The application evaluates companies and their flagship products from three perspectives:

•  Technology: Both intellectual property and know-how

In order to rank the most promising approaches to the different water resource challenges, the questionnaire asks you to choose the underlying science and engineering behind your solution.  Many of the most important products that are emerging into the market bring several innovations together. The questionnaire provides you with an option of choosing a secondary as well as a primary category.

•  Application: Product design for efficient and reliable performance in the field

The application requests a quantitative measurement of the costs and benefits of the company’s solution for each gallon of water treated.

•  Business Viability: Potential for wide-scale application of the product solution in the market with a robust business behind it
What is the industry and process that the company is targeting for its market launch?

We also want to hear about any metrics that you can offer to demonstrate the sustainability of your product, from an economic, social and environmental perspective.
