OriginClear wins a first commercial order for landfill waste water treatment system in Malaysia
“There are approximately 300 landfills in Malaysia. This means that a successful installation could lead to more business in both landfill runoff and other applications in Malaysia, China and elsewhere.
We also believe that our ability to retrofit to existing basins is a competitive advantage.”
Jean-Louis “JL” Kindler, President, OriginClear Technologies
The JV company, OriginClear Water Solutions Sdn Bhd (OWS), plans to utilize OriginClear’s proprietary technology, Electro Water Separation with Advanced Oxidation (EWS:AOx™).
In May 2017, OWS received a purchase order from Envirogard, a water treatment systems engineering company based near Kuala Lumpur.
The assignment is to retrofit an underperforming landfill leachate treatment system with an EWS:AOx system. Required capacity is 100 m3 (approximately 26,000 gallons) of waste water per day, to be increased to 400 m3 (more than 100,000 gallons) per day, to manage peak flows during the rainy season beginning in October.
In addition to treating “black water” or landfill leachate, which OCHK has already demonstrated in China, OWS also plans to tackle the POME industry.
Totaling more than 65 million tons annually, POME effluent is widely recognized as a major environmental concern because its contamination level can be 100 times higher than domestic sewage.
Two GE Water veterans, David Woo and Alvin Chong, founded Osmocell Malaysia in 2011 to capitalize on more than twenty years of experience and connections in the region.
“We especially value the ability of Electro Water Separation™ with Advanced Oxidation (EWS:AOx™) to remove fine suspended solids, oils and dissolved organic contaminants, efficiently and continuously, to assure clog-free functioning of our downstream membranes and filters.”
David Woo, Managing Director of Osmocell Malaysia
According to Osmocell, it has now installed more than 20 Ultra Filtration and Reverse Osmosis systems in Malaysia and the region.
