We have reason to break out the champagne: Rivertop has been named the 34th hottest company in advanced bioeconomy. The Hot 50 list is published annually by Biofuels Digest, the world’s most widely read biofuels and bio-based chemicals daily publication, and recognizes innovation and achievement in companies across the bioeconomy spectrum.

While we are bragging, we would like to add that Rivertop ranked #7 on the Digest’s Hot 40 list (featuring small companies in advanced bioeconomy) at the end of last year and that our own CEO, Mike Knauf, was recognized among the top 100 people in advanced bioeconomy in 2016. (We’re done for now).

For all of these lists, rankings are determined by votes from an invited panel of distinguished international selectors (50 percent) and from subscribers of The Digest (50 percent).

These awards come on the heels of a very successful 2015 (ok we’re bragging again), in which we opened our first commercial-scale production facility and experienced significant growth in both production and sales.

We are now excited to set our sights on an equally if not more successful 2016. Cheers to many great Rivertop milestones ahead!
