EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoH2O, Inc., manufacturer of the most efficient and cost effective reverse osmosis (RO) membranes for seawater desalination, today announced that it has been chosen for the 2012 Artemis Top 50 Water Tech Listing™. This is the fourth consecutive year that NanoH2O has been named by the Artemis Project which promotes solutions to address global water challenges. This year's list was compiled by a jury that included experts from corporations such as Intel, Archer Daniels Midland, IBM, Ecolab and Syngenta as well as McKinsey, CH2M Hill, Carollo Engineers and Singapore's Public Utilities Board.
"The Artemis Top 50 is the water industry's benchmark for innovation that will matter. It identifies the new solutions that will meet the world's water challenges," stated Laura Shenkar, Chair of the Artemis Top 50™. "The Top 50 are some of the most promising start-ups in the emerging high tech wave in water."
"We are honored to be listed once again with other water sector innovators," said Jeff Green, CEO of NanoH2O, Inc. "Addressing water scarcity through reverse osmosis desalination has long been challenged by high energy costs. Our breakthrough nanocomposite membrane technology has gained rapid acceptance within the desalination industry because of its potential to decrease SWRO system energy consumption. Since their launch into the marketplace in April 2011, our QuantumFlux membranes have been installed in over 50 installations across thirty-three countries, representing more than 20 million gallons per day in cumulative capacity. We are grateful to be recognized by the Artemis Project in their efforts to highlight the most significant innovations in water purification technology."
