Solazyme maintains lead in early Hot 50 voting; Amyris, LanzaTech, Sapphire Energy make a move

| October 5, 2012

In Florida, Biofuels Digest subscribers have kept Solazyme in the lead in 2012-13 50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy balloting, with last year’s winner maintaining a small lead over last year’s #3, Gevo. Amyris, which had dipped to #5, has managed to get back to #4, while Novozymes continues to show a lot of strength in reader voting – and LanzaTech has made it all the way to #5.

New appearances in the Top 10 this year, so far, are Joule Unlimited (at #9 this year), BP Biofuels (#6), and DuPont Industrial Biosciences (#10). KiOR and Butamax are hovering just outside the top 10.

Digest editor Jim Lane commented, “The votes reported here do not yet count in Twitter votes, or the votes coming in from the invited international selectors. So, it’s early, early days. It’s all going to come down to, in the end, how much individual companies get their fans to make sure they cast a ballot – or, alternatively, get active in Twitter.”
