Harvest Power Named to the 2012 Global Cleantech 100

List Recognizes the Top Private Companies in Clean Technology

WALTHAM, MASS, October 2, 2012 – Harvest Power, a leader in maximizing the value of organic materials, today announced it was named in the prestigious Global Cleantech 100 for the third time. Produced by Cleantech Group, the Global Cleantech 100 list is unique in the sector because it highlights the promise of private clean technology companies from around the world, focusing on companies that players in the market feel are the most likely to make a significant impact over the next 5-10 years.

“The Global Cleantech 100 panel clearly recognizes the importance of Harvest’s mission to create a more sustainable future by helping communities better manage and beneficially re-use their organic waste” said Paul Sellew, CEO of Harvest. “We’re proud to be considered one of the top clean technology companies in the world, and we will continue executing on our strategy to maximize the value from organics, producing renewable energy, compost based fertilizer and mulches.”

Harvest Power was one of 100 independent, for-profit, cleantech companies selected from the 8,285 companies nominated this year from 85 different countries. Cleantech Group’s own data and research combined with the weighted qualitative judgments of hundreds of nominations and the viewpoints of a global panel of 75 cleantech experts went into creating the list.

“The Global Cleantech 100 is a natural extension of our companywide mission to help corporations, investors and financiers, professional service firms and governmental agencies connect with global cleantech innovation,” said Sheeraz Haji, Cleantech Group CEO.  “This report celebrates the best in innovation and is the industry standard on gauging where cleantech innovation is headed next.”
