Washington County's Clean Water Services and Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies built the world's largest municipal facility for making fertilizer from water waste.

The $4.75 million facility in Rock Creek will extract approximately 500 tons of phosphorus from wastewater annually to produce a high-end fertilizer branded as Crystal Green. The facility officially opens officially Tuesday morning with a keynote speech from Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., an Ostara board member.
This is the second such facility from the increasingly green-trending Clean Water Services. In 2009, CWS became the first utility in the United States to launch a commercial facility using Ostara’s Pearl technology at its treatment facility in Durham.

My daughter turned 18 last week, and for her birthday I got her a Car2Go membership. Not to label myself a disruptor or anything, but it felt like a groundbreaking moment. The two of us, mother and child, were participating in a new teen rite of passage: Instead of handing over the car keys, I handed over a car-sharing card — with the caveat that she not use the gift as her own personal car service.
