Woodland Biofuels Selected as GoingGreen Global 200 Winner

 

Toronto, Ontario, September 14, 2011Woodland Biofuels, a leading cellulosic ethanol company, has made the 2011 GoingGreen Top 200 for being one of the most promising private greentech companies on the planet.  Inclusion in the GoingGreen Global 200 signifies industry leadership and a game-changing technology that is likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Woodland was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

 

Woodland will be honored at the GoingGreen Silicon Valley Venture Summit on September 27th, 2011, in an award ceremony to take place at San Francisco City Hall.

 

“This year’s winners clearly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities we’ve seen in the private company marketplace and underscore that many of the greentech sectors VCs have been betting on are booming,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn.

 

The GoingGreen Global 200 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international greentech technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and greentech industry insiders.  The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2011 list.

 

Woodland's patented technology can produce sustainable fuels from virtually any type of biomass, including wood waste, agricultural waste and municipal waste. The technology generates no toxic emissions and eliminates the need to use food, such as corn, to produce ethanol.

 

“The GoingGreen Global 200 award is another indication that Woodland is emerging as a leader in the biofuels industry.  We look forward to the completion of our large demonstration facility in 2012, which we expect to show that Woodland will be the lowest cost producer of automotive fuel in North America,” said Greg Nuttall, President & CEO of Woodland.
