Fourteen Polish companies offering environmental technologies have been qualified for the 4th edition of the GreenEvo programme of the Ministry of the Environment. The solutions selected by the Jury of the Competition include passive housing technologies and small wind power systems.
First verification of technologies
GreenEvo is a project of the Ministry of the Environment meant to promote innovative Polish companies on the international markets. The first phase of the already 4th edition of GreenEvo competition has just finished. The Jury of the Programme, comprised of excellent experts in entrepreneurship and technologies, as well as representatives of public institutions, lead by Marcin Korolec, Minister of the Environment, qualified 14 companies for the next stages of the competition. This year, a total of 22 environmental technologies were entered in the competition.
Which technologies were distinguished this year?
The solutions that qualified for the next stage of the GreenEvo programme include: a synergetic system for air energy management in a building, a reagent-based water treatment technology, or the remote reading of meters – an integrated platform for effective management of all utilities.
Once again I am impressed by the innovation of the Polish entrepreneurs. The technologies we selected today look promising. I trust that they will be as successful on foreign markets as were the solutions of the winners of previous GreenEvo editions – said Marcin Korolec, the Minister of the Environment.
It should be stressed that GreenEvo technologies are not only successful in solving environmental problems worldwide and act as green ambassadors of Poland, but they also contribute to building our innovative national economy and creating new jobs in Poland – added Minister Korolec.
A chance to win over the foreign markets
All companies selected by the GreenEvo Jury will be able to benefit – free of charge – from the special training and advisory offer that will prepare them for promotion on foreign markets. It includes e.g.: trainings in sales, intellectual property protection and available sources of financing; presentation of the companies in a multi-lingual catalogue entitled GreenEvo – Polish Technology Leaders (GreenEvo – liderzy polskich technologii), as well as the production of individual promotional spots on each technology. Winners may also count on constant support of GreenEvo project experts – said Agnieszka Kozłowska-Korbicz, project coordinator at the Ministry of the Environment.
Before the 14 candidates become winners of the 4th edition of GreenEvo, independent experts will visit the selected companies and verify their technologies. The final decision on the selection of winners will be made during yet another meeting of the Jury scheduled for 20 May 2013. Winners will qualify for foreign trade missions together with representatives of the Polish government.
