  Vancouver, Canada – Klean Industries a leading waste to energy solutions provider who builds, owns, and operates tire pyrolysis, plastics to oil, and municipal solid waste plants, has been nominated for the Global Cleantech Cluster Association 2012, Best in Waste Management Class Later Stage Award. The awards recognize innovative mid to later-stage cleantech companies around the world who actively support the business clusters and incubators in their regions.

“We are thrilled to have been nominated and to have made it through to the Later stages of this prestigious international award,” said Jesse Klinkhamer CEO of Klean Industries. “We hope to eradicate the millions of tonnes of waste tires and plastics in existing landfills, polluting the planet and causing environmental destruction. Fossil fuel reserves are fast declining causing unacceptable oil and energy price increases. Klean’s technologies convert these waste products back into high-value, reusable commodities. Hiding something in the ground doesn’t make it go away. We view all rubbish as a precious resource, and all oil-based waste for what it is - oil”.
