SAN FRANCISCO, June 15, 2016 -- Spiral Water Technologies, a developer of advanced filtration solutions for difficult-to-treat waters, has received the Innovation Award, presented by BlueTech Research at the BlueTech Forum held recently in San Francisco. This award honors the most disruptive technology presented at the event and also recognizes the business potential of Spiral Water’s proprietary Automatic Self Cleaning Filter.

Spiral Water was one of 11 companies short-listed for the Forum's Innovation Awards, and was selected by market intelligence experts for its likelihood to “transform the shape of the water industry of the future.” The annual BlueTech Forum is a gathering of the world’s leading water technology companies, entrepreneurs, investors, executives and thought-leaders.

Each finalist presented a case study to conference delegates and BlueTech panelists. Spiral Water demonstrated how its automatic filter delivered significant technological and business advantages for a food & beverage client. BlueTech Research’s CEO Paul O’Callaghan cited Spiral Water for "outperforming its rivals while cutting both maintenance and energy costs."

This award marks a rewarding 12 months for Spiral Water, winner of last year’s Technology Idol Award at the Global Water Awards in Athens, honoring innovative early-stage companies. At the BlueTech Forum, Spiral Water was competing head-to-head with established players in the water industry.

"We’re especially proud to show how our technology is working right now to solve problems and return investments across a huge range of applications and industries for both filtration and solids concentration,” said Spiral Water CEO Ashwin Gulati. “The BlueTech Award is a fantastic confirmation of that achievement."

As winner of BlueTech’s Innovation Award, Spiral Water will be joining the Innovation Pavillion at the Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition & Conference (WEFTEC) in New Orleans this September.
