OriginClear already implements its technology in East Asia and is testing solutions for North America at Florida Atlantic University.
"We go to the early adopters first," said OriginClear CEO Riggs Eckelberry. The cost-effectiveness of the new technology allows him to predict a future in which companies operate decentralized, on-site water treatment centers that recycle dirty water and push it to points of use.
Spain's patented Depuporc system will integrate OriginClear technology for high-speed, chemical-free water clarification and sanitation.
OriginClear Inc.’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Progressive Water Treatment Inc. (PWT), completed the installation and startup of a $2 million boiler feedwater system for a power plant operated by a major Midwestern public utility.
This is the third large power plant project that PWT designed, built, installed and successfully started up in 2016, bringing the total such orders to approximately $3.5 million for the year.
Two US companies - OriginClear and ECT Services & Solutions - team up to recycle produced water on the site of oil and gas operations for use in agricultural lands in drought-stricken California.
...PWT is building a showcase trailer-based system that incorporates OriginClear’s patented Electro Water Separation™ (EWS) for a complete water treatment solution.
Even China’s problems present lucrative opportunities for niche California companies. Heavily polluted water, for example, has drawn Chinese investors to companies like OriginClear, which is housed in the Los Angeles Cleantech incubator downtown and makes technology to treat filthy water.
In the same way the personal computer revolution transformed how we engage with electronics, the water industry is decentralizing and democratizing.
Looking to the future we plan to become a major player in the outsourced water treatment business in North America.... In order to achieve this we plan to acquire other firms working in the industry, as well as establish our technology as a de facto standard in first-stage water clarification.
