Event showcases demonstration-scale system for cleaning hydraulic fracturing water

Scott Jenkins

OriginOil Inc. (Los Angeles, Calif.; www.originoil.com), developer of Electro Water Separation (EWS), the high-speed, chemical-free process to clean up large quantities of water, announced today that CLEAN-FRAC 1000, its new demonstration-scale hydraulic fracturing water-treatment system, was shown to successfully remove oil and contaminants at a showcase for media, public officials and prospective customers.

Held at the headquarters of OriginOil licensee, Industrial Systems Inc. (ISI) on Colorado’s Western Slope, the showcase featured the CLEAN-FRAC 1000 system, which is designed to process frac flowback and produced water at a rate of up to 1,000 barrels per day, to the exact purity levels that customers require.

CLEAN-FRAC integrates OriginOil’s EWS with a variety of “polishing” systems to deliver a wide range of purity levels that enable different reuse applications from re-injection into frac wells to potable drinking water. These systems include membranes, filters and resins.
