ForeverGreen Enterprises (FGE) is pleased to announce the selection of The Livingston Group, LLC, (TLG) as the company’s representative and strategic counselor with state and local governments along the U.S. Gulf Coast.
The Livingston Group was created in March 1999 and provides comprehensive public affairs, government relations and lobbying services on a global basis. Recognized as one of the fastest growing government relations firms in Washington, DC, TLG also provides marketing services and public affairs counsel in the areas of coalition building, media outreach and crisis communications for more than 80 domestic and foreign companies.
The Honorable Bob Livingston, Founder and CEO of The Livingston Group, LLC, noted both the national and local importance of this initiative: “Our President has called on Congress and all of us to join in the pursuit of reducing our dependency on oil. ForeverGreen has a sustainable solution – an alternative to petroleum based fuels and chemicals that is not only vital for our energy security, but also our environment. Furthermore, ForeverGreen’s capabilities will provide a strategic advantage for states such as Mississippi and Louisiana who were left with tremendous amounts of waste in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. We believe that ForeverGreen could be instrumental in addressing theses waste issues while providing a vibrant economic development opportunity for the Gulf Coast States.
”Michael Kelly, Co-Founder and CEO of ForeverGreen Enterprises noted, “Our business model coupled with our production platform enable us to deliver enormous economic, environmental and strategic benefits to a wide range of stakeholders in the Alternative Fuels and Waste Conversion sectors. Our opportunities for growth are virtually unlimited and with The Livingston Group as our partner, I believe we have all of the elements in place to deliver these benefits, now.”
FGE manufactures Green Hydrogen, Methanol and other primary industrial materials using waste materials instead of virgin fossil resources as feedstocks. Hydrogen is an essential industrial gas used in energy sectors including gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel refining, rocket fuels, coal-to-liquids processing, and as a rotor coolant in electric power generation. It is also critical for making fertilizers, steel, metal fabrication, and in numerous other applications.
Methanol is used in the production of BioDiesel, as a combustion fuel itself (M100), and to denature Ethanol. It is widely used in the manufacturing of adhesives, paints, plastics, plywood, and in consumer products such as antifreeze and glass cleaners.
FGE’s Co-Founder & CVDO Randy Cole, who spoke this month about Green Hydrogen Economics at the Purdue University Energy Center’s Hydrogen Initiative Symposium said, “America is still addicted to foreign sources of oil, but substituting that for an addiction to foreign sources of Methanol and other critical Alternative Fuel components will not provide for our national energy security. The U.S. BioFuel industry needs a secure, domestic supply of Methanol. Industrial America and the developing Fuel Cell market need an ample supply of low cost Hydrogen. Both Hydrogen and Methanol are used in a rapidly growing number of Fuel Cell applications as well.
FGE is proud to be part of the solution – as well as to bring to market a no-incineration/no-landfill solution for HHW, medical, industrial and other waste materials.”
