OriginClear Asian Subsidiary Manufactures First Commercial Unit

Full-duty commercial system builds on to lab and pilot unit manufacturing capability

OriginClear Inc., a leading provider of water treatment solutions, recently announced that its Asian subsidiary has manufactured the company's first standalone commercial system, and is preparing to ship it to a Chinese industrial customer. This is a compact, full-duty commercial system that uses OriginClear's Advanced Oxidation Process, AOx, to remove ammonia from high-salinity effluent from an electrode-plating facility. OriginClear deploys AOx by itself, when water is already free of suspended solids. 

OriginClear's Indian licensee, Permionics Global Technologies LLP, has a need for full removal of solids and oils, so plans to have OriginClear build a pilot for an oil field project using the full Electro Water Separation capability. Like the Chinese commercial system, this unit would be built at the manufacturing facility of OriginClear Technologies Ltd (OriginClear Hong Kong), the company's Asian subsidiary. 

"We initially planned to manufacture our first pilot unit ourselves," said Satyajai Mayor, CEO of Permionics Global Technologies, the Indian licensee. "But since we are new to the technology and the process, we felt it would be prudent to procure the first pilot scale unit from OCHK to minimize risk and reduce time of execution. This would maximize our chances of commercializing this technology on a large scale." 

"Permionics has the perfect strategy," said Jean-Louis "JL" Kindler, President of OriginClear Technologies. "Having us build these units is a low-risk way to start selling OriginClear systems rapidly; and when they are ready, we can set them up with their own manufacturing capability." 

OriginClear Hong Kong is currently also manufacturing a lab-scale unit for a new licensee in Brazil, having recently built and delivered three similar units for licensees in Spain, India and Thailand, and a larger-capacity research and development unit for a European project. 

"We have been gearing up our China manufacturing at lab and demo-scale for over a year now," said Stephen Jan, Director of OriginClear Technologies. "I'm proud that we are now shipping commercial units, allowing licensees to do what they do best making customers happy." 

In addition to standalone manufacturing, OriginClear also works with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to help them integrate EWS into their end to end systems. 

OriginClear's subsidiary, Dallas-based Progressive Water Treatment, provides similar manufacturing and services for licensees in the North American market.
