Treating Potable Water

OriginClear’s AOx™ is a next-generation Advanced Oxidation Process.

It has been shown to achieve real-time sanitation and reduction of micro-contaminants in potable and near-potable waters.

What Are These Contaminants?

Endocrine disrupting chemicals have been implicated in numerous adverse health outcomes, including… infertility… early puberty, breast and prostate cancer, thyroid disorders, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, obesity, diabetes, asthma, immune disorders, and more.

The Endocrine Disruption Exchange

There are a great many micro-contaminants, and OriginClear maintains a complimentary database (click here to view preview site).

But the greatest threat to human and animal health may be EDCs: Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals.

These chemicals include pesticides and herbicides, hormones, pharmaceutical and recreational drugs, and industrial solvents.

Filtration Is Not Enough

No water treatment solution can achieve 100% effectiveness.

Micro-contaminants remain, even after multi-stage filtration and reverse osmosis.

Filters are selective as to what they filter out; and they can become less effective over time.

In addition, water filters have been shown to create their own bacterial populations.

For instance, a study published in the journal Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology concluded that activated carbon block-based point-of-use drinking water filters “significantly alter the bacterial abundance and composition of drinking water.”

Existing systems for potable water treatment need a final barrier to catch these last fractions of micro-contaminants.

The Answer

The answer is OriginClear’s next-generation Advanced Oxidation Process, AOx:

  • AOx positions as a final electrochemical barrier to effectively reduce many of these contaminants when earlier steps have missed them.
  • AOx treats the last fraction of micro-contaminants in potable water, missed by virtually all other solutions.
  • AOx can prevent bacterial contamination from filters by acting as an electrochemical sanitizing agent.
  • AOx can help attain a new water standard, Super Toxin Free™.

Commercial Availability

With recent developments, we have shown AOx to be viable at the laboratory scale.

We now seek licensing and joint venture partners throughout the world to help us demonstrate and scale up this technology.
