Waterless sanitization at light speed
Category: Agriculture–Water–Waste | Region: Western
CEO: Alex Farren | CTO: Noah Bareket
Elevator pitch: BlueMorph LLC manufactures units that use UVC light to replace chemicals and water used to sanitize the tanks and containers used in the food and beverage industry. Instead of water-based sanitizing chemicals, we use UVC lights to kill germs in empty tanks and containers being sanitized.
How we make a difference: Worldwide, ground water is being depleted. Agriculture is being heavily impacted especially in California’s central valley. Sanitization requires a vast amount of water and generates large amounts of wastewater. By eliminating water used in sanitization by at least half we can have a dramatic impact of local water tables throughout the world in areas suffering from water restrictions and drought.
If we win? It will help hugely through money to expand sales and marketing teams. More importantly, the expertise and networking made available by CTO will further accelerate the development of our business through the huge amount of experience offered.
Cleantech Open anecdote: The presentations in the Western Region awards ceremony were very inspirational, especially the company that recycles plastics.
