EKS-DT reduces the demand on fresh water sources by increasing the water available for reuse and decreases the disturbed land footprint from tailings handling, storage, and disposal. To learn more, visit the Benefits of EKS-DT Process page.
EKS – Dewatering Technology process test results demonstrate clearly that the overall impact of EKS-DT will be to improve the long-term sustainability of Alberta’s oil sands industry. To learn more, visit the Benefits of EKS-DT Process page.
EKS has prepared a detailed quantitative life cycle analysis for its technology and used these results to compare its economic and environmental performance with other dewatering technologies. The EKS-DT process clearly out performs existing technologies. To learn more, visit the Benefits of EKS-DT Process page.
Ongoing EKS-DT process optimisation research is being conducted in collaboration with Western University.
EKS has developed a number of patented innovations that have resulted in major improvements in the capital and operating costs of the EKS-DT process as well as improvements in the performance of the dewatering process itself.
EKS is pleased to have been identified by Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) as a company that is helping to drive innovation in the oil sands industry. EKS is proud of the recognition the industry is giving it’s ElectroKinetic Solutions – Dewatering Technology (EKS-DT) and believe EKS-DT can help oil sand producers better manage oil sand tailings.
