Saltworks Presented as BC Innovation at GLOBE 2010
Saltworks Technologies recently showcased its innovative desalination technology at GLOBE 2010-Vancouver’s international green business conference.
The three-day trade fair is North America’s most important conference dedicated to the business of the environment. The fair took place March 24 to 26 at the Vancouver Convention Centre and featured presentations, demonstrations, and guest speakers from cutting edge clean-tech companies around the world.
The Saltworks team showcased its breakthrough technology in conjunction with the BC Innovation Council using a fully-functional portable desalination machine to show how the process works.
In addition to participating at the trade fair, the Saltworks management team led multiple tours at its facility and seawater pilot plant at the Port of Vancouver. Guests included Sustainable Development Technology Canada, the Singapore Public Utilities Board, and major engineering companies. Guests not only visited the plant but also witnessed it desalting seawater.
Ben Sparrow, CEO, said the plant is achieving “continuous flow of saltwater coming in and potable salt standard coming out.”
Saltworks is now preparing for another round of financing.
