“Harvest is creating a more sustainable future by helping communities better manage and beneficially re-use their organic waste,” said Paul Sellew, CEO of Harvest Power. “We are committed to turning today’s challenges into tomorrow’s solutions at the intersection of waste, agriculture and energy.”

Harvest Power diverts discarded organic materials – primarily yard trimmings and food scraps – from landfills and produces renewable energy and soil, mulch and natural fertilizer products through anaerobic digestion and composting.

This year’s winners represent a broad range of sectors including bioenergy, energy efficiency, digital energy, solar and water. By rewarding game-changing innovators, Bloomberg New Energy Finance hopes to highlight the speed of change in the sectors it serves.

The awards program, now in its fourth year, selects ten New Energy Pioneers each year. This year the independent panel of industry experts selected the winners from more than 200 candidates from around the world, assessing them against three criteria: innovation, demonstrated momentum and potential global scale.

Michael Liebreich, Chief Executive of Bloomberg New Energy Finance, said, “Tough times make for good entrepreneurs, and this is definitely what we are seeing in this year’s New Energy Pioneers. Once again we need to thank the judges, who had to winnow down a strong field to just ten winners. We wish them all luck in the coming years.”

Gil Forer, Ernst & Young’s Global Cleantech leader, added, “These entrepreneurs and companies represent the technology and business model innovation which will enable the transformation to a more resource efficient and low carbon economy. Congratulations to all of them.”

Other 2013 winners include Advantix Systems, BuildingIQ, d.light design, Draker, EcoNation, Ecosphere Technologies, Joule, Opower, and Whitewater Technologies.

    The fossil fuel industry is pleased with this use of waste !

    In my opinion

    We need to replace the fossil fuel power plants, the primary source of GHG. Now!

    At a scale required to accomplish this task :

    Ethanol starves people : not a viable option.

    Fracking releases methane : not a viable option.

    Cellulose Bio Fuel Uses Food Land : not a viable option

    Solar uses food land : Not a viable option

    Wind is Intermittent : Not a viable option

    All Human and Agricultural Organic Waste can be converted to hydrogen, through exposure intense radiation!

    The Radioactive Materials exist now, and the Organic waste is renewable daily.

    Ending the practice of dumping sewage into our water sources.

    Air, Water, Food and Energy issues, receive significant positive impacts .

    Reducing illness / health care costs as well !
