Fulcrum BioEnergy makes Lux Research’s Top 10 company list for 2015

December 27, 2015 |

In Massachusetts, Lux Research selected Fulcrum BioEnergy as one of its 10 top “companies poised to make a significant impact on their target industries,” out of 1,189 companies in total that the company profiled across 20 different emerging technology domains during 2015  Lux also highlighted Elevance Renewable Sciences with an Honorable Mention.

Lux said that “Biojet fuel and renewable diesel are going to be major plays in 2016 and Fulcrum is well positioned to make both fuels from municipal solid waste (MSW) – it has strong partnerships along its entire value chain, and is the only Fischer-Tropsch biojet process developer with proven production at some scale.”

The company added that “Elevance already has commercial scale production of specialty chemicals from crude palm oil (CPO), and is planning to expand by building or retrofitting plants in the U.S. and in Malaysia – notably deploying its technology outside the “conventional” regions of Europe and the Americas.”

Lux also highlighted Organica Water and AgDNA in its top 10.

In addition to providing significant reductions in energy consumption, sludge production, and overall footprint for wastewater treatment, Organica builds low-cost greenhouses around its treatment plants to reduce odor, allowing it to locate plants closer to wastewater sources and enabling cost-effective reuse within cities,” Lux analysts wrote, while “finding successful business models for precision agriculture has been challenging, but AgDNA has been able to get traction licensing its technology – which integrates data from existing equipment into a decision-support system for growers – to OEMs like John Deere.”
