Making Ripples

Ostara named in the 2014 Global Cleantech 100 for 6th year running

Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies Inc., has been recognised for the 6th straight year as a leader in the cleantech industry for the commercialisation of proprietary nutrient recovery technology that recovers nutrients from used water streams to convert them into high value eco-friendly fertiliser.

Global Cleantech panelists praised Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies for, “cleverly combining wastewater treatment with the production of a revenue-generating green fertiliser”.

The Global Cleantech 100 represents the most innovative and promising ideas in cleantech. Featuring companies that are best positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges, Global Cleantech 100 is a comprehensive list of private companies with the highest potential to make the most significant market impact.

“It is a thrill to be named in the Global Cleantech 100 list for the 6th consecutive year,” said Phillip Abrary, Ostara’s president and CEO. “Phosphorus management is one of the most critical resource issues the world faces today. Though essential to all life, and a key macronutrient used to grow the food we need, phosphorus in excess can have negative consequences in our environment causing algae blooms that destroy marine life and wreak havoc on fishery and tourism industries. We are proud to be one of the first companies to address this issue sustainably – both environmentally and economically – by recovering phosphorus and nitrogen from wastewater streams and converting it into plant-activated, environmentally friendly fertiliser sold as Crystal Green®.”
