Cleaner oil sands EXTRACTION
CalAgua's oil sands extraction solution provides a scalable greenfield option for bitumen separation that uses limited heat and water, producing tailings that can be reclaimed and limited greenhouse gas emissions.
A BITUMEN EXTRACTION PROCESS THAT IS BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT:
Our revolutionary process offers an environmentally sustainable ionic liquid bitumen extraction process that is ideal for greenfield oil sands developments.
Separates sand from bitumen without the creation of tailings ponds and can be built to required production size.
Using ionic liquids limits the need for water, eliminating the creation of tailings ponds from sands extraction.
Using our ionic liquids significantly decreases greenhouse gas emissions generated from steam and water heating.
By radically re-thinking the traditional mining and separation processes, using ionic liquids can extract bitumen sources that would have been previously inaccessible.
