ABOUT RHST INDUSTRIES

The extraction and production of hydrocarbons is similar to other manufacturing processes, it is not 100% efficient. Inefficiencies create waste. In the oil & gas industry, processing waste is expensive. It must be carefully handled and disposed of properly.

RHST Industries and its clean technology can reduce the cost of managing oil waste. Our technology can recover the residual hydrocarbons in the waste stream, creating incremental value and making the remaining material cleaner and less costly to manage. We are redefining oil waste processes.

TECHNOLOGY

The Re-usable Hydrocarbon Sorbent (RHS) technology may appear simple, but it took many years of development to optimize the proprietary formula. Round in shape, light as popcorn and about 7mm in diameter, it is very unassuming.

The RHS technology has the ability to retain hydrocarbons and repel water. This reaction requires no catalyst or chemical additives, and only a simple process to recover the hydrocarbons from solids or water. In this way, our technology is an  effective medium to remove hydrocarbons from water or solids with  little energy 

Oleophilic

Attracts and retains hydrocarbons to the RHS bead surface

Hydrophobic

Repels water from the RHS bead surface

Re-usable

Re-usable in excess of 1,500 cycles while maintaining consistent performance

 
 

The RHS technology is a versatile tool that can be used in the removal of hydrocarbons from waste streams. The following are examples of material streams with which we we have extensive experience.

MIDSTREAM - LIGHT OIL WASTE

Average oil content in solids: Before 15% – After 3.5%
Average solid content: Before: 9.7%
Average oil reduction in solids: 88%

UPSTREAM - HEAVY OIL WASTE

Average oil content in solids: Before 20% – After 0.4%
Average solid content: Before: 68%
Average oil reduction in solids: 98%

OIL SANDS - MATURE FINE TAILINGS

Average oil content in solids: Before 3% – After 0.3%
Average solid content: Before: 32%
Average oil reduction in solids: 67%

OIL SANDS - LOW GRADE ORES

Average oil content in solids: Before 6.8% – After 0.3%

Average solid content: Before: 81%

Average oil reduction in solids: 84%

APPLICATIONS

 

FACILITIES

RHS Production Facilities

The Re-usable Hydrocarbon Sorbent (RHS) technology is produced at our in-house facility.

Pilot Facility

The pilot facility is located in the heart of the Montreal-East petrochemical refinery district. It serves as a research and development site for advanced testing and process improvements for the use of the RHS technology.
