The Hospital Disinfectant That’s Making Fracking Greener

Fracking seems to have more going against it than for it, but a South Carolina-based company is hoping the oil and gas industry will mitigate environmental damages and health concerns with its latest product, Excelyte.

Excelyte is an EPA-approved solution that addresses major controversies associated with fracking: pollution of groundwater with toxic chemicals, release of hydrogen sulfide that endangers oil field workers’ lives, and excess wastewater.

Integrated Environmental Technologies (IET) originally developed the solution as a final surface cleaner to eliminate hospital-acquired infections like tuberculosis, and then to prevent foodborne illnesses in food production. Excelyte has been proven to be 99.9999% effective against HIV, H1N1, Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria, among other bacteria and viruses. The solution’s main active ingredient is hypochlorous acid—a naturally occurring molecule in the human body that fights infection.

Healthcare to food production was a natural extension, but in searching for other applications where bacteria and viruses posed as a deadly threat, IET found an industry that’s desperate to improve its environmental impact: oil and gas.

Excelyte is currently being tested in Utah and New Mexico in its first foray into the oil and gas scene. David LaVance, CEO of IET, said several well-known companies are using the product, but would not reveal which ones.

“We figured out that if our product was really safe for hospitals and for food, that it should be quite safe for oil and gas,” said LaVance. “We’ve done a whole series of tests and now have written papers on it that demonstrate it can be used underground in wells, and it of course has no detrimental effect on the water supply because this is a product that is safe for humans.”

LaVance has spent a majority of his career in healthcare and is also Chairman of the Board of Hologic, a leading provider of diagnostic and imaging systems related to women’s health, such as mammograms and pap tests.

A single frack job takes millions of gallons of water, with only 25-30% of that water recovered for reuse. IET claims that by mixing water with Excelyte’s bacteria and sulfur-fighting properties instead of toxic chemicals, twice as much wastewater can be recovered for reuse in fracking instead of using fresh water.

Hydrogen sulfide, a naturally occurring gas that can be released during oil and gas production, is the most frequent killer of oil field workers. Excelyte is a hydrogen sulfide scavenger that combines chemically to hydrogen sulfide. The solution, which took over five years to develop into a substance fit for production in industrial quantities, is also designed to leave no trace on the environment.

“Our product persists for only 90 days and then it disintegrates,” said LaVance. “It’s not underground for very long and things go back to normal after that. So it’s a quick-acting biocide.”

The state of Utah is optimistic about oil and gas companies using Excelyte to address environmental concerns.

“If companies are looking at this product as a way to prevent some of those things from happening, we’re certainly in favor of it,” said John Baza, director of the Oil, Gas and Mining Division in Utah. “We would encourage that kind of creative and innovative thinking.”

Wherever fracking is involved, controversy has traditionally followed. Concerns range from polluting drinking water with toxic chemicals to setting earthquake records. A community in the North Texan city of Denton, which is believed to hold one of the biggest natural gas reserves in the U.S., recently captured the attention of the energy industry with an attempt to ban hydraulic fracturing due to noise and toxic fumes from fracked wells in their backyard. But the city faces an uphill battle—the U.S. fracking market was valued at $26 billion in 2013 according to BCC Research.

In Utah, where Excelyte is in somewhat of a pilot testing mode, oil field companies are not required to obtain specific government approval to use the product, but are required to report chemical usage in the national database FracFocus.

Despite Excelyte’s impressive properties and promising applications, environmentalists aren’t likely to be overly excited about the product.

“Even if all of the chemicals used for fracking were perfectly benign (and they are not), the wastes still would be highly toxic, because the fluids bring numerous hazardous substances, including radioactive materials, to the surface,” said Deborah Goldberg, an attorney at environmentalist group Earthjustice. “No one yet has found a way to dispose of all of the wastes without creating additional environmental risks.”

Though fracking is by no means a sustainable practice, it is projected to experience further growth well into 2018. If widely adopted, the use of Excelyte could save lives and save water in various processes.

