List highlights up-and-coming companies in cleantech innovation
Nanostone Water, Inc., a membrane solutions company with a portfolio of ceramic and polymeric membranes for water treatment and industrial process fluids, was named in the 2015 Global Cleantech 100 Ones to Watch list.
The Ones to Watch list seeks to highlight a group of up-and-coming companies who did not have enough market support to make the 2015 Global Cleantech 100 list itself, and who have never been on a previous Global Cleantech 100 list, but who carry pockets of support among key corporations, investors and Cleantech Group analysts within the Cleantech Group’s expert panel.
This year, a record number of nominations for the annual Global Cleantech 100 list were received: 6,900 distinct companies from 60 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 323 companies. Short-listed nominees were reviewed by Cleantech Group’s expert panel, resulting in the Ones to Watch list, in addition to annual the Global Cleanteh 100 list. To qualify for the both lists, companies must be independent, for-profit, cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.
