OriginClear Launches Modular Water Treatment Division
July 19, 2018
Los Angeles, CA – July 19, 2018 – OriginClear Inc. (OTC/QB: OCLN), a leading provider of water treatment solutions, today announced Modular Water Systems (www.modularwater.com), its new division that offers a unique product line of prefabricated water treatment systems. Daniel “Dan” Early P.E. (Professional Engineer), heads the new division.Modular Water designs and delivers prefabricated wastewater treatment products to customers and end-users that have to clean their own wastewater. It uses Structurally Reinforced Thermoplastic (SRTP) materials to focus on developing water and wastewater collection, conveyance, and treatment systems that have high performance and sustainability.
Typical customers include schools, small communities, institutional facilities, real estate developments, factories, and industrial parks.
“According to the United States EPA, it will take a quarter trillion dollars to restore America’s decaying water infrastructure, and there’s no budget for that”, said Riggs Eckelberry, OriginClear CEO. “Water users are increasingly forced to treat their own wastewater on-site, at the point of use. This sets the stage for Modular Water.”
Riggs continued, “When you build a new school or community center, you’ll need a water treatment system. It must be rapidly deployed, compact, self-sufficient, highly durable and cost-effective. Dan’s patented inventions respond to this mandate.”

Dan Early has pioneered the use of heavy reinforced plastic materials to create modular “water-systems-in-a-box”. Not only is reinforced thermoplastic faster and cheaper to build, but it can have three times the lifespan, or more, compared with concrete-and-steel construction. His inventions have led to the patented Wastewater System & Method which OriginClear has licensed exclusively for the world.
In the words of Dan Early, “We believe our products set a de facto industry standard for performance and longevity. SRTP products are superior to typical concrete, steel and fiberglass construction for a myriad of reasons including durability, weight, life expectancy, corrosion resistance, water tightness, and ease of installation and maintenance. SRTP based products are in my view the superior choice, with an estimated minimum useful service life of 100 years or longer. The civil infrastructure world needs product offerings that will double or triple the normal life cycle of conventional materials and result in substantial reductions in life cycle operational costs.”
The new Modular Water Systems division plans to largely subcontract its manufacturing to OriginClear’s subsidiary, Progressive Water Treatment of McKinney, Texas, before developing its own, in-house facilities.
In a 2016 Water Online guest column, “The Water Revolution: Moving To A Decentralized System”, Riggs Eckelberry stated: “Instead of rebuilding our current infrastructure, we can equip water users to treat their own water with small, modular water treatment systems that can be built and installed locally. The opportunity is clear: move to a decentralized structure.”
