STAEFA, Switzerland - ReVolt Technology, Ltd, a technology company, which has developed a rechargeable zinc-air battery, today announced that it has been chosen as a one of the Top-24 leading European start-up and early stage cleantech companies from a pool of over 300 applicants. The Top-24 winning companies were selected by a committee composed of experienced cleantech investors and professionals across Europe to present at the Cleantech Summit 2009. The Cleantech Summit was held in Geneva, on June 17 and 18, where an international delegation of more than 140 influential investors, technology industry leaders, service providers and academics participated in the event. The selected companies span cleantech segments such as: solar, wind, wave and bio energy; energy efficiency and storage; clean transport; biomaterials and waste management.

"This summit is about what our society needs to address the climate change issue: collaboration. We are facilitating the collaboration between entrepreneurs and investors, start-ups and established companies, energy generators and energy users; and between business and politics," said Bernard Vogel, President Cleantech Summit 2009. "Some very exciting start-ups took part in the Cleantech Summit 2009, many with the potential to impacts consumers' lives for the better in the long term."

ReVolt's zinc-air, rechargeable battery technology provides a high energy solution for consumer and industrial market applications that is environmentally safe, reusable and recyclable. Revolt's zinc-air technology offers up to three times the energy density of lithium-ion in an inherently safe package representing a major leap forward and compelling value proposition for energy-hungry devices.

"The ReVolt Technology team is indeed honored to receive recognition as one of Europe's Top-24 cleantech companies," stated James P. McDougall, CEO of ReVolt Technology, Ltd. "We are grateful for the selection committee's decision to include ReVolt Technology as a member of this esteemed group of industry leaders.
