Tustin, CA – September 15, 2011 – ViridiSTOR LLC’s Green Box™ Solution has been awarded the Grand Prize of the AC-NET (Anaheim Center for New Energy Technologies). The Competition, entering its third year, seeks to promote and develop emerging clean tech companies with solutions to Southern California’s environmental and industrial challenges.
“I am pleased to announce ViridiSTOR as the Grand Prize winner of this year’s competition. Their innovative product not only addresses the environmental impacts caused by the production of paper but helps to reduce costs over conventional means,” said Anaheim Public Utilities General Manager, Marcie Edwards.
"The ViridiSTOR solution demonstrates how technology can immediately address a tremendous environmental issue, while at the same time reducing costs over conventional means of information delivery at events of all types,” said Matthew Jenusaitis, CEO of OCTANe. “ViridiSTOR demonstrates how a privately funded Orange County company can bring to market innovation that solves real-world business problems that show an immediate financial benefit for the economy as well as making a positive environmental impact.”
“It is an incredible honor to win this prestigious award,” said Terry Mullin, CEO, ViridiSTOR®. “We’ve spent many years developing the Green Box Solution to address reducing costs of trade shows and events, while actually solving the environmental issues that surround them. Our solution clearly demonstrates that clean tech solutions of all kinds can be implemented that reduce costs over conventional means, and actually create new revenue streams for businesses. ViridiSTOR is committed to the ‘triple threat’ of providing clean tech innovations that address real business needs, reduce costs, and increases profits for producers, which lead to new job creation,” added Mullin.
“ViridiSTOR was the sponsor of CleanTech OC that provided the electronic delivery of the information from our exhibitors and presenters at the event,” said Taylor Honrath, Director of Development and Programs for CleanTech OC. “We join AC-NET and OCTANe in congratulating ViridiSTOR on this award.”
