CCIA’s popular cleantech challenges continue with the third annual Mining Cleantech Challenge on March 21, 2019, in Denver at the Governor’s Residence.
We’re proud of this popular program, which connects clean energy and technology companies directly with mining industry representatives. It is our pleasure to introduce you to the presenting companies, who made it through a rigorous vetting process to reach this point:
AquaFlex Holdings utilizes reusable open-cell sorbent technology (biodegradable) capable of removing oil, contaminants, heavy metals and bacteria from water.
Big Blue Technologies
Big Blue Technologies produces magnesium metal from primary ore using 60% less energy than the dominant incumbent process.
Bishop Water Technologies
Bishop Water Technologies’s BioCordTM Reactor is a biological (attached growth) treatment technology for energy- and cost-efficient nitrogen removal from waste streams.
Cool Planet produces Engineered Biocarbon™ technology, the first scale-able, biochar-based, soil health technology that adds value across multiple industry sectors.
dynaCERT Inc./H2 Tek
dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ turns distilled water into H2 and O2 gases on-demand and introduces these gases directly to diesel engines’ air intakes.
Earth Alive Clean Technologies
The first and only microbial dust control technology that is non-hazmat, 100% organic and has biodegradable properties, Earth Alive Clean Technologies’s EA1™ generates a biosurfactant and creates a second layer in the road bed, efficiently controlling dust helping to save more than 90% in water consumption.
GHGSat uses its own satellites to monitor methane emissions from industrial facilities around the world.
Librimind is an AI-driven software platform which helps mining companies to meet production targets safely and sustainably.
Pecos Wind Power
Pecos Wind Power’s 85kW distributed wind turbine, the PW85, will be the wind industry’s most cost-effective mid-scale wind turbine for remote off-grid applications, on-grid behind-the-meter applications, and agricultural operations.
Rail-Veyor is a disruptive technology that uses a light rail solution to move anything.
SiteSee – powered by Ramboll
SiteSee leverages machine learning to extract insights from drone collected imagery data, helping the mining industry understand site conditions, reduce uncertainty, and efficiently restore mine sites.
Swirltex Inc produces a portable, small-footprint buoyancy-based membrane wastewater filtration innovation.
Congratulations and best of luck next week, where these lucky companies will be competing for the top $5,000 prize!
