Never before has clean energy technology been in such high demand. In fact, the development and movement toward clean energy technology has become a global phenomenon, proving to be a major force of economic growth.
Here are the top 10 CleanTech companies producing game-changing products:
The Vortisand, created by the Sonitec company, has already installed over 2,500 systems worldwide. According to its website, Vortisand “combines a cross-flow condition and sand filtration in the same vessel. The technology was designed for various applications such as HVAC side-stream filtration, process water, rain-harvesting water and more.”
What does this mean? Less energy, less water and fewer chemicals.
9. Velobility AG
Because the bicycle is a great means of transportation with a relatively low impact on the environment and a high impact on health and wellness, Velobility AG has a goal of developing and establishing next-generation Bike Sharing Solutions worldwide. To this end, Velobility AG has made major investments into developing new technology for bike sharing systems.
In their own words, “By providing a strong public cycling infrastructure, forward-thinking cities and sustainably-acting enterprises can play an active role in facing today’s environmental challenges. Let’s recapture the road and make people shine on a bike instead of hiding in a car.” Keeping pollutant-expelling vehicles off the road as often as possible is always a step in the right direction, and any company that can make this happen is one to watch.
8. Terramera PlantScience
Using the power of natural plant defenses and a unique innovative chemistry, Terramera PlantScience develops biopesticides for agriculture, bee health and public health usage. These biopesticides are safer and more effective than conventional chemical pesticides, which is better for the pest control industry and the environment as a whole. Terramera PlantScience’s product is especially beneficial because it can be used by large, leading agricultural corporations and individual consumers alike.
7. RayGen Resources
RayGen’s Concentrated Solar Photovoltaics (CSPV) solar generation system uses mirrors to concentrate natural light onto ultra-efficient photovoltaic cells. RayGen technology is 1,500 times more powerful than standard technology. The system uses clean energy with two times the efficiency of standard photovoltaics and, perhaps most impressive, does all of this at decreased cost.
MetGen is all about reducing energy consumption. Specifically, MetGen improves the pulp, paper, and biofuel industry by removing toxins from waste, reducing the impact of bleaching agents, and raising the efficiency in mills. This treatment saves money from unnecessary energy costs, reduces pollutants from unnecessary chemicals, and increases efficiency from expensive, redundant processes.
Measurabl has redefined and simplified sustainability reporting. According to its website, “Measurabl is software built to help you collect, report, and improve upon non-financial data so you can focus on what you do best.”
In short, Measurabl connects directly to corporate utilities and collects data on energy and water usage. Companies can then import this information right into their Energy Star account and eliminate manual entry errors.
