ASTM International has honored a long time ethanol industry expert with its Award of Excellence.
Robert Reynolds of Downstream Alternatives received the award for his “outstanding and dedicated contributions to fuel standards development and as a consensus builder within ASTM between ethanol and petroleum interests.”
Reynolds, pictured here at the 2007 National Ethanol Conference, was a founding member of the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) Technical Committee and is the author of the most widely used technical reference materials for fuel ethanol today, the Changes in Gasoline manual series and the Fuel Ethanol Industry Guidelines.
“For more than three decades, Bob Reynolds has served this industry extremely well, bringing an immense amount of technical fuel expertise to an ever- evolving industry,” said RFA President and CEO, Bob Dinneen. “Ethanol wouldn’t have the excellent reputation for quality in the fuel industry without him, nor would it have gained the widespread acceptance and use it enjoys today.”
