Technology Overview

Electro Water Separation with Advanced Oxidation

OriginClear’s Electro Water Separation™ (EWS™) is a breakthrough process that uses electricity to concentrate and eliminate suspended solids and oils from waste water. Advanced Oxidation (AOx) works in synergy with EWS to also remove dissolved organic contaminants, kill bacteria, and neutralize harmful chemicals such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide.

The combined technology, EWS:AOx™, is an inline, compact and easily-managed process with low energy and consumables cost.

EWS:AOx™ treats extremely contaminated water streams to high clarity so that expensive final-stage filters and membranes can operate at peak efficiency, making cost-effective treatment and reuse possible for a wide range of beneficial applications, including the particularly challenging ones such as landfill leachate.

Continuously fast and extremely thorough cleaning.

This multi-stage process is an energy-efficient, continuous system that advanced testing has shown can achieve up to a 99.9% removal of dispersed oil and a 99.5% removal of suspended solids, organics*, as well as specific contaminants such as ammonia, hydrogen sulfide or emerging contaminants such as some of the molecules contained in effluents from the pharmaceutical industry.

Because of its efficiency, EWS:AOx is particularly useful for applications in industries with effluents containing complex, hard-to-treat contaminants.

Proprietary electrode arrays.

A specific feature of EWS:AOx is the proprietary design of the electrode assemblies where Electro-Coagulation, Electro-Flotation and Electro-Oxidation work in synergy.

Their design provides the most efficient contact and mixing method for the processed fluids and the reactive species, and their specificity is a combination of anode/cathode shape, size, position, as well as selection of the electrode materials.

EWS:AOx  powers the water cleanup systems that are marketed by OriginClear’s licensing and joint venture partners.
