On July 22nd, Engineering News-Record reported that OriginClear Inc. "has repurposed its machines to tackle flow-back water from the oil-and-gas industry." 

"The technology uses a filtration system called electro water separation (EWS), which employs electrochemistry to separate the flow-back water from the oil and chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing. In the same way, EWS can treat produced water from conventional oil and gas wells"
