalable greenfield option for bitumen separation that uses limited heat and water. It produces dry tailings that can be reclaimed and limited greenhouse gas emissions.
CalAgua has developed the only known solvent to extract kerogen from oil shale and produce high-grade, low sulphur liquid fuels.
The flexibility of the ionic liquid design platform provides significant advantage over normal solvents, whereby the CalAgua team can develop chemistry-based process solutions from commodity components that address specific client requirements.
