Jim Lane’s Biofuels Digest is out with this year’s list of the 50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy and algae companies are all over it, including 5 of the Top 15, and the number 1 hottest company – Solazyme.
In the past 12 months there has been a rush of new algal products, demonstrations and technology milestones that is making algae difficult to ignore, and we are glad to see so much recognition in the bioenergy community.
Every year bioenergy companies active in advanced biofuels production compete for a coveted spot on the list, which was revealed Monday at the Advanced Biofuels Markets (ABM) conference in San Francisco.
And special thanks go to Jim Lane and the team at Biofuels Digest for coordinating the list and for the team at GreenPower Conferences for what is becoming a must-attend annual event. The competition and attendance of CEOs from across the industry at ABM is evidence of how important Biofuels Digest’s list has become, and every year the buzz around which companies have made the list fills the hallways and echos in the blogosphere.
Algae companies and ABO members on the 2012-2012 list include:
#8. Sapphire Energy
#9. Joule Unlimited
#11. Honeywell’s UOP
We hope to see all of these, and more, on the list next year.
