2015 I.R.P. Winner’s Announced!

January 10, 2016 — Coordinated by Mark Edwards, Chair, A.I.M. Scientific Advisory Board
AlgaeIndustryMagazine.com

Algae Industry Magazine’s 2015 International Readers’ Poll recognizes the best in our industry as selected by you, our A.I.M. readers. Thank you for your engagement!

The Poll offers a voyage of discovery throughout the global algae industry. Many people ask, “What is happening in the algae industry?” This Poll provides intriguing answers about novel uses for algae, such as Living Ink, malaria and cancer drugs, as wells as alginates for sustainable plastics and surfboards. New and emerging creative companies around the world are profiled for their fascinating R&D and practice. Several novel or improved technologies offer revolutionary solutions for choke points in algae production.

Our Poll’s mission states that we want to enable students, scientists, teachers, A.I.M. readers and algae leaders to:

  1. Recognize and reward innovation and excellence.
  2. Convey who and what make a difference in the algae industry.
  3. Celebrate innovative people, companies, laboratories and technologies.
  4. Give Algae Industry Magazine readers a go-to source for algae industry resources.

Please use social media to share your thoughts on the degree to which the Poll meets this mission.

You have spoken! We have a great slate of winners. We promised to publish the winners in each category, Gold, Silver and Bronze. The Poll content is so dense and interesting; we present the results in five daily segments of three categories each. Each category uses a graphic to show the winners based on the percentage of votes received. The work being done is extraordinary and, while the descriptions following are brief, we will be posting additional content about each person, organization or technology in the near future to further tell the story of our emerging industry.

In a few categories, where the race was tight, we expanded to four winners. We also recognize the runners’ up who, in many cases are very deserving but are simply not as well known as the winners. We will follow-up with additional information on the runners up, and their excellent contributions to the algae industry.

Five segments

Segment 1

  • Algae Ambassador
  • Improved Planet Contributions
  • Breakthrough Product or Solution

Segment 2

  • Harvesting Equipment
  • Cultivation Equipment
  • Laboratory Equipment
  • Technology Breakthrough

Segment 3

  • Educational Institution
Strengths

The Polls serves as valuable market research for the algae industry. Several categories include winners or honorable mention that are unsung heroes.

The Poll acts as a learning tool to introduce organizations doing very interesting things. You will see a brief synopsis and a link to a website for each winner. (If any winners would like to edit the description or provide additional content, please send the information to: Mark Edwards at drmetrics@gmail.com.) We especially value posting updated pictures of algae projects.

Missing?

We know some very deserving candidates were left out of the process. If you would like to nominate a candidate for a future Algae Industry Magazine International Readers’ Poll, please make your nomination now. Also include a brief description and contact information for the nominee. If you have a recommendation for a new category, please push it forward using question 17. Your ideas can make a big difference in educating our industry.

Several well-known algae companies opted out of the Poll due to concern about their current status and path forward. Most these organizations are reorganizing or making significant changes.

And now, for the winners. Click here!
