The Global Cleantech 100 is a comprehensive list of the private companies poised to make the most significant impact on the cleantech industry through innovative and promising technologies aimed at addressing clean technology chalanges. The list is collated by sifting through thousands of nominations and combining proprietary Cleantech Group research data, with weighted qualitative judgments, and specific inputs from a global 100-person Expert Panel.

“We are pleased to once again be recognized as a leading clean technology company through inclusion in the Cleantech 100, said Sean Sutcliffe, Chief Executive of Green Biologics, Ltd.” During this past year, we have made significant progress on our path to becoming an industry-leading renewable specialty chemicals company.
