Off to a Great Start

"Ethanol and Idaho: Partners for the Future"

By John Crockett: Following the January workshop in Boise, the Idaho Energy Division organized and conducted two smaller ethanol workshops. On March 8 over 100 people attended an ethanol workshop in small community of Fruitland in Payette County of southeastern Idaho. On March 9 about 140 people attended a similar workshop in Twin Falls in south central Idaho. The workshops featured David Kolsrud and Ralph Groschen from Minnesota, as well as several state ethanol experts. On the afternoon of March 8, David and Ralph also made ethanol presentations before the joint House and Senate Agricultural Affairs Committees of the Idaho legislature. Idaho Energy Division staff has received strong support from all four of Idaho's Congressional delegation, Governor Dirk Kempthorne, numerous state legislators, and continues working closely with Payette and Twin Falls Counties on feasibility of ethanol production. Two other areas of the state have also expressed a strong interest towards the investigation of ethanol plants.

In a continuing effort to increase ethanol use in state, Idaho Energy Division has joined in a partnership with the GSA Fleet Managers. Two GSA workshops are planned in April to promote ethanol and biodiesel use by Idaho Federal fleets.
