HydroVenturi has been recognised as one the UK’s 20 most promising clean technology firms and selected for a trade mission to California’s Silicon Valley later this month.
The trade mission will provide a platform to an international audience for the company, which won its place on the 2010 Clean and Cool Mission from more than 150 commercial applicants.
It was selected by Mission organisers the Technology Strategy Board, UK Trade and Investment and, key sponsors such as BP.
Hydroventuri’s Executive Chairman Harvey West said, “We’re naturally delighted that we’ve been chosen for this high-profile mission as the calibre of competitors was very high.
We’ve spent several years developing a suite of patented technologies that deal with major commercial and environmental concerns in the global water and clean energy sectors and this event will enable us to present these to investors and organisations operating worldwide.
Our product is unique in that it requires no electricity input and has no moving parts - we use a design that simply lets the laws of physics do all the work.
“We already have business links with the power and water sectors in the UK and USA and are looking at this trade mission as another step forward. We are in a high growth sector that is delivering innovative products for which there is rapidly increasing demand as the efforts to combat the effects of water pollution and climate change gather pace.”
