British Media Celebrates Crystal Lagoons’ Founder Nomination to UK-based Innovation Award3 October, 2016 / News
The well-reputed business website Management Today has recently published the list of nominees to the The Real Innovation Awards, organized by the London Business School.
The George Bernard Shaw Unreasonable Person Award recognises those stubborn innovators and it will go to an individual who has shown enormous tenacity and stubbornness in pursuing an idea, despite the difficulties encountered along the way.
Fernando Fischmann is a renowned scientist and entrepreneur. He has developed an environmentally-friendly technology that can create unlimited-size crystal-clear lagoons, surrounded by beaches, anywhere in the world. Nowadays, he boasts over 400 projects worldwide. His innovations have generated a portfolio of over 1,000 patents, positively impacting the world, changing people’s lifestyles.
Fischmann’s innovation sprang up from one of his dreams: to build a tropical-like turquoise lagoon in front of the freezing cold and dangerous Chilean coast. Everybody told him it was impossible. He kept persevering and after years of research he achieved his goal: an 8-hectare crystal-clear lagoon at San Alfonso del Mar, the size of 6,000 swimming pools. These lagoons use just 2% of the energy and 100 times less chemicals required by conventional pool technologies.
His technological breakthrough is being applied to a wide variety of industrial applications and being used to solve some of the greatest challenges of human kind: water and energy scarcity, as well as pollution.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
