CUPERTINO, Calif. – March 15, 2023 – Aemetis, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMTX), a leading producer of renewable natural gas and renewable biofuels, announced today that its Founder and CEO, Eric McAfee, was awarded the 2023 Global Bioeconomy Leadership Award by Biofuels Digest, the world’s largest daily biofuels publication with 5.9 million readers.
“Global leadership is climbing off the stage and doing useful things with one’s own money and time… That’s innovation, that’s entrepreneurship, that’s persistence, that’s the example needed of a circular bioeconomy unto itself, a symphony of technology that takes individual lines of innovation and harmonizes them until something transformative has appeared,” wrote Jim Lane, Editor and Publisher of the Biofuels Digest.
“It is an honor to announce that the 2023 Global Bioeconomy Leadership Award is given to Eric McAfee, founder and CEO of Aemetis. At a ceremony on Friday, March 24th at 9am ET at the Advanced Biofuels Leadership Conference, we will have a chance to honor our 2023 laureate in person,” Lane stated.
