BusinessWeek Names MAR Systems "Most Promising"
Cleveland, OH--CleanTech company MAR Systems, which removes mercury, arsenic and other toxic metals from industrial waste water, was named one of America's Most Promising Startups by BusinessWeek Magazine. Early Stage Partners led the first institutional round of investment into MAR in 2009.

The technology enables metals to be extracted from flowing wastewater leaving an industrial facility at 20,000 times the rate of current technologies.
