On-site industrial wastewater treatment provider Axine Water Technologies was recently named a 2020 Global Cleantech 100 company by Cleantech Group. The 2020 Global Cleantech 100 is the 11th edition of the respected annual guide to the leading companies and themes in sustainable innovation. It features the private, independent and for-profit companies best positioned to contribute to a more digitized, de-carbonized and resource-efficient industrial future.
“At Axine, we’ve created a new standard for treating industrial wastewater contaminated with toxic organics pollutants to address a global issue for the pharmaceutical, chemical and other manufacturing industries,” said Jonathan Rhone, CEO of Axine. “We’re deeply honored to be recognized in the Global Cleantech 100 as a company that is transforming the future of industrial wastewater.”
The list combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgements from nominations and insight from a global 80-member expert panel of leading investors and executives from corporations and industrials active in technology and innovation scouting. The expert panel broadly represents the global cleantech community and results in a list with a powerful base of respect and support from many important players within the cleantech innovation ecosystem.
“It feels right that our first list of the future-defining 2020s should see a continued strengthening in the representation of truly impactful and necessary innovations to transform our diets, to enable a more renewable-heavy energy system, and to capture and utilize the vast levels of CO2 we have been freely emitting for decades,” said Richard Youngman, CEO of Cleantech Group.
