OriginClear Spanish Licensee Signs Multi-Year Commercial Swine Manure Treatment Contract
OriginClear licensee Depuporc S.L. to build complete systems powered by OriginClear Technology
Los Angeles, CA – 2 March, 2018 – OriginClear Inc. (OTC/QB: OCLN), a leading provider of water treatment solutions, today announced that its licensee in Spain, Depuporc S.L., has signed a commercial contract to supply complete mobile treatment systems to pig farm operators. The units have a daily capacity of 120m3, or 31,700 gallons per day. Depuporc intends to integrate OriginClear’s breakthrough Electro Water Separation™ with Advanced Oxidation (EWS:AOx™) technology in the systems it deploys.
The contract outlines orders beginning with 12 machines in the first year, tripling to 36 units by the third year. Between component sales and royalties, OriginClear believes that this project will generate about half a million dollars in the first year, also tripling by year three.

“We licensed the OriginClear technology to optimize and improve the patented manure treatment process that we have developed over the past years, said Francisco Longares, CEO of Depuporc SL. “We did several tests with various animal farming effluents, including one particularly successful test that our team published on video, and this confirmed our opinion of EWS:AOx. We are extremely happy to see that our efforts are now materializing into commercial results.”
OriginClear’s EWS:AOx will form the core of a complete mobile system designed and built by Depuporc in Spain. Large solids will be removed before EWS:AOx, with a polishing stage afterwards, to ensure discharge water quality will meet stringent European Union water quality standards.
“The Spanish market is undoubtedly huge and as such, a first commercial implementation has tremendous value to us,” said Jean-Louis “JL” Kindler, President of OriginClear Technologies. “In addition, a success there will set an example for other major markets in the animal effluent industry, namely the US and China, where we are already present and active.”
With over 28 million animals, Spain is now the world’s third largest pork meat exporter after China and the U.S. Furthermore, increased industrialization has seen the average number of animals per farm nearly quadruple, from 122 to 467, in less than 15 years. This also concentrates the production of manure in Spain, which is currently estimated at 62 million cubic meters per year. This is equivalent to covering the whole area of New York’s Central Park in manure, to the height of a five-floor building (17 meters or 55 feet).
