The judges were impressed by OriginClear’s advanced water cleanup technology, Electro-Water Separation™ (EWS), which is based on electrochemistry and will tackle China’s most recalcitrant type of pollutants.
"Our new symbol better represents our mission to expand our global market presence through strategic acquisition,” said Riggs Eckelberry, president and CEO of OriginClear Inc.
'We have built big, all the way to commercial scale, at our mid-city headquarters,' said Riggs Eckelberry, OriginClear CEO. 'Now we’ve turned high tech and the more than US$5 million in testing and prototyping equipment at La Kretz is exactly what we need to support our scientific programs, and to export our technology.'
“If they do develop something to solve that problem here,” he said, “it could be also part of a global solution.” - Dr. Luis Cabrales

OriginClear utilized three electrolysis technologies (electrocoagulation, electroflotation and electro-oxidation) to separate and lift contaminants from the produced water. The electrolysis is a primarily chemical-free, low-energy, closed-loop process.
Under the MOU, Mr. Xu committed to payments totaling $1 million over two months to purchase the rights to the JV, and has already completed the first payment to OCHK of $150,000.
The paper reports that OriginClear's Electro Water Separation (EWS) technology effectively pretreats produced water from oil wells....
