LanzaTech CEO Jennifer Holmgren noted: “Over the last 3 years (2011-2013), the top North American companies have been SilverSpring Networks, OPower and Nest:  they are all building ecosystems, building industries. We have worked hard inside and outside the company to position ourselves as not just a  biofuel company and we have tried to build a message around the fact that we are building an industry – the gas fermentation industry.  Our plan continues to be to build a company with broad impact, that sets the pace and tone for the industry and sector.”
