Company to join Innovation Pavilion at WEFTEC

Spiral Water Technologies has received the Innovation Award for its proprietary Automatic Self Cleaning Filter. The award was presented by BlueTech Research at the BlueTech Forum in San Francisco and honors the most disruptive technology presented at the event.

Spiral Water was one of 11 companies short-listed for the Forum’s Innovation Awards and was selected by market intelligence experts for its likelihood to “transform the shape of the water industry of the future.” The annual BlueTech Forum is a gathering of water technology companies, entrepreneurs, investors, executives and thought leaders.

Each finalist presented a case study to conference delegates and BlueTech panelists. Spiral Water demonstrated how its automatic filter may be used by a food and beverage client. BlueTech Research’s CEO Paul O’Callaghan cited Spiral Water for “outperforming its rivals while cutting both maintenance and energy costs.”

Spiral Water was also winner of last year’s Technology Idol Award at the Global Water Awards in Athens, Greece, which recognizes early-stage companies. At the BlueTech Forum, Spiral Water competed with established companies in the water industry.

“We’re especially proud to show how our technology is working right now to solve problems and return investments across a huge range of applications and industries for both filtration and solids concentration,” said Spiral Water CEO Ashwin Gulati. “The BlueTech Award is a fantastic confirmation of that achievement.”

As winner of BlueTech’s Innovation Award, Spiral Water will be joining the Innovation Pavilion at the Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition & Conference (WEFTEC) in New Orleans this September.
