For its first eight years of existence, OriginClear focused on its wastewater treatment technologies. In 2015, OriginClear Technologies was launched as an internal division, alongside the OriginClear Group.
Our mission is to develop Electro Water Separation™ with Advanced Oxidation™ (EWS:AOx™) and achieve this breakthrough technology’s full recognition as an international industry standard in addressing the world’s increasingly complex wastewater treatment challenges. By doing so, OriginClear continues to grow as a leading provider of water cleanup services.
For this purpose, OriginClear Technologies division relies on an ongoing strong R&D and engineering activity for the development of its technology, while actively building its licensees, joint ventures and partners network for commercial development.
Water Treatment Technology Overview
Electro Water Separation with Advanced Oxidation
OriginClear’s Electro Water Separation™ (EWS™) is a wastewater treatment 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 viruses, and neutralize harmful chemicals such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide.
The combined technology, EWS:AOx™, is an inline, compact and easily-managed water treatment 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.
Continuous, Fast and Extremely Thorough Water Treatment
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. The resulting treated water can become a valuable resource.
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.
