As OriginClear prepares to launch the full-scale operation in July, Florida Atlantic University is testing the technology to see how it might work in U.S. landfills as wastewater treatment plants are increasingly challenged to handle the heavy contamination loads presented by landfill...
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.
But water waste is still a problem. For example, in California alone, nearly 60% of freshwater allocated to farming is lost to evaporation and runoff.
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.
