Awards co-organizer Mandarin Environment stated: “The judges were impressed by OriginClear’s advanced water cleanup technology, Electro-Water Separation™ (EWS), which is based on electrochemistry and will tackle China’s most recalcitrant type of pollutants. Scalable, with a low operational cost, it will be incorporated as a modular add-on to existing water treatment sites in China or built as a standalone process flow.”

This year’s judges comprised a panel of five Chinese water treatment experts, including a professor from Tsing Hua University in Beijing and a top engineer from Siemens China. Winners were announced at the annual Awards Ceremony and Reception.

In its announcement of the award, Mandarin Environment also quoted Jean-Louis Kindler, President of OriginClear Technologies: “Winning this award is a strong endorsement and recognition of the attractiveness of our solution for the industrial wastewater treatment market in China. I want to thank everyone involved, especially the very impressive group of competitors who all deserve equal recognition for their solutions for China’s water and wastewater challenges.”

Co-organized by Mandarin Environment and BlueTech™ Research, the China BlueTech™ Awards recognizes the most innovative water and wastewater technology companies that exhibit exciting potential in the Chinese and international markets. Representing European, Israeli, and North American water and wastewater technologies, the full list of entrants included both small and large companies with solutions across industry submarkets.

OriginClear was selected for the innovation of its flagship Electro Water Separation™ with Advanced Oxidation (EWS:AOx) technology that cleans suspended organic matter, hydrocarbons as well as ammonia and other dissolved organic molecules that are often found in industrial wastewater streams.

OriginClear’s EWS:AOx has field references at oil & gas operations in Colorado, Texas and California and has successfully demonstrated its ability to remediate landfill leachate in Shenyang, China.

“Water is our most valuable and indispensable resource – and OriginClear has worked for years to preserve it and secure its sustainable future,” said Riggs Eckelberry, President and CEO of OriginClear, Inc. “Having our technology recognized by the acclaimed BlueTech Awards underscores the tremendous economic and environmental value it has in shaping the future of water treatment.”

Mandarin Environment concluded: “Building on the success of the awards, Mandarin Environment and BlueTech Research are already turning their attention to the 2017 competition, which will continue to offer international water and wastewater technology companies a platform for demonstrating readiness for the China market. Technology submissions for 2017 China BlueTech Awards will be accepted between November 1, 2016 and January 30, 2017. The Awards Reception will again take place at Aquatech China.”
