Artemis Project APEX Sustainability Prize

  1. 1. APEX Sustainability Prize<br />for Excellence in Water and Energy<br />
  2. 2. The Artemis Project Top 50 recognizes the advancements with potential for wide-scale success. This year, our 12-judge panel and the EPA identified companies within the Top 50 that are challenging the status quo with trailblazing solutions to long-ignored water problems.<br />The APEX Award recognizes nine innovators with sustainable business models and technologies transforming water management.<br />“The pioneers in water tech are focusing on the first markets where dramatic savings in water, energy and resources matter,” says Laura Shenkar, principal of the Artemis Project.<br />Water scarcity, ecosystem breakdown, and infrastructure decay demand far more than incremental improvements.<br />“Good companies offer economically viable solutions, but great companies offer solutions that last a lifetime and create sustainable value for their shareholders and partners,” says Rengajaran Ramesh of Wasserstein and Co.<br />We are excited to honor these nominees who aren’t just saving water. They’re also managing infrastructure, recovering energy and resources from waste, and preserving ecosystems.<br />
  3. 3. APEX Award Winners<br />(in alphabetical order)<br />APG-Neuros<br />Desalitech<br />Emefcy<br />HydroPoint<br />M2Renewables<br />Microvi<br />Ostara<br />SCFI<br />TaKaDu<br />
  4. 4. APG-Neuros’ Turbo Blower cuts up to 35% of energy consumption in wastewater treatment, compared with conventional technologies such as PD and centrifugal blowers, resulting in significant cost savings and reduced environmental impact.<br />Learn more<br />APG-Neuros<br />Blainville, Québec, Canada<br /><br />
  5. 5. Desalitech’s seawater desalination process reduces waste brine by more than 50% and energy use by 35%, thus reducing overall system cost by up to 20% compared with previous-generation, state-of-the-art desalination plants.<br />Learn more<br />Desalitech<br />Tel Aviv, Israel<br /><br />
  6. 6. Emefcy’sElectrogenic Bioreactor (EBR) technology recovers electric power from wastewater during treatment, generating 1.1kWh produced and saved per kg COD removed. The treatment cuts sludge waste by 80%, enabling plants to generate revenue selling energy and carbon credits.<br />Learn more<br />Emefcy<br />Caesaria Industrial Park, Israel<br /><br />
  7. 7. In 2010 alone, HydroPoint’sWeatherTRAK irrigation technology saved users more than 15 billion gallons of water, 62 million kilowatt hours of power, and 82 million pounds of CO2– while avoiding more than $137 million in water bills and other water-related expenses.<br />Learn more<br />HydroPoint Data Systems Inc.<br />Petaluma, CA, USA<br /><br />
  8. 8. The M2 Renewables MicroScreen filtration generates 16 MMBtu of feedstock energy value for every million gallons of waste-water processed. Their system is ideal for producing energy through gasification: in simulations it generated 250 KW on a 5 metric-ton-per-day gasifier.<br />Learn more<br />M2 Renewables<br />Lake Forest, CA, USA<br /><br />
  9. 9. Utilizing laser-sharp precision sourced from the biotech industry, Microvidegrades the most difficult pollutants in water to harmless products in a matter of moments – saving up to 70% cost and 80% of lifecycle energy costs compared to conventional.<br />Learn more<br />Microvi Biotech<br />Union City, CA, USA<br /><br />
  10. 10. Ostara harvests phosphorus from municipal waste, producing valuable fertilizer, saving up to $1,000,000 per year for waste treatment plants, and eliminating pollution that causes dead zones downstream.<br />Learn more<br />Ostara<br />Vancouver, BC, Canada<br /><br />
  11. 11. SCFI’s Aqua Critox process utilizes water and oxygen at elevated temperature and pressure to completely destroy the organic fraction of sewage sludge, with no harmful emissions to air or water. The process generates more energy than it consumes, and the SCFI unit is 95% efficient.<br />Learn more<br />SCFI<br />Cork, Ireland<br /><br />
  12. 12. TaKaDu'sSaaS identifies anomalies in piping networks, isolating small leaks and flagging contamination, preventing pollution and reducing water waste – thus decreasing the carbon footprint of the single most energy-intensive industry.<br />Learn more<br />TaKaDu<br />Yehud, Israel<br /><br />
