Story Highlights

Crain's Chicago Business (April 4) -- EP Purification Inc., based in Champaign, won $100,000 from Wells Fargo & Co. as the best early-stage company that presented its business model to a panel of judges and others in the challenge, sponsored by the Clean Energy Trust. The company employed licensed technology from the University of Illinois to isolate the ozone molecule and use it as a cleaning agent for laundry, doing away with hot water and chemicals, saving energy and money. The startup was founded by Gary Eden and Sung-Jin Park, both faculty members in the College of Engineering at Illinois.
