Using the Environment America Research &amp; Policy Center’s&nbsp;<a href=""https://environmentamerica.org/center/resources/get-the-lead-out/"" target=""_blank"" rel=""noopener"">‘Get the Lead Out’ report</a>&nbsp;as an example, he shares insights on the majority of America’s low-grade initiatives to protect its children’s drinking water in schools.</p> <p>“These ratings are judged on five criteria, and what it boils down to is that those states with D and F grades aren’t doing enough to fix the problem,” he says. Some states have implemented regulations, but others have not. “It’s a scandal and this problem will not get better unless we do something about it.”<!--more--></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href=""https://www.wateronline.com/doc/the-dangers-of-lead-poisoning-in-schools-and-how-we-can-fix-the-nationwide-problem-0001"" rel=""noopener"" target=""_blank""><img src=""https://4822820.fs1.hubspotusercontent-na1.net/hubfs/4822820/images/2023%20Website%20images/2023%20News/srinking%20fountain.jpg"" alt=""srinking fountain"" width=""1280"" height=""720"" loading=""lazy"" style=""height: auto; max-width: 100%; width: 1280px;""></a></p> <br> <p>While concerns around the country persist, so do the posing health risks for those with exposure to the medal<em>. “</em>Lead exposure is bad for everyone, and it’s especially dangerous for young children and babies. Not only are they much smaller and therefore affected by smaller amounts of lead, but they are also at crucial developmental stages, explains Eckelberry<em>.&nbsp;</em></p> <p><a href=""https://www.epa.gov/ground-water-and-drinking-water/basic-information-about-lead-drinking-water"" target=""_blank"" rel=""noopener"">According to the U.S. EPA</a>, there is no safe level of lead in a child’s blood, putting them at a greater risk for harm as they continue to grow. “Learning and behavior issues, nervous system issues, slowed growth, and even lowered IQ has been linked to even small amounts of lead exposure,” he adds. For that reason, the demand for policymakers to improve the country’s growing water crisis is imperative to protecting our future.</p> <p>On top of industry and agriculture overwhelming central systems, America’s socioeconomic disparities in water also play a role in the well-being of its children as marginalized communities struggle to get the water quality they deserve. “The big, central network of water infrastructure has been neglected since 1961, and it’s routinely underfunded.</p> <p>This disproportionately harms the least wealthy communities that are at the end of the line, which is why we see things like the water crisis in Flint, Michigan; Jackson, Mississippi; and Compton, California,” Eckelberry states.</p> <p>This is revealed through recent&nbsp;<a href=""https://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/doi/10.1289/EHP7932"" target=""_blank"" rel=""noopener"">research</a>&nbsp;of children in low-income communities consistently showing higher blood lead levels than their more affluent counterparts. “As a byproduct of that, it is likely that we’ll see health disparities due to increased exposure to lead and other toxins.”</p> <p>Dedicated to improving the country’s ongoing water crisis, Eckelberry shares advice on protecting our children, involving the government and schools, to parents nationwide. “First, they need to recognize that there is a problem, and this starts with proper testing.</p> <p>Second, we need point-of-use solutions, meaning filtration right where we’re drinking the water so that even if there&nbsp;<em>is</em>&nbsp;lead in the pipes, it’s filtered out before it ever reaches our kids,” he says. This includes day-to-day solutions that start at home and create the potential for future impact. “On an immediate basis, we can send our kids to school with safe, filtered water and educate them not to drink from school drinking fountains.</p> <p>On a more long-term basis, we can advocate for proper testing and policies,” he adds. With more than 50 million children enrolled in public schools, keeping them free of lead poisoning is a problem that demands fixing.</p> <p>Likewise, opportunities to address the nation’s big problem include conducting the treatment and recycling of wastewater. Pairing&nbsp;OriginClear’s&nbsp;investor-funded&nbsp;<a href=""https://www.waterondemand.net/"" target=""_blank"" rel=""noopener"">Water On Demand™&nbsp;</a>initiative and&nbsp;<a href=""https://www.modularwater.com/"" target=""_blank"" rel=""noopener"">Modular Water Systems™</a>&nbsp;technology, Eckelberry shares how such projects can assist. “First, we can give schools access to this vital technology without charging them large, upfront capital expenses,” he says.</p> <p>Not to mention, businesses, industry, and communities who can get the water treatment systems they need.</p> <p>“The second way is that by helping industry and agriculture — who account for 9/10ths of freshwater usage — treat and recycle their water right where it’s dirtied, we reduce the burden on the central systems and enable them to better take care of the people.”</p> <p>Becoming educated about America’s quality of drinking water is essential to protecting human health (large and small) for years to come. Together we can achieve the ultimate goal — clean water for all.</p> <p>[...]</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Full article here: <a href=""https://www.wateronline.com/doc/the-dangers-of-lead-poisoning-in-schools-and-how-we-can-fix-the-nationwide-problem-0001"" rel=""noopener"" target=""_blank""><img src=""https://4822820.fs1.hubspotusercontent-na1.net/hubfs/4822820/images/News%20-%20Media%20Logos/Water%20Online%20logo%202.png"" alt=""Water Online logo 2"" width=""250"" height=""56"" loading=""lazy"" style=""height: auto; max-width: 100%; width: 250px;""></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>","https://4822820.fs1.hubspotusercontent-na1.net/hubfs/4822820/images/2023%20Website%20images/2023%20News/water%20online%20school%20drinking%20water%20ft.jpg","Third Party News Source","In The News"

