EnterpriseWorks startup EP Purification was quoted in a Chicago Blue Sky innovation story about the intersection of the tech world and the water crisis in Flint, Mich. 

“Sung-Jin Park, chief technology officer of EP Purification, a startup based at the Research Park at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, said … (if )startups with budding technologies join forces, water contamination problems can be solved more quickly and cheaply.
