Cleantech Firm NVP Energy among the big winners at the UK's Top Water & Energy Awards
12 May 2015, News release from NVP Energy
NVP Energy, a clean-tech company with an innovative technology that can turn wastewater into a revenue generator for end users in the municipal and industrial wastewater industries, was recently the recipient of two prestigious awards from the UK Water and Energy sectors not to mention a substantial grant from the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change.
On the 21st of April, NVP Energy beat off stiff competition to be announced the winner of the Most Innovative New Technology of the Year award at the Water Industry Achievement (WIA) Awards in Birmingham.
The WIA Awards, now in their 9th year, is the only awards ceremony of its kind that rewards outstanding innovation in the UK Water industry, in particular technologies that are seen to be breaking new ground and exceeding customer expectations. NVP Energy's Managing Director Michael Murray said: "this award reflects the pioneering and advantageous nature of the Lt-AD technology and the associated impact it can have on the bottom line of a business and the health of our planet."
Fresh from winning that award, NVP Energy then went on to win its 2nd innovation award in two days when it was announced the winner of the Innovation Award for Energy from Waste at the Environment & Energy (E&E) Awards on the 22nd of April. The 16th annual E&E Awards which were held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham recognised the top UK and Irish companies who push the boundaries of innovation and showcase the very best advancements in green technologies.
According to M.D. Michael Murray, "Winning both of these awards is a testament to the unique and innovative nature of the Lt-AD technology and they reinforce the technological and environmental benefits the Lt-AD technology can bring to the global wastewater and energy industries".
In addition to this impressive recognition, NVP Energy is one of the few companies to be successfully awarded the Energy Entrepreneurs Fund (EEF) Phase 4 from the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) thus further reinforcing the high calibre of the Lt-AD technology.
The EEF grant will financially support the delivery of a full scale Lt-AD reactor at a UK Food & Drinks wastewater treatment plant by March 2016. Speaking after the signing of the offer letter, Michael Murray M.D. said: "This is a hugely important milestone for NVP Energy as it will allow us to validate the technology at full-scale at a time when wastewater treatment plant operators are seeking new superior wastewater treatment technologies to replace their outdated energy-intensive systems".
Once the project is complete, the demonstration reactor will showcase the Lt-AD system and the commercial benefits to the target markets (Food & Drink wastewater; Municipal wastewater) as prospective end-users will be able to visit the site during the project and witness the benefits of the technology at first hand for themselves.
These recent awards and grant successes follow the success NVP Energy had at the start of the year when it was one of only 155 companies out of 2662 companies throughout Europe to be awarded Horizon 2020 Phase 1 SME funding.