Eckelberry explains that this, in turn, can have significant effects on our bodies—it can soften skin, improve hair, and reduce skin inflammation. “On top of that, the less we’re exposed to these toxins, the better our overall health can be,” he adds. “Skin absorbs water, so you want to make sure it’s high quality.”</span></p> <h3><span>How to choose a shower filter</span></h3> <p><span>[...]</span></p> <p><span>Eckelberry says that if you’re looking for a filter that will reduce the most amount of contaminants, try to go for one that also uses activated carbon in the filtration process. “I recommend a shower filter with advanced filter technology, often with activated carbon,” Eckleberry says. “These are designed to remove a wide range of contaminants—some remove as many as 200 different kinds—and cover all your bases.”</span></p> <p><span>[...]</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span>Full article here: <a href=""https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/best-shower-filter"" rel=""noopener"" target=""_blank""><img src=""https://4822820.fs1.hubspotusercontent-na1.net/hubfs/4822820/images/News%20-%20Media%20Logos/mbglifestyle%20logo.png"" alt=""mbglifestyle logo"" width=""250"" height=""65"" loading=""lazy"" style=""height: auto; max-width: 100%; width: 250px;""></a></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>","https://4822820.fs1.hubspotusercontent-na1.net/hubfs/4822820/images/2023%20Website%20images/2023%20News/shower%20filter%20article%20ft.jpg","Third Party News Source","In The News"

Why? Well, the water infrastructure has been neglected at least since 1960, and it's gotten worse and worse. That’s exactly what happened in Compton, California” he explains. This ongoing problem of failing water systems stems from decaying central infrastructure and a lack of funding for low-income neighborhoods, particularly among people of color and Latino communities. “We’ve seen a breakdown in central infrastructure for our 150,000 plus water systems in America. We had a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and they only allocated $55 Billion to water for the entire nation — yet we fall behind by $75 billion annually.

The assembly-line manufacturing process, which is still greatly in use today, uses a considerable amount of manpower, energy, metals, and water. This leaves behind a significant carbon footprint.

Producing one car uses about 40,000 gallons of water, which is really alarming when you consider that in 2021 the US produced 1.6 million cars. And not to mention, water rates are skyrocketing.” In almost every stage of auto manufacturing, water is needed with the highest usage during the metal finishing, boiler feed, paint/coatings shops, and cooling tower makeup processes.</p> <p>Leaders in the automotive industry are shifting gears. Both large and small companies are increasingly feeling the pressure to rethink how they operate. Eckelberry shares, “Luckily, more and more auto manufacturers are implementing water-saving practices and technologies, a trend which has resulted in a significant decrease in water usage over the last decade. But we must keep it going.” OriginClear’s Modular Water Systems™ division is already moving the dial in the auto industry.</p> <p>[...]</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Full article here:&nbsp;<a href=""https://disruptmagazine.com/originclear-supports-automotive-industry-to-become-more-sustainable-through-water-saving-practices-and-technology/"" rel=""noopener"" target=""_blank""><img src=""https://4822820.fs1.hubspotusercontent-na1.net/hubfs/4822820/images/News%20-%20Media%20Logos/D!$RUPT%20logo.png"" alt=""D!$RUPT logo"" width=""250"" height=""61"" loading=""lazy"" style=""height: auto; max-width: 100%; width: 250px;""></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>","https://4822820.fs1.hubspotusercontent-na1.net/hubfs/4822820/images/2022%20Website%20images/2022%20News%20images/D!$RUPT%20AUTO%20ARTICLE.jpg","Third Party News Source","In The News, Water On Demand News"

Behind intuition is a deep familiarity with the business you are in.” Great advice for those that have been in business a while, but what about those getting their start-us off the ground?

