More Than $53,000 in Business Grants Awarded By Chemical Alliance Zone
Three companies who recently received grants developed products or systems that had big potential for commercialization in West Virginia. One company developed a portable water filtration unit that can be used for customer demonstrations on clean water. Another grant went to a biotechnology company whose specialty is analyzing DNA, and a third grant was awarded to a company to further their work in green processes.
All three companies represent the type of technology-based entrepreneurs that Chemical Alliance Zone would like to see relocate or start up in West Virginia. The purpose of the grant program is to encourage more technology companies to relocate to West Virginia and to increase commercialization for existing companies.
The Chemical Alliance Zone, Inc. (CAZ) is a West Virginia-based non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and expanding the chemical industry and technology economy in West Virginia.
