Texas-based biodiesel production, marketing and distribution company Earth Biofuels Inc. plans to change its name to Evolution Energy Inc. by the end of March. As well, the company recently announced it has appointed Douglas Faulkner, a former USDA official, to its advisory board.

Faulkner served as Acting Under Secretary of Rural Development and Acting Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy at the USDA under President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2008. Faulkner has held positions in the Executive Branch for nearly 30 years and has experience on issues ranging from foreign policy to economic development. He recently cofounded and is president of Chrysalis Energy Partners, a Washington D.C. consultant firm specializing in the renewable energy and energy efficiency markets.

Earth Biofuels plans to utilize Faulkner and Chrysalis to aid in developing the company's tactics and strategy and to assist with working with federal agencies, specifically the USDA, the U.S. DOE and the U.S. EPA.

In addition to its new strategy plan, by the end of March Earth Biofuels plans to change its name to Evolution Energy Inc. A company spokesman told Biodiesel Magazine the name change is being made because "'Earth' is too all inclusive" for the company's plan. A press release will be issued by the company when the name change is made effective.
