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.