Excelyte has been approved by the National Science Foundation (NSF), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use in food production; healthcare; veterinary practices; and the oil and gas industry.

The EPA declined to comment on the solution’s current or projected use in fracking activities.

The solution’s applications in reusing and recycling water would be of particular interest to West Coast states like Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and California, which have been facing a longstanding drought.

Study Conducted by Carson Tahoe Health System Demonstrates Effectiveness of Excelyte™ for Infection Control in a Hospital Setting

LITTLE RIVER, S.C., June 25, 2014 – Integrated Environmental Technologies, Ltd. (OTC Bulletin Board: IEVM) today announced that Carson Tahoe Health System has published the results of Carson Tahoe’s independent study testing the effectiveness of Excelyte™ in reducing the amount of bacteria present in a hospital setting. The study focused on “high-touch” areas where large numbers of patients and workers face the potential of acquiring and spreading hospital-acquired infections. Of the 54 high-touch sites cultured post standard cleaning, residual bacteria was found in 85 percent of the cultures, as compared to 31 percent of the cultures post Excelyte cleaning. The report also highlights Excelyte’s non-toxic properties, which do not corrode hospital equipment like more commonly used chemicals, and that Excelyte is as much as 100 times more effective at disinfection than traditional chemicals, such as bleach. The study was conducted and the report was written by Dorris Dimmit, MPH, an epidemiologist at Carson Tahoe Health System who is a certified infection preventionist.

David R. LaVance, IET’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our EcoTreatments™ products continue to gain traction in the energy and healthcare markets, leading to extensive research and evaluation by both the public and private sectors. We are pleased to share the impressive results of the independent study recently conducted by the Carson Tahoe Health System whereby Excelyte was used in a hospital setting to reduce the presence of potentially deadly bacteria. Previous research has shown Excelyte to be an effective killer of some of the most dangerous threats, including CRE, MRSA and C. diff. Every year, more than two million Americans are infected by drug-resistant bacteria, leading to as many as 23,000 deaths. As the threat from superbugs grows, Excelyte provides an effective, non-toxic alternative for healthcare systems to reduce hospital-acquired infections.”

Company Begins Treating Natural Gas Production Wells

LITTLE RIVER, S.C., May 6, 2014 – Integrated Environmental Technologies, Ltd. (OTCBB: IEVM) today announced that it has commenced down-hole well maintenance of natural gas wells for a new customer in the Uinta Basin in Utah using the Company’s flagship Excelyte™ product. These down-hole operations consist of treating natural gas production wells that contain hydrogen sulfide, which is a toxic and corrosive chemical that frequently appears in oil and gas production. Excelyte acts as a hydrogen sulfide scavenger and as a biocide that kills sulfur-reducing bacteria, which are known to produce hydrogen sulfide. The company has successfully treated two wells, reducing the amount of hydrogen sulfide in each of the producing wells to a level significantly better than accepted industry standards for safe well operations. The company expects to continue treating those two wells, as well as commencing treatment on approximately 150 other gas producing wells that the customer operates in the Uinta Basin.

David R. LaVance, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am very pleased that we have gained a new customer and commenced down-hole well maintenance treatments of gas wells. I believe that this application, along with the treatment of water used in hydraulic fracturing, represents a $50 million market opportunity for us in the Uinta Basin and potentially a $2.5 billion market opportunity in the United States. I am pleased to see Excelyte successfully address two large problems in gas production wells in an eco-friendly manner: elimination of bacteria and reduction of hydrogen sulfide. In the month of May, we expect three additional companies to conduct down-hole applications in Uinta Basin – the initial test market IET is using to demonstrate the product’s efficacy in addressing complex geological issues underground.”

Since gaining EPA approval, Excelyte has been used by select companies to treat processed water. The Uinta Basin was identified as the starting point for operations due to two significant problems in the region’s existing wells: persistence of bacteria and a proliferation of hydrogen sulfide in the wells. Excelyte is an eco-friendly solution used to disinfect water utilized in hydraulic fracturing and well maintenance and to prevent groundwater contamination by killing bacteria and viruses. It also enables energy producers to reuse as much as 20% of the significant quantities of water used in the fracking process.

