Shlomi Palas, the CEO of Blue Sphere, Inc. (BLSP: OTC), another of the microcaps in our coverage group, is not dissuaded. He continues to push forward with the company’s strategy to own and operate biofuel-powered, grid-connected generation facilities. Blue Sphere has two food-waste-to-energy plants under construction in the U.S. in North Carolina and Rhode Island. The company is also pushing forward with two additional ‘greenstart’ biogas plants. Management is working to secure a power purchase agreement for a 5.2 megawatt plant planned near Middleboro, MA, where local governments are keen on keeping food waste out of landfills. Another waste-to-energy biogas plant is planned near Ramat Chovav, Israel. The project would for the first time give Blue Sphere an operating presence in its home country.
