Rio Rancho, N.M., Mayor Applauds Recent Recognition for MIOX Corp.

MIOX named Global Cleantech 100 company

Tom Swisstack, mayor of Rio Rancho, N.M., applauded the recognition of New Mexico-based MIOX Corporation, which recently was named a Global Cleantech 100 company by Guardian News and Media and Cleantech Group LLC. The Global Cleantech 100 highlights what it believe to be the most promising private clean technology companies around the world.

"MIOX is deserving of this recognition, as their technology has brought added safety to our water operations and residents," Swisstack said.

The city of Rio Rancho has been utilizing MIOX since 2006 and currently has 11 of their systems installed. Using MIOX on-site generation water disinfection systems at city wells has replaced the need for chlorine gas for water disinfection, creating a safer and greener disinfection process for the city and its residents, the City said.

The technology used in MIOX systems disinfects drinking water on-site and on-demand using only salt, water and power, eliminating the need to purchase, transport and store chemicals in the process of providing affordable and safe water, according to the City.

The list of 100 was compiled from approximately 3,500 nominations.
