So when businesses or cities start facing water shortages or a lack of infrastructure - what are you supposed to do? Riggs Eckelberry, CEO of OriginClear joins us for this week’s episode to discuss the many lucrative opportunities within the water industry, and how OriginClear is taking the plunge.
