Blue Gold: this century’s investment frontier

Dec 19, 2019 3:18:42 AM / by Riggs Eckelberry posted in CEO Updates

0 Comments

Flash! Catch my CEO Briefing today at 5pm Pacific / 8pm Eastern. We'll cover planning for the new year, including potential acquisitions, and driving sales both here and abroad.


Good morning!

We have a problem, and I talk about it in this article:

"Currently, about 90% of the U.S. population relies on centralized networks of pipes and huge “mega-facilities” for water treatment and distribution.

"But due to a lack of proper funding, a general deterioration of this water infrastructure has occurred at a rapid pace, nation-wide."

But where there's danger, there's opportunity.

Blue gold: why water is this century’s most important investment frontier.

You see, market opportunities related to the water sector are expected to reach one trillion dollars by 2025. That's just five years away.

And according to this report, the fast-movers will take much of this business. 

You see, the old-school water industry builds massive, centralized water systems. What are the odds that they can build these fast enough to deal with these challenges... when the existing ones are already failing?

No, the cities and the large water companies are too busy trying to keep up with the failing mega-systems. 

Only decentralized systems placed at the “point of need” can respond fast enough.

And that's us. We're the fast-movers. 

Today's Briefing:

Join me as I review our plans for 2020, including potential acquisitions, and driving sales both here and abroad.

Catch you later today!!

Spain's Manure Treatment Breakthrough

Nov 20, 2019 2:01:52 AM / by OriginClear Staff posted in CEO Updates

0 Comments

Good morning!

We are on our way to Barcelona, where our Spanish partner, Depuporc, will showcase its manure treatment pilot system, which fully integrates our Electro Water Separation™ and Advanced Oxidation (AOx™) technologies!

CLICK TO EXPAND

Fast-expanding pork production

Spain is the fourth largest pork producer in the world, after China, Germany and the USA.

And it's expanding at a record rate: according to an industry group, "the sector has experienced “extraordinary growth” over the last five years, having increased exports by 47% in volume and 36% in value between 2014 and 2018."

Growing environmental problems

Fast-growing pork production means fast-growing... manure lagoons. These lagoons are useful as an initial treatment, but the lagoons are an environmental threat. CAFO, or Concentrated Animal Factory Operations, generate much more manure than can be easily spread on nearby fields. 

And in the US, flooding of lagoons in the mid-Atlantic is a recurring problem, when hurricanes hit. Check out this photo of the same farm before, and during 2016's Hurricane Matthew:

CLICK TO EXPAND

The solution to storing manure in lagoons is to produce pressed "cake" and clean water—a "zero-waste" solution that is both environmentally responsible and potentially financially useful to the farm operator.

Without our technology, it is extremely difficult to deal with the high solids content of manure effluent, which clogs filters and membranes easily.

A long road

Depurpoc's management learned that the road to acceptance of a new technology can be long. Production of a commercial pilot became absolutely essential to prove to pork producers that the technology works.

But, they persisted.

Now, we are going to witness a mobile treatment system that can travel to the hundreds of farms in Spain and process their lagoons into profitable and "clean" manure cake and clean water for use in cleaning and other farming chores. Coming back with lots of photos and videos!

And... perhaps a new strategic relationship, but we shall see—stay tuned!

No CEO Briefing this week or next

The Permian's Desperate Need for Water

Nov 10, 2019 9:13:51 PM / by OriginClear Staff posted in CEO Updates

IRAN DISCOVERS NEW OIL FIELD WITH OVER 50 BILLION BARRELS

That was the report on AP yesterday.

My friend Alex Lightman commented: "Iran just found 50 billion barrels of proven reserves just 260 feet deep. At $50 a barrel this is worth $2.5 trillion, almost the equivalent to a year’s output for the California economy. And all from Khuzestan, the western Arab province that the west stole from Iraq and gave to Iran."

Iran 50 B barrelsSource: Office of the Iranian Presidency via AP

Alex has figured out the geopolitical angle nicely. Meanwhile, we have our own story from the Permian Basin. It's about... the water.

