Finalists were announced last night for the Regional Cleantech Open Business Competition, which highlighted the broad scope of clean technologies and competencies of the Pacific Northwest. Winners included a water purification system, materials for cooling electronics in data centers and an all-electric commuter vehicle.
Given the dearth of clean water for much of the world's population and scarcity experts' predictions that "water is the new oil," the Cleantech Open has since inception included a category dedicated to water remediation. PURALYTICS of Portland, Oregon ascended to the National Finals with a light-activated nanocatalyst water purification system that eliminates a much wider array of contaminants including heavy metals and pharmaceuticals at a fraction of the cost of traditional systems. Developed in partnership with the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnology Institute, PURALYTICS was one of two Oregon companies to win last night.
From nanomaterials research at the University of Washington came finalist NANOCEL, with a microfluidic polymer cooling system for those electronics that make your laptop too hot for your lap.
