Top 50 Most Innovative Water Technologies & Oregon Greywater Gadgetry

Water Online posted this article about the Artemis Project... *a boutique consulting practice dedicated to helping companies thrive in a world of increasing water scarcity, has announced the 2011 Artemis Project Top 50 award honorees. The Top 50 identifies the most promising companies that are applying innovation in the market to address today's dire water challenges*. 

The gallery of posters of the winners can be viewed here.

Culled from over 200 applications — a 30 percent increase from 2010 — the companies named to the 2011 list are applying innovative technologies to provide more sustainable water management. They are helping to manage infrastructure, recover valuable resources from waste, and preserve natural ecosystems. They work in fields such as energy-efficient wastewater treatment, smart grid water management, biosolids conversion to energy, pollutant biodegradation, and reverse osmosis desalination.

And the Oregon-based winner?

Puralytics is not new to winning prizes. They were recognized in 2010 and were listed as one of the Top 15 Greywater Gadgets by the Rainbow Water Coalition!
