Nexterra receives innovation award

At the Globe Foundation's 10th biennial trade fair and conference in Vancouver in mid-March, Nexterra Energy Corp. was given the Award for Technology Innovation and Application for its gasification technology that converts biomass into synthesis gas. The award was presented to Nexterra Chief Executive Officer Jonathon Rhone at a dinner held in conjunction with the conference. "Tonight's awards demonstrate that companies no longer have to choose between what's good for the environment and what's good for the bottom line," Rhone said.
