Get On Our CEO's List

Frack Water Cleanup Showcase!

Good morning!

The launch of our aquaculture showcase was such a success (did you see the cool video?), that we are now organizing another high-profile launch.

This time, it’s our frack water cleanup showcase.

Once again, we will launch in California. That will get maximum visibility, because the bill that Governor Jerry Brown recently signed to permit fracking in the state is hugely controversial.

The showcase is at a site in Bakersfield, part of California’s Monterey Formation.

Our partner PACE is working feverishly to complete its 1500 bpd (barrel per day) Frack-Back™ system incorporating our Electro Water Separation™ technology.

We also plan on having our own standalone unit so showcase visitors can see what EWS Petro™ can do on its own :-)

The date: March!

Yes, we do have a specific date in March, but we need to clear it with the elected officials we are inviting. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s firmed up.

As in the Coachella Valley, the event will be primarily for industry and media, but we should be able to invite a limited number of our shareholders, so stay tuned…

How to get the right people to show up.

When we launched our permanent aquaculture showcase, we knew that December 18th was a tough date for VIPs.

So I called up my old friend Ben Lubbon, a Sacramento mover and shaker, and he made it happen! Here he is with two of the officials at our aquaculture showcase opening…

So Ben is already working with us to line up officials for the March frack water showcase!

I’ll keep you in the loop on this story as we get closer.

Bad news for the planet… great news for business?

On the Big Biz Show last week (click to view), host “Sully” Sullivan asked me to describe our market’s big picture.

I just quoted him this Bloomberg article:“drought and food shortages can mean big profit.”

Wow, that is cold.

But Global Warming really is the industry of the 21st century, with a “market size” that will easily go into the trillions.

And that’s our market.

Have a great week!
