CelluForce finalist in prestigious Global Cleantech Cluster Association 2013 Awards

Montreal, Canada | Posted on November 11th, 2013

Each company was evaluated based on their merits in technological innovation and business acumen using the Keystone Compact Method. The Global Top 10 winners will be announced at the Corporate Cleantech Venture Day in Lathi, Finland on November 20th, 2013.

"The 2013 Global Top 30 demonstrate investability, strong product differentiation, scalable business models and have secured solid market traction in their various clean technology sectors," said Dr. Peter Adriaens, Head Judge of the GCCA Later Stage Awards and developer of the Keystone Compact™ and associated scoring method.

"Narrowing down the nominations from 160 to 30 follows a detailed and robust process and analytics. The 2013 Global Top 30 some of the world's most sought after equity
investable cleantech companies based on value capture potential in their CleanTech industry sectors." An interview of Dr. Adriaens is available at www.globalcleantech.org/awards/criteria-and-eligibility/

"It is an honor to be part of this prestigious list of the world's top Cleantech companies" said Jean Moreau, CelluForce President and CEO. "This honor is a reflection of the hard work and resilience demonstrated by the CelluForce team and its partners in developing commercial applications for CNC", added Moreau. CelluForce is a member of Cleantech cluster Écotech Québec, a founding member of the Global Cleantech Cluster Association.
