VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies, a nutrient recovery solutions company, was named one of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) 2011 class of Technology Pioneers. Ostara is the only Canadian company to receive this global award this year, and one of only three water-related companies to be honored.

According to the WEF, this year’s Technology Pioneers represent 31 of the most innovative technology start-ups from around the world who provide cutting-edge innovation and are poised to have a critical impact on the future of business, industry and society.
