Rivertop launches glucaric-based water treatment ingredients

Rivertop Renewables, a Montana-based novel chemicals company, launched Waterline™ corrosion inhibitors and chelating agents, a new family of cost-effective, high performance and sustainable chemicals designed to be integrated with products in the water treatment industry. The new products are high performance, low-cost alternatives to phosphate-based options in water treatment formulations.

According to Rivertop Renewables, the replacement of phosphorus and heavy metal based ingredients is an ongoing challenge across multiple industries that use large volumes of process and cooling water in their operations, such as power generation, oil & gas, mining, metals, pulp & paper, and many others. Rivertop’s proprietary sugar acid technology platform offers—for the first time at commercial-scale — a range of versatile organic corrosion and scale inhibitors to help meet this challenge.

Waterline SI chelating agents help control and prevent hard water scale accumulation while Waterline CI corrosion inhibitors offer formulation flexibility as well as superior environmental performance compared to other corrosion inhibitors. The products are manufactured at commercial-scale in a plant operated by DTI in Danville, Virginia. Rivertop sells direct to water treatment service companies and plans to establish a network of resellers.
