Riggs Eckelberry is the founder and CEO of the water technology company, OriginClear, which is delivering water solutions for industrial customers worldwide. OriginClear has developed and licensed an invention that treats industrial and agricultural waste water with very little energy, and no chemicals. Industrial users can treat theirwater right where they use it, using prepackaged “point of use” water treatment systems that have a life cycle of up to 100 years or more.
Riggs is driving the disruption of the trillion-dollar big water industry that has fallen behind the times and is affecting the health of millions. Our billion-dollar centralized water systems aren’t coping with demand, and water quality is getting worse, but the solution is for businesses to do their own water treatment, using modular, prefabricated systems that are trucked right on site. They get better water quality,lower rates through recycling, and even improved environmental grades. Ten years after launching public company OriginClear, Riggs and his team are offering those truck-in-place modular systems in the USA, while licensees are building products internationallyusing OriginClear’s low-energy, chemical-free innovation.
