The Voraxial® Separator was originally designed in the aftermath of the Valdez Oil Spill in 1989. Unfortunately once again, the lack for readily deployable oil spill response vessels and equipment became painfully aware to the public at large after the explosion and subsequent sinking of the Deepwater Horizon platform in late April 2010, which resulted in an estimated 4.9 million barrels of oil spilling into the Gulf.
At the behest of countless numbers of the company's investors who had forwarded the challenge information to the company we overwhelmingly agreed to sign up. We at EVTN are confident in our technology and believe that the Voraxial® Separator is a strong contender in this competition.
