SWW Energy (ASX: SWW) is an Australian company involved in the marketing of SWW biodiesel production plant design and operations intellectual property. The Company is also engaged in the development and/or acquisition of new renewable energy technologies as well as recycling business.
SWW Energy (ASX: SWW) has delivered initial results from its waste water to biodiesel/biofuel testing which has demonstrated the potential for waste water to be converted to a fuel.
Initial observations from the water sample showed usable effluent and that material could be converted to a fuel at 6% of the total solution, with a British thermal unit range of 110,000 per U.S. gallon.
The company is working with its U.S. partner, White Mountain Group, to determine whether waste water containing a polymer – primarily vegetable and petroleum based – oil can be successfully refined into a fuel base to be further refined into biodiesel or a biofuel.
The evaluation process involved the sourcing of appropriate waste water, processing and independent testing including fuel quality testing.
Make up water was processed, with refined materials that can be converted to fuel base identified.
Each waste water sample was representative of waste streams commonly found in developed, populated areas, including Interceptor waste water, transported non-hazardous water sources, and sump waste water – typically found at car washes and other locations.
Ridgeline Energy Services completed testing and evaluation of sample solutions using its electro-catalytic technology for treating waste water sources.
Initial test results have confirmed that the test samples are compatible with Ridgeline’s electro-catalytic technology.
The resulting water testing showed reductions of total dissolved solids, total suspended solids and other contaminates by up to 90%, and that the valuable waste materials were 100% removed and recovered from the sample solution.
SWW will continue with further testing, evaluation of test results and consideration of applications of Ridgeline’s electro-catalytic process.
The test runs are expected to provide sufficient materials for the company to assess whether it has the basis for commercial scale tests at municipal and industrial waste water facilities.
In addition to its renewable fuel activities, SWW is also actively reviewing a number of potential acquisitions across a number of types of minerals as well as oil and gas opportunities.
