SAN LEANDRO, Calif.—November 7, 2016 — Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:ERII), the leader in pressure energy technology for industrial fluid flows, has been recognized as Manufacturer of the Year by the prestigious 2016 Texas Oil & Gas Awards. The Awards recognized the innovation of Energy Recovery’s VorTeqTM hydraulic pumping system.

The VorTeq system addresses a major pain point in hydraulic fracturing by re-routing abrasive proppants away from high pressure pumps. This allows the high pressure pumps to process only clean fluid, thereby extending their life and helping to prevent daily failures on frac sites.

Energy Recovery’s President and CEO Joel Gay stated, “We are thrilled to be recognized by such an influential award in the oil and gas industry. Energy Recovery has rapidly evolved from a small innovator to an engineering hub that draws some of the finest minds in oil and gas. We feel honored to have earned this kind of recognition among our peers, and look forward to announcing future disruptive applications of our Pressure Exchanger technology.”
