LOS ANGELES and DALLAS, NOVEMBER 21, 2016 -- OriginClear Inc., a leading provider of water treatment solutions, today announced the designation of its subsidiary, Progressive Water Treatment (PWT), as its complete systems manufacturer. The decision comes on the heels of the completion of the company's fourth field study to date, in Kern County, California.

"A year ago, when we acquired the company, we were not ready to make PWT our systems manufacturer," said Riggs Eckelberry, OriginClear CEO. "PWT builds systems at the scale of regional power plants, and requires thoroughly field-proven technology. With the completion of our 2016 field study, we're confident that our technology is now ready for distribution. We plan to make PWT our first complete system manufacturer, for both licensees and end-users."

With help from its longtime suppliers of membranes and other components, PWT is building a showcase trailer-based system that incorporates OriginClear's patented Electro Water Separation™ (EWS) for a complete water treatment solution.

"I joined OriginClear for its technology," said Marc Stevens, President of Progressive Water Treatment. "I'm extremely happy to take it to market as a complete solution!"

"We have always been focused on licensing the technology, and this won't change," said Jean-Louis "JL" Kindler, President of OriginClear Technologies. "The difference is, licensees who aren't ready to manufacture our systems can now buy them from PWT. Of course, PWT will also be able to sell complete systems directly to end-users where we don't have a favored relationship with a licensee."

OriginClear's EWS with Advanced Oxidation (EWS:AOx™) effectively removes several organic contaminants and bacteria in water, preparing it for final polishing stages to operate efficiently and economically. It does this in a single pass, with minimal chemicals involved.

OriginClear commissioned a series of field studies to validate its technology, principally in the following locations:

  • Colorado's Western Slope
  • Texas Permian Basin
  • California's Monterey Basin

In 2016, OriginClear successfully demonstrated its ability to decontaminate produced water for reuse in agricultural irrigation in Kern County, CA. The field study employed OriginClear's latest Advanced Oxidation invention, which OriginClear announced in March.
