IET consolidates headquarters

Since securing a $50 million recycling contract with Dow Corning Corp. in October, Integrated Environmental Technologies LLC in Richland, Wash., continues to see changes. "I just consolidated my management team to one location," said IET President and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Surma. The management team will now be headquartered in Bend, Ore.

Surma said the company is optimistic about the future of methanol and biodiesel. Despite occasional slumps in the market, it "looks like [biodiesel is] here to stay," he said.
