Advancing Global Environmental Solutions



"In the presence of a technology that efficiently & effectively removes liabilities and valuable, non-renewable resources from a waste stream, at a PROFT, should we engage all efforts to implement that technology?". The more important question may be, "Why wouldn't we?"


AGES’ break-through thermal technology sets the gold standard in waste remediation. Our technology is designed to remove organic and chemical contaminates from industrial and Oil & Gas waste streams and recapture hydrocarbons into a re-usable BS&W-grade oil product that are otherwise destine for landfills.


The final processed solids meet Tier I criteria for soils approved for use by Environment Canada (metal contamination not withstanding) or Class II, non-hazardous disposal. The environmental benefits of AGES' technology includes reduced energy use, decreased incineration of product & associated emissions, reduced volume to landfill, significant improvement from Class I (hazardous) disposal to Class II (non-hazardous) disposal as well as vast reduction in transportation costs & associated liability.


AGES has created a leading-edge, disruptive thermal technology that deals with waste head on. Providing a niche, unrealized revenue stream due to the recovery of the valued hydrocarbon and dramatically reducing the contamination in the waste streams while addressing present and future environmental concerns and associated liabilities.

- No / Reduced Fugitive Emissions

- Up to 30% reduced GHG production

- Up to 99.5% Recaptured Hydrocarbon & Recovered Revenue

- Removal of toxic contaminants, such as BTEX, from the waste stream

The AGES Promise
AGES Thermal Processing Corporation is focused on commercializing its patented, environmentally-friendly, low-temperature thermal remediation technology.

Our patented technology enables us to safely remove liability, costs and contaminants while creating a niche oil revenue with enhanced environmental and public approval.


This is our promise.

  • Zero Fugitive Emissions

  • Effective Hydrocarbon Remediation & Recovery of up to 99+%

  • BS&W Grade Oil Product Recapture

  • Design capacity scalable upwards of 10 tonnes per hour. (Parallel thermal trains can be added to further increase throughput)

  • Moisture content handling of up to 20% by weight; with front end dewatering process available

  • Reliable and Consistent Operation; minimized down time due to robust industrial-grade equipment

  • Treated Waste able to satisfy the Canadian Soil Quality Guideline for Agricultural Land Use*

  • Substantial Waste Management & Transportation Cost Reduction

  • Mitigation of Waste Associated Liability

  • Modular and Portable Skid Designs available to minimize environmental footprint

*Please Note: All above statements represent optimum effectiveness. Results are dependent upon hydrocarbon content and grade, as well as waste stream.

*For hydrocarbons with, and suitable for, in-situ disposal (metal content notwithstanding)

Nov 2019 UPDATE:
SAGD Centrifuge Paste

1. SAGD Paste in feed hopper awaiting process

2. SAGD Paste solids after processing

3. SAGD Paste solids (Left-Low temp) (Right-High Temp)

4. SAGD Paste solids exiting outlet plug auger into collection bin

Goal of processing was to remove BTEX (Benzene / Toluene / Ethylbenzene / Xylene) contamination from waste stream for Class II disposal.

  • Benzene & Toluene in raw waste stream exceeded guideline (highlighted box - see results)

  • BTEX residual in processed solids (low & high temp) was not measurable (less than 0.005 mg/L) – HUGE SUCCESS!!

Additional Successes:

  • Hydrocarbon in SAGD paste was recaptured for reuse – revenue stream

  • Processed solids handling was greatly increased over raw SAGD paste

June 2019 UPDATE:
Successful processing
 Drill Cuttings & HydroVac Waste

Above is the video of the thermal remediation unit while processing (note: minimal noise).  This clean technology is able to effectively and efficiently distill hydrocarbon from the waste stream and recapture the hydrocarbon in liquid for reuse.  This video begins at the feed auger and continues to the processed dry solids waste bin and finally to the surge (production) tank for the hydrocarbon sample.

Brief summary of drill cutting results from samples sent to Maxxam Labs (June 2019):

  • Hydrocarbon content in raw waste stream was 20.3% (5.0% H2O)

  • Hydrocarbon residual in processed dry solids was 0.1%

  • BS&W of recaptured hydrocarbon was 0.2 BS&W

Prior to processing, hydrovac waste bench-tested at ~45% by weight H2O and negligible hydrocarbon. 

Whats next?  Processing of centrifuge waste from SAGD operations.  This waste provides a valuable hydrocarbon content and a current challenge in handling & storage.  Results to follow...
