WSJ honors university-created LLC with Innovation Award
Date:9/29/2010

HUNTSVILLE, TX -- A company founded by Sam Houston State University to manufacture, distribute and license its patented wastewater-treatment technology has been recognized for scientific innovation by the Wall Street Journal.

Active Water Sciences, a limited liability corporation in Palestine, Texas, was named in the Journal's Technology Innovation Awards competition, which sought out the most innovative problem-solving technology world-wide in 17 categories.

Sam Houston State University discovered the science and owns the patents and intellectual property associated with the water treatment system and is a majority owner of Active Water Sciences, along with the inventors, who are current and former university employees.

The award recognizes the commercialization of laboratory research and subsequent development that led to the creation of a portable, scalable self-contained wastewater-treatment system the Water Phoenix that can convert wastewater into effluent that meets U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards in less than 24 hours, producing little to no sludge.

Traditional bacterial-based systems, such as the common septic system, generally take several weeks or months to "clean" waste water to EPA standards and generally leave a 40 to 60 percent by-product of toxic sludge.

Scientists at Sam Houston State said its systems could be adapted to produce potable drinkable water with minor adaptations.

Sabin Holland, the director of the research and commercialization of the technology project at Sam Houston State, said laboratory research of the concept began about eight years ago.

The first units were purchased by the United States Army, built to the size of a standard shipping container and deployed to Afghanistan just a few months ago to support forward operating bases.

"The Army specified the size of a standard shipping container so they could easily transport the system
