COMPANY RECOGNIZED FOR CREATING NEW OPPORTUNITIES IN GREEN TECHNOLOGY
Vancouver, BC – September 13, 2011 – Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies Inc., a global leader in nutrient recovery solutions, announced today that it has been recognized by AlwaysOn as one of the GoingGreen Global 200 winners.
GoingGreen Global 200 WinnerThe GoingGreen Global 200 winners were specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts around the world based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz. Inclusion in the GoingGreen Global 200 signifies leadership in the cleantech industry and recognizes game-changing approaches and technologies that are predicted to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players.
Ostara’s Pearl® Nutrient Recovery technology recovers phosphorus and ammonia from wastewater streams and transforms them into a highly pure, slow release commercial fertilizer called Crystal Green®.
“Picking this year’s GoingGoing Global 200 was a very competitive process, as literally dozens of great greentech companies are emerging out of the pack, raising big money, and gaining significant market traction,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s winners clearly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities we’ve seen in the private company marketplace and underscore that many of the greentech sectors VCs have been betting on are booming.”
The GoingGreen Global 200 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international greentech technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and greentech industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2011 list.
“We are proud to be recognized internationally this year by GoingGreen,” said Phillip Abrary, Ostara’s president and CEO. “Our team is honoured that our work in developing a closed-loop sustainable technology that protects our natural waterways, environment and has a significant impact on our global food supply by providing phosphorus from a renewable source, is receiving global attention.”
Ostara and the GoingGreen Global 200 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s GoingGreen Silicon Valley event on September 27th, 2011, at San Francisco City Hall in San Francisco, CA.
