CAESAREA, Israel, May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Emefcy today announced that it has been chosen by The Artemis Project(TM) as a Top 50 Water Companies Competition winner.
"The Artemis Top 50 is the water industry's benchmark for recognizing innovation. It identifies the entrepreneurs that are applying technology to meet the world's water challenges," noted Laura Shenkar, principal at The Artemis Project. "We are glad to have Emefcy as one of the leading innovative companies offering the most promising technologies coming onto the market".
"We are excited to be chosen as a market and technology leader addressing the water and energy challenges the world is facing" said Mr. Eytan Levy, CEO and co-founder of Emefcy. Mr. Levy added "Emefcy is first to invent a cost effective, scalable and sustainable Electrogenic Bioreactor (EBR) while focusing on commercializing scientific research and providing a product that is both sustainable and cost effective".
The EBR treats wastewater and produces green electricity as a byproduct. The EBR functions as a battery which uses wastewater as fuel. It is ideal for treating industrial wastewater with high concentration of organic substance.
Emefcy was founded in Israel in 2008 with the vision of fundamentally changing the economics of wastewater treatment by generating instead of consuming energy, utilizing electrogenic bacteria to produce electricity from wastewater while treating the water. Emefcy turns the wastewater treatment facility from a cost center to a profit center while reducing its carbon foot print. For more information visit: http://www.emefcy.com
