EVEN YEHUDA, Israel, Feb. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue Sphere Corp. (OTCBB:BLSP) (the "Company" or "Blue Sphere"), a company in the Cleantech sector as a waste-to-energy and clean energy project integrator, is pleased to announce that it submitted to the United Nations on December 26, 2012 its request to register its pan-African landfill gas-to-energy programme of activities. The deadline for such submission was December 31, 2012.
Registering the Company's pan-African landfill gas-to-energy programme of activities with the United Nations will lock-in the Company's right to receive carbon credit revenue from any landfill gas-to-energy project it implements in Africa between now and 2020. The Company currently has 5 landfill gas-to-energy projects signed in Ghana and is pursuing additional sites in Ghana and elsewhere in Africa. The first two sites are financed and ready for construction pending the announcement in Ghana of the feed-in tariff for landfill gas electricity, which is expected in Q1 2013. Depending on the number of sites we implement over this period of time, annual carbon credit revenue could reach well into the millions of dollars.
"This is the biggest break-through yet for the Company in Africa. We have now locked-in the right to receive significant carbon credit revenue through 2020 and possibly beyond. We can go anywhere in Africa and implement a landfill gas-to-energy project with a sizable stream of carbon revenue," said Shlomi Palas, CEO of Blue Sphere Corp.
