LanzaTech, Novozymes, Amyris, DSM, Enerkem, POET, BASF, Genomatica and Braskem Hot 50 voting lead as voting nears final week

January 25, 2018 |

Enerkem bolted into the #2 position and Braskem reached the top 5 in the 50 Hottest Companies in the Advanced Bioeconomy ballot, as subscriber balloting began to near the February 2nd conclusion for the 2018 poll.

Overall, LanzaTech remains in the lead, followed by Enerkem, Amyris, Novozymes, Braskem, BASF, DSM, Genomatica, Renewable Energy Group and Poet-DSM. The Digest released the early-voting totals from Subscriber Voting — which do not yet include Invited International Selector votes. This week’s summary includes photo and other bonus votes which are just now beginning to come in, also.

International companies, strategics, synbio and nutrition on the Rise. Notable among the leaders is the rise of an international set of leaders — from Europe: Novozymes, DSM, BASF, AkzoNobel, Avantium, Clariant, Heldor Topsoe, MetGen, Neste, Sofinnova, Evolva, Reverdia, Corbion and the DSM-Evonik JV. From Canada, Enerkem, Ensyn and BioAmber; from Brazil: Braskem. LanzaTech, though now a US company, was founded in New Zealand. From India, Praj Industries.

Also notable are the strong presence of major strategics such as DSM, ADM, BASF, Braskem, Clariant, IKEA, and AkzoNobel, Bayer, DowDuPont, Neste, Boeing, Shell and Honeywell, among others. And, the number of (primarily) chemicals players such as BASF, DSM, Braskem, Green Biologics, Genomatica and Avantium. Finally, lots of fresh faces such as Impossible Foods, Ginkgo BioWorks, Evolva, Bolt Threads, Beyond Meat, Calysta, and  Zymergen were scoring well with voters.

Here are the leaders in voting through January 25th. We’ve salted in some creative (and often hilarious) Photo Votes that have been coming in from readers.
