“This Global Cleantech 100 edition is remarkable for the number of businesses in it who represent solutions for some of the hardest of decarbonization challenges and those who are working on some of the critical materials issues coming our way, real soon,” said Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group. “We salute not only these 100 companies, but all the thousands beyond, who are fighting the good fight.”
Keith Wiggins, CEO, Econic Technologies said “It’s a great honour to be nominated for a second time, alongside other such pioneering companies. Econic is looking to lead the charge in transforming captured CO2 into valuable products. Right now we are focused on polyols for polyurethanes. You can find polyurethane products all around you; the foam in your mattress, in your car, components of your electronics. Next year will see two of our partners begin full scale production using our process, with further developments in the pipeline. We are excited to see where the technology can be taken and to bring to fruition the real opportunity we have to make a sizeable change to CO2 emissions.”
