Blue Sphere Corporation

Blue Sphere, a clean energy company that develops, manages and owns waste-to-energy projects, has formed a joint venture to develop, construct and operate a 5.2 MW biogas generation facility in Charlotte, NC.

The project is developed in partnership with York Capital Management.

Blue Sphere owns 25 percent of the project.

The JV is anticipated to commence production and sale of electricity during the fourth quarter of 2015, said Blue Sphere CEO Shlomi Palas.

“We booked our first revenue in the history of the Company from the cash payment received at the Closing, and, upon successful completion of the Project, expect to earn regular revenue from the sale of electricity and compost and feedstock tipping fees,” Palas added.

As part of the agreement, Blue Sphere received an initial payment of $1,250,000 in cash at the Closing with a second payment of $1,175,000 to be paid in two equal installments of $587,500 later in 2015 upon the Project’s achievement of each of mechanical completion and commercial operation, a statement from the company said.