Company Continues to Make Progress in Western U.S.

LITTLE RIVER, S.C., April 10, 2014 – Integrated Environmental Technologies, Ltd. (OTCBB: IEVM) today released the following statement from President and Chief Executive Officer David R. LaVance:

“In the last few months, the company has made steady progress with its market strategy for our EcoTreatments™ products, specifically in the energy industry. The expansion of the oil and gas industry in western states offers the most significant opportunity for us right now, particularly in the state of Utah. Support for smart technologies and new methods for drilling and water processing has grown in the first quarter of 2014, in large part due to the ongoing drought conditions and threats to the nation’s water supply. In a column for The Huffington Post, I shared my thoughts on some of the pressing issues and possible solutions for the water crisis.

We have been briefing local and state officials at the highest levels on our unique Excelyte™ product and have discussed with them the need to embrace a new approach to public-private partnerships to protect the environment. The conversations have been positive and reinforce our belief that clean, non-toxic biocides will soon become a standard in well maintenance and oil and gas production. Our team continues to work on creating additional avenues to expand the market’s awareness as to the benefits of using Excelyte as a biocide in oil and gas applications.

In the past quarter, IET has worked with exploration and production companies in Utah operating in the Uinta Basin to determine the efficacy of Excelyte in well maintenance applications and in the treatment of processed water. In the Uinta Basin, those companies have identified two significant problems in existing wells: persistence of bacteria and a proliferation of hydrogen sulfide. We estimate that there are approximately 5,000 additional wells in the Uinta Basin that would benefit from the regular use of Excelyte as part of a well maintenance program.

IET estimates the market potential for a combination biocide and hydrogen sulfide scavenger used in well maintenance, well drilling and oil and gas production applications to exceed $50 million annually in Utah alone, and nationwide potential that could exceed $2.5 billion annually. The growing concerns for conservation of water are causing oilfield operations to recycle water rather than to source new water for well drilling and oil and gas production operations. This practice has a tendency to lead to cross-contamination of wells with bacteria – which may increase the presence of bacteria and hydrogen sulfide, creating a large opportunity for a non-toxic, effective biocide and hydrogen sulfide scavenger such as Excelyte that can minimize any cross-contamination issues related to bacteria.”

Hospital Disinfectant Gaining Ground as Oil & Gas Water Treatment Solution

As covered by www.rigzone.com

A chemical product designed to kill bacteria in hospitals is gaining traction in the oil and gas industry as a solution for treating hydraulic fracturing water.

Excelyte, which has been successfully tested on flowback water from the Piceance and Marcellus shale basins, is being tested in eastern Utah’s Uintah Basin for use in hydraulic fracturing, well maintenance and treatment of flowback water, said Integrated Environmental Technologies (IET) CEO David LaVance in an interview with Rigzone.

The water treatment solution is similar to bleach in the sense that chlorine is the active ingredient, but unlike bleach, which is caustic with a high alkaline content, Excelyte is Ph-neutral and benign to humans. However, the product is deadly to aerobic and anaerobic bacteria in water used in hydraulic fracturing. Excelyte is also effective in killing viruses, and the product has yet been tested on a bacteria it couldn’t kill, including anthrax, said LaVance. Excelyte also is non-toxic and undetectable 90 days after use.

Hypochlorous acid, the main active ingredient in Excelyte, has been known for decades as an effective biocide, first being identified as one of the agents used in the body to kill pathogens such as bacteria and viruses in the body. The chlorine part of the molecule is primarily responsible for the biocidal action, with the remainder of the molecule acting as an oxidizing agent, which has a high affinity for the sulfur in hydrogen sulfide. The sulfur precipitates out of the solution as it oxidizes.

IET has devised a method to manufacture the product efficiently and reliably, so it can be used in many applications, ranging from hospital disinfection and food processing to use in oil and gas.

