News: Metalysis named as Global Cleantech 100 innovator


Rotherham firm, Metalysis has been named as one of the world's hundred most promising private clean technology companies in the Global Cleantech 100.

The CleanTech 100 list is described as "an exciting glimpse of the future," highlighting a group of the most promising private companies focusing on clean technology, with companies selected on the basis of their potential for future growth and beneficial environmental impact.

Metalysis holds the worldwide exploitation rights to the FCC Cambridge process which sees specialist powder metals created in a simple, cost effective process with significant environmental benefits. The Manvers company expects to begin commercialisation of the process later this year.

Some 3,500 companies were considered by a panel of experts and Metalysis is one of only 13 firms in the Global Cleantech 100 that is based in the UK, and one of very few in the list that is operating in the materials sector.

Mark Bertolini, chief executive of Metalysis said: "With thousands of companies considered for the Global Cleantech list, it is a tremendous achievement for Metalysis to be recognised by leaders from the VC and clean technology community as one of the world's top 100.

"Having proven the technology at development scale we are now discussing with a number of potential partners how best to accelerate the scale-up of this technology.

"This award is a great reflection of the progress our team has made and recognises the support and contribution from our investors who have consistently provided funding, most recently in a £5.1m investment in May this year."

Last year Metalysis were highlighted in the 2008 Guardian/Library House CleanTech 100.
