International growth consulting company Frost & Sullivan awarded Broomfield, Colo.-based Range Fuels Inc. with its 2008 North American Fuels Technology Innovation Green Excellence of the Year Award on Sept. 17 at the Green Excellent Awards Banquet in San Francisco. The award is presented to companies that have demonstrated superior technological advancement in the green energy field, and whose technologies are aligned with sustainable and environmentally conscious objectives. Range Fuels' technology converts biomass into ethanol without the use of enzymes. The company broke ground on its first commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol facility in November 2007 near Soperton, Ga.

The first phase of construction, which will reach a 20 MMgy production capacity, is expected to be complete in 2009.
