OriginOil has developed a breakthrough water cleanup technology for the oil & gas, algae and other water-intensive industries.
Unlike other technologies, the company’s patent-pending Electro Water Separation™ process rapidly and efficiently removes organic material from large quantities of water without the need for chemicals.
For the oil & gas industry, OriginOil is helping clean up produced water and recycle fracking water, to reduce harm to the environment and lower costs. For the emerging algae industry, OriginOil is making large-scale harvest possible. And in aquaculture, OriginOil is helping improve yields and making seafood healthier by dramatically reducing the levels of toxic ammonia and bacteria in water. For a world short on clean water, OriginOil is the lower-cost and cleaner answer.
Electro Water Separateion
OriginOil’s breakthrough water cleanup technology, called Electro Water Separation™ (EWS), is a high-speed, chemical free process that efficiently extracts organic contaminants from very large quantities of water.
Effective in Water-Intensive Industries
Because of its impressive feature set, EWS very valuable in water-intensive industries such as oil & gas, algae, and aquaculture.
EWS is currently deployed in various industry applications ranging from cleaning up “frack” water in oil and gas well operations, to reducing toxic ammonia and bacteria levels in fish farms.
EWS is entirely developed in-house by OriginOil and is protected by patents pending worldwide.
Threatened by Expansion
World farmed fish production topped beef production in 2011 for the first time in human history.
Fish farming is threatened by its own expansion. Bio-security is a continuing problem, with potentially high mortality rates for fish populations. And where water is re-used, removing ammonia is a major and expensive challenge. Fish farms are also heavy contributors to pollution of rivers, lakes and oceans.
A simple solution to these problems will greatly assist the expansion and viability of this $100 billion-plus global industry.
Triple Solution to a Global Problem
OriginOil’s Electro Water Separation (“EWS”) technology presents a triple answer to the problem of aquaculture:
- It can sanitize water by cost-effectively removing ammonia and killing bacteria and aquatic animal pathogens.
- It can cost effectively harvest algae for use as nutritious fish feed.
- It can effectively clean both supply and discharge waters.
