Los Angeles – January 20, 2016 – OriginClear Inc. (OTC/QB: OOIL), a leading provider of water treatment solutions, has been named an Energy Innovation Pioneer by IHS, the leading source for insight, analytics and expertise in critical areas that shape today’s business landscape. The company will be featured at CERAWeek, a leading energy industry event held in Houston from February 22 – 26, 2016. OriginClear was selected for its role in transforming the energy future with an innovative technology for industrial water management.

OriginClear Technologies President Jean-Louis “JL” Kindler will be joining eleven other Energy Innovation Pioneers to discuss the impact of new technologies on the future of energy. He will speak at the Water and Energy Innovation Pioneer Expert Briefing on Tuesday, February 23, at 5:30 p.m.

“OriginClear was selected to be an Energy Innovation Pioneer because of their unique approach to technology development and deployment in the industry,” said Carolyn Seto, analyst at IHS Energy. “While it is clear that the water-energy nexus will be a critical issue in the coming decade, producers need to manage costs in this current low oil price environment. OriginClear provides a technology that aims to address both the short term and long term challenges facing the energy industry.”

“OriginClear is building best-in-class water technology solutions and a network of high-quality water service companies to serve the energy industry,” said Mr. Kindler. “We are honored to be recognized as a 2016 Pioneer and look forward to discussing how clean water helps create the future of energy at the February conference.”

IHS energy experts select promising energy technology companies for the CERAWeek Energy Innovation Pioneers based on creativity, feasibility of plan, scalability of technology and leadership team. OriginClear was selected for the innovation of its flagship technology Electro Water Separation (EWS) that cleans produced and frack water at oil and gas operations. OriginClear has deployed its proprietary EWS process at oil & gas operations in Colorado, Texas and California.

The Energy Innovation Pioneers are being recognized at this week’s CERAWeek conference, that draws more than 2,000 executives and other thought leaders from the global energy industry to discuss policy, markets and technologies, as well as environmental and climate concerns.
