Growth Energy today announced four-star retired General Wesley Clark as the organization’s co-chairman.
“It’s a new time for ethanol,” said General Clark during a press conference this morning. “I am very impressed with this industry. What we are doing for national security is profound.”
In his new role at Growth Energy, Clark will steer the organization towards meeting its goals of boosting our economy through the creation of green-collar jobs, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, expanding ethanol use in gasoline, and decreasing our dependence on foreign oil. “Across the board, this is a win, win, win, win for America,” Clark said.
He outlined what he sees as a strategic plan for the ethanol industry during the press conference, which includes using corn-based ethanol to move into cellulosic ethanol to meet the needs of the nation.