My friend Dennis (not his real name, and you'll see why in a sec) called me last week. We've known each other for a long time. He sold a deal for $300 million, and now wants to work with us on his Next Big Thing.

What's the opportunity? 

One of the key fracking ingredients is sand. Apparently, there are now 30 fracturing sand mines in the Permian, and "in-basin sand production by one count has reached more than 60 million tons/year." One provider's Permian capacity "is expected to triple in 2019." source

One small problem: there's a water shortage in the basin, and so it's critical to wash the sand and also the wash-water so they can both be reused. 

Just one wash-plant can use a lot of water: one estimate puts it at 42,064,826 gallons of water per year! 

And we have 30 mines. Get where I'm going?

Why OriginClear?

"Dennis" knows that our technology, Electro Water Separation, is very efficient at removing the suspended solids from oil and gas frack and produced water, without clogging up, the way membranes and filters will. This is a major advantage.

So, we are in talks to get him up and running quickly to get a sand-washing facility going that also reuses the water.

Obviously, we can't promise anything (and that's why I can't even give my friend's real name), but I'm hoping we can get a deal done before our own Bill Charneski gets on a plane this weekend to go visit our licensees in Spain and Romania.

That's the pig manure water treatment story; exciting in its own right! I will cover both the Permian and European developments in my CEO Briefing this week...

So join me Thursday at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern on the weekly CEO Briefing! Limit of 100, so do sign up now.

From $1 Trillion to $5 Trillion

Nov 6, 2019 6:00:00 AM / by OriginClear Staff posted in CEO Updates

0 Comments

OriginClear CEO, Riggs Eckelberry Aims to Take Water Treatment from $1 Trillion to $5 Trillion.

That was last Friday's headline in Grit Daily, and the story went viral over the next few days in social media...

What happened?

First, the popular podcaster, Jeremy Ryan Slate, covered us — you can catch the whole thing here (video excerpt here).

CLICK IMAGE TO VIEW VIDEO 

jeremyryanslate originclear

Jeremy then wrote the Grit Daily story. (And we've hired his team to book many more podcasts for us, so stay tuned...)

(Oh and there was a cool radio show on Health Media Now, which explores the same theme. Worth a listen, if you have the time...)

So, what's this about $1 trillion to $5 trillion?

Five years ago, a Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Research report concluded that:

"...Increased demand for water could generate potent investment opportunities. Water-related industries already represent a roughly $500 billion market; we think it will double to $1 trillion by 2020."

But here's the thing:

Globally, over 80% of all wastewater is discharged without treatment.

80% dumped!!! How could that be? Well, it can be, and it is. It really is as bad as you think.

In other words, if only 20% of the water is treated, this one-trillion dollar industry should be a five-trillion dollar industry!

Here's the report that tells us why this is so:

2017 UN World Water Development Report, Wastewater: The Untapped Resource:

"On average, high-income countries treat about 70% of the municipal and industrial wastewater they generate. That ratio drops to 38% in upper middle-income countries and to 28% in lower middle-income countries. In low-income countries, only 8% undergoes treatment of any kind. These estimates support the often-cited approximation that, globally, over 80% of all wastewater is discharged without treatment.

"In high-income countries, the motivation for advanced wastewater treatment is either to maintain environmental quality, or to provide an alternative water source when coping with water scarcity. However, the release of untreated wastewater remains common practice, especially in developing countries, due to lacking infrastructure, technical and institutional capacity, and financing."

OK so where is all this growth going to happen?

Not your local water district! The days of the billion dollar projects that tear up half a hillside are long-gone.

But there is a solution, and it is what we call Instant Infrastructure™, built by businesses everywhere. 

And it's what I'm going to discuss tomorrow (Thursday) at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern on the weekly CEO Briefing, so sign up now. 

We are very excited about the potential for OriginClear. Reminds me of the old days in the dot-com, but for water.

