Interview with Jeff Green, NanoH2O

Abstract:
We recently bumped into Jeff Green, CEO of Los Angeles-based NanoH2O, an advanced materials startup focused on using nanotechnology for water desalinization, the use of filtering technology to remove salt from the oceans to supply clean drinking water. NanoH2O was venture funded by Khosla Ventures. Jeff was one of the founders of both Stamps.com and Archive, Inc. We quickly caught up with Jeff about the company at the recent Entretech Greentech 2008 conference in Pasadena.

What's NanoH2O up to?

Jeff Green: NanoH2O has developed a reverse osmosis membrane using nanotechnology. The focus of the company is to make these membranes much more productive than they are today. The more productive the membrane, the lower the energy consumption of the desalinization process, and you can also build much smaller plants, due to the increased capacity and production.
