About the Challenge
Colorado Cleantech Industries Association (CCIA) is partnering with leading oil and natural gas companies to create the inaugural Oil & Gas Cleantech Challenge. – Read the Denver Business Journal’s feature here. -
The Oil and Gas Cleantech Challenge focuses on connecting clean technology solutions to the oil and natural gas industry. As the oil and natural gas industry has expanded, environmental issues and resource usage and quality concerns have ensued. Through the Challenge, we propose to work with the oil and natural gas industry to help find technology solutions for these pressing concerns.

Do You Have What We Are Looking For?
The Oil and Gas Cleantech Challenge: A Product Innovation Showcase and its partners would like to see:
- Innovative Products and Technologies
- Post Prototype
- Clean Technologies
Specific clean technology sectors include:
AIR (including but not limited to): control/reduction/detection of methane emissions from valves, piping and vented sources; control of flashing emissions from tanks, improved pressure relief devices and new designs to contain flashing emissions; smokeless burners for flash emissions combustion; flare control and flare efficiency improvements; remote sensing; non-emitting field equipment such as chemical pumps.
WATER (including but not limited to): real-time, efficient sampling and analysis; beneficial re-use of produced water including recycling; recycling of flowback water (gel fracs); new disposal methods; minimization of water volumes; well bore integrity monitoring systems.
REMOTE/DISTRIBUTED POWER (including but not limited to): rechargeable sources including batteries, fuel cells; modular combined heat and power; micro/islanded grid technology; field gas powered equipment.
POWER MANAGEMENT (including but not limited to): more energy efficient and responsive natural gas engines; efficient and clean generators; more efficient duel fuel (diesel and natural gas) engines that coordinate operations to provide power and response.
MATERIALS (including but not limited to): novel materials comprised of no or fewer hazardous chemicals; new products made from captured CO2.
OTHER (including but not limited to): limiting water and energy usage in operational divisions; mitigating engine noise pollution; dust control; information technology applications that limit environmental impact.
