SPE Names Clean Technology Finalists

18 February 2010

Six Companies will present their Innovative ‘Clean’ Polymer and Plastics Technologies at Global Plastics Environmental Conference (GPEC), due to be held in early March 2010.

Each of the finalists are companies in the early stages of developing technologies that promote sustainability. They will make presentations before a judging panel made up of industry experts in sustainability and professionals from the investment community.

From the six finalists, two winning companies will be selected who will each receive cash prizes sponsored by Battelle.

The judging panel includes representatives from Battelle, Cascadia Capital, the law firm of Cooley Godward Kronish, Emerald Technology Ventures, Modern Plastics Worldwide, SPM Technologies, and the winner of the 2009 competition, FRX Polymers.

“The Clean Technology Business Forum & Competition provides a unique opportunity for companies to showcase their innovative clean technologies before an audience of industry leaders and prospective investors,” said Eric Koester, coordinator of the Clean Technology Business Forum and an attorney with Cooley Godward Kronish. “In turn these companies provide an exciting look at the future of the polymer and plastics industries.”

The six finalists in the Clean Technology competition are AmbientEco Group, Avantium, Fiberforge Corporation, Segetis, Soy Works Corporation and VAST Enterprises.
