The renewable energy company, Ze-Gen, specialises in advanced gasification technology for converting solid waste streams into synthesis gas (syngas), a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen gas.

The GoingGreen Global 200 highlights leaders in technology and innovative approaches that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. However, choosing the selection wasn’t easy, as Tony Perkins, Founder and Editor of AlwaysOn said, “Picking this year's GoingGoing Global 200 was a very competitive process, as literally dozens of great greentech companies are emerging out of the pack, raising big money, and gaining significant market traction.”

$quot;This year's winners clearly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities we've seen in the private company marketplace and underscore that many of the greentech sectors VCs have been betting on are booming,” added Perkins.

The final 200 were selected from thousands of nominated international green technology companies. Nevertheless, Ze-gen was confident in its own offering. Walter Howard, CEO for the winning firm commented, $quot;The urgent need for advanced solutions to confront global waste continues to grow. Ze-gen's technology is at the forefront of global efforts to translate the energy content in waste streams into renewable energy using environmentally superior conversion technology. We are honored to be recognized by AlwaysOn as a GoingGreen Global 200 winner.”

Founded on principles
According to Ze-gen, the company was founded with the fundamental belief in a better way to manage waste material than burying it. Ze-gen's proprietary advanced waste gasification technology promises to convert a variety of waste materials into clean syngas.

The company is currently in talks with investors to fund the firm’s future trajectory.
