OriginClear Subsidiary to Update Power Plant Treatment System in Northeast

Feb. 12, 2016
Contract was awarded to OriginClear's subsidiary, Progressive Water Treatment

OriginClear Inc., a provider of water treatment solutions, announced that its subsidiary, Dallas-based Progressive Water Treatment Inc. (PWT), was awarded a contract valued at about $700,000 for upgrading and expanding a large boiler feedwater treatment system at a power plant in the Northeast. In the upgrade, a modern ultrafiltration pretreatment system will feed both an existing and an expanded reverse osmosis system. This upgrade/expansion project will bring the existing plant from 400 to 800 gpm production.

In January, Minnesota-based public utility Xcel Energy awarded PWT a large-scale contract for a boiler feedwater treatment system.

"These contracts are becoming more common as utilities and process industries look to replace their aging water treatment systems,” stated Mike Jenkins, PWT’s vice president of sales.

“In addition to lowering costs significantly, modernization helps to greatly reduce CO2 emissions, helping to combat climate change,” said Riggs Eckelberry, OriginClear’s chief executive officer.

The water treatment industry produces CO2 directly as an escaping gas and also through energy use. Close to 50% of the electricity-related emissions in wastewater management can be abated with plant modernization, according to a recent report.
