Anionic Flocculant

A pre-activated, no make-down flocculant that reduces PAM by 80%, boosts flocs by 10x, streamlines operations, and lowers CAPEX, OPEX, and emissions.

Anionic chemistry for catatonic challenges.

SimpleFloc Anionic is a pre-activated, no-make down flocculant designed to remedy challenging water. Count on it to simplify  treatment, reduce emissions, and cut costs.

  • SimpleFloc is a product of the NanoNet platform, a proprietary library of molecular agents that can intelligently target and sequester particles in water and are a step change from commodity chemicals like PAM

How it works: SimpleFloc is delivered neat and plugs directly into your water treatment system. It requires no make-down.

  • Consistency: SimpleFloc’s pre-activated state enables it to deliver consistent dosing and avoid bad flocs that gum up bags, belts, presses, or centrifuges and lead to NPT or site shut-downs
  • CAPEX: The flocculant requires no make-down equipment, which helps reduce new CAPEX or extend existing investments
  • Data: SimpleFloc sites can use automated pumps that send data back to a monitoring dashboard for aggregation and analysis

It’s the chemistry: NanoNets reduce polyacrylamide by 80% and boost flocs by 10x. This has the obvious effect of cutting chemical costs, but also reduces risk of breaching limits in the operating envelope.

  • Chemical spend: SimpleFloc alters the throughput of water treatment, reducing cost-to-treat by up to 50%
  • Toxicity: NanoNets reduce PAM by up to 80%, ensuring crews won’t accidentally breach permit limits as they work to hit their KPIs
  • Emissions: NanoNet chemistry reduces Scope 3 Emissions up to 70%, a particularly valuable feature for fixed-address operations under regulatory scrutiny

It’s the math, too: Even if crews pump as much as 3x-4x more SimpleFloc into their system vs PAM, the financial outcome is the same: operators save money:

  • The reduction of chemical fees alone makes SimpleFloc competitive on a 4:1 basis
  • But the impact hits everywhere: lower CAPEX, more efficient crews, less HS&E incidents, fewer permit breaches, less NPT and site shut-downs
  • All told: switching to SimpleFloc leads to significant improvements to the P&L

Buckle-up: Safety is also a key feature of SimpleFloc. No make-down means crews aren’t exposed to toxic inhalants found in dry polymers, nor do they worry about slips and drops from messes associated with emulsion leaks and puddles.

  • Some operators report crews using SimpeFloc refuse competing offers from commodity operators given the efficiency and safety of the product.

The bottom line: Water insecurity is changing regulations, permits, and emission limits. Commodity chemicals like polyacrylamide—created 70 years ago for a different era of water treatment and rapidly aging out—aren’t up for the task at hand.

  • SimpleFloc and the NanoNet platform are designed for the era of water insecurity and offer operators reduced costs, improved efficiency, more regulatory flexibility, and a tighter bottom line.
“Within two hours of introducing CarboNet’s solution into the system, not only did the tanks start to clean up, with contaminants breaking loose from the walls, we were suddenly seeing stronger floc and our volumes went up to 85,000 barrels of water a day.“
Dave Williams, O&G Operator


SimpleFloc Anionic significantly outperforms commodity flocculants in both obvious and non-obvious ways.

SimpleFloc’s pre-activated, made-down state faces no rate-limiting on speed of reaction compared with dry, emulsion, and solution polymers that must reckon with improper aging, variable water temperature, and dozens of other factors that impact performance.


SimpleFloc Anionic is a negatively charged flocculant ideal for wastewater with positively charged particles. These are often inorganic materials like clays, silts, or certain types of industrial effluents.
