TAMPA — Typical wastewater treatment takes in flushed water, separates out the solids, cleans up the water and possibly produces biogas.

[May 8, 2014, Gainesville, FL] We did it! After a pitch to a panel of national judges and a presentation to over 300 attendees, the NEWgenerator team was named the winner of the 2014 Cade Museum Prize for Innovation, beating out a competitive field of 85 entries ranging from cancer diagnostics to 3D imaging to brain surgery to mobile apps. Way to go boys!
Just announced this morning….NEWGenerator has advanced to the Final 4 round of the Cade Museum Prize. The final showdown will be on May 8, when the finalists will convene in Gainesville to present their technology and business case to a panel of esteemed judges. We are up against three really cool and important technologies (one medical diagnostic, one app, one software), but we are SO ready for this. The team is really fired up.
Stay tuned !
