Many cleantech industry experts will say that, aside from revenue, innovative technology companies are most interested in securing customer reference sites from which they can demonstrate their products and services. In Ontario, the provincially owned Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) is doing its part to ensure emerging water and wastewater treatment technology companies get an opportunity to showcase their wares.