Technology that helps human beings. And we've found the key to changing the water industry. Do join us tomorrow on the call!

IMPORTANT: Great developments on OCLND mean that our ultra-generous investing offer is going to become... less generous!

Now's the time to call. If you are an accredited investor, please contact my assistant Devin Angus at (323) 939-6645. His extension is 116. You can also email invest@originclear.com

Privatizing Big Water

Oct 23, 2019 8:09:22 PM / by OriginClear Staff posted in CEO Updates

0 Comments

Happy Wednesday!

This photo is... well, exactly what it looks like.

Yep, a toilet! This had been "black water" (flush water) just a few moments before. And not just in a home, but in a big commercial operation.

Toilet Reflush Water-e-c 445

Here's what our Senior Engineer Daniel M. Early had to say:

"This is an actual photo of the water produced by our first closed loop blackwater recycling system where we are supplying reclaimed water for reflush purposes at a Pennsylvania automotive dealership.

"The water in this toilet is derived from the use of our tertiary treatment system and is being recycled numerous times, all while reducing potable water demand and having ZERO impact on the local environment.

"No drainfield. No direct discharge. self contained and closed loop."

(We will explain all these terms on tomorrow's call!!)

This is a big deal, because this automotive dealership was cut off from the city sewage system. They had to become totally self-sufficient — not just for the human waste, but for all other toxic waste.

So it means a lot that this water is showing up, clear, in a toilet!

There is a whole back story on this, how they had to work out all the government permits, and so on...

Dan will join me on tomorrow's briefing to tell the story.  

Also hot off the press, today's interview with top podcaster Jeremy Ryan Slate:

Jeremy Ryan Slate: There's a Trillion-Dollar Market that no one is thinking about... It's time to disrupt it. I chat with Riggs Eckelberry of OriginClear about Privatizing Big Water and the Trillion-Dollar Market he wants to turn to Five Trillion.  

So that's a deep dive into the megatrend of Privatizing Big Water.  You're helping us own it!

I will discuss this on the CEO Briefing tomorrow, too.

Shazaam!! From Manure to Clear Water

Happy Thursday!

Back in December 2017, we announced that our licensee in Spain had turned manure water into clear water.

Here's the video, from nearly two years ago:


(Click Image to Watch Video)

Screen Shot 2019-10-16 at 9.24.12 PM

2 Dec 2017: The scientists at the laboratories of OriginClear's Spanish partner Depuporc run raw cow manure through Advanced Oxidation - AOx™. Clear water emerges, free of organics, phosphorus, nitrates and ammonia.

Drumroll.... they've got a functioning pilot system now!

Pilot doesn't mean small—it can process up to 30 metric tons per day. That's plenty to close the sales they are working on.

(Remember—with over 28 million animals, Spain is now the world’s third largest pork meat exporter after China and the U.S...)

Yes, expect a formal announcement with all the testimonials and what it means going forward.

But right now, if you tune in on today's briefing, I will give you some of the story and what our Spanish friends are saying.

Here's a snippet of Depuporc's blueprints showing our EWS and AOx systems in the mix...

I'm beyond excited, because our original technology is proving to be... exactly what we envisioned.

I will also discuss the size of the manure effluent market, as this is turning into a major pillar of Bill Charneski's Technology Division.

In fact, I'm going to ask him to join us on the call before he leaves for Spain to witness the action...

See you on the call!

Do Tap Water Contaminants Cause Cancer?

Oct 3, 2019 12:26:41 PM / by OriginClear Staff posted in CEO Updates

0 Comments

Happy Thursday!

Even water that meets drinking water standards... could be bad for you.

That's the conclusion of a study published in the research journal Heliyon.

The headline on Fox News announced, "More than 100,000 cancer cases could be caused by contaminants in tap water, study finds".

The article went on to report:

Overall, tap water exposure to the carcinogens studied leads to 105,887 cases of cancer in the U.S. over a statistical lifetime, or 70 years. This is the equivalent of four cancer cases per 10,000 people.

