Agilyx Makes the Global Cleantech 100 List for 2nd Year in a Row

Oregon-based Company is Recognized as One of the Top Private Companies in Clean Technology

PORTLAND, OREGON--(Marketwire - Oct. 2, 2012) - Agilyx, the first company to convert difficult-to-recycle waste plastic into synthetic crude oil, today announced it was named in the prestigious 2012 Global Cleantech 100, produced by the Cleantech Group, a leading global research and advisory firm focused on innovation in energy and the environment.

The Global Cleantech 100 list highlights the promise of private clean technology companies from all around the world, focusing on those companies which the players in the market feel are currently the most likely to make the most significant market impact over the next 5-10 years. 8,285 companies were nominated this year from 85 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 236 companies presented to the expert panel for final input. The end result was 100 companies from 13 countries.

"It is an honor for Agilyx to once again make it to the Global Cleantech 100 list," said Chris Ulum, President of Agilyx. "It is a testament that we are making significant inroads in the clean tech space and our unique technology embodies innovation while providing a solution to one of the most pressing environmental issues today."

What distinguishes Agilyx as an alternative energy company is their cutting edge patented processing system, capable of reducing 10 tonnes of plastic waste from landfills per day. To ensure their practices are sustainable, the company has developed an Environmental Control Device that filters out any hazardous gasses from the air. The result of this process is valuable crude oil ready for the refinery and extracted without causing environmental damage.

"The 2012 Global Cleantech 100 is markedly different in its composition to that of 2009, our first edition," said Richard Youngman, Cleantech Group Managing Director. "As such, it is a strong statement of how the collective market opinion has shifted as to what type of companies are the most likely to have significant market impact in a 5-10 year timeframe."
