RIO RANCHO, NM, Oct. 28, 2009 -- Mayor Tom Swisstack applauds the recognition of New Mexico-based MIOX Corporation who was recently named a Global Cleantech 100 company by Guardian News and Media and Cleantech Group, LLC. The Global Cleantech 100 highlights the most promising private clean technology companies around the world.
"MIOX is deserving of this recognition as their technology has brought added safety to our water operations and residents," said Swisstack.
The city of Rio Rancho has been utilizing MIOX since 2006 and currently has 11 of their systems installed. Using MIOX on-site generation water disinfection systems at city wells has replaced the need for chlorine gas for water disinfection, creating a safer and greener disinfection process for the city and its residents.
The technology used in MIOX systems disinfects drinking water on-site and on-demand using only salt, water and power, eliminating the need to purchase, transport and store chemicals in the process of providing affordable and safe water.
The Global Cleantech 100 recognizes companies at the forefront of cleantech innovation offering solutions to some of the world's most pressing environmental challenges. The list of 100, which was compiled from approximately 3,500 nominations, was determined by leading experts from around the world.
