NanoH2O Wins Four Prestigious Awards in Second Half of 2010

El Segundo, CA | Posted on January 6th, 2011

NanoH2O, a global provider of reverse osmosis (RO) membranes for desalination, was the recipient of four distinguished awards in the second half of 2010 for its innovation that leverages nanotechnology to significantly lower the cost of desalination. In less than six months, NanoH2O was selected by The Artemis Project™ as a Top 50 Water Company, won The Wall Street Journal 2010 Technology Innovation Award, was recognized as a 2010 Global Cleantech 100 and was named a finalist in the Los Angeles Business Journal 2010 Patrick Soon-Shiong Innovation Award.

In June, NanoH2O was selected as a winner of The Artemis Project ™ 2010 Top 50 Water Companies Competition. Distinguished as the only RO membrane manufacturer to make the list, NanoH2O was chosen by a panel of industry experts based on four criteria: technology, intellectual property and know-how, team and market potential. In 2009, NanoH2O was ranked fourth among the Artemis Top 50 Water Companies.

In September, NanoH2O won the prestigious Wall Street Journal 2010 Technology Innovation Award in the environment category. The award honored NanoH2O for its innovative membrane technology designed to significantly reduce the amount of energy required to desalinate seawater. In the award's 10th year, The Wall Street Journal received nearly 600 nominations from 30 countries.

In October, NanoH2O was recognized for the second straight year in the 2010 Global Cleantech 100. Produced by the Cleantech Group in collaboration with the Guardian, the list highlights 100 of the world's most promising private cleantech companies predicted to make a significant market impact in the next five to 10 years. NanoH2O was selected from 4,616 nominations from 50 countries by an international panel of 60 cleantech experts.

In November, NanoH2O was honored for innovation in water purification technology by the Los Angeles Business Journal 2010 Patrick Soon-Shiong Innovation Award. NanoH2O was selected as one of the fifteen finalists from thousands of companies nominated within the Los Angeles area. The award honors cutting-edge companies for their work in enhancing the region's competitiveness through innovation.

"These awards are a testament to NanoH2O's achievements in commercializing nanocomposite reverse osmosis membranes and the strong momentum generated by introducing the technology into the desalination marketplace," said Jeff Green, CEO of NanoH2O. "We have commercially demonstrated an advanced solution that dramatically improves the economics of desalination. Our continued success is a direct result of our talented team and commitment to providing innovative and high-caliber products."
