Cited By Bloomberg New Energy Finance for Their Commitment to the Field of Clean Energy, Technology and Innovation

New York, April 4—Bloomberg New Energy Finance today announced Green Biologics as a 2011 New Energy Pioneer. In its second year, the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Pioneer program named nine other companies at the fourth annual Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit in New York.

Sean Sutcliffe, Chief Executive of Green Biologics, said: “We are delighted to have been given this prestigious award which recognizes the outstanding contribution GBL technology is making in delivering low cost, low carbon sustainable biochemicals and biofuels. We look forward to implementing this technology in our rapidly growing commercial programme in the US as well as in China, India, Brazil and Europe.”

Green Biologics has developed an advanced fermentation process to convert readily available waste and agricultural by-product feedstocks into high value chemicals and biofuels. GBL focuses on the production of butanol, a widely used chemical and advanced next-generation biofuel with superior fuel and sustainability characteristics.

In its second year, the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Pioneers program identifies companies from across the world that are making significant gains in the field of clean technology and innovation. A panel of industry experts, led by Bloomberg New Energy Finance technology specialists, chose the honorees by assessing them against three criteria: potential scale, innovation and momentum.

This year’s winners represent a broad range of industries including bioenergy, energy smart technologies, water and solar. Each of the New Energy Pioneers has worked to develop unique technologies and has demonstrated the potential for these technologies to be competitive in the marketplace and implemented on a large scale.

"The panel chose these companies because we feel they have the potential to change the energy landscape in a very significant way," said Michael Liebreich, Summit chairman and head of Bloomberg New Energy Finance. "In this fast-evolving sector, the Pioneers could play a major role in the world's transition to a lower carbon energy system."

Other winners include BrightSource Energy, eMeter, Epuramat, Metabolix, On-Ramp Wireless, Redwood Systems, SAGE Electrochromics, TaKaDu and Winafrique

The Bloomberg New Energy Finance Pioneers Program is sponsored by AutoDesk and Morrison & Foerster.
