$1.7M for Ecochlor

Xconomy Boston — 

Ecochlor, an Acton, MA-based provider of chlorine dioxide systems for killing off invasive species and pathogens from the large quantities of ballast water ships carry from port to port, has raised $1.7 million in an equity funding round, according to an SEC filing. My colleague Erin Kutz reported that the company took in $681,543 in equity back in March. And data from ChubbyBrian shows that Hub Angels Investment Group is backing Ecochlor.