What does this mean? I'll discuss that on today's briefing.

3rd Quarter done — How are we doing?

On the call, as our 4th Quarter begins, I will be reviewing the company's performance and outlook.

Please note that I cannot give formal guidance for Q3 just ended, as those numbers are still being reviewed. 

Still, I believe that the call will be useful to you as an investor, and I hope you will join me!

Cities, Acquisitions, Latin America

Happy Thursday!

OK so we know that water quality is a problem in many US cities. But how can we be most effective in helping? The answer: do what you already do best.

You can watch my MoneyTV report here, but here's the basic story:

Start with water stations!

Turns out our team is building specifications for premium water kiosks for a prospective commercial customer. The units look great and are HIGHLY affordable.

Now, I have great admiration for Jaden Smith's approach, installing water stations in churches in Flint, Michigan. What a brilliant idea! (link)

And so by emulating his example, we have a way to bridge over from our commercial business to the nonprofit activities we are planning (link).

And... we still have the new consumer products in the works in our Lab!

Back on the acquisition warpath

Bill Charneski and Marc Stevens have lit up prospective acquisitions again. (As always, no guarantees but we have a great, willing company and a way to make it all happen.)

Hear more about it in tonight's CEO Briefing.

Cartegena CEO Update

This is the busy port of Cartagena, Colombia, in the rain, today.

There is a lot going on for us in Latin America: after many months of discussions, we're coming close to a major regional partnership with a well-funded partner.

One key element is manufacturing. Latin America is a growing source of quality, cost-effective manufacturing for itself, and the USA.

I'll be discussing that too, today... Again, there are no guarantees we will succeed, but we are well along in the process.

So... You owe it to yourself to join me on today's briefing! If you miss it, we will have a summary up on that page by the weekend, but the live phone call is so much more interesting...

Aspen Success, Quarterly Results

Aug 21, 2019 11:52:05 PM / by OriginClear Staff posted in CEO Updates, Enough Is Enough

0 Comments

Good morning!

We did it!

Cedric Ceballos and Fred Martin joined me on stage at the famous AREDAY 2019 conference to present the Enough is Enough™ campaign to an enthusiastic audience!

Cedric and Fred (bios here) grew up in Compton, California and played on the same basketball team in high school. Cedric went on to be a star player for the LA Lakers and Phoenix Suns, while Fred began a brilliant music career, currently touring the famous Compton Kidz Club...

(Click Image to Expand)

The audience LOVED the presentation.

Why? because it's about local action to immediately deal with the water problems, starting with Compton and then go on to other places like Newark, New Jersey and even little-known South Bend, Indiana—which I'm told has lead levels six TIMES what we saw in Flint, Michigan!

What's next? You'll learn all about it in my CEO Briefing today at 5pm Pacific.

Quarterly Results

We posted our 2nd Quarter report on Monday. A few highlights:

  1. Sales were $1,014,922, 37% higher than Q1 of this year, but 19% lower than the same quarter last year.
  2. At the same time, Cost of Goods Sold came in 22% less than same quarter last year, reflecting progress in improving gross margins.
  3. As a result, Gross Profit at $190,873 was roughly the same for this quarter as last year's at $193,698.
  4. Overall, our Loss from Operations was ($786,131), which is 29% lower than the same quarter last year.
  5. We saw significant reductions in all categories: Selling and marketing expenses, General and administrative expenses, Research and development, and Depreciation and amortization.   

Conclusion: business improved from Q1 to Q2, while our operations are increasing in efficiency. Losses From Operations are still substantial, but narrowing.

Outlook for 2nd Half 2019: our operating divisions are reporting that the Sales Reps we signed up early this year began to send us significant business in June and onward. And our new Corporate Sales Group began generating all-new leads this month.

In short, we believe that the third and fourth quarters will continue the improvement already seen from the first to the second quarter.

I'll be discussing these results in depth on the CEO Briefing today, so... Join me on today's call!

Good morning!

