USPTO Grants Core Electro Water Separation Patent to OriginClear

The company’s two-stage water cleanup process now protected by U.S. patent

LOS ANGELES--()--OriginClear Inc. (OTC/QB: OOIL), developer of a breakthrough water cleanup technology, today announced that the United States Patent Office (USPTO) recently granted patent #9,085,745 to OriginClear. The patent incorporated the company’s two-stage electro-coagulation and -flotation process now called Electro Water Separation™ (EWS).

The patent title is "Systems and Methods for Extracting Non-Polar Lipids from an Aqueous Algae Slurry and Lipids Produced.”

“This is a very important patent for our breakthrough water cleanup technology,” said Jean-Louis Kindler, OriginClear Chief Operating Officer. “We have a body of 43 applications worldwide, supporting 11 key inventions that form the complete EWS suite.”

Electro Water Separation combines two proprietary stages of treatment. The first stage of the EWS treatment process, electro-coagulation, applies continuous electric fields to contaminated water causing organic particles and oils to clump together. The clumped material then travels to the second stage, electro-flotation, where, again, an electrical reaction generates a cloud of micro-bubbles that lift the concentrate to the surface for harvesting.

Kindler added, “In 2009, OriginClear invented its pioneering Single Step Extraction™ (SSE) process, granted as a patent in Australia (image), Japan (image), China and Mexico. This latest patent represents U.S. protection for our modern, two-stage EWS process.”

“This patent defines a tubular electro-contact design and a flotation concept that we have scaled up to become our EWS technology platform,” said Nicholas Eckelberry, Chief Research Officer and co-founder. “This was a key beginning for us. We have since advanced our understanding of this process; our later patents build on this important first discovery.”
