Avantium listed in the 2014 Global Cleantech top 100 & received the European Cleantech Company of the Year Award

Avantium, a leading technology company specialized in the area of advanced catalytic research and renewable chemistry, today announced it is listed in Global Cleantech top 100 and also received the European Cleantech Company of the Year.

Featuring companies that are best positioned to solve tomorrow's clean technology challenges, Global Cleantech top 100 represents the private companies with the highest potential to make the most significant market impact.

In May 2014, Avantium was already awarded the European Cleantech Company of the Decade in Stockholm, Sweden.

"To be listed in the global Cleantech top 100 for the fifth consecutive year is a recognition of the continuous progress Avantium has made. Being awarded with the European Cleantech company of the year we believe is due to the tremendous potential of our YXY technology" said Tom van Aken, CEO of Avantium. "We have made enormous progress with the development and commercialization of PEF as the next generation plastic. On top of that we have achieved another important milestone, a $50M investment from Swire Pacific, and our development partners The Coca-Cola Company, Danone and ALPLA as well as our earlier investors. This investment makes it possible to proceed on our path to commercialize PEF, with the engineering and design of our first commercial plant as the next step."

"The Global Cleantech 100 represents the most inspiring array of entrepreneurs across the cleantech space that are at the forefront of innovation," said Sheeraz Haji, Cleantech Group's CEO. "It is a true honour to gather with the global cleantech community every year to recognize and celebrate the achievements of each of the top 100 companies as they continue to solve tomorrow's energy and resource challenges and redefine sustainable innovation."

"The Global Cleantech 100 each year provides us with invaluable insight into which companies key market players think are most likely to have a significant impact in the next 5-10 years," said Richard Youngman, Cleantech Group's Managing Director, Europe & Asia, and creator of the program. "How the composition of the Global Cleantech 100 list changes over time is revealing of key megatrends and hot sub-sectors - and helps us all get a view on the future."