"Compton district that served ‘disgusting’ drinking water will cease to exist", announced an LA Times article earlier this year. 

OK, but the problems with this "brown water" are ongoing.

So, last month, my brother and co-founder Nicholas and I met with a pair of well-connected Compton citizens to find out what was going on.

(Click Image to Expand)

Nicholas E taking water sample in Compton

Here he is, taking a sample of the water for lab analysis.

Both Nicholas as a now-private inventor, and OriginClear, are happy to help the county solve this problem.

But centralized solutions take time. Meanwhile, area taps continue to run brown water. “It’s disgusting, but safe,” quotes the article. 

Really?

All I know is that if this were going on in Beverly Hills, it would be fixed, and pronto.

Am I right?

Enough is enough. We intend to deal with the problem right at the point of pain, buying time for the county to fix it.

I will tell you all about in today's CEO Briefing, at 5pm Pacific. Sign up here.

I'll also tell you about how decentralized water treatment is good for global warming, and of course about how we are continuing to execute on our plan for the second half of this year.

Our Hottest Product? You'd be surprised.

Jun 27, 2019 5:30:00 AM / by Riggs Eckelberry posted in CEO Updates

0 Comments

 

Good morning!

As you know, our Modular Water Systems™ brand features a line of patented, prepackaged, prefabricated systems.

But you might not know what has turned into our hottest packaged product.

Drumroll... Pump Stations!

(Click Image to Expand)

Salyerville Pump Station Collage

Take a look at this one, designed and built by our own Dan Early, in Salyersville, Kentucky.

Check out how tall it is... Of course, it disappears from view and does its job quietly, for decades.

That is... if it's a Packaged Pump Station from OriginClear!

And they are so popular that Pump Stations actually dominated our modular sales opportunities in the 1st Half of 2019.

Why We're Selling Nonstop Pump Stations

Remember those Manufacturer's Reps Bill Charneski signed up earlier this year?

Well, they like to send us Pump Station leads. Why?

  1. Ours last much longer... 75-100 years.
  2. Ours cost much less... 10-35%.
  3. Ours are standardized... so they're built fast.

So... they send us the leads. No dummies: they only get paid on sales!

Pump Stations are everywhere.

Also known as Lift Stations, these are used wherever water has to be moved. 

It's a HUGE market: the global water pump market (just one piece of the total) is expected to generate around USD 66.51 billion by 2024 (source). That's big.

Pump Stations are simple. 

They're basically a cylinder and a pump. And the reason we do so well is that our patented design is... a highly durable cylinder!

It's the thing we do — and sell — most easily.

Is it sexy? Maybe not, but we already have lots of exciting technology.

It feels really great to have something simple we can sell a lot of... while we also do the exciting, world-changing technology.

Speaking of which... the RoundUp® Killer.

I'll be discussing that in depth at 5pm today.

The Water System In A Box™

May 21, 2019 5:40:00 AM / by Riggs Eckelberry posted in CEO Updates

0 Comments

 Good morning!

Today, we are in an all-day meeting near Dallas, to launch our unified brand effort behind Modular Water Treatment.

The Age of Modular Water 

Dan Early joined us in the last week of June, 2018. He came to us with a following of prospective clients who wanted his prefabricated, prepackaged Water System in a Box™.

In addition to his "book" of prospective customers, Dan brought us his patents, which he licensed to us exclusively, worldwide.

Modular Patent List

(You can view this list in our recent annual report by clicking this link.)

Over the past months, we have indeed been signing up a number of those clients. And we are also responding to strong requests for new projects.

New organizational structure

Today's all-day meeting will put in place a new organizational structure that will clearly make our subsidiary, Progressive Water Treatment, into the "production engine" for the Modular water product line.

We have now recognized that Modular Water Systems has the technology the world needs right now

In other words, we now know we made our "home run" acquisition on June 24th, 2018. And we're treating it as such!

A unique look and performance

Many of Dan Early's designs have a special look. Why? Because they use the same highly durable and rigid material that they use in oil pipelines. It's called Structurally Reinforced Thermoplastic (SRTP).

