The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) has added three new board member companies including Aemetis, Inc., Bushmills Ethanol Inc., and E Energy Adams, LLC.
Aemetis, Inc. operates a 55 million gallon per year facility in Keyes, CA. Bushmills Ethanol Inc. is a cooperative made up of 415 farmers that produces 65 million gallons of ethanol per year. E Energy Adams is a locally owned company consisting of nearly 800 investor owners that produces 50 million gallons annually at their dry mill facility. Contributing a combined 170 million gallons of ethanol annually to U.S., these three production refineries individually and collectively are providing jobs, stimulating the economy and helping reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil.
“We are pleased to welcome these new members to the RFA,” said RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen. “The strength of our industry is the involvement of individual companies in working to expand the marketplace for ethanol through thoughtful policies and strategic market development. These new voices will bring important new perspectives to the RFA and further enhance the dynamic initiatives the association is undertaking.”
With the addition of Aemetis, Inc., Bushmills Ethanol Inc., and E Energy Adams LLC, the RFA Board of Directors consists of 50 companies. Every producing member of the RFA receives one vote on the Board of Directors. The RFA is the largest trade association for ethanol producers in the world.
