The voting phase of the GE Ecomagination Challenge completed on Sept. 30th.
THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR FRIENDS AND SUPPORTORS WHO VOTED FOR OUR ENTRY!
Filtration Dynamics Inc. (FDI) entered the General Electric $200 Million Ecomagination Challenge for seed-funding with its unique Resource Recovery Plant Concept and would welcome your comments on our entry. Our revolutionary concept will vastly improve the way wastewater is filtered and simultaneously maximize the extraction of energy from the organics that wastewater contains. This new process will transform obsolete wastewater treatment sites into Resource Recovery Plants, with a carbon negative footprint.

The Voting Phase Results
On Sept 30th the public voting phase of the Ecomagination Challenge ended. Filtration Dynamics was ranked 11th overall out of 3,662 ideas and 4th in our category of Create Power out of 1,725 ideas. GE disregarded the vote tallies of the 4 top vote getters for "irregularities" that violated the terms of the contest. That placed Filtration Dynamics up to 7th place in the overall and 3rd in the Create Power category.
Our high rankings and the support that was evidenced in the many comments that were posted placed FDI in the "Top 100" ideas selected in the Ecomagination Challenge for further study. GE will announce five $100K prizes in early November for worthy ideas and then request business plans for further discussion.
THANKS to all who supported us. :-)
