Gevo forces out LS9 in top 10 as Hot 50 voting continues

November 19, 2010 |

Amyris, Terrabon, DDCE, Gevo, Novozymes, OriginOil, Petrobras, POET, Sapphire Energy, and Solazyme formed the top 10 in the fourth day of subscriber balloting for the 50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy.

LS9, which made the top 10 on the first three days of voting, was just outside the Top 10, along with Ceres, Genencor, Codexis, UOP, REG, Enerkem, Qteros, Waste Management, and Virent.

Among those just outside the top 20 included Cobalt, Joule Unlimited, Shell, Cosan and Algenol.

Balloting will be open to the registered subscribers of the Biofuels Digest, Geothermal Digest and Renewable Chemicals Digest e-newsletters, through Monday November 30th at 5pm EST, as well as a panel of invited international selectors.

“Butanol technologies are getting stronger, with Gevo back in the top 10 and Cobalt just on the edge of the Top 20 – both are jumps from 2009-10,” said Biofuels Digest editor and publisher Jim Lane. “Algae-based biofuels companies such as Sapphire Energy and OriginOil remain at the top of the ranks, too.

Results published today include only ballots submitted by Digest subscribers. Ballots from the invited international selectors, which make up half of the overall scoring, are now being received and will also finalize on November 30th. The invited selectors ballots generally feature a broader range of companies in terms of geographies and processing technologies.

Voting is limited to Digest subscribers – ballots are downloaded from the daily Biofuels Digest newsletter. To become a subscriber, visit here.

All selectors are able to take advantage of what has been described as the “most comprehensive, free data resource in bioenergy,” the 380-page “Selectors Data Book” which includes company profiles, surveys and industry data. This is the third year that the Digest has published its annual 50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy rankings.
