Boulder, Colorado-based chemical technology company Clean Chemistry said it was issued three patents that cover “formulae, synthesis methods and use of unique oxidant chemistries” by the US Patent and Trademark Office.
Clean Chemistry said that specifically, the patents cover “the only known production processes for large scale quantities of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in easy-to-use, liquid formulations.”
Clean Chemistry CEO Damon Waters said: “These patents protect our investment in developing economic chlorine alternatives for difficult, industrial problems.
“Shrinking budgets in oil and gas haven’t made it easy for the industry to adopt new technologies that lessen the environmental impacts of fracking.
“Clean Chemistry’s customers have been able to achieve better water with biodegradable chemicals at a lower cost, filling an unmet need in the market.”
