Ecosphere Launches New Subsidiaries To Deploy Ozonix(R) Water Treatment Technology Across Multiple Industries

Stocks in this article: ESPH

STUART, Fla., Oct. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ecosphere Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:ESPH), a water engineering, technology licensing and innovative U.S. manufacturing company, today announced that it has established a number of new subsidiaries that have been granted exclusive global field-of-use licenses to deploy its patented Ozonix ® water treatment technology in specific markets. Ecosphere created its first subsidiary, Ecosphere Energy Services, LLC (now Fidelity National Environmental Solutions, LLC or "FNES"), in 2009 to establish a market for Ozonix ® in energy applications and will continue to use this successful model to license and monetize its intellectual property in other industries.

Ecosphere has established subsidiaries for six priority industries and has begun exploring strategic relationships for all six. As previously announced this year, Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc., a subsidiary of Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services Inc. (NYSE:LTS), has been retained by the Company as its investment banker and will assist the Company in developing strategic opportunities for these new markets. The new subsidiaries are:

  • Ecosphere Agriculture, LLC
  • Ecosphere Food & Beverage, LLC
  • Ecosphere Industrial, LLC
  • Ecosphere Marine, LLC
  • Ecosphere Mining, LLC
  • Ecosphere Municipal, LLC

"From an intellectual property standpoint, Ecosphere holds a dominant position in combining multiple advanced oxidation technologies to treat water across a wide range of industries and applications," stated Dean Becker, Intellectual Property Strategist and Director of Ecosphere Technologies. "Following the successful execution of the FNES business focused on the oil & gas industry, the replication of this proven intellectual property licensing model of granting an exclusive Ozonix ® field of use license to an industry-specific subsidiary is an ideal approach to maximizing value for our shareholders."

Becker continued, "We have been studying the various markets where access to and treatment of large volumes of water is most needed and have concluded that seeking strategic partners in mining, agriculture, food and beverage, industrial, marine and municipal wastewater treatment will put Ecosphere in the best position to successfully deploy its patented and proven Ozonix ® technology across the global water treatment market."

"Since the formation of Ecosphere Energy Services (now Fidelity National Environmental Solutions) in 2009, Ecosphere's Ozonix ® technology has enabled oil and gas customers to treat, recycle and reuse over 3 billion gallons of water on more than 800 oil and natural gas wells, protecting more than $4 billion worth of well assets, and generating over $65 million in revenue for its shareholders," said Dennis McGuire, Chairman and CEO of Ecosphere Technologies. "We have proven that Ozonix ® can be used to cost-effectively replace toxic liquid chemicals in the oil and gas fracturing industry and are now focused on bringing Ozonix ® to a wide variety of additional industrial markets to continue to reduce water treatment costs and preserve vital water resources."
