As the plant build-out continues the work has begun on identifying and codifying the set of processes that will be required to make sustainable biofuel.
I have written here before on the importance of quality. Quality in the production process is a necessity that must be adopted internally and integrated operationally. Towards that end we have begun the workÂ documenting the activities and procedural standards that will make up the core of our quality management and environmental compliance operations guides.
I have made mention in past entries here that I believe thatÂ it is imperative that weÂ operate in a way that drives continuous improvement and reinforces organizational alignment from the top down. But most importantly the operation must perform in a manner that is true to the dream andÂ vision of creating a sustainable approach to biofuels production and delivery.
Not surprisingly setting quality objectives and defining processes has forced a careful examination of the mission as well as our internal capabilities and readiness level as plant production looms near.
I have dedicated a considerable amount of time researching how other producers approach quality. It has been a challenging task, since few organizations operate openly or welcome inquiries from what they view as potential competitors.Â A modicum of the challenge has been offset by myÂ personal experience implementing quality and environmental management systems in a variety of organizations.
The greatest advantageÂ in setting the framework of mission and objectives for the organization I believe is the clarity of cooperative purpose that is beginning to find a voice and take root as a cultural imperative. One day soonÂ Promethean BiofuelsÂ Quality Management System willÂ exist asÂ an organized, living, breathing, and coherent document. I hope that it may also serve as the cornerstone of an organization made strong by a talented and diverse group of people dedicated towards a common purpose.
Make it a better place,
