Crystal IS' UVC LEDs Win Water Technology Award

Crystal IS, which makes ultraviolet light-emitting diodes (UVC LEDs) grown pseudomorphically (strained) on aluminum nitride (AlN) substrates, has won the Disrupt-o-Meter Award at the 2013 BlueTech Forum in Amsterdam. Crystal IS was selected from a range of participants for the water sector award, honoring innovative, industry-revolutionizing technology.

"BlueTech Research has long been tracking and analyzing the market potential for innovative and disruptive water technologies. We believe that the technology presented by Crystal IS represents one of the strongest opportunities in the technical space in the next 5 to 10 years, and are excited about the potential for LEDs in the market, particularly within the water space. UV LEDs represent one of the top five potentially disruptive water technologies, with the global UV water disinfection market worth $1.1Bn. UV LEDs have the potential to disrupt this market and access market share, and equally importantly, to open up new applications and markets previously inaccessible to conventional UV lamp technology," stated Paul O’Callaghan, CEO of BlueTech Research.

"We are thrilled to be recognized by this global forum composed of water industry leaders, market experts and our peers," said Therese Jordan, senior VP of business development at Crystal IS. "This honor signifies the global market’s confidence in our technology and its future impact."

BlueTech Research monitors the global water market for companies with innovative and disruptive technologies and a strong go-to-market strategy. The Disrupt-o-Meter Award is given to the water technology company that has the highest potential to not only influence existing markets, but open up new markets because of its ability to be used in various applications.
