Leading Alternative Fuel Developers Race to Real Revenue in 2013

December 27, 2012 | State of the Market Report

The alternative fuels sector continues to steadily progress, revealing some lucrative home-runs as well as ill-fated disappointments. Shale gas disrupted the North American energy landscape, and its ripples were felt worldwide. But with the fuels market on the order of trillions of dollars, opportunities for an array of technological solutions exist. To best assess the alternative fuels sector, we refined the crowded landscape into eight categories: crop modification, pretreatment, algae, gasification, bioprocessing, pyrolysis, torrefaction, and catalytic conversion. We then analyzed companies occupying each category using our Lux Innovation Grid methodology, a tool that ranks companies on business execution, technincal value, and maturity. This allows readers to quickly identify potential partnership and investment opportunities that best fits their individual needs.
