Bluesphere breaks ground on first waste-to-energy project

March 30, 2015 |

In North Carolina, Bluesphere has broken ground for its first waste-to-energy project and new US headquarters in Charlotte, NC. The Bluesphere facility will produce 5.2 megawatts of clean energy from uneaten food that would normally end up in local landfills. That electricity will then be sold to Duke Energy to provide power to local homes and businesses.

“This facility is the ultimate landfill because we take waste in the back end, nothing going out. There’s no smell, zero product, just electricity and compost,” said CEO Shlomi Palas. Bluesphere hopes to be up and operational by the end of the year and to have 11 additional facilities around the world built by 2018.
