By Renewable Fuels Association | October 01, 2015

The Renewable Fuels Association announced the election of officers for the board of directors at its annual membership meeting in Omaha, Nebraska.

The RFA re-elected Randall Doyal, general manager and CEO at Al-Corn Clean Fuel, to chair the board of directors.

Doyal’s ethanol facility, located in Claremont, Minnesota, produces 50 MMgy of ethanol annually. His experience in the ethanol industry began in 1982 at Mountain Development Company. In addition to Al-Corn Clean Fuel, Doyal serves as Chairman of the Board at Guardian Energy, LLC and the Renewable Products Marketing Group. He previously served as vice-chairman and treasurer of the RFA.

“I am truly humbled that my peers have, once again, selected me to head the Renewable Fuels Association. The RFA is a strong and vocal advocate for the ethanol industry, and its technical knowledge, political influence, and market acumen are unmatched,” said Doyal.

 “The economic and environmental benefits of ethanol have been well established. Ethanol has significantly increased our nation’s energy security by decreasing our dependence on foreign sources of oil. It has also reduced greenhouse gas emissions, lowered prices at the pump, and revitalized rural communities. I look forward to another year of working side by side with RFA’s highly professional staff and other producers to protect the Renewable Fuel Standard and expand market access at home and abroad.”

RFA also elected:  Vice chairman, Mick Henderson, Commonwealth Energy in Hopkinsville, Kentucky; treasurer, Jim Seurer, Glacial Lakes Energy, LLC in Watertown, South Dakota and president, Bob Dinneen, Renewable Fuels Association in Washington, D.C.
