NanoH2O, Inc. Selected by The Artemis Project™ as a 2011 Top 50 Water Company: NanoH2O only reverse-osmosis company recognized by The Artemis Project two years running

El Segundo, CA | Posted on May 27th, 2011

"The Artemis Top 50 is the water industry's benchmark for recognizing innovation that will matter. It identifies the entrepreneurs that are applying technology to meet the world's water challenges," noted Laura Shenkar, principal at The Artemis Project. "Water tech is quickly becoming an engine for economic development and job growth. With these awards, we strive to identify the companies offering the most promising technologies coming onto the market."

"We are honored to be the only reverse osmosis membrane company recognized by the Artemis Project for the second year in a row," said Jeff Green, CEO of NanoH2O, Inc. "Addressing water scarcity through reverse osmosis desalination has long been challenged by high energy costs. Our patent-pending technology, which encapsulates benign nanoparticles into industry-proven polymer membrane material, significantly improves RO membrane efficiency and lowers energy consumption. With the recently announced commercial launch of our membrane technology, we are very optimistic about the potential impact of our technology on the overall desalination industry. We are grateful to be part of the Artemis Top 50 and to be associated with the Artemis Project as they promote solutions to address global water challenges."