“We did not have the useful product until we determined how to make the product in a Ph-neutral way,” said LaVance.

Excelyte is ideal in that it will not impact the effectiveness of hydraulic fracturing fluid or proppants, said LaVance. It also is not corrosive to machinery, and is effective in removing deadly hydrogen sulfide.

The company was established a decade ago to develop Excelyte, originally intended for use in hospitals. The product’s effectiveness in killing bacteria in hospital settings and on fruits and vegetables eventually led to the product’s migration into oil and gas, LaVance explained. The product now has approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for use in hospital disinfection, food processing, veterinary practices and oil and gas.

Benchmark Performance Group held the license for several years, and did its own testing, along with introducing the product to other companies, primarily for hydraulic fracturing. Yates Petroleum was one of the original users of the producer for well maintenance. IET is working with about 10 companies in the oil and gas market, either in testing or in use.

The impact of hydraulic fracturing on water resources in terms of supply consumption and water quality has led to interest in a water treatment solution effective in killing bacteria without leaving toxic remains over a long period of time. Control of bacterial growth often is accomplished using biocides such as glutaraldehyde, particularly in multi-stage, high-volume hydraulic fracturing of shale, according to a case study presented at the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ International Symposium on Oilfield Chemistry in 2011.

A study of Excelyte’s use in the Marcellus shale play indicates that it does not persist in flowback water beyond a few days, and that the bacteria count stays at less than 10 cells/mL for up to 81 days after Excelyte’s application to slickwater fluid. The company has successfully deployed Excelyte on the Barnett, Haynesville, and Granite Wash shale regions following its initial deployment in the Marcellus, according to the paper.

Excelyte™ VET Approved for Use as a Disinfectant in Veterinary Clinics, Hospitals, Kennels and Animal Life Facilities

LITTLE RIVER, S.C., March 26, 2014 – Integrated Environmental Technologies Ltd. (OTCBB: IEVM), announced today that it received approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to market a new Excelyte™ product called Excelyte VET – which can be used to prevent Canine distemper. Canine distemper is highly contagious, resistant to most disinfectants, and is the leading cause of infectious disease deaths in dogs worldwide.

The new product registration (EPA Registration #82341-4) also allows the company to market Excelyte VET to prevent the spread of Canine parvovirus and Bordetella bronchiseptica.

Canine distemper and Canine parvoviruses affect respiratory tracks and gastrointestinal and central nervous systems of dogs, causing vomiting, diarrhea and symptoms of encephalitis in the brain during later stages. Bordetella bronchiseptica bacteria, commonly known as “kennel cough”, severely affect the respiratory tracts of dogs and cats. Secondary infections and complications are common with each affliction, partly attributable to the immunosuppressive effects of the bacteria and viruses.

In collaboration with an independent third party, Integrated Environmental Technologies conducted the required testing at an independent EPA approved laboratory, the results of which showed that Excelyte VET was effective as a disinfection/antimicrobial product for use on non- porous hard surfaces in veterinary clinics and hospitals, kennels and animal life science facilities. Derived from naturally occurring salt minerals and water, Excelyte VET provides an environmentally responsible alternative product for use around dogs, cats and other animals. Because of its non-toxic nature, a facility that utilizes Excelyte VET can more efficiently disinfect the facility since Excelyte VET will not harm the animals located in the facility, as is the case with other toxic disinfectants commonly used.

David R. LaVance, President and Chief Executive Officer of Integrated Environmental Technologies, commented: “Excelyte VET is the newest offering under our EcoTreatmentsTM umbrella. There are more than 120,000 veterinary practices, hospitals and animal shelters in the United States that can greatly benefit from an effective, non-toxic solution. With the registration approval of Excelyte VET, we now have two EPA product registrations, with a combined total of sixteen kill claims, further establishing us as a leader in developing anolyte disinfecting solution produced through electrochemical activation.”

LATHAM, N.Y. — David R. LaVance, president and CEO of Integrated Environmental Technologies, is an expert in hydraulic fracturing and what it takes to disinfect many types of wastewater, including fracking wastewater.

