Innovation awards finalists join Aquatech China
Jun 26, 2017
Shortlisted companies for BlueTech China Awards announced / Technologies for industrial treatment dominate the field / Eight finalists will join Innovation Pavilion at Aquatech China
The two awards highlight technology suited to the Chinese water and wastewater industry and focus on market readiness:
- The Innovative Technology Award recognises an international technology that brings a solution to the Chinese market that judges deemed 'highly innovative' in the context of China
- The Market Readiness Award recognises an international technology that brings a solution to the China market that judges deemed 'urgently needed' in China and the 'most-ready' for market success
The Awards were launched last year by market intelligence specialist BlueTech Research in partnership with China strategy consultant Mandarin Environment and Aquatech China, the prestigious exhibition held in Shanghai on 7-9 June 2017.
Founder and Chief Executive of BlueTech Research, Paul O’Callaghan said: “We are delighted to build on the success of last year’s China BlueTech Awards. China has urgent environmental, water scarcity and urbanisation issues to address and these awards recognise the technology that is most effective and relevant technology for the Chinese market. They also help emerging technology from China identify new markets and opportunities.”
O’Callaghan said: “There is plenty of interest in the Chinese market for water and wastewater, but international businesses may not find it easy to make the necessary contacts and networks. The China BlueTech Awards help bring decision-makers and investors in China closer to technologies which could have a major impact on the challenges they face.
“Within China research and development activity is growing and we have seen a significant rise in patent applications and increased investment in research and development. We believe some of these home-grown Chinese technologies have the capacity to be successfully exported elsewhere and one of the main ambitions of this new award is to make this happen.”
“It is widely recognized as the stepping stone to the Chinese water market and enjoys increased interest from water professionals from the rest of Asia. As with all our Aquatech events around the world, innovation takes centre stage and we are excited to work with BlueTech."
"We are delighted to welcome BlueTech Research along with the finalists of the China BlueTech awards. China is one of the most important international markets for water technology and the awards will provide a platform for technology and innovation from China and internationally.”
The China BlueTech Awards finalists taking part in the Innovation Pavilion and already announced are:
BiOWiSH Technologies, Ohio, USA

Element Six, Oxford, UK
An industrial wastewater treatment technology utilizing an Advanced Electrochemical Oxidation Cell that offers industrial wastewater operators a low-cost and effective solution for dealing with recalcitrant organic pollutants.
The BlueTech China Awards are open to companies specialising in municipal treatment, industrial treatment, stormwater management and biosolids. International entrants are scored on market readiness for the water and wastewater market in China, while Chinese companies are scored on readiness for entering the global market.
Entrants must be able to show at least one successful commercial pilot in the last 12 months and be ready to fulfil an order within a year. The team of judges is comprised of senior water and wastewater practitioners from leading institutions and universities.
Each entry is considered on the grounds of market readiness; assessing scalability, competitiveness, strength of management, sustainable advantage over time and other market factors.
The shortlisted companies are invited to join the BlueTech Innovation Pavilion at Aquatech China, held at the National Exhibition and Conference Centre, Shanghai. The two winners will be announced on June 7, at 15:00 hours local time at the BlueTech Innovation Pavilion in Shanghai.