This gives the units an amazing lifespan of up to 100 years — while conventional materials last 25 years or even less.

Here's one of his designs for a pump station (before he came to work with us) being shipped out to the Los Angeles Federal Courthouse, where it sits today.

The old pump stations leak badly.

A 2011 report from the California Public Utilities Commission estimated that 10 percent of all urban water deliveries are lost to leaks annually, reports California Magazine. 

This is the new generation. It's one of many such installations that are strong references for Modular Water today.


What about our core technology?

Meanwhile, what about OriginClear Technologies, home of Electro Water Separation
with Advanced Oxidation (EWS/AOx)?

Recently, Bill Charneski came back from a world tour to visit our licensees and ventures, and he determined who's producing in the network. These are the producers we will be supporting to the max.

Have a great rest of week.

Water Independence is For Real

Good morning!

On TV last week, I discussed a major problem (view clip here). Let me set the stage.

New York City's water supply system is among the finest in the world. New York barely needs to treat its water. If you've tasted the water, you know.

The High Bridge jpeg (wikipedia)

What New York built is unlikely to happen again.

On MoneyTV, I discussed how our national infrastructure is in bad shape, and getting worse; according to the EPA, we need to spend a quarter-trillion dollars to fix it. That money is just not available.

Sadly, the age of massive multi-billion dollar central projects is behind us. And business users are being increasingly stuck with the problem: what do I do with my dirty water?

The answer? Treat It Yourself!

In Water Online magazine two years ago, I predicted a new era of self-help water treatment for businesses, factories, housing developments and farms.

And guess what: it's happening! Our own Modular Water Systems is scrambling to meet demand for prefabricated water systems; and we are hiring as fast as we can to fill the gap (and labor markets are tight!)

Our service company in McKinney, Texas nearly tripled its business back in January. And another Texas company has told us that it's turning down contracts. 

Water Independence is for real. 

It's not just in Texas. California's tough new water reuse law, part of Title 22, is forcing businesses to build their own water treatment systems, and recycle more. 

That means many more on-site systems are going to be built.

When any business moves to the edge, there's a boom. Look at what happened when mainframes turned into personal computers. The PC market grew incredibly faster than mainframes.

That's what's happening in water. 

So it's boom times for the industry, and your favorite clean water company, OriginClear, is perfectly positioned to benefit!

Have a great week!

A Pearl Of An Acquisition

Jan 28, 2019 11:31:37 AM / by OriginClear Staff posted in CEO Updates

0 Comments

Good morning!

The "pearl"

Last Thursday, Bill Charneski and I met with that great company in Texas. And it really is a pearl. 

This company has an extensive international network and very solid governmental connections. If the acquisition goes forward, it will be a major upgrade of our global business. 

And we know there's synergy, because they already work with our Progressive and Modular divisions!

Now, there's still plenty of road from here to there, but we know that we have the following, in principle:

  • Financing.
  • A deal. So far, just a handshake and that's all it can be, until we finalize.

Where do we go from here? A lot of detail work, leading up to the disclosable, definitive agreement. If it happens at all, it's going to take a few more weeks. 

So... I'm quite optimistic. But — don't bank on it!

A regional opportunity

I don't usually pin any hopes on Big Deals. We've heard our share. This business is a running game, not a series of long passes.

But, there is a country in our hemisphere with a large population and a real water problem. The party in power has promised to solve the problem.

We're in talks with a team that says it has the relationships with the party in power, and has the money to roll out our tech in that country.

They asked me, "Riggs, what is your own goal?" And I answered that my ambition is to get onto the NASDAQ. They were OK with that.

But a little while later, I said, "you know, my real ambition is to make a real difference in water. To really change the way things are done in this industry."

And you know? That's the answer they were looking for. They are pretty cool, and I personally think this particular Big Deal may happen.

We will see.

OK - so that's the news for this morning. I see on our dashboard for this morning that Progressive and Modular — and our own Technology division — are doing extremely well in the new year.

