Colorado's Access Sensor Technologies Takes Top Prize at the Mining Cleantech Challenge
Access Sensor Technologies from Fort Collins, Colorado, makes business card-size sensor tools for rapid assessment of pollutant levels in materials such as water. Their trademarked OnTarget technology circumvents the need for lab analysis, allowing technicians to analyze samples onsite, in the field, immediately.
Second and third place were awarded to Rentricity Inc., from New York, and Hydrostor, a Canadian company, respectively.
