Symbios Technologies Wins NSF Phase II Technology Award for Innovative Water Treatment Technology

Symbios Technologies LLC, a leading developer of water and energy technologies, has been awarded a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). This prestigious two-year grant was awarded to advance and commercialize Symbios’ Tubular Plasma Reactor™ (TPR) for water treatment and improving the economic and environmental impact of domestic oil and gas extraction.

The patent-pending Symbios TPR is an innovative approach to eliminating organic pollutants and microorganisms from water by implementing low-power, distributed electrolytic technology. The TPR minimizes the need for chlorine and other chemicals and can reduce costs of key steps in treating oil and gas wastewaters by 95%. It can also reduce demand for fresh water used for hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and ease transportation, regulatory, and cost issues associated with using chemical oxidants and biocides while preventing well contamination and equipment corrosion.

“Symbios’ non-chemical plasma water treatment system is a potential game-changer in oil and gas wastewater remediation, and could make possible widespread recycling of fracking wastewaters vs. the predominant practice of deep well disposal,” said Symbios president and CEO, Justin Bzdek. “Our technologies will also enable exciting new research and commercial expansion in power generation, biorefining, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage markets.”

The NSF funding will be used for improvements to Symbios’ successful lab prototype, which was developed and tested at the Colorado State University Research Innovation Center in Fort Collins, Colorado, for the creation of a commercial prototype with Symbios’ strategic partners, and to prepare for production.
