April 5, 2019 |

In Washington DC, LanzaTech took the #1 spot in the 2019 “50 Hottest Companies in the Advanced Bioeconomy” rankings, published today in The Digest, the world’s most widely-read bioeconomy daily. It was third year at the top for LanzaTech, which also ranked #1 last year. The rankings were announced at the Advanced Bioeconomy Leadership Conference at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC.

Renewable Energy Group (#2), Ginkgo BioWorks (#3), Amyris (#4), Enerkem, (#5), Beyond Meat (#6), Genomatica (#7),  Praj Industries (#8),  Impossible Foods (#9) rand Fulcrum BioEnergy (#10() rounded out the top 10.

Ranked #11 through #20, respectively, are Avantium, Zymergen, ICM, POET, Novozymes, DSM, Neste, Gevo, BASF and Cargill.

The annual rankings, which recognize innovation and achievement in fuels and integrated biorefinery development, are based on votes from an invited panel of distinguished international selectors and subscribers of The Digest.

“Nutrition and advanced ultra-low carbon technologies made big moves this year,” said Digest editor and publisher Jim Lane. ”Impossible Foods, Beyond Meat, and Gingko cracking the top 10 is just a sign of the times, and the DSM-Amyris and POET-DSM collaborations were clearly on voters minds. But also, Bolt Threads, Modern Meadow, Calysta, Arzeda, and Zymergen exemplify an important trend.”
