The Vortex Compression Pump™ (VCP) is a powerful, cost-saving solution for mitigating many man-made and natural environmental problems, including severe disasters like floods in the Mississippi Basin and Delta; fracking and oil drilling in the farmlands of Oklahoma; and oil spills into the waters of the world—often in a fraction of the time it takes for the damage to occur.
Our distinguished team consists of experts in hydraulics, physics, engineering, and business management who are working together to replace harmful, 20th-century practices with the superior technology of the Vortex Compression Pump™. It’s a real-world solution for helping engineer safer, cleaner cities around the world, and for preventing or reducing damage caused by industrial practices that make possible the comfortable lifestyles we continue to take for granted and don’t want to give up.
The Vortex Compression Pump™ will be used to:
- provide clean water to people in regions of the world where it’s scarce,
- mitigate damage caused by industrial practices like fracking,
- desalinate saltwater,
- clean up industrial messes like oil spills,
- keep municipal wastewater systems free of clogs,
and more. We applaud and stand with lawmakers, NGOs, and others who are working tirelessly to eliminate environmental recklessness that’s poisoning the planet.
