LONDON, July 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Business Worldwide Magazine (BWM) released its annual ranking of CEO's from across global industry. and names Applied CleanTech CEO Dr Refael Aharon as Cleantech CEO of the year USA.
It was just eight years ago that Dr Aharon founded the US-based industrial and domestic waste recycling company which has created a patented Sewage Recycling System (SRS) and a product known as Recyllose. What this means is that Applied CleanTech are making waste pay for sewage plants around the world and at the same time ensuring the environment is cleaner and far more environmentally-friendly for those living and working nearby.
The company achieves this by turning the sludge in waste water treatment plants into a form of dry, odorless pellet (Recyllose) which in turn can be used to power vehicles or produce paper and plastics. In doing so, the company claims to be able to reduce the amount of waste by up to 50 per cent in some plants. It also boasts an additional reduction in energy use of around 30 per cent.
BWM has conducted an in-depth research on Cleantech and various other topics and selected Dr Aharon for this award in the Cleantech category among just a few other industry leaders.
In accepting the CEO of the Year Award Dr Aharon said he was delighted that his company was getting the recognition he felt they had deserved for some time now.
He added: "We're delighted in the interest that's been shown in Recyllose in recent years - and all over the globe in fact. Companies are particularly interested in the fact that municipal waste water treatment plants can sell on Recyllose and in doing so get an average yield of around $7 per capita. They'll also meet their government's environmental waste target - which means they won't be financially penalized in that respect.
"Really though, it's about time governments and individuals started viewing waste water treatment plants as waste water recycling plants, a facility which can end up benefitting the local environment."
Applied CleanTech is currently active in Israel, Canada, the UK, Mexico and The Netherland. Plans are also afoot for use further afield in Asia, America, Latin America and other parts of Europe.
A spokesperson for Business Worldwide Magazine said: "Here at BWM we would like to congratulate Dr Refael Aharon at Applied CleanTech for winning the CEO of the Year Award.
"He is at the helm of a successful company which is obviously destined for even greater things. Both he and Applied CleanTech deserve recognition for what they have achieved in such a short period of existence."

Note to editors
Applied CleanTech's SRS system is used for residential and commercial settings. It works best in a residential setting with fewer than 5000 individuals and in commercial settings where fibre-rich wastewater is produced.
Last year the company had $1.5 million in contracts and revenues. It hopes to have more than tripled that figure by the end of this year.
