Apparently our team name "The BE Team" led to confusion at the PR firm which wrote the press release, so our company name is missing on the list of Western Region semifinalists. Bioroot Energy of Darby, Montana, was also selected as a 2012 Semifinalist in the Cleantech Open Western Region.

The BE Team had a great experience presenting our clean fuel opportunity to potential investors and venture capital at this year's Cleantech Open Conference and Academy event in San Jose, June 22-24.
