Winners of the Innovate@IWS competition:
New Sky Energy
New Sky’s SulfurCycle-R (SCR) process is a breakthrough gas sweetening technology that dramatically lowers the cost of H2S treatment, providing wastewater plants and landfills strong economic incentives to pursue renewable natural gas projects.
Salttech has developed the solution for treating high salinity polluted water in a single step process simply separating H2O from all the salts and other components in the influent. Salttech’s DyVaR technology provides the first Zero Liquid Discharge process (ZLD) that combines FULL water recovery with low cost operation.
Waterblade is a new and proven technology that at least halves the water consumption of your basin tap by taking a trickle of water and using its surface tension to spread it into a paper-thin sheet of water that gives a remarkably effective, efficient and luxurious hand wash.
