Jennifer Holmgren, CEO of LanzaTech, the global leader in gas fermentation technology, was named the most innovative bioeconomy CEO by the readers of Il Bioeconomista.

We heartily congratulate her (Dr. Holmgren) on this important recognition and sincerely thank our readers for their participation in the survey. As usual, we would like to underline that the bioeconomy revolution is a reality thanks to visionary managers like Jennifer Holmgren, the other nine selected along with her in the list of the ten most innovative bioeconomy CEOs and to all those who in different roles contribute to research, develop and commercialize new bio-based products.”
