National Biodiesel Board CEO Joe Jobe (left) and Bob Dinneen (right), CEO & President of the Renewable Fuels Association have been recognized as “Friends of GROWMARK” – an agricultural cooperative and petroleum distributor.
This story on Grainnet.com says the award came during the group’s annual meeting today in Chicago, Illinois:
The company gives the award to individuals and organizations for their contributions to the well-being of cooperatives and agriculture.
Bill Davisson, GROWMARK CEO (says) “We appreciate their commitment to the industry and value their friendship.”
“Recognition like this is truly an honor, especially coming from a forward-thinking company like GROWMARK,” Jobe said.
The article points out that during the past year the number of biodiesel plants in the country has jumped from 86 to 150! And the growth and acceptance of ethanol has grown so quickly in just the last couple of years that there have been fears the demand for the feedstocks would dramatically rise (although Cindy’s July 27th post shot a lot of holes in that thinking).
