We are deeply proud and grateful to be part of an industry who is stepping up to serve during this COVID-19 crisis. Growth Energy members such Absolute Energy and Green Plains, Inc. have donated ethanol to make hand sanitizer; Novozymes shared that they are “co-developing a method of washing plastic test plates for COVID-19 testing, so they can be safely reused”; and ADM pledged $1 million to organizations fighting the pandemic. These are just a few examples of the awesome work being done across the ag and biofuel industry, but certainly not all of it.
And these acts of kindness are not going unnoticed. On April 1, 2020, USDA Secretary Perdue released a video thanking ethanol producers for all of your good deeds.
Rural communities embody the American spirit of hard work and generosity. We take care of one another, and there’s no better time to do that than now. So we’d like to echo Secretary Perdue and say thank you for sticking with us, and for all that you’re doing to make our industry, and our country, a better place.
Excited about this one: I'll be going on @OfficialRFDTV Monday evening with incredible rural champions @NFUDC to talk about the hardworking people in the biofuels industry. https://t.co/W6PV5mtRAR
Tune in to @OfficialRFDTV Monday night for a conversation about the state of the farm economy and the biofuels industry, featuring @GrowthEnergy’s Emily Skor and NFU President Rob Larew. https://t.co/AdcbBeMW0o
