Some of the best clean technologies...

... aren't high profile technologies like solar power, fuel cells, desalination of water, etc. They're basic innovations that help make our use of basic materials more efficient.

One good example might be Hycrete Technologies, which announced a $2m Series A on Monday. The company manufactures an additive to concrete that helps prevent corrosion, which (they report) therefore prolongs the life of the concrete. Since concrete is a highly energy-intensive industry, this seemingly minor improvement could have some significant benefits for both users and the environment. It will be interesting to see how the company develops; and it provides a good example of some of the lower-profile cleantech opportunities out there.
