Epuramat, a cleantech company specialized on wastewater treatment, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the GoingGreen Top 100 Winners. Inclusion in the GoingGreen 100 signifies major developments in the creation of new business opportunities in the green technology industries. Epuramat was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
Epuramat and the GoingGreen Top 100 Companies will be honored at GoingGreen West on September 14th - 16th, 2009 at Cavallo Point in Sausalito, California. This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on the most promising emerging green technologies and new entrepreneurial opportunities.
“The GoingGreen Top 100 winners have excelled in key strategic areas in the global clean energy technology markets,” said Tony Perkins, founder and CEO of AlwaysOn. “We congratulate them for their success in introducing new tools, services, and systems that are driving the next phase of greentech innovation and transforming the biggest industries on earth.”
The GoingGreen 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2009 list.
Epuramat received this award on the basis of its technology which radically simplifies the wastewater treatment process, resulting in smaller, simpler and easier to operate facilities such as the “Box4Water” container system. As part of the implementation of the new European Water Framework Guideline until 2015, which provides for strengthened requirements with regard to the treatment and disposal of communal and industrial waste water, Epuramat is addressing a market niche which is characterized by strong demand.
