1 Nov 2019

Velocys is delighted to have been named as one of ‘The Next 50 Companies to Disrupt the World’ by Biofuels Digest at this year’s ABLC NEXT conference in San Francisco. The award celebrates Bioeconomy companies that are on the journey to commercial scale with an emerging technology, with Velocys amongst only a handful of biofuels companies to be shortlisted. Velocys’ Chief Financial Officer Andrew Morris collected the award from Biofuels Digest’s Jim Lane.

The conference also provided opportunity for Velocys to present on Bayou Fuels, the planned waste-to-jet fuel facility in Natchez, Mississippi. Velocys recently announced it had reached an agreement with Oxy Low Carbon Ventures (OLCV) which, when completed, will enable the production of transportation fuels that have a net negative carbon intensity, making it the first facility of its kind in the world.
