Green Biologics Recognized as a Clean Technology Leader by Two Prestigious Industry Awards

Specialty chemicals company named in the 2017 Global Cleantech 100 and a 2016 Global Clean Energy Award winner

Green Biologics, Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Green Biologics Ltd., a U.K. industrial biotechnology and renewable chemicals company, today announced that it has been named to the prestigious 2017 Global Cleantech 100 and recognized in the 2016 Global Clean Energy Awards as the Best Renewable Specialty Chemical Company – UK.

Both highly-selective awards programs honor companies worldwide for efforts aimed at tackling today’s energy challenges and contributions to a more sustainable future. Green Biologics was recognized for its Clostridium fermentation platform, which uses sustainable feedstocks to produce high-performance chemicals, such as n-butanol and acetone. These high-value chemicals provide a renewable alternative to conventional petrochemical-based commodities for a growing number of consumer and industrial applications.

“We are extremely proud to receive these two distinguished clean technology recognitions that acknowledge our tireless efforts in bringing renewable chemical alternatives to market,” said Sean Sutcliffe, Chief Executive of Green Biologics. “Both accolades reinforce the industry’s confidence in our technology and are a testament to the significant progress we’ve made over the past year in strengthening our position as a global renewable speciality chemicals company.”

The Global Cleantech 100, produced by the Cleantech Group (CTG),
is comprised of the most innovative companies across a wide range of industries and represents those enterprises with the greatest potential to make a significant market impact within the next five to 10 years. Now in its eighth year, the Global Cleantech 100 list is collated by combining propriety Cleantech Group research data and inputs from a global 86-person expert panel composed of leading financial investors, industrialists, and representatives of multi-national corporations across Asia, Europe and North America.

The Global Clean Energy Awards are produced by Global Energy News, a global publication on the pulse of the latest news, research and developments impacting the energy sector. Winning companies are selected through a combination of votes gathered from the Global Energy News network and its rigorous in-house research.

These recognitions follow closely behind the start of commercial shipments at Green Biologics’ first commercial facility in Little Falls, MN. Green Biologics is a member of the American Chemistry Council (ACC), and its commercial facility is actively working toward meeting Responsible Care® standards.