IET has created a product called Excelyte™ for disinfecting large quantities of water from hydraulic fracturing sites.

Water Technology caught up with LaVance to discuss the issue of hydraulic fracturing in the United States today, why it is so controversial, the issues with fracking wastewater and how those issues can be resolved.

“The controversy centers on the idea that while we need fracking…at the same time, the method that’s deployed is one where we use a lot of water,” said LaVance. “The concern is that the water will eventually leak into the water tables.”

Added LaVance, “Everyone has this interest, in fact we have both interests: We have interests in obtaining the energy and we have interest in protecting our water supply. So the controversy is how do we do it, and are the chemicals currently being used in the fracking process toxic or dangerous to the environment. And that’s a legitimate controversy.”

Company to Market its Products, Including its Excelyte™ and EcaFlo™ Products, Under the EcoTreatments™ Brand Name

LITTLE RIVER, S.C., March 6, 2014

Integrated Environmental Technologies, Ltd. (“IET” or the “Company”) (OTC Bulletin Board: IEVM), announced today the launch of a new brand name, EcoTreatments™, which it will utilize in selling all of its products. The Company’s Excelyte™ solutions and EcoFlo™ equipment will now be marketed under the EcoTreatments™ umbrella. As the first step in this new marketing initiative, the Company has launched its digital presence with a new corporate and product website at www.ecotreatments.com, and social media presence at Facebook, Twitter and Linked In. This new website replaces our old websites www.ietltd.net and www.ietecaflo.com.

The Company’s signature EcoTreatments™ product is Excelyte™ – a non-toxic, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved disinfectant produced from hypochlorous acid, a naturally-occurring molecule synthesized to have a 99.9999% kill rate of bacteria and viruses. There are three primary, eco-friendly uses for Excelyte™:

  • Reduce fracking pollution: Fracking is controversial but there’s no debating the fact that it’s expanding every day. There are approximately 20,000 new wells fracked every year. Regardless of which political party is running Washington, D.C., that’s not changing anytime soon. That said, the best thing to do for the environment is perfect the process through smart technology. Excelyte™ effectively disinfects the water in the fracking process and helps prevent groundwater contamination. Unlike any other fracking solution, Excelyte™ cleans and protects oil equipment from corrosion, creates a safer work environment by targeting and eliminating hydrogen sulfide (a leading cause of gas inhalation deaths among oil/gas workers), leaves no lasting impact on the environment and is undetectable 90 days after use.
  • Eradicate hospital bacterial outbreaks: Superbugs and treatment-resistant bacteria have been spreading across the nation. The average hospital struggles with 348 cases of hospital-acquired infection every year. Excelyte™ addresses this growing issue by not only killing the bacteria present, but also eliminating the possibility of mutation that leads to resistance. The EPA has classified Excelyte™ as a tuberculocidal hospital disinfectant effective against MRSA, Pseudomonas, HIV, H1N1, Salmonella, E. coli, Klebsiella, Listeria, VRE and C. diff spores on contaminated, hard, non-porous surfaces.
  • Protect America’s food supply from causing illness: The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 in 6 American get sick from foodborne illnesses every year. Bacteria and other pathogens in food production can be controlled through the use of Excelyte™ to disinfect and sanitize meat, poultry, vegetable and diary production facilities as well as food preparation areas and equipment. Excelyte™, in ice form, can also be used to pack fresh foods and extend the shelf life of meats, seafood and vegetables.

David R. LaVance, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented “EcoTreatments™ is a name that represents the environmental benefits our products can have in a variety of complex and critical industries. We have been developing products like Excelyte™ for more than a decade to enhance the safety and quality of America’s water through smart, non-toxic and biodegradable solutions. The new direction helps separate our environmentally-friendly offerings from competitors that don’t meet the standards our healthcare system and energy industry demand. The Company’s new branded marketing efforts and the re-design of our corporate website will communicate our value proposition in the marketplace to our customers, partners and investors.”
