Rather than update the previous post announcement on this I thought I’d just copy the post from Domestic Fuel:
Here’s a post I wish I didn’t have to write. Actually I was on my way home to link you to the posts we did yesterday about the big opening race of the Indy Racing League in Homestead, FL. That’s because it’s the first race in which all the cars will be running on a blend of ethanol and one …
The idea of blogging college students seems to be catching on. Over on Domestic Fuel, we’re getting some daily reports from students who are on a cross country tour fueled by E85. They’re in a Chevy Avalanche. We just got the first reports in today and I’m sure Cindy will have them posted later. You can see the original post on it here.
Posting has been a little light this week but I will have a lot coming out over the next couple days. ZimmComm has been a little busy evolving ever further into the new media world. For that reason we’re changing our name to ZimmComm New Media, LLC. We’re pretty much all about new media now, even though a lot of what we do still involved marketing and communications. As a former colleague used to say about his organization, “We’re a constantly evolving strategy.”
If you’re going to switch teams, pick a good one. That’s what Team Ethanol driver Paul Dana did. The rumor was floating around until confirmation came today at an Indy Racing League press conference. Paul Dana will now be driving for Rahal Letterman Racing, which makes him a teammate to Danica Patrick.
The Ethanol Promotion and Information Council has some promotion results to be proud of.
CornTalk is the week’y interview program of the Missouri Corn Growers Association. This week MCGA President, Terry Hilgedick, talks about how the ethanol industry has already surpassed next year’s Renewable Fuels Standard production quota. He describes how grower-owned ethanol plant production is increasing in Missouri and looks forward to next spring’s legislative session and Missouri Governor Matt Blunt’s pledge to support a statewide 10% ethanol/gas blend requirement.
In just a few short months the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council (EPIC) has really put together some fantastic projects to promote ethanol as an excellent renewable energy fuel source. The organization has grown in membership and boasts significant backing for its future. Plans are being made now for 2006 and we look forward to what they have in mind. To find out more I interviewed EPIC Executive Director, Tom Slunecka for this week’s ZimmCast. Tom talks about the organization, some of their research and ways they are continuing to promote ethanol to the public.
We’ve had this week’s CornTalk from the Missouri Corn Growers Association available to you podcast subscribers all week. I’m just now getting it posted though so pardon the delay.
