STW Resources Forms Joint Venture with Sunstone Water Group to Introduce Direct Potable Reuse- Toilet-to-Tap Technology

Joint Venture Builds on Company’s Focus on Water Reclamation, Water Desalination, and Remediation

MIDLAND, Texas--()--STW Resources Holding Corp, an integrated provider of water management, including water reclamation and remediation, and oilfield services, announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, STW Water Process & Technologies, LLC (STW Water) has executed an exclusive Agreement with Sunstone Water Group to commercialize their patented proprietary highly advanced wastewater treatment technology in the municipal marketplace.

The Sunstone technology can be applied to process municipal wastewater to potable drinking water. Additionally, STW Resources will make this technology available for use in disaster relief and recovery. The system can be easily transported in shipping containers for fast and efficient deployment. Sunstone’s technology increases STW’s arsenal of water treatment technologies keeping with the company’s model of being a source for cleaning all types of water. The Sunstone technology is currently operating in many countries in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. STW Water will be taking the lead for deployment of the process in the US.

In the agreement, Sunstone and STW will combine their respective technologies to provide a reliable package of water purification services for municipalities. Treating wastewater for potable use is the process of removing undesirable chemicals, biological contaminants, suspended solids and gases from contaminated water and returning the water to potable status. The goal is to produce water fit for human consumption. STW Water, in conjunction with Sunstone Water Group, has introduced Sunstone’s modular wastewater treatment system to the State of Texas that is focused and optimized for the processing of municipal wastewater for reuse.

Although there are several technologies on the market for this specialized type of water treatment, Sunstone has developed and patented a system that is far advanced technologically to any other systems available. Starting in April, STW, in conjunction with Sunstone, will be performing a pilot project, subject to the oversight of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), with one of the major cities in Texas to demonstrate and show the efficacy of the system and to also gain acceptance and approval for use commercially in municipalities. Although “toilet-to-tap” processing is not new, there has not been a very serious commitment from industry to pursue it. It has been slow to achieve public acceptance. But, because of the drought situations and fresh water shortages in several parts of the United States and other areas of the world, it is and will become a necessity to everyone.

Alan Murphy, President of STW Water, said, “The Sunstone technology is capable of processing and cleaning this contaminated water to specs that are cleaner than the bottled water that is bought in stores every day. We are wasting our precious fresh water resources every minute of every day when we could be reusing it. We have the technology to clean and process nearly every type of contaminated water for reuse now. Everyone needs to realize that it is a commodity that has to be conserved in every way possible.”
