Purfresh Named Global Cleantech 100 Company for Fourth Consecutive Year
List Recognizes the Top Private Companies in Clean Technology
Menlo Park, Calif. —Oct. 2, 2012—Purfresh, Inc., the industry leader of active atmosphere and supply chain management technologies that optimize the quality of fresh produce as it moves around the world, today announced that it was named in the prestigious 2012 Global Cleantech 100, produced by Cleantech Group, a leading global research and advisory firm focused on innovation in energy and the environment.
The Global Cleantech 100 list is unique in the sector because it highlights the promise of private clean technology companies from all around the world, focusing on those companies which the players in the market feel are currently the most likely to make the most significant market impact over the next 5-10 years.
"It is a significant honor that Purfresh has been selected as one of the 100 most promising cleantech companies in the world for the fourth consecutive year," said Dr. Brian Westcott, president and CEO of Purfresh. "Being named to this prestigious list is a reflection of our continued commitment and dedication to providing the agricultural industry with the latest technology that naturally, and effectively, protects the quality of fresh produce, and other high value cargo, as it moves around the world via ocean transit."
The list is derived from Cleantech Group's own data and research combined with the weighted qualitative judgments of hundreds of nominations and the viewpoints of a global panel of 75 cleantech experts, drawn principally from leading financial investors in Asia, Europe and North America, and from representatives of multi-national corporations. 8,285 companies were nominated this year from 85 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 236 companies presented to the expert panel for final input. The end result was 100 companies from 13 countries.
"The Global Cleantech 100 is a natural extension of our companywide mission to help corporations, investors and financiers, professional service firms and governmental agencies connect with global cleantech innovation," said Sheeraz Haji, Cleantech Group CEO. "This report celebrates the best in innovation and is the industry standard on gauging where cleantech innovation is headed next."
