Feb 9, 2017Ostara named to Global Cleantech Group Hall of Fame
Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies announced it is the first company to be inducted into the Global Cleantech Hall of Fame after being named to the prestigious Global Cleantech 100 for seven years. The Hall of Fame recognizes the achievements of the few companies whose sustained excellence has meant that they have been on the GCT100 list every year for seven years.
The Global Cleantech 100 is produced by the Cleantech Group (CTG) and is a comprehensive list of private companies with the highest potential to make the most significant market impact, and that are best positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges. In January, CTG, released its eighth annual Global Cleantech 100 list and report.
Ostara’s nutrient recovery solution recovers otherwise polluting nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen in wastewater and transforms them into Root-Activated fertilizer. This helps wastewater treatment facilities solve operational issues, meet environmental regulations and generate revenue through the sale of this fertilizer. This fertilizer – marketed and sold in the agriculture and turf industries as Crystal Green – reduces leaching and run-off of phosphorus (the main component of the fertilizer) which helps to protect the world’s waterways and preserve precious ecosystems.
