Water Cleaning Technology and Energy Saving Portfolio

Strategic Solutions Integrated, Inc (SSI) has a team of personnel who keenly understands the needs of providing clean water technology for a multitude of challenges facing planet earth. We work to assist in the application of uniquely designed water technology to cheaply address multiple verticals impacting clean water and seek to find innovative and disruptive technologies in the clean water and engery sectors.

Water Technologies

Strategic Solutions Integrated, Inc. developed a portfolio of water cleaning capability that addresses water challenges facing the planet. Some of the greatest challenges stem from the inability to provide agile access to water sources that require cleaning. We are addressing this challenge through mobile systems that are capable of operating in more than ninety percent of locations around the world.


PFAS-Clear Sys​tem

SSI’s PFAS-Clear mobile system reduces poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in AFFF to non-detectable levels at the customer's location.  


PFAS is a primary component of AFFF (Aqueous Film-Forming Foam), which is a firefighting foam that quickly extinguishes fuel fires on ships and aircraft.  Two members of the PFAS family, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) are under review for potential harm to humans in amounts greater than 70 parts per trillion (ppt).  Both PFOA and PFOS are in the news for contaminating ground water.   AFFF is used as part of fire suppression systems and in emergency responses at chemical plants, oil refineries and rigs, and notably in aviation operations. AFFF works by quickly spreading out over the surface of the fuel, depriving the fire of oxygen, quickly extinguishing even large fires. The foam also prevents the hot fuel from reigniting. Currently,  AFFF that contains fluorine chemicals are used to put out dangerous fuel fires quickly and keep them out.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the health advisory levels at 70 ppt for PFOA and PFOS. No levels have been determined for other PFAS substances at this time.


The DOD has recently instituted numerous policies designed to limit or eliminate all incidental discharge of AFFF and is in the process of replacing AFFF from current storage vessels with a similar flourine molecule structure ( replacing 8-chain molecule with 6-chain molecule).  Research is underway to replace the flourine molecule structure with a safe substitute; however, this will take many years. 


Because high concentration levels of PFOA and PFOS molecules are in the AFFF,  Department of Defense (DOD) facilities and State and Local Firefighting operations collect AFFF and store it for later destruction. The destruction process is time consuming, expensive, and requires transport of hazardous materials (HAZMAT) on local roadways.


PFAS-Clear reduces all PFAS substances in the clear water effluent to non-detectable levels.  It also removes many heavy metal, organic, and inorganic contaminates to below the Maximum Contamination Level (MCL) established by the EPA for drinking water.  The total volume of the AFFF rinsate is reduced by 90 to 98 percent making hazmat handling of the waste (2-10 percent of original volume) much easier and affordable. 


The PFAS-Clear system is comprised of a proprietary system of components designed by SSI to treat the water. The current mobile, demonstration system is designed to treat up to 14,000 gallons per day and is scalable allowing for larger projects to be treated.  Mobile systems designed to clean up to 72,000 gallons per day are under development. The process is environmentally safe and provides a solution to current high cost methods of disposing AFFF.      

  



High Pressure Reverse Osmosis (HERO)™ filter

Highly Efficient Reverse Osmosis (HERO)™ Sys​tem

SSI is developing the Highly Efficient Reverse Osmosis (HERO)™ system which is a new type of film used for reverse osmosis filter systems and is designed to replace almost 50-year-old technology that are represented by billions of filters worldwide.
  • The HERO™ filters can be retrofitted into existing systems, which means that there will be very little capital expense involved in transitioning to the new film.
  • The technology is based on an alternative chemistry to the polyamide chemistry used in traditional reverse osmosis systems.
  • The operating pressure required to desalinate seawater is reduced from approximately 600 psi to less than 400 psi.
  • The electrical operating cost to power the pumps for desalination or other filtration requirements is reduced proportionally with the reduction in operating pressure.
  • A 33% reduction in operating pressure translates to a 33% reduction in electrical costs to operate the system.


The HYDAC™ system

Hydrodynamic Activation & Cavitation (HYDAC)™ System

SSI’s fixed and mobile proprietary HYDAC™ technology works on the principals of hydrodynamic cavitation using an orifice to restrict fluid flow to create a pressure drop in the fluid downstream of the orifice resulting in short-lived microbubbles. When the microbubbles collapse, they induce temperatures that can reach up to 10,000 K, which cause chemicals, heavy metals, and biologicals to be denatured and rendered inert. The insoluble salts precipitate out and are removed. The HYDAC™ eliminates a high percentage of heavy metals, viruses, and all biologicals.  The system is combined with a specialized ionizer that further reduces biologicals. 

The HYDAC  provides:

  • 95% removal of Heavy Metals of Concern
  • 100% of Biologicals
  • 100% Degassing


The HumP3

The Human Powered Pump (HumP3)™

SSI works with North American Recycling Technologies to bring the the Human Powered Pump Purifier (HumP3)™.  The HumP3™ is a double reciprocating device which uses the force of gravity to assist a person to pump thousands of gallons of water a day with very little effort. Simply stated, “no power source other than human power is required”. This system can be operated by a child or small adult and produce 24k gallons per day (GPD) or 1000 gallons per hour.

  • The system uses a swinging pendulum, which makes it much easier to pump water manually from any source of water or wells to 100 feet.
  • The HumP3™ will be combined with the HERO™ or CeraPur™ system to provide ultra-pure, potable water at little or no costs
  • The general-purpose pump is specifically designed to pump surface water by suctioning and can lift water up to 100 feet from a water source to the pump.
  • This pump is very durable, easy to maintain and can be set up and operate near a river, creek, pond, lake or any flooded area within about one hour.
  • In addition to treating virtually any type of contaminated water source, the machine can also be set to bypass all filters when it is needed to pump out a cistern or flooded area or for irrigation or sanitation needs.
  • There are four different pressure settings that can be selected depending on the desire of the operator. Changing from one setting to another is easy and takes only a few seconds.
  • The HumP3™ has the option of being operated with power, if desired.
  • The HumP3™ comes in three sizes to accommodate a range of needs by the customer: small (100 GPD), Medium (1,000 GPD), and Large (24,000 GPD). Larger systems require special order.

Energy Saving Technologies

SSI considers the total picture when addressing challenges to a community.  Water is only one aspect of the challenge.  Ability to provide energy savings for the customer is also important.  Although there are significant energy savings with the above water systems, SSI directly targets what drives energy efficiency and consumption in today's industrial, commercial, and residential sectors. 


Phase Change Material

ENRG Blanket

Bio Phase Change Material (BioPCM)®

BioPCM® harnesses the power of phase change materials (PCM) to improve energy efficiency and thermal storage solutions.

BioPCM® is

  • A phase change material made from sustainably grown, all natural, food-based grade vegetable oils.
