OriginOil Breakthrough Increases Electro Flotation Technology Effectiveness by More Than 50%

Online PR News – 16-December-2014 – New Yrok, NY – New electrode design can be adapted to existing flotation installations for

greater effectiveness in large-scale applications

OriginOil Inc. (OTC/QB: OOIL), developer of Electro Water Separation(TM) (EWS),

the high-speed, chemical-free process to clean up large quantities of water,

announced today a significant breakthrough in electrode design for its second-stage

electro flotation process. OriginOil calculates this design increases extraction

effectiveness by 54% over earlier plate designs, for the same amount of power

consumption.

"With this design, electro flotation becomes extremely energy-efficient," said

Michael Green, Chief Technology Officer at OriginOil licensee, E3 Services and

Solutions. "I believe that this latest technology will give us a major advantage over

existing Dissolved Air Flotation installations, especially if it can be retrofitted into

existing treatment tanks."

Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) is used in both oil & gas and waste markets to extract

suspended solids in very large installations. It plays in a sedimentation &

centrifugation equipment market estimated to grow to more than $7 billion

worldwide. Generating air bubbles at a large scale is relatively energy-intensive and

requires the extensive use of chemicals. With this latest innovation, OriginOil's EWS

further increases the advantage of electro flotation over dissolved air flotation,

while enabling retrofits into existing installations.

OriginOil recently filed an application for a utility patent covering this innovation:

"System for Removal of Suspended Solids and Disinfection of Water." The inventor

was Bill Charneski, President of OriginOil's Oil & Gas division.

"Bill came up with this brilliant idea, which we implemented beginning with our

Colorado rollout," said Nicholas Eckelberry, OriginOil co-founder and Chief Research

Officer. "This is a module that can be placed anywhere within a tank, getting away

from the fixed plates typical of traditional electro flotation designs. This is a very

important patent as it has the possibility of altering the speed and efficiency of

processing fluids for all segments of the water processing industry."

The new design optimizes the placement of electrodes within flotation tanks to

lower energy consumption and improve particle recovery at higher flow rates. It

increases effective contact area and improves the inter-electrode gap for increased

bubble generation with the same power settings. Tests published in July showed

that energy usage with this new technology can average 0.22 kWh per barrel of

water processed, which amounts to about $0.03 per barrel at $0.15 per kWh.

Results from on-site testing of a pilot system in Colorado and Texas also

demonstrated that water turbidity, suspended solids and oil in water were reduced

by as much as 99 percent.

About OriginOil Inc.

OriginOil has developed a breakthrough water cleanup technology for the oil & gas,

algae and other water-intensive industries. Unlike other technologies, the

company's patent-pending Electro Water Separation(TM) process rapidly and

efficiently removes organic material from large quantities of water without the need

for chemicals. For the oil & gas industry, OriginOil is helping clean up produced

water and recycle fracking water to reduce harm to the environment and lower

costs. For the emerging algae industry, OriginOil is making large-scale harvest

possible. And in aquaculture, OriginOil is helping improve yields and making

seafood healthier by dramatically reducing the levels of toxic ammonia and bacteria

in water. For a world short on clean water, OriginOil is the lower-cost and cleaner

answer. To learn more about OriginOil(R), please visit our website at
