Company Summary

We offer a low-cost/low-risk solution to the upgrading problem by enabling zero-emissions 100-100,000 bpd upgrading facilities, which require less than $2,000/bpd in capital and cost less than $2/bbl to operate. Instead of relying on high temperature to promote energetic molecular collisions QVI Hammer Technology™ creates high-velocity fluid streams that break chemical bonds (thus cracking long-chain hydrocarbons) at near-ambient conditions.
