New York, 04 April 2011 – Bloomberg New Energy Finance today announced Epuramat as a 2011 New Energy Pioneer. The Bloomberg New Energy Finance Pioneer program named in total ten selected corporations from all over the world that develop cutting-edge clean technology innovations. The four-day event takes place in New York.
In its second year, the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Pioneers program identifies companies from across the world that are providing significant contributions to clean technology and innovation. A panel of industry experts, led by Bloomberg New Energy Finance technology specialists, chose the honorees by assessing them against three criteria: potential scale, innovation and momentum.
This year’s winners represent a broad range of industries including bioenergy, energy smart technologies, water and solar. Each of the New Energy Pioneers has worked to develop unique technologies and has demonstrated the potential for these technologies to be competitive in the marketplace and implemented on a large scale.
„We are delighted that Epuramat has been selected as one of ten Bloomberg New Energy Pioneers worldwide. This is a great recognition of our company’s achievements in the field of highly efficient water purification. With the containerized Box4Water we are offering the most compact water treatment system available on the market today”, said Bogdan Serban, CEO of Epuramat.
Epuramat provides systems for the treatment of municipal wastewater and industrial process water. The patented ExSep® technology enables industrial companies to re-process and re-use water with limited energy and chemical demand. This reduces fresh water needs and wastewater fees. Furthermore, Epuramat is currently performing oil water separation tests in a demonstration plant, and expects a boost in demand following recent tests conducted on behalf on its clients.
"The panel chose these companies because we feel they have the potential to change the energy landscape in a very significant way," said Michael Liebreich, Summit chairman and head of Bloomberg New Energy Finance. "In this fast-evolving sector, the Pioneers could play a major role in the world's transition to a lower carbon energy system."
Other winners include BrightSource Energy, eMeter, Green Biologics, Metabolix, On-Ramp Wireless, Redwood Systems, SAGE Electrochromics, TaKaDu and Winafrique.
