Business Wire

LOS ANGELES & DELTA, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

OriginOil Inc. (OTC/QB: OOIL), developer of Electro Water Separation™ (EWS), the high-speed, chemical-free process to clean up large quantities of water, announced today that CLEAN-FRAC™1000, its new demonstration-scale frack water treatment system, was shown to successfully remove oil and contaminants at a showcase for media, public officials and prospective customers.

A company video documented the event.

Held at the headquarters of OriginOil licensee, Industrial Systems Inc. (ISI) on Colorado’s Western Slope, the showcase featured the CLEAN-FRAC™ 1000 system (photo), which is designed to process frac flowback and produced water at a rate of up to 1000 barrels per day (bpd), to the exact purity levels that customers require.

“We were excited to host a very effective demonstration of OriginOil’s flowback cleanup technology, CLEAN-FRAC,” said Bob Isom, CEO of Industrial Systems, Inc. “As the second licensee of OriginOil’s impressive water technology, we have a number of sales opportunities in the pipeline that we believe will accelerate with this tangible proof that OriginOil’s technology really delivers.”

CLEAN-FRAC integrates OriginOil’s EWS with a variety of “polishing” systems to deliver a wide range of purity levels that enable different reuse applications from re-injection into frac wells to potable drinking water. These systems include membranes, filters and resins. At this showcase, an iSep™ ultrafiltration (UF) membrane system from TriSep Corporation was the second step in treatment after EWS, resulting in visibly crystal clear water samples (photo).

“We were extremely impressed with how OriginOil’s unit performed upstream of our iSep UF,” said Mike Snodgrass, who headed the onsite support team from TriSep. “The two worked flawlessly together, removing all oil and suspended solids without experiencing any declines in performance and delivered water that our membrane could polish without clogging.”

Snodgrass added, “We are looking forward to supporting sales efforts by ISI and other OriginOil licensees.”

Selected public officials spoke at the event, from Jim Pokrandt representing the Colorado River District, to Delta County Commissioner Doug Atchley and Mayor of Delta, Ed Sisson. OriginOil plans to hold additional showcases throughout the summer to demonstrate the CLEAN-FRAC 1000 to public officials, media and customers, with plans for a grand finale in Houston, Texas.
