GEN 2 Lands in LA

From: Riggs Eckelberry
Los Angeles, August 4, 2014

Good morning!

Last week I told you about our GEN 2 technology, which could clean more than 10,000 barrels of oil- and chemical-laden frack water each day.

That’s nearly half a million gallons of oily, dirty water every single day.

It’s what the oil industry wants to see, and it will all fit into a 40-foot container.

Last Friday, the double-length GEN 2 module arrived from our partner ISI in Colorado.

Gen2aOriginOil’s 16-foot GEN 2 electro-flotation module arrives from Colorado, painted “OriginOil Green”…

You can see here how two of these modules will sit side by side in a large container and still leave room for machinery and personnel.

And there you have it, up to a half million gallons of water treated every single day.

The rollout team

Meet the team that will roll out this technology commercially.

  • Bill Charneski, right, is the President of OriginOil Oil and Gas.
    He is our “man on the spot” with the petroleum industry.
  • Jean-Louis Kindler, left, handles our petroleum business in Asia.
    And he is responsible for the rest of our blue-tech business worldwide!


Get used to this new term.

Blue-Tech is a half-trillion dollar industry – and growing; and OriginOil is right at the center of it with a critical, technology for cleaning and reuse.

As Delta’s Sky Magazine put it in its July issue,

As the world’s population balloons — putting more stress on an already shrinking (and often polluted) fresh H2O supply — water dependent businesses of all stripes are turning to cutting-edge products from “blue-tech companies” worldwide.

Some analysts, including Global Water Intelligence, value this market at nearly $500 billion and growing.

Fresh water might not be the new oil, as T. Boone Pickens once argued, but it’s equally in demand and starting a boom of its own.
