Inforsense, Inc. is proud to announce it has been selected as a 2014 winner of the Use of Tech in Energy & Environment at the NC Tech Awards. Winners were recognized at the annual awards gala on Thursday, Nov. 6, at the Raleigh Convention Center, presented in conjunction with title sponsor Grant Thornton. This year’s event was attended by more than 700 leaders from across the state.

The NC Tech Awards is North Carolina's only statewide technology awards program, recognizing companies and individuals who have characterized excellence, innovation and leadership in 25 categories. 

InfoSense invented a new technology called the Sewer Line Rapid Assessment Tool or SL-RAT that acoustically inspects sewer lines for blockages, much faster, safer and cheaper than other alternatives.

“We appreciate the NCTA’s recognition of our innovation for its ability to positively impact communities and the environment by helping municipalities more effectively clean sewer lines and reduce sewer spills,” says Dr. Ivan Howitt, founder and CTO.

“Since 1995, the NC Tech Awards (formerly the NCTA 21 Awards) has honored excellence and innovation throughout North Carolina, representing the best and brightest,” says Brooks Raiford, president and CEO of NCTA. “As a winner, InfoSense has distinguished itself as a peer-leader, and we are proud to recognize them as a 2014 NC Tech Awards winner.”
