Tony Lammers, CEO, MAR Systems
Recently named by BusinessWeek as one of America's Most Promising Startups, MAR Systems is revolutionizing water purification. Their breakthrough invention binds with a number of heavy metals within seconds of being added to contaminated water, resulting in a material that is disposable without restrictions - even sellable as concrete filler. The company is now working with refineries and fracking operations to solve their water purification problems. Click here to register.

Andrew Sherman, CEO, MesoCoat, Inc.
MesoCoat’s new metal $6.3 million cladding plant will demonstrate to the oil & gas industry a better way to protect pipes from corrosion. The company’s innovative CermaClad process is 40 times faster and 20% cheaper than traditional methods of cladding metal. Today, oil & gas companies ordering cladded pipe must do so years in advance. MesoCoat aims to reduce that wait time to mere months. Headquartered in Euclid, MesoCoat’s chose to build the plant in NEO in part because of the activity around the local shale plays. The Wall Street Journal recently announced their global 2012 Technology Innovation Awards, with MesoCoat taking the top prize for Manufacturing Technology. Click here to register.
