Champaign, Illinois, May 24th, 2018 – Governor’s Export Award was presented to EP Purification and accepted by Dr. Sung-Jin Park on May 24th for New Exporter

The Governor’s Export Awards is Illinois’ highest recognition of export achievement. EP Purification, Inc. is now firmly seated as a producer with this recognition of such a prestigious accomplishment

“Exports are a vital component of our economy and an important factor for continued economic growth. Illinois takes great pride in its export successes, which is why every year we recognize small and medium-sized businesses and organizations that work to promote export awareness for Illinois’ products and services,” said Lt.

Dr. Sung-Jin Park (Co-founder and Global Technology Leader) firmly believes in the international trade missions as an excellent forum for introducing the EP Purification Microplasma Ozone technology. Currently EP Purification holds the patent on the only product featuring the Microplasma chip design.  EP Purification is providing clean air and water treatment solutions on a global basis – including a recent humanitarian mission to Central Africa to provide safe drinking water to the poor underdeveloped areas of Tanzania and Kenya.
