Vancouver based Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies helps protect precious water resources by changing the way cities around the world manage excess nutrients both in wastewater streams and due to fertilizer runoff. The company’s Pearl® and WASSTRIP® technology recovers phosphorus and nitrogen at municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants and transforms them into a high-value, eco-friendly fertilizer, Crystal Green®.

Crystal Green is the first continuous release granular fertilizer to provide Root-Activated™ phosphorus, nitrogen and magnesium (5-28-0 with 10%Mg), and is marketed globally to professionals in the agriculture, turf and horticulture sectors.

Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies operates multiple facilities throughout North America and Europe and opened the world’s largest nutrient recovery facility in partnership with the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) of Greater Chicago in Spring 2016.