These additional industries include water, air, animal protection, the arts, food, energy, literacy, wellness and building stronger structures to prevent earthquakes disasters. Like with real estate, through Equity &amp; Help® people can work with Philanthroinvestors, Inc. and invest in these efforts to help others through improving the planet while they grow their capital and get recurring cashflow.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Hard Facts</h3> <p>In 2019, Philanthroinvestors® discovered some hard facts: 6,000 kids die every year from water-related diseases and 80 percent of water is released untreated worldwide. The company realized immediately that saving planetary water was going to be the next endeavor for them to explore and support.</p> <p>“We started looking for a company to support our Water Philanthroinvesting™️ initiative, and officially in 2020 we partnered with and licensed our brand to The Water Company For The New Economy™️, OriginClear®️ which is helping Water Philanthroinvestors®️ finance a new breed of Waterpreneurs™️, all while potentially growing their capital and getting recurring <span></span>cashflow,” Anz said.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Six-Figure Business</h3> <p>“Meanwhile, these Waterpreneurs are creating a six-figure business that can purify a million liters per month or more, using OriginClear®️ technology. This is how we will get many people helping to change the state of water in the world and that is what matters most to our Water Philanthroinvestors!”</p> <p>“There are one billion illiterate individuals in the world,” Anz added. “All of these problems are the bottom of the iceberg that we are not seeing and not touching with enough energy and is directing us towards the most expensive and problematic industry in the world—the health industry, which has more than 95 percent of the world’s population with health problems.</p> <p>I realized the problem here is we are trying to send someone to Mars, instead of looking at how to properly manage and administer a planet. What if instead we use our minds and resources to conquer this planet and life?”</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Going to Another Level</h3> <p>Questions like those made Anz realize that Philanthroinvestors® was ready to “go to another level.” He thought it was great that the brand was helping families live in their own HappyHome™, but he realized it was born to also help the planet in a much broader way. He brought on Arte Maren, who has more than 50 years of experience as an executive coach for professional organizations, franchises, and private companies and corporations, as CEO of Philanthroinvestors, Inc.</p> <p>“We decided to expand and said, ‘OK, we’re going to go more into different areas and help the planet,’” Anz said.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>A Greater Ideal</h3> <p>Anz and his team see the Philanthroinvestor® identity as the solution to a lot of the planet’s problems that need to be addressed. He believes people who can invest money and time while engaging emotionally to promote human welfare while still earning returns can make a big difference.</p> <p>“Planet Earth can be re-imagined and reorganized toward a far greater ideal; wherein every family will live in their own HappyHome™, where individuals eat organic and pure food, where animals and humans drink pure water and breathe clean air,” Anz said.</p> <p>“The world is able to acquire the energy it needs without wires or electrical structures and where every functional space is creating and renewing its own energy. It is a world without illiteracy. It is a world of wellness, not disease. A world where artistic talent is recognized and developed. A world in which individuals respect their money as a tool to create an ideal planet and do not throw it away in speculation or gambling, a world where true financial freedom is brought about with knowledge, engagement, fulfillment and high purpose. That’s something we need to conquer before going to Mars.”</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href=""https://thinkrealty.com/invest-with-purpose/"" rel=""noopener"" target=""_blank""><img src=""https://f.hubspotusercontent20.net/hubfs/4822820/images/2020%20website%20images/2020%20News/Screen%20Shot%202021-01-07%20at%202.49.32%20PM.png"" width=""250"" style=""width: 250px;"" alt=""Think Reality logo""></a></p> <p style=""text-align: left;"">Read Full Original Article <a href=""https://thinkrealty.com/invest-with-purpose/"" rel=""noopener"" target=""_blank"">HERE</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>","https://4822820.fs1.hubspotusercontent-na1.net/hubfs/4822820/images/2022%20Website%20images/2022%20News%20images/Anz-Think%20Reality%201Jan2021%20ft.jpg","Third Party News Source","In the News"

Finally, I’ve recognized that the ability to figure something out quickly is a good thing, but you also have to gather expertise and experience in a particular field.

