OriginOil to validate Electro Water Separation for frac applications

OriginOil, Inc.

OriginOil Inc. (OTCQB: OOIL), developer of Electro Water Separation (EWS), a breakthrough water-cleanup technology for oil and gas, algae and other water-intensive industries, has initiated two consulting agreements with top water-treatment engineering firms to validate the efficacy of its technology in the oil and gas and aquaculture markets.

Multinational engineering firm, MWH Global, plans to test and study the EWS Petro process for the recycling of produced and frac flowback water. Pacific Advanced Civil Engineering (PACE) plans to test and study the EWS Aqua process for the removal of ammonia and pathogens from pond water.

When applied to the oil and gas industry, EWS Petro (previously CLEAN-FRAC) operates in continuous mode to remove oils, suspended solids, insoluble organics and bacteria from both frac flowback and produced water. Tests have demonstrated a 99.9 percent reduction in free oil and a 99.5 percent reduction in suspended solids.
