Three Coveted Honors for Enerkem


Enerkem Inc. continues to make a name for itself around the world in the clean-technology sector. The Sherbrooke-based company was listed in three prestigious industry rankings: Lux Research, Global Cleantech 100, and 50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy.

Lux Research

Lux Research analysts gave Enerkem, a company that creates biofuels and green chemical products from waste, the top ranking out of 415 companies with the best long-term growth prospects.

Global Cleantech 100

Enerkem also made the Cleantech Group’s 2013 Global Cleantech 100 list, which is determined by a 90-person expert panel and highlights the private cleantech companies that are most likely to have a significant market impact in the next five to ten years.

Enerkem stood out from the 5,864 companies in 60 countries that submitted applications. This is the third year that the Sherbrooke company has made this influential list.

50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy

Enerkem also made the 2013–2014 list of the 50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy compiled by Biofuels Digest. It came in at 14th place, up four spots from last year.

Ninety-eight companies from around the world were vying for a spot on this year’s list, which recognizes a company’s innovation and achievements in the bioenergy sector. The top 50 companies were determined by an international panel of experts and the public.

Enerkem will soon inaugurate a full-scale commercial plant in Edmonton.
