Nottingham success in green technologies awards
Date:2/10/2011

Green technologies developed at The University of Nottingham have been recognised among the finest examples of new innovations aimed at reducing global warming and tackling climate change.

The University impressed the judges at the recent Rushlight Awards, attracting two prizes for innovations that will improve access to clean drinking water for people in the developing world and help to make homes of the future more eco-friendly.

The Rushlight Awards, which were awarded at a recent gala event in Westminster and attended by around 300 leading figures from the clean technology industry, showcase the very best new sustainable technologies in development in the UK and Ireland.

Professor Saffa Riffat, Professor in Sustainable Technology in the Department of Architecture and Built Environment at the University, and head of its Institute of Sustainable Energy, said: "The University of Nottingham is a major centre for energy and clean technology research and is committed to the development of new cost-effective energy solutions, from renewable sources.

"The awards were the perfect shop window for Nottingham's research expertise and as a result of our success we have already been approached by a number of leading companies interested in exploring knowledge transfer partnership opportunities."

The University collected the Rushlight Solar Energy Award for a unique water purification system that potentially could protect people in the developing world from the risk of serious illnesses such as cholera and dysentery associated with a lack of clean drinking water. The simple, portable and low-cost device which is powered by the sun's energy uses a unique honeycomb core to filter the water and remove any dangerous impurities. The University is currently seeking industry collaboration to begin manufacturing the device.

The University was recognised alongside its industry partner Roger Bullivant Ltd, the Burton-on-Trent-bas
