Intellectual Property

Summary 

EthicalChem has an established, strong intellectual property position in chemical solutions and technology processes within the environmental and oil production industries. The Company holds eleven patents worldwide and has extensive application filings for pending patents to ensure its intellectual property rights are protected for new and in-development products and processes in the following technology areas: 

 

  • Use of surfactants with oxidants for:

    • soil remediation, for both simultaneous and sequential application of surfactants and oxidants

    • remediation of oil spills in water environments

    • enhanced extraction of non-aqueous phase liquids  

    • enhanced extraction of crude oil

  • Laboratory processes to test, evaluate and select surfactants and oxidants for use in soil

  • Laboratory processes to select the mass of surfactant and oxidant for use in soil

  • Storage stable oxidant surfactant solutions

  • Compositions and methods for filter cake removal

  • Synthesizing and using compositions of polymer-coated metal nanoparticles formed by green chemistry synthetic techniques

  • Viscosity reduction of heavy oils by non-hazardous plant based solvents
