We are delighted to inform our customers, colleagues, stakeholders, and the general public that Amir Varshovi CEO of GreenTechnologies has received the SBA award for the state of Florida’s small business person of the year. Dr. Varshovi has steadfastly guided our organization to the pinnacle of success. GreenTechnologies was founded by Dr. Amir Varshovi in 1999. While earning his Ph.D. in Soil and Water Science from the University of Florida, Dr. Varshovi worked with commercial fertilizers that were sent to the university for verification and authentication.  He studied their components, their effects on healthy plant growth and their effects on the environment.

He investigated the environmental impact of fertilizer components, as well as their origins. Dr. Varshovi discovered that many of these components are produced outside the United States and realized the need for environmentally friendly fertilizer that utilizes renewable resources available locally.

Dr. Varshovi began developing processes of nutrient recycling, finding sustainable alternative sources for the nutrients plants need. One of the most available sources of those nutrients is biosolids. Combining his knowledge of soil and water, chemistry, plant growth and development with his experience in the fertilizer industry, Dr. Varshovi began developing a process to turn this abundant resource into an effective, slow release organic fertilizer.
