Electrochaea belongs to the Global Cleantech 100
Electrochaea, one of the world’s leading power-to‑X technology companies based in Germany, Denmark and the U.S., has been named to this year’s Global Cleantech 100. The Global Cleantech 100 is an annual global ranking initiated by the Cleantech Group of the most innovative and promising companies that have developed technologies to achieve the net zero emissions goal. The selected companies were recognized at the Cleantech Forum North America in Palm Springs, California, in late January.
“The Global Cleantech 100 ranking is a powerful initiative that promotes the most advanced cleantechs through a high level of publicity. Our world needs technologies that can be deployed immediately to secure our energy supply while protecting the climate. Electrochaea provides just that. Our team is honored to be recognized by the international cleantech community for our work,” said Mich Hein, Electrochaea’s CEO on the occasion of the award.
More energy security and climate-neutral: Electrochaeas Gas replaces natural gas
Electrochaea has developed and brought to market a process that uses biomethanation to produce climate-neutral gas with the reuse of CO2 and green hydrogen. The gas produced in this way can replace conventional natural gas. This can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, store energy from renewable sources in large quantities, and secure investments in existing gas distribution and storage infrastructure.
15,753 submissions from over 93 countries
The total number of nominations from the public, the Cleantech Group expert panel and staff, and the i3 Research Portal was 15,753 from over 93 countries.
From a shortlist of 330 companies, a panel of 81 technology and innovation scouting experts, including investors, corporate and industry executives, selected the Global Cleantech 100 for 2023.
“This year’s Global Cleantech 100 is notable for the number of companies offering solutions to some of the toughest decarbonization challenges and those working on some of the critical materials issues that will soon be upon us,” said Richard Youngman, CEO of Cleantech Group. “We recognize not only these 100 companies, but the thousands of others who are fighting the good fight.”
The Global Cleantech 100 program has been around since 2009, and the latest Cleantech 100 Annual Report includes a full list of the companies honored for helping to build a digitized, low-carbon and resource-efficient industrial future worldwide.
