Reduce Your Carbon Footprint With WellJet

Carbon-Footprint-1Unless your well is free-flowing artesian, it takes energy to pump water to the surface.

Producing that energy releases CO2 into the atmosphere, creating a carbon footprint.

Reducing the carbon footprint of water production helps the environment, reduces the load on the electrical grid, extends the lifespan of pumps and motors – and saves you money.

 WellJet (US Patent No. 8,312,930) is the world’s most advanced and effective method of water well development and rehabilitation.  An entirely green process utilizing only highly pressurized water delivered in a laminar flow through our proprietary technology, WellJet removes obstructions from 100% of the perforated area, and penetrates deep into the gravel pack to break up the harmful deposits that are the true cause of inadequate performance.

WellJet® helps increase flow, improve efficiency, lower pumping costs, and reduce the amount of energy required to deliver water.

How WellJet Helps Covered Entities Maximize Value from California’s Cap and Trade Program:

 By reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs) produced during the pumping of water wells, WellJet helps well owners – and the utilities that provide energy to them – fit under the declining cap of allowable GHG levels, thus minimizing the compliance costs of achieving AB32 goals.  It is an investment in clean technology that is good for your bottom line – and for the people and state of California.

WellJet has been approved as an Expert Preferred Vendor in the United Nations Water for Carbon Credits Program.
