We have seen politicians such as the President of the United States, Donald Trump debate that global warming is just “a very expensive hoax”. A-list celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Emma Watson, on the other hand have worked to raise millions to fight global warming, have expressed that climate change is indeed very real and it is one of the fastest growing issues our world is facing right now.
The signs continue to be disturbing. Worldwide atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide is unparalleled in comparison to the last 800,000 years, and global temperatures are consistently increasing!
This has resulted in the 10 warmest years on record globally, which have taken place since 1998. With that being said, companies like EnviroTechnologies International, Inc. (ETII) have been making headway in the enviro-tech space and investors are starting to take notice!
In a report last year from the OECD, air pollution will be the cause of 6 to 9 million premature deaths yearly and cost 1% of global GDP by 2060. According to the State of the World’s Water last year, more than 650 million people are living with no access to an “improved” source of drinking water. These issues all direct back to the umbrella of pollution and climate change.

With this being such a huge global issue, it has and continues to present a HUGE opportunity for businesses that operate in the green industry and investors looking to invest in the industry.
What Exactly Is The Green Industry?
The green industry focuses on generating a profit while having a positive impact on the environment. Trends in government policy, consumption, costs and technology have all directed towards an even greater opportunity for investors & businesses for MANY years to come.
One industry that has emerged at the forefront is environment-based technologies. According a report on v, the United States is the largest single producer of environmental technologies across the globe, amounting for 29% for the $1.05 trillion dollar global market. Currently there are nearly, 115,000 enterprises and 1.63 million employees that make up the U.S. environmental technology industry.
In 2015 the industry generated over $330 billion in revenue, with the public sector amounting for 34% percent of revenue or OVER $112 billion dollars. With such rapidly growing industry, it’s no surprise that companies in this market have investors taking notice of its true potential.
In 2013 a study reports that 71% of Americans acknowledge the environment when making purchasing decisions. This could be a major factor why companies such as Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG) and parent Alphabet (GOOGL), General Electic (GE), McDonald’s (MCD), EnviroTechnologies (ETII) and other corporations are making efforts to going green and support the environment.
Now, investors are looking for ways to get a piece of the new breakthrough technologies from the ground floor. EnviroTechnologies (ETII) is dedicated to marketing unique and innovative green products for the use in the oil & gas, agriculture and consumer market. They offer a wide range of products that are 100% safe and nontoxic to animals and plants.
An Industry Built For Diversification
The company focuses on marketing three main technology products, first, is their waste and septic system treatment formula NanoAction ™ Activate ™ WST, which focuses on not just clean plumbing but most importantly rejuvenating the bio-activity in the septic tanks and the septic drain field.
EnviroTechnologies (ETII)’s soil composing & plant nutrient formula called NanoAction™ Activiate ™ AWA, is a safe and green additive used in a water solution to trim the Surface Tension of the water, to reduce the interfacial tension of materials in the water, and surfaces contacting the water such as fruits, soils and plants.
Empowered Powered Water ® in its arsenal. The product purifies through the process of double reverse osmosis, UV light exposure and electrolyzed to enhance the pH for optimal alkalinity.
On April 20th, EnviroTechnologies (ETII) announced that they have signed an Letter of Intent with Purity Assurance NW, LLC to dual market its agriculture products to the U.S. fruit industry specifically in the apple, cherry and pear markets. In the northwestern region of the United States, revenues from these markets surpass $2billion annually and amount for 50% of the annual US consumption of these products.
“Our company has been successful in testing safe, green and non-toxic solutions for crop stimulation and anti-bacterial treatment to growers in this sector,” said John Hopkins, ETI’s CEO.
“Our core technology is being used in fruit orchards and processing plants currently and has proven an effective cleaner and anti-bacterial treatment solution. Tests also reveal that our products may increase fruit yields while keeping the environment safe.”
On May 1st of this year the company announced successful lab testing results of its Empowered Water ™ Hypochlorous anolyte and its Activate ™ protein surfactant solutions. For (ETII) this is a huge part of their business model, as the yearly market for disinfectant solutions is anticipated to exceed $1.6 billion solely in the United States.
“By using our natural and safe ActivateTM surfactant we hoped to get significantly more surface area coverage at a faster rate, thereby ensuring that we are in the Hypochlorous “Kill Zone” for the effective time periods.” – Randall Waters, Director of Operations, EnviroTechnologies (ETII)
EnviroTechnologies (ETII) has also announced the addition of a bio-catalytic surfactant expert, Robert Chickering to their Scientific Advisory Council. Mr. Chickering comes from an extensive background of environmental technology companies and currently sits as a principal and General Manager for Environmental Treatment Company.
Investors Have Started To Realize The Opportunity
The industry is ripe with opportunity, as many early investors have already seen with past opportunities like:
