Eco-friendly Biocide for Oil and Gas Industry

Eco-friendly Biocide for Oil and Gas Industry

Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL) is the most effective and environmentally friendly solution to disinfect fracking water and prevent groundwater contamination. It is a powerful oxidizing agent that destroys pathogens on contact. When it degrades, it turns back to a saline solution of salt and water.
HOCL is a safe disinfectant agent that effectively controls contamination of viral, bacterial and fungal transmission. It is a powerful oxidizing agent. In aqueous solution, it dissociates into H+ and OCl, denaturing and aggregating proteins. HOCL also destroys pathogens by chlorination, by forming chloramines and nitrogen-centered radicals. This results in single and double-stranded DNA breaks, rendering the nucleic acid useless, and the virus harmless. 
Many properties contribute to why HOCL may be the solution of choice for the oil and gas industry:
  • Easy-to-use biocide that has multiple applications
  • Prevents and removes biofilm, scale and slime build up
  • Disinfects fracking water and prevents groundwater contamination
  • Neutralizes hydrogen sulfide
  • Effective in controlling Sulfate Reducing Bacteria (SRB)
  • 100% natural and safe to use around people and animals without PPE
  • Non-toxic and non-corrosive and non-combustible
  • Broad range of bactericidal and virucidal effects
  • Lower operating costs - Produce on-site with an anolyte generator