This company was founded in 2017 with the goal of developing and exploiting a patented system for pig manure management based on two processes: electro-coagulation and electro-oxidation.</p> <p>“The main objective of the system is the reduction of the nitrogen present in the excretions of livestock and therefore the reuse of the resulting liquid (water). Once separated from solids and treated, it may be reused for irrigation, cleaning the stalls and can even be poured into the river as long as it is within the allowed parameters,” explains Eduardo Chopo, technical director and founding partner of Depuporc.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style=""text-align: center;""><img src=""https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/4822820/images/2020%20website%20images/2020%20News/Depuporc%20Agreement%20Heraldo%20de%20Aragon.jpg"" alt=""Depuporc Agreement Heraldo de Aragon"" width=""800"" style=""width: 800px; display: block; margin: 0px auto;""><span style=""font-size: 14px;"">The heads of the companies associated with the project, </span><br><span style=""font-size: 14px;"">during the signing of the commercialization agreement.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Global Impact</h3> <p>“Therefore, the environmental impact of the application of the system is global, since it reduces the water footprint of the establishment, avoids saturation of crop fields, avoids contamination of aquifers and reduces the emission of greenhouse gases,"" added Chopo.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Technology Partner</h3> <p>It is also a system which has sparked the interest of international companies. Depuporc has been working since 2017 with a ""technological partner"", the North American company OriginClear Technologies. In December of last year, both firms signed an agreement for the commercialization of Depuporc's system in the United States as well as in the operating zones of this company’s clients. ""This is a true turning point in our business model,"" indicates Eduardo Chopo.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>In Situ Pilot Plant</h3> <p>The operation of this system can be verified 'in situ' at the pilot plant that Depuporc<br>has in the province of Huesca. This facility was built in 2019 on an existing livestock farm. The plant is capable of managing 30 cubic meters of pig manure per day, which is the equivalent of what is generated by a farm raising about 4,000 pigs. This plant, as certified last December by an independent laboratory, achieves a 94% reduction in nitrogen, and a reduction in COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand, or oxygen depletion) and a 99% phosphorous reduction.</p> <p>In this plant, potential clients can ascertain under working conditions, the correct functioning of the system and how it can impact their operation. In fact, a few weeks ago, a delegation of the South Korean Ministry of Agriculture visited the plant. It’s “a country with half the area of Spain and a very similar population density, making the problems of intensive farming very relevant. The meeting was very positive for both parties”, explains the technical director of Depuporc.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>View Original Publication:&nbsp;<a href=""https://www.heraldo.es/noticias/aragon/2020/05/05/del-cerdo-hasta-los-andares-y-los-purines-1372895.html "" rel=""noopener"" target=""_blank""><img src=""https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/4822820/images/News%20-%20Media%20Logos/Heraldo%20de%20Aragon%20logo.jpeg"" alt=""Heraldo de Aragon logo"" width=""200"" style=""width: 200px;""></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>","https://4822820.fs1.hubspotusercontent-na1.net/hubfs/4822820/images/2020%20website%20images/2020%20News/Depuporc%20Heraldo%20de%20Aragaon%20ft-1.jpg","Third Party News Source","In The News"

