Berlin, 6 April 2009 – Epuramat has been declared a winner of Red Herring 100 Europe following the final selection round which took place in Berlin. This prize is awarded annually to the 100 best private technology firms in Europe.
The 200 finalists had to face the Red Herring jury in Berlin for two days, followed by an announcement of the 100 winners on Thursday. During the earlier pre-selection process, Red Herring's editorial team rigorously examined hundreds of private companies by way of a careful analysis of financial data and other criteria including quality of management and strategy implementation. The Red Herring lists, which contain the best private companies, are an important criterion used by industry experts to identify new and innovative technology companies.
Former winners such as Google, eBay and Skype were discovered early on by Red Herring editors, who identified these companies as leaders in changing the way we live and work.
Epuramat received this award on the basis of its “ExSep” revolutionary waste water treatment technology, which radically simplifies the waste water treatment process, resulting in smaller, simpler and easier to operate facilities such as the “Box4Water” container systems which can be implemented in the smallest of spaces. In addition, with its “Wastewater as Service” operator model, Epuramat has also developed an opportunity for industries and under-serviced communities to treat their waste water in a highly efficient, cost competitive and non labor-intensive manner. 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.
The entire Epuramat team is pleased about this important award. "It is a great honor to be declared a winner of Red Herring 100 Europe. It underlines our belief that our mission of making a contribution to the cleantech age is on the right path", says Epuramat CEO.
The Red Herring event was held from March 31 to April 2 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Berlin.
