13 January 2014 - This year's Sustainable Bio Awards will recognise the tremendous innovation that is taking place in the development of truly sustainable bio-based fuels and products. The Sustainable Bio Awards event is where the pioneers and innovators of the bio-based industry are recognised for their outstanding work. From biofuels to face cream, from feedstocks to financing, the industry will gather to celebrate the advancements made throughout 2013.

Categories have been specifically designed to represent the entire bio-based industry value chain, and are as follows: BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY OF THE YEAR, COLLABORATION OF THE YEAR, BIO-BASED PRODUCT INNOVATION OF THE YEAR, BIO-BASED STRATEGIC FINANCIER OF THE YEAR and also INDUSTRY CHAMPION 2014.

With so many projects, products and organisations worthy of these deserving accolades, nominations are being accepted up until midnight on January 31 (GMT).

"2013 was an exciting year for the bio-based industry as it has continued to move from strength to strength and the Sustainable Bio Awards are the perfect showcase of this," said Nadim Chaundry, Global Bio Markets Series Founder. "This is the place where companies and individuals are able to present their work to the wider bio industry and to be recognised for their efforts. We are expecting a strong number of entries this year and our judges are already looking forward to reading and evaluating the submissions from so many exciting innovations and projects."

The judging panel that will oversee the selection of winners is made up of many highly regarded individuals representing a true cross section of the biofuels industry. Rob Vierhout, President of ePure will provide his market insight and is joined by Kyriakos Maniatis, Head of Unit, New Energy Technologies, DG Energy, European Commission, providing a policy-led perspective.
