CustoMem wins Technology Business of the Year 2019 at the 6th annual West London Business Award
For CustoMem to win the award for Technology Business of the Year speaks volumes about its journey thus far. CustoMem’s journey in biomaterials and the circular economy began in 2015 with success in the world’s biggest science competition, IGEM hosted by MIT, in the field of synthetic biology. Since then, CustoMem has made significant advances developing water treatment solutions, the first product of which is patented CustoMem Granular Media (CGM). CGM possesses innovative, customizable properties that can be adapted to target and absorb individual micropollutants, treating industrial wastewater and improving environmental and human health.
CustoMem’s customers have also increased in number and satisfaction over the last few years. We now count a publicly listed French fashion company, one of the world’s largest US-based water tech companies, and a large chemical company among our partners. Each of these partnerships has been instrumental in increasing awareness about the CustoMem brand and has contributed significantly to CustoMem’s success as the Technology Business of the Year.
