Bluesphere Signs Letter of Intent with Organic Waste Management for its 3.2 MW Johnston, Rhode Island Biogas Plant

Organic Waste Management to supply 100 - 200 tons of organic waste per day for generation of clean electricity

EVEN YEHUDA, Israel, March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Bluesphere Corp. (OTCBB: BLSP) (the "Company" or "Bluesphere"), a clean energy company that develops, manages and owns waste-to-energy projects, announced today it has a signed a Letter of Intent with Organic Waste Management, LLC, a Massachusetts-based company with over 35 years in the recycling and waste industries ("Organic Waste Management").  Per the terms of the Letter of Intent, Organic Waste Management will supply between 100-200 tons of organic waste per day to Bluesphere's 3.2 MW biogas plant to be constructed later this year in Johnston, Rhode Island. The biogas plant will create electricity from organic waste and renewable resources.

"We are delighted to have met with and started what we hope will be a long-term relationship with Organic Waste Management.  Not only is Organic Waste Management interested in supplying our Rhode Island biogas plant with waste, but we are also discussing other business opportunities, including additional anaerobic digester plants in Massachusetts, where, effective in October 2014, there will be a ban on dumping organic waste in landfills for certain, larger producers of waste," stated Bluesphere CEO Shomi Palas. "Our ability to connect and do business with companies such as Organic Waste Management is crucial to our Rhode Island plant and future growth in New England."

Bluesphere generates electricity from biogas derived from organic waste, which is mostly food waste, and sells this electricity to leading electric companies through long-term power purchase agreements. Waste-to-energy is one of the fastest growing segments in the renewable energy markets. According to SBI Energy, the thermal and biological segments reached $6 billion in 2012 and will reach $29 billion by 2022.
