Abstract
Challenges in water management are becoming more severe in many countries and this is exacerbated by climate change. With the increase of environmental threats, a new market for clean tech companies is emerging on the global scheme. The majority of these companies are small and medium seized companies (SME) under rapid growth. This paper is investigating the clean-tech product Compotherm. Two market overviews of the global solar thermal market as well as the portable water purification market will be shown. Which market- based factors are vital for the products potential success? What current competitors are there? This paper will also study the current needs of water clean technologies in Africa by conducting and reviewing a series of... (More)
