EVEN YEHUDA, Israel, December 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Blue Sphere Corp. (OTCBB: BLSP) (the "Company" or "Blue Sphere"), a company in the Cleantech sector as a waste-to-energy and clean energy project integrator, is pleased to announce that it has received a term sheet from a large and reputable buyer to purchase the federal and state tax credits from its 5.2 MW and 3.2 MW waste-to-energy plants in North Carolina and Rhode Island for over $11,000,000.

"This represents another major break-through for the Company.  We now have an offer for over $11,000,000 in cash for the federal and state tax credits to be generated by our waste-to-energy projects in North Carolina and Rhode Island.  This means that, subject to entering into a definitive agreement with the buyer, we will receive over $11,000,000 in cash within several weeks after we commission our projects.  Commissioning of both projects is expected in Q4 2013. As I said last week after the land for the NC project was purchased, we have started the countdown to project construction and implementation in Q1 2013 and expect to commence receipt of revenue promptly thereafter," said Shlomi Palas, CEO of Blue Sphere Corp.
