Blue Sphere (NASDAQ: BLSP) is an international project integrator and producer of clean energy that provides overall supervision and control over our projects' activities. Blue Sphere's main business model is BOO (Build-Own-Operate), in which long-term energy agreements are executed with electric companies in advance of projects, thereby solving endless waste and ecological problems and meeting the endless demand for electricity.
- Organic waste in the USA contains enough energy to supply a substantial part of the USA'S energy demand. These millions of tons of organic waste are the "oil" fields of the 21st century.
However, as opposed to fossil energy which diminishes and gets more and more expensive and will soon disappear, organic waste is here to stay as long as there are human beings on the plant.
Blue Sphere produces electricity from biogas derived from this organic waste. The electricity is sold to electricity corporations under long-time agreements.
Methane (CH4), emitted from organic waste, is a major negative contributor to global warming and climate change. Blue Sphere converts this harmful gas into inert gas, thus making a major contribution to preventing global warming and climate change.
