Blue Sphere Corporation (OTCQB: BLSP) is an international Independent Power Producer (IPP) that transforms millions of tons of agricultural, municipal and industrial waste into sustainable clean energy and other by-products.

Instead of burying organic waste, Blue Sphere transforms these harmful materials into sustainable clean energy, helping to eliminate the release of damaging greenhouse gases and replace the need for environmentally harmful landfills that pollute our soil, underground water tables and atmosphere.

We believe that organic waste can help supply a large and sustainable source of clean energy for growing global demands.

The Blue Sphere waste-to-energy facilities sell electricity, natural gas, compost and other by-products primarily through fixed-rate power purchase agreements.

The waste-to-energy markets provide tremendous opportunity as there is a virtually endless supply of waste and organic material that can be used to generate power and valuable by-products. In particular, the disposal of organic material to landfills in most parts of the world is a costly problem with environmentally-damaging consequences. Blue Sphere offers a cost-effective, environmentally-safe alternative.

The Blue Sphere team brings decades of financing, regulatory, technology, and mass-scale project expertise to the $24+ billion waste-to-energy market. Blue Sphere also partners with various investors, banks and other institutions to fund developments at the project level.

  • We setup, own and manage the project, i.e. BOO (Build-Own-Operate).
  • We sign a PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) with an electricity company or other off-taker.
  • We choose the best technology available and sign an EPC (Engineering Procurement Construction) agreement for a turnkey commissioning of the project.
  • We sign supply agreements with feedstock suppliers.
  • We provide financing, debt and equity.
  • We choose a site in an area where feedstock is easily available and where electricity grid connection is nearby.
  • We apply and receive all regulatory permits to erect the plant and process the waste.

Waste-to-Energy
One of the highly growing clean energy markets is waste-to-energy.

Global Need for Clean Energy

The global clean energy market grew at an annual rate of 31%, reaching $246 billion in 2011 (Clean Edge, 2012), driven by the global population's increasing need for more energy (see to the right). The USA reclaimed 'the top spot among all G-20 nations, thanks to $48 billion primarily in government subsidies, but with $45.5 billion in private investments' (Pew Charitable Trusts, 2012). 'China’s investment in clean energy grew 30% to $51.1 billion in 2010' (Seeking Alpha, 2011). In China, '400 GW of new clean energy capacity is likely to be needed by 2020' (Climate Bridge, 2012). 'The total investment into renewable power in Africa was $3.6 billion by 2010 and is expected to grow to $57.72 billion by 2020' (Frost & Sullivan, 2011a). There are thus opportunities in these three markets for clean energy solutions such as Blue Sphere provides.

Waste-to-Energy Market
One of the highly growing clean energy markets is waste-to-energy. There is an 'endless' supply of waste due to the billions of tons generated each year from organic waste, farm waste, animal manure and municipal waste since 'humans generate over 2.1 billion tons of municipal waste annually' (Think Global Green, 2012); and an 'endless' demand for energy since 'waste from farms, gardens, industries and municipalities can be utilized to obtain petroleum substitutes, heat and electricity' (Frost & Sullivan, 2011b). In the global market, which was $7 billion in 2010 (SBI Energy, 2011), the thermal and biological segments will reach $6.2 billion in 2012 and $29.2 billion by 2022. In an optimistic scenario, they could reach $80.6 billion by 2022 (Pike Research, 2012).

Turning Endless Waste Into Endless Energy
Blue Sphere develops, owns and operates waste-to-energy facilities that are changing the world today and for tomorrow.

Blue Sphere, a global Independent Power Producer turns harmful wastes into sustainable energy.

Our complex systems help to:

  • Treat or eliminate waste rather than bury it
  • Reduce methane and other greenhouse gas emissions
  • Turn organic waste into sustainable clean energy
  • Protect underground water supplies

Our Vision

  • Organic waste can help supply a large and sustainable source of clean energy for growing global demands.
  • Blue Sphere transforms millions of tons of agricultural, municipal and industrial waste into sustainable clean energy and other by-products.
  • Over time, independent power producers like Blue Sphere will replace the need for environmentally harmful landfills that pollute our soil, underground water tables and atmosphere. Instead of burying organic waste, Blue Sphere transforms these harmful materials into sustainable clean energy, helping to eliminate the release of damaging greenhouse gases.
