OriginClear to work with UltraEpur

OriginClear, a US-based company that provides water treatment solutions, has responded to EU-level water infrastructure directives by African governments by working with France-based engineering company UltraEpur.

UltraEpur founderand principal Thierry Vignal said: "We identified OriginClear's EWS: AOx as a perfectly complementary upstream treatment solution for our filtration systems.

"We have already integrated OriginClear into our planned pilot system for an Algerian industrial site that must meet stringent new water regulations effluents that exceed 4000 m³ per day (or more than one million gallons daily)."

The company stated that it is not relying on government funding for its commercial activities and development of the country's water supply system is a priority set by the Algerian government in its new five-year plan.

OriginClear Technologies president Jean-Louis Kindler said:"UltraEpur contacted us to help rapidly clear up contaminated industrial water, beginning in Algeria, where the government intends to upgrade to developed-world water standards rapidly.

"We have since entered a technology license agreement, and UltraEpur purchased a laboratory demonstration unit, which it plans to exhibit at the SIEE Pollutec trade show in Algiers in February."

OriginClear provides systems and services to treat water in various industries, such as municipal, pharmaceutical, industrial, and oil & gas sectors.