So join me this Thursday, January 31 at 5PM Pacific Time, and I will discuss how it's going.

Have a great week!

Mike's Big Mojo

Happy MLK Day!

Important: the CEO Briefing scheduled for this Thursday is being rescheduled for the NEXT THURSDAY (the 31st).

The reason is actually quite cool: I will be on my way back from a meeting to sign a letter of intent to acquire a great Texas-based water company.

No promises, but we believe we have the funding lined up, and the great owners appear to be in agreement.

This is an amazing, profitable company, and we would be proud to have them join the Group. I can say no more.

For any real disclosure, you will have to wait for the disclosable event! Until then, do not bank on it!

I discussed this potential acquisition on MondayTV last Thursday. Watch it here.

OK so what's this Big Mojo story?

Mike Jenkins is the star V.P. Sales at our Texan subsidiary, Progressive Water Treatment.

On the 10th, he wrote:
"Well gents, I thought I had received a Dear John email to my follow up email this morning on this project. But when I signed into the site, this is what I found! 

Image may contain: text

(Note: It's a large power plant project.)

"This is one we had absolutely no inside track. Here is a list of the other approved bidders:

[hiding the names here]

1. Big US water company that sells pumps and filters.
2. Huge European water company.
3. Massive water engineering company.
4. Another major industrial water treatment company.
5. And... yet another Big Ten water company.

Progressive Water Treatment, Inc.

So what happened?

Back in August, one of PWT's reps got a new territory that included Colorado. He had been talking to a gentleman at the plant about a large RO (Reverse Osmosis) project coming up. The gentleman asked him if he knew any suppliers that he would recommend to bid it and he gave him Mike's contact info. The rest is history...

There are no coincidences, right? Just nonstop work on relationships, and great service.

More great surprises

That's far from the only great surprise we got in the first half of January. Marc and Mojo Mike and the whole PWT team are ON FIRE!!

OK - so that's the news for this morning.

Join me on January 31 at 5PM Pacific Time for the wrap up on the month.

And if you would like a private briefing in the meantime, just call (323) 939-6645 ext 116 or email ceoasst@originclear.com.

Happy Thursday!

Today's Topic: Integration

Part of our plan to become THE disruptive company in the water industry involves experimentation. These days, new technology requires a lot of what my friend David Batstone calls "enlightened trial and error".

But once you know what works, you have to integrate it into what you've got. 

That's what's going on right now. In today's briefing, I will discuss how we are integrating our award-winning technology with our latest hot tech, Dan Early's Modular Water.... And much more. 

I'll also give you an update on our project to acquire a slate of new companies!

So, join me at 5pm today.

Last Briefing of the Year

Dec 20, 2018 3:37:14 PM / by OriginClear Staff posted in CEO Updates

Happy Thursday!

Join me TODAY at 5PM Pacific Time for your final CEO Briefing of the year!

Just click here to book your spot.

These briefings are a great way to discuss our business and our latest developments, in depth

Today, I will review where we stand, especially the latest news that our pig farm system is launching in the USA after being piloted in Spain!

Here's the story from our President of OriginClear Technologies, "JL" Kindler:

Illinois pig farms

"Following our recent pilot in Spain, we are in late-stage negotiations to implement our pig manure treatment system in Illinois.

"Most pig farmers’ ponds are almost full and with a major hurricane or even heavy rain, they risk overflow of their ponds. This is significant liability, as it was demonstrated during the recent hurricanes (Florence). Their business is at stake. 

"Farmers need a solution to treat that manure that remains in the ponds, and possibly try to gradually decrease the level in these ponds, to offset the overflow risk. We are working with a local partner in Illinois who is planning to have a first unit deployed in Spring 2019.

"The envisioned system would be an industry standard, combining EWS:AOx with downstream polishing, for a daily treatment capacity of approximately 30,000 gallons per day."

Excellent progress. 

See you on the call!

 

Your CEO,

Riggs
