“With companies now embarking on first commercial projects – that means big capital raises and attracting customers,” noted Digest editor Jim Lane. “Brand value now counts more than ever – and we intend to measure brand visibility and credibility, looking not only at the stories in which brands appear, but at reader engagement with those stories.”

Clicks are indexed and weighted based on overall views of the Digest’s daily newsletter (for example, Monday and Tuesday generally receive the most views), and clicks within each daily newsletter to stories featuring the various brands. Click-throughs for stories that featured multiple brands were pro-rated.

The Biofuels Brand Index is reported each Friday, based on weekly, quarterly and annual accumulated brand exposure.
