October 18, 2011

Company Recognized for Clean Technology Innovation  for Third
Consecutive Year

VANCOUVER, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies
Inc., a leader in nutrient recovery and phosphorus management
solutions, announced today it has been named to the prestigious 2011
Global Cleantech 100, produced by the Cleantech Group, a leading
research firm focused on global cleantech innovation. The Global
Cleantech 100 program is produced in collaboration with the UK’s
Guardian News and Media.

The Global Cleantech 100 list highlights the promise of private clean
technology companies from around the world, focusing on those most
likely to make a significant market impact over the next five to ten

Ostara’s Pearl® Nutrient Recovery Technology recovers nutrients such as
phosphorus and nitrogen from wastewater streams and transforms them
into an environmentally-friendly fertilizer marketed and sold as
Crystal Green®.

“We are very proud to once again be named to the prestigious Global
Cleantech 100,” said Phillip Abrary, Ostara’s president and CEO.  “We
are inspired by our part in working toward a solution to the global
issue of declining phosphorus resources, and to the impact our
technology can have on the environment, the global food supply and the
stewardship of the planet’s water resources.”

Ostara’s technology helps reduce wastewater treatment costs, improves
treatment plant reliability and helps meet discharge limits. The
production of Crystal Green is considerably less carbon-intensive than
traditional fertilizer production processes. Its slow-release
formulation results in significantly less leaching and runoff,
protecting sensitive waterways from nutrient pollution that results in
algae blooms that destroy aquatic life.

Ostara currently has three facilities in operation in the US and plans
to launch three more in the coming 12 months, including its first
commercial Canadian facility in Saskatoon and its first European plant
in London.

The Cleantech List is derived from the Group’s own data and research
combined with the weighted qualitative judgments of hundreds of
nominations and the viewpoints of a global panel of 70 cleantech
experts. To qualify, companies must be independent, for-profit,
cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.
