Tom Holm is a man on a mission to change the way Americans travel our favorite roadways without becoming enslaved to foreign oil based fuels. In early 2011, Tom completed a 10,000-mile Eco Trek from coast to coast and back powered solely by cellulosic ethanol. It's a fuel derived from cornhusks, stalks, and other plant byproducts and is currently produced by a company named POET. We'll hear more about them in a future podcast; but today's conversation with Tom talks about the incredible event that turned his life around 180 degrees to plant based fuels and is now leading him on a quest that could have profound impact on the defenses of our nation. The Cellulosic Ethanol used in the EcoTrek Tour is produced by POET. You can follow Tom's entire Eco Trek journey through his blog. Find out more about the Eco Trek Foundation.
