The Greater Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT) bestowed Holganix the CleanTech Company of the Year award, recognizing the company for the positive environmental impact of its fertilizers.

“As a customer-centric and innovative entrepreneurial firm, we are all about creating value for our customers,” said Holganix CEO Barrett Ersek.  “We are grateful and honored that PACT has recognized Holganix as a leader in innovation and problem solving.”

Ben Franklin Technology Partners and PECO of Exelon Corp. sponsored the award. In order to be considered, companies must have innovative new products or services that have a positive impact on the environment.

“Winning the PACT CleanTech Company of the Year is a tremendous honor,” Ersek said. “Our entire team is focused on our Big Ambitious Noble Goal (BANG) to eliminate 100 million pounds of nitrates, 20 million pounds of phosphates and 100 million ounces of concentrated pesticides from entering our water sources by Earth Day 2016.  In a way, winning this award is a great recognition of the significance of our mission at Holganix.”

Runners up in the competition included OxiCool, which specializes in advanced air conditioning and refrigeration technologies; and Renmatix, which produces the lowest cost cellulosic sugar.
