McDonald to Help NACF in Gulf Spill Cleanup Effort
National Clean Fuels (NACF) has selected and engaged Norris McDonald, an environmentalist with nearly 30 years environment and energy experience.
The company has seized the opportunity to convert liquid separation and processing equipment it owns in Poteet, Texas for use in separating oil from contaminated water caused by the BP Gulf oil spill. The company is concentrating business on the removal of dispersant chemicals and oil from the deeper waters of the Gulf and cleaning the contaminated shoreline and estuary waters.
“I am enthusiastic about ensuring NACF’s endeavors in the Gulf spill clean-up are done with a proper focus on the environment,” stated McDonald. “There is a lot of work to do here and it will take years to correct the damage that has been done. I have high hopes for NACF’s capabilities in this endeavor.”
McDonald founded the Center for Environment, Commerce and Energy in 1985 and has served as its president since inception. McDonald is also the founder and president of the African American Environmentalist Association. Prior to 1985, McDonald served as a director with the Environmental Policy Institute (now known as the Friends of the Earth).
McDonald has published numerous energy and environmental policy documents and has given expert environmental and energy related testimony before the U.S. Senate, U.S. House congressional committees, agencies, state legislatures and public service commissions.