In fact, he has a goal for his company,</span><span style=""background-color: transparent;"">&nbsp;</span><a href=""https://www.originclear.com/"" target=""_blank"" rel=""noopener noreferrer"" style=""background-color: transparent;"">OriginClear</a><span style=""background-color: transparent;"">, to be the driving force to take the water industry from $1 trillion to a $5 trillion dollar market.</span></p> <p>Ten years after launching public company OriginClear, Riggs and his team are offering those truck-in-place modular systems in the USA, while licensees are building products internationally using OriginClear’s low-energy, chemical-free innovation.</p> <p>Riggs Eckelberry is uniquely qualified to ride the huge wave of do-it-yourself water treatment that is transforming an industry, having learned management in the nonprofit space, captained oceangoing ships, and achieved several tech successes during the dot-com boom.</p> <h3 style=""font-weight: bold;"">Like the Computer Revolution, But With Water</h3> <p>When it comes to the growth of the industry, Eckelberry compares it to the PC revolution in the second half of the twentieth century.</p> <blockquote> <p><em>“Yeah, so you were afraid of Ray Kroc when he everybody thought they were making burgers at McDonald’s. He said no, it’s real estate. Well, think about it. by installing instead of installing I mean let me back up a bit. When we had mainframes, everything was centralized. then we had PC’s.</em></p> <p><em>And guess what? all the value, first of all, skyrocketed it’s trillions of dollars versus millions and billions and so many, many, more PC’s and the value of all those PC’s is now at the businesses and is no longer at the central Mainframe very similar here instead of being concentrated at some communal water treatment center, which you still need but But it would only then do the basics now.”</em><br><strong>– Riggs Eckelberry<br></strong></p> </blockquote> <h3>Growing Asset Value and Privatization</h3> <p>It’s not about the Burgers, it’s about the Real Estate. When Ray Kroc realized for each McDonald’s he owned, that it wasn’t about the food he was selling rather the true value was the land it was built on, there was a massive shift in the business world.</p> <p><span style=""background-color: transparent;"">The same thing goes for the trillion-dollar market that no one is talking about: water. Riggs Eckelberry and his company OriginClear believe that it can become a five trillion-dollar market. Previously companies relied only on public works to clean their wastewater.</span></p> <p>Now OrginClear is allowing businesses to put value into their own business by adding value to their real estate; they’re self-sufficient and saving a lot of money.</p> <p>For example, one business, a brewery, went from spending $200,000 on wastewater to $20,000 – valuable real estate that can now save money.</p> <p>Due to limitations by public works, the aforementioned brewery was not able to expand. Once they privatized their own water treatment, they not only raised their capacity but also saved money in the process. That’s what is meant by real estate, the value was added because there is less future cost associated with operating there.</p> <h3>Environmental Sustainability</h3> <p>The other side of the revolution is the environment itself. Though water is a renewable resource, there is a struggle for much of the world, leading to shortages of water. Besides being fast-growing economically, growth in the water industry will also have positive effects on the environment.</p> <blockquote> <p><em>“Now you’ve put a lot of treatment. Out at the periphery, we privatize it as you say, creating an asset number one and also adding value to the business itself. It’s got more ROI so we have a functional asset and here’s a secret. Is a concept called. Environmental social and governance; ESG. now environmental social governance says That you’re if you’re a corporation, That wants to get a certain kind of investment. And there’s over 22 trillion dollars of assets under management that are ESG compliant.</em></p> <p><em>If you want to be ESG type of investment Water is huge.

We’ve got to clean the water! And Riggs’ company<span>&nbsp;</span><a href=""http://www.originclear.com/""><strong>OriginClear</strong></a>® is promoting self-sufficiency in water treatment – the next wave in water independence – by providing more practical, efficient,&nbsp;economical and<span>&nbsp;</span><strong>decentralized<span>&nbsp;</span></strong>water&nbsp;systems that can save lives across the globe!&nbsp;<br><br></p> <h3><strong>OriginClear® Supports Government Push for Self-Help Water Treatment</strong></h3> <p>Earlier this year, California Governor Gavin Newsom proposed to charge water customers a new tax to fund safe drinking water for underprivileged communities.&nbsp; Good idea?</p> <p>Not so fast, Governor, says Riggs.&nbsp; While your motive is admirable, your method can be much more effective, practical and less costly.&nbsp; Instead of taxing drinking water, Riggs says let the rates do the work and instead promote<span>&nbsp;</span><strong>localized water treatment</strong>, which in the end saves money and water too.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>An Innovative Alternative</h3> <p>Riggs’ company is the leader in providing water treatment solutions, offering an alternative to the well-meaning governor’s proposal.&nbsp; Water is our most valuable resource and Riggs’ mission is to improve its quality and return it to its original and clear condition. OriginClear develops breakthrough water cleanup technology serving the rapidly growing $500 billion world market.</p> <p>“For sure, let’s help the at-risk communities,” says Riggs. “But the state needs to balance the new tax with rate relief. And that’s pretty simple: promote localized water treatment.”</p> <p>Eckelberry explains the water rate structure in California heavily penalizes high water use. New prepackaged, onsite water treatment systems, such as his company’s<span>&nbsp;</span><a href=""http://www.modularwater.com/"">Modular Water Treatment product line</a>, reduces usage dramatically through recycling.</p> <p>“You can build a 200-home subdivision, put in a self-treatment water system, water the lawns and golf course with your own recycled water. The entire half-million dollar system pays for itself in about a year,” says Eckelberry.</p> <p>Eckelberry sees self-help water treatment for businesses, factories, housing developments and farms rapidly evolving.</p> <p>“Instead of rebuilding our current infrastructure, we can equip water users to treat their own water with small, modular water treatment systems that can be built and installed locally, moving toward a decentralized structure.”<span><strong>&nbsp;<br><br></strong></span></p> <h3><span><strong>Go Modular!</strong></span></h3> <p><span>To realize this vision, the company launched&nbsp;its&nbsp;</span><a href=""http://www.modularwater.com/"" target=""_blank"" rel=""noopener noreferrer""><span>Modular Water Systems&nbsp;</span></a><span>division, which specializes in complete, prefabricated water treatment systems that can be positioned at the point of use.&nbsp;With onsite water systems, consumers get access to clean water and save on water rates. &nbsp;And that’s why Riggs is proud to have his John Hancock on the Declaration of Water Independence.<br><br><br></span></p> <p><em><strong><img src=""https://www.commpro.biz/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Thomas-Madden-250-x-201.png"" alt=""Thomas Madden - In MeToo Times, Careful How You Address Your Internet ‘Connections’"" width=""145"" class=""alignleft size-full wp-image-85305"" style=""width: 145px; float: left; margin: 0px 10px 10px 0px;"">About the Author:</strong>&nbsp;Thomas Madden is CEO of TransMedia Group, one of the largest independent&nbsp;<a href=""https://www.commpro.biz/public-relations-section/"">PR</a>&nbsp;firms in Florida, where it currently operates.

