MBI honored for water technology

By May 18, 2011

Marrone Bio Innovations has been selected by the Artemis Project as a winner in the Top 50 Water Companies Competition in recognition of its product Zequanox.

Zequanox is a natural product for the control of invasive zebra and quagga mussels that are multiplying in freshwater lakes and rivers throughout North America and Europe. It is derived from a common microbe found in soil and water bodies, and is the industry’s first selective and environmentally friendly solution, according to a press release from MBI.

“Invasive mussels cause over $1 billion in economic impact to civil infrastructure in North America alone,” said engineer Sarahann Rackl, Ph.D., the invasive mussel project manager for MBI.

“Zequanox is a safe and effective solution for use in industrial and municipal settings,” said Dennis Bitter, sales manager at MBI. “It’s a direct replacement for more harmful chemicals like chlorine.”

“The Artemis Top 50 is the water industry’s benchmark for recognizing innovation that will matter. It identifies the entrepreneurs that are applying technology to meet the world’s water challenges,” said Laura Shenkar of the Artemis Project. “With these awards, we strive to identify the companies offering the most promising technologies coming onto the market.”
