Innovation at the Core

CVW CleanTech’s vision is to utilize innovative technology to recover valuable commodities in a sustainable manner that helps accelerate the world’s move to net zero.

At the heart of CVW CleanTech’s success is a relentless pursuit of innovation. Their technology intercepts oil sands tailings before they are discharged into ponds, remediating them while efficiently recovering valuable resources. This includes pioneering approaches like low solvent loading, intra-phase recycling, differential underflow operation, and vapor-liquid equilibrium. These innovations drive substantial resource recovery while significantly reducing emissions, particularly methane.

CVW CleanTech’s innovative end-of-pipe technology revolutionizes oil sands operations by remediating tailings and recovering valuable resources. The annual economic, environmental and operational benefits for a typical project incorporating CVWTM technology:

~ 2.2 MMbbl of Hydrocarbons (bitumen and solvent) removal

243 kt of critical minerals recovered (Titanium and Zircon)

380+kt of CO2 emissions abatement

1.9 MMGJ of indirect heat captured

19 Ha reduction of land use impacts

2.8 MMm³ of water recovered and re-used