The company said it recently incorporated Econyl into its men’s boxers — a regenerated nylon made from rescued waste such as fishing nets and industrial plastic from oceans and landfills —as the brand is intent on elevating its products whilst considering “low impact, quality and price.” Dustin Winegardner, cofounder and managing director of Arvin Goods, told WWD, “We are always looking for new recycled fabrics that we can apply to our range,” he said. “We really wanted a functional everyday men’s boxer that had a story to fit in the brand. After some research and reading up on Econyl’s background and process, it seemed like a perfect fit. Adding ocean waste as an input to the Arvin Goods brand story we think is the perfect complement to our up-cycled cotton materials we are using in the other items.”</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><span style=""background-color: transparent;"">How The Experts View It</span></h3> <p><span style=""background-color: transparent;"">And the experts agree. Riggs Eckelberry, chief executive officer of water treatment solution firm</span><span style=""background-color: transparent;"">&nbsp;</span><strong style=""background-color: transparent;"">OriginClear</strong><span style=""background-color: transparent;"">, told WWD, “Micro-plastics and microfibers in our water have primarily two origins. One is waste plastic in the ocean, which slowly erodes into micro-particles, so tiny that fish would ingest them as part of their feed. This fish we eat are found to have these micro-particles that eventually end up in our organisms. Another one comes from daily activity.&nbsp;</span></p> <p>Microfibers coming from common washing machines find their way, via drained water and sewers, to the country’s water bodies and eventually to the ocean. Similarly, molecules such as Bisphenol (BPA) are used in plastics manufacturing for daily use products although being increasingly viewed as endocrine disruptors. According to the USEPA, one million pounds of BPA is released in the environment every year.”</p> <h5><span>View Original Publication -&nbsp;<a href=""https://wwd.com/business-news/business-features/field-notes-fashion-is-making-waves-1202897399/"" rel=""noopener"" target=""_blank""><img src=""https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/4822820/press-logo-wwd.jpg"" alt=""press-logo-wwd"" width=""100"" style=""width: 100px;""><br>By&nbsp;</a><a href=""https://wwd.com/wwd-masthead/tgreensteinwwd/"" itemprop=""author"" itemscope="""" itemtype=""http://schema.org/Person"">Tracey Greenstein</a><a href=""https://wwd.com/business-news/business-features/field-notes-fashion-is-making-waves-1202897399/"" rel=""noopener"" target=""_blank""> - November 5, 2018</a></span></h5> <p>&nbsp;</p>","https://4822820.fs1.hubspotusercontent-na1.net/hubfs/4822820/images/2020%20website%20images/2020%20News/koppelman-artie-wwd.jpg","Third Party News Source","In the News"

Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?</strong></em></p> <p style=""text-align: left;"">I consider that my training as a product manager on the classic Intel model at a company named Quarterdeck really gave me important skills to be a great CEO. Because the product manager is really the “CEO of his product”, while at the same time having no real authority. At the time, I created a world brand Windows utility named CleanSweep and learned the art of using any resource available to serve a 360-degree set of stakeholders. Also, the product manager must be fast and willing to do whatever it takes. Finally, I learned that it was not one thing that would create success, but a great number of initiatives, most of which would not succeed. But the critical mass of all these initiatives ensured success. I have applied that continuously at OriginClear.<br><br></p> <h3 style=""text-align: left;"">The Value of Algae</h3> <p style=""text-align: left;""><em style=""font-family: Montserrat, sans-serif; font-size: 18px; background-color: transparent;""><strong class=""jc jr"">Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you began leading your company?</strong></em></p> <p style=""text-align: left;"">We actually launched the company into the algae industry. We developed a way to harvest algae for biofuels using electro-coagulation. As late as April 2012, I was debating the value of algae as a biofuel with Jim Rogers on Bloomberg News (<a href=""https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzWvl9WDBnw"" class=""cq gg jn jo jp jq"" target=""_blank"" rel=""noopener"" style=""font-style: normal;"">clip</a>). But by then, algae had already been overwhelmed by the tidal wave caused by fracking and horizontal drilling. Overnight, algae became a science experiment. Other companies in algae, including the prestigious NASDAQ company Solazyme, closed. We managed to pivot in to using our harvesting technology to clean very dirty, very oily water. We actually went into cleaning up frack flowback water! Ironic since this was the industry that had destroyed algae… And then even more ironically, oil prices crashed in 2014, too! So once again, we adapted. This time we expanded out into industrial water treatment. Of course, now oil and gas is returning now. My head of technology is in a Middle East country right this second, working on a deal with the national oil company. We were there in 2014, and that has ensured our return, because we have outlasted the four year depression in oil industry infrastructure spending.</p> <p style=""text-align: left;"">&nbsp;</p> <p style=""text-align: left;""><img src=""https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/4822820/images/news-social-media-2019/Oil%20Field%20Effluent.jpg"" alt=""Oil Field Effluent"" width=""800"" style=""width: 800px; display: block; margin: 0px auto;""></p> <h4 style=""text-align: left;"">&nbsp;</h4> <h3><strong class=""jc jr"">Core Technology</strong></h3> <h4 style=""text-align: left;""><em><strong class=""jc jr"">Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting?

