The Cleantech 100 list

Renewable chemicals, biobased feedstock, intermediates technologies surge

This week, the Cleantech Group kicked off awards season with their annual Cleantech 100 alphabetical listing of great, private cleantech companies. This year, 14 biobased companies made the grade – including Avantium, BioAmber, Genomatica, Enerkem, Joule, LanzaTech, LS9, OPX Bio, ZeaChem, EdeniQ, Kaiima, Marrone Bio Innovations, NexSteppe, and Renmatix.
