Cleantech Accelerator Connects Innovative Suppliers with Large Distribution

Cleantech product development includes commercialization that is maximized with large distribution partners. Here's one solution...

Find green business solutions
Cleantech or sustainability needs are being disseminated to The Cleantech Accelerator Project for Wal-Mart. Suppliers with highly scalable solutions are invited to join the Accelerator program to get details about desired products and to submit product literature and other documents online. The categories of sustainable cleantech products being requested (as of December 2008) include:
  • Alternative Battery Technology for Forklifts
  • Building Materials
  • Closed Loop Water Processing
  • Sustainable Management of Oil-based Waste
  • Sustainable Management of Organic Waste
  • Wind Energy Harvesting Opportunities
  • Sustainable Management of Hazardous Wastes
  • Alternative Truck and Trailer Cleaning
  • Efficiency Opportunities for Class 8 Vehicles
  • Reverse Logistics Opportunities
  • Sustainable Landscaping
  • Sustainable Packaging for Packaging and Serviceware
  • Other Categories
Wal-Mart seeks to identify solutions that can be integrated into their current operations. Thus, while research and development projects are of interest, the principal areas of focus are on solutoins that can be deployed in the next 24 months. Submittals will be confidentially reviewed and responses provided on how well these meet stated need(s). If a solution appears promising, additional steps will be provided towards generation of a procurement dialog directly with Wal-Mart.

The Cleantech Innovation Accelerator

How does a large company, non-profit or government find the most appropriate cleantech, and the right provider at the right stage of commercialization, for its specific needs?

The Cleantech innovation accelerator pairs large organizations with leading sources of technology innovation.

For large organizations seeking sustainability solutions for use in their operations, or looking for new clean technologies to adopt in their product development and product line expansion, it can be hard to find the right clean technology partners.

Cleantech Group's Cleantech Accelerator™ service identifies the best clean technology providers for a large organizations' specific requirements. Cleantech Group leverages its resources — including the largest cleantech databases of technology providers — to contact, or attract appropriate technologies if necessary, and then screen them for an organization's needs.