My amazing inventor brother Nicholas came up with a dozen ways to improve all areas of algae production and processing for fuel. One day in late 2008, I walked into the lab and found my brother with a tank of algae and two electrodes. He was basically electroshocking the algae. I asked him what he was doing, and he said — I have no idea, but look… the oil in the algae is separating out! And that was the beginning of our patented Electro Water Separation that is at the core of our technology.</p> <p id=""fabc"" class=""iz ja du at jc b jd je jf jg jh ji jj jk jl jm ij dm"" data-selectable-paragraph="""">What I learned from this was that you never know where your success is going to come from, so just be willing to see it. Amazingly, a series of CTOs who came and went, refused to even look at Nicholas’ invention. I feel it is because their academic background meant they didn’t have the freedom to look. My brother being self-taught, has the ability to go outside the box — and we have a unique technology as a result, that can clear up water that is difficult to clear up otherwise. This is a vital thing in the world, in which 70% of all industrial waste water, and 80% of all sewage, is never treated at all.<br><br></p> <h3 class=""iz ja du at jc b jd je jf jg jh ji jj jk jl jm ij dm"">The Most Loyal Supporters</h3> <h4 class=""iz ja du at jc b jd je jf jg jh ji jj jk jl jm ij dm""><em><strong class=""jc jr"">What do you think makes your company stand out? Can you share a story?</strong></em></h4> <p class=""iz ja du at jc b jd je jf jg jh ji jj jk jl jm ij dm"" data-selectable-paragraph="""">Our investors are the most loyal in the world. We have gone through a multi-year biotech-style development path (the water industry can take 12–14 years to accept a new technology), and they have stuck with us through thick and thin. They know that when I send an update to 10,000+ people, any reply goes straight to my inbox. I try to be there for every single investor and update them continuously. It’s why, after all these years, they are supporting us as we finally crank up our revenues. Back in 2013, I was coming down from a climb in the French Alps with one of our key investors who was an old friend as well. As we walked and slid down the steep mountain path, he told me that if I screwed him over, he would never forgive me. Last week we had lunch, and I reminded him of what he said. He still invests!<br><br></p> <h3 class=""iz ja du at jc b jd je jf jg jh ji jj jk jl jm ij dm"">Water System In A Box</h3> <h4 class=""iz ja du at jc b jd je jf jg jh ji jj jk jl jm ij dm""><em><strong class=""jc jr"">Are you working on any exciting new projects now? How do you think that will help people?</strong></em></h4> <p class=""iz ja du at jc b jd je jf jg jh ji jj jk jl jm ij dm"" data-selectable-paragraph="""">We have so many great projects. But the one that has me really excited is Modular Water. Literally this is a water-system-in-a-box. The water industry makes water treatment systems by hand, much the way you build a house. This is more like a mobile home. The rigid containers mean that no foundation is needed, and the whole thing can be built in the factory and trucked onsite. Customers typically see a 5% to 25% costs savings when compared to existing conventional infrastructure solutions using concrete, fiberglass, and steel — with a lifespan that is up to four times greater (1100 years!). The whole water industry is going to “self-service” water treatment by industrial, commercial and agricultural users, and Modular Water is perfect for this.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><span>How We Help</span></h3> <p><span>Let‘s look at how this will help people. Imagine you are building a real estate development, 200–300 homes, in South Florida. Connecting up to the city system is a problem, because these systems are overwhelmed. But more importantly, if you send your black and grey water to them, you will have to keep buying new water for your golf course. With your own self-contained treatment module, you can treat the water onsite and reuse it to water the golf course. That is a huge water savings and it can make for a 2–3 year ROI on your little prefab unit. And you are being very green! (because otherwise, recycling rates in the USA are just 1 percent versus almost 90% for Israel). Finally, the Modular Water units are very easy to run so you don’t need special staff to run it. That’s because Dan Early has supplied Forward Operating Bases in Afghanistan with containerized waste water treatment units that an 18-year old soldier can operate! All in all I’m super excited to have Dan Early on board and we are piling in behind him as fast as we can.<br><br></span></p> <h4><em><strong class=""jc jr"">What advice would you give to other CEOs or founders to help their employees to thrive?</strong></em></h4> <p><span>Don’t inspect before the fact of an employee making a mistake. Give them maximum freedom of operation. That doesn’t mean let them destroy your work. You keep an eye out and monitor their output and you then train and manage them through it. I have high loyalty for my people and that does cost me sometimes. But I’m repaid with extraordinary loyalty too.<br><br></span></p> <h3><span>Willingness Is Everything</span></h3> <h4><em><strong class=""jc jr"">What advice would you give to other CEOs about the best way to manage a large team?</strong></em></h4> <p><span>Spend time only on the most willing and let the rest go. Willingness is everything, don’t let someone who has skills stick around if they are not 100% in the game. I have lots of time for people who are willing.<br><br></span></p> <h4><em><strong class=""jc jr"">None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that?</strong></em></h4> <p><span>My late wife Avis was Bob Hope’s niece. And she had his amazing regard for people and a style that permeated everything she did. At the time I met her, I had been recovering from a spectacular business failure, and she helped me find my center and start my path toward the C-suite. What I loved about her was her ability to pull together company events with style and attention to detail that we have never seen since. She even kept doing that while she was sick, and her determination shines through in my life to this day.<br><br><br></span></p> <p><img src=""https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/4822820/images/2020%20website%20images/PWT%20Ultrafiltration%20Systems%20Hero.jpeg"" alt=""PWT Ultrafiltration Systems Hero"" width=""800"" style=""width: 800px; display: block; margin: 0px auto;""></p> <h4>&nbsp;</h4> <h3><span style=""font-weight: bold;"">Working in Water is a Public Work</span></h3> <h4><em><strong class=""jc jr"">How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?</strong></em></h4> <p><span>My wife and I give deeply to action-oriented nonprofit causes like anti-drug education and more. But I still think my work in water is a public good. It’s amazing how most people in the world think water is a major problem. But the problem is so huge they do not know what to do about it. They sense we have a mission and that everything we do is to help with the problem, whether with a cleanup technology or even as in this year, with a cryptocurrency which could bring significant water funding top projects that are too small for Wall Street’s financing systems. Making water work is my mission and I love it.<br><br></span></p> <h3><strong class=""jc jr"">5 Key Things</strong></h3> <p><em style=""font-family: Montserrat, sans-serif; font-size: 18px; background-color: transparent;""><strong class=""jc jr"">What are your “5 Things I Wish Someone Told Me Before I Became CEO” and why.

I’m always astonished at the number of people who genuinely think they can help, and they are a waste of time. One particular investor relations practitioner dangled the prospect of a major celebrity in front of me for months for a potential endorsement. He even had the celebrity talk with me.

That’s something I learned again as a sailor. In February 2013 I was sailing with friends and we rounded a cape. Suddenly, the wind took us aback and we were flying for the rocks! The one person who said she was experienced disappeared into the cabin below. I took three guys, including my son who was 15 at the time, and walked them through the steps to get the boat backed away from its suicidal course.

It’s physically and mentally tough. Also, you have got to remember to take care of yourself and work out diligently. It actually gets rid of stress in a big way. Handling the pressures of this job without physical exertion is literally suicide. I learned that this year, when things got unbelievably busy as we were doing WaterChain and the Modular Water acquisition as a ton of financing, all at once. I stopped working out for a couple of months. Not only did I gain weight, but I was stressed. Now I work out almost every day.<br><br></li> </ul> <h4><em><strong class=""jc jr"">You are a person of great influence.
