Everton Energy LLC, based in Kansas, officially started business on Sept. 12 with the hire of Bert Farrish as CEO. Farrish previously served the USDA for four years as the deputy administrator for commodity operations for the Farm Service Agency, in which he was directly responsible for the administration of ethanol and biodiesel programs. "His background in business, government and as a farmer will allow him to develop Everton into an industry powerhouse in biofuel development," said Leon Trammel, Everton founder and chairman.
Everton's first ethanol venture will be a 100 MMgy plant in Concordia, Kan. It is slated by ICM to begin construction in the first quarter of 2007.
