Growth Energy was created in November 2008 and so is celebrating ten years of advocating for ethanol this month. This edition of the Driving Ethanol podcast is the first in a series of three focusing on a decade of accomplishments for the organization.
For this podcast, we pulled some historical audio from the archives for comments from the early years with industry leaders, including Greg Krissek, who was with ethanol plant engineering firm ICM, Inc at the time, first Growth Energy co-chairs Ret. Gen. Wesley Clark and former Rep. Jim Nussle of Iowa, first CEO Tom Buis and current CEO Emily Skor, and President Barack Obama.
Driving Ethanol is a subscribable podcast that can be found in iTunes and other podcast directories.
A complete interview with Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor on the 10th anniversary is also available. Skor discusses how the organization has made strides in proving ethanol’s performance value, growing biofuels markets, and advocating for ethanol policy. Background information can be found at GrowthEnergy.org.
