CAESAREA, Israel, October 13, 2010 - Emefcy Limited, a global leader in Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC)
implementation for wastewater treatment, today announced it has been named in
the prestigious 2010 Global Cleantech 100, produced by the Cleantech Group.
The list is produced as part of the Global Cleantech 100 program, run in
collaboration with the Guardian News.
Emefcy's MEGAWATTER(TM), a Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) system, generates
electricity or hydrogen by harnessing the energy inherent in the organic
compounds in wastewater and uses it as fuel.
The Global Cleantech 100 is unique as it highlights the most promising
private clean technology companies, those companies which are the most likely
to make the most significant market impact over the next 5-10 years, in the
eyes of the world's cleantech experts.
The answer is derived by the Cleantech Group, who draws on its own data
and research, and combines it with the weighted qualitative judgments of both
hundreds of cleantech industry insiders, and the viewpoints of a 60-strong,
international expert panel.
"The second Global Cleantech 100 shines a spotlight on which companies
and which technology areas the global innovation community is currently most
excited about, from a commercial standpoint," said Richard Youngman, MD,
Europe & VP, Global Research at Cleantech Group
Emefcy stands out as a promising startup company recognized by Global
Water Intelligence as one of 10 technologies that will save the world. CNET
acknowledged Emefcy as one of the 5 companies that will contribute to the
reduction of the world dependence on fossil fuel. Sustainable World Capital
described Emefcy as a Cleantech startup that one should keep its eyes on and
Artemis -BlueTech Summit qualified Emefcy as a top 50 water technology
"We are honoured to be one of the Global Cleantech 100. The growing
interest in Emefcy's breakthrough technology enhances our confidence in
Emefcy's ability to revolutionize the energy economy of wastewater treatment
by utilizing the organic contamination in wastewater as a new source of
renewable energy," said Eytan Levy, CEO at Emefcy
Emefcy was founded in 2008 with a vision of fundamentally changing the
economics of wastewater treatment. The systems developed by Emefcy produce
electricity or hydrogen directly from the treatment of different types of
wastewater. They also provide a unique treatment solution for heavily loaded
organic wastewater with high salinity, which existing treatment technologies
fail to treat efficiently.
