October 6, 2016 – Waltham, Massachusetts – ESS Group, Inc. applauds Project Scientist Peter Kelly-Joseph on completing a term as co-cleantech Industry Champion for MassChallenge Boston. The not-for-profit startup accelerator recently revealed its list of startup finalists, which includes innovators in energy and water management.

“My role as Industry Champion was to help finalists leverage the vast expertise available from industry, government and nonprofit mentors here in New England’s environmental industry, to both crystallize concepts for new cleantech industries and to address the environmental challenges that startups face as they begin operations.” said Peter Kelly-Joseph. Several finalists received pro-bono environmental consulting support from ESS’ Energy and Industrial Service Team.

He continued, “Pollution control can be a challenging area to innovate because it is a tightly regulated environment. One of my goals for MassChallenge Boston this year was to help bridge the gap between the cost-saving ideas being developed by these industry-changing startups with established approaches in order to improve the management of environmental compliance programs and operating efficiency.”

Beyond the opportunity to support local startups, ESS was exposed to innovative ideas, techniques, and support services that could someday help industrial clients and manufacturing facilities improve environmental compliance, lower costs, and meet sustainability initiatives.
