Minneapolis, Aug 20 – The Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association (MBA) is pleased to announced that ERI Solutions, Inc. has become MBA’s latest vendor member.

“We are excited to add ERI Solutions to our portfolio of vendor members. ERI Solutions provides environmental compliance and sustainability, health and safety, process safety, non-destructive testing and insurance program management services to the ethanol industry,” said Tim Rudnicki, MBA’s executive director.

ERI Solutions began working with four ethanol production facilities in 2003with a goal of finding cost effective insurance. Today, it provides services to 50 companies that represent over 70 ethanol production facilities.

ERI Solutions understands the risks associated with ethanol production and has developed the service capabilities to minimize or eliminate those risks.

It also manages Ethanol Risk Management (ERM) SPC, Ltd. which is a captive insurance program that was developed exclusively for ethanol producers that takes loss control and safety seriously. Its success relates to a return of underwriting profits to the ethanol producers instead of giving them away to the insurance marketplace.

“ERI Solution’s mission is to provide professional services to eliminate avoidable risks, and to reduce or transfer unavoidable risks of employee injury, liability, property damage and regulatory non-compliance. Our motto is ‘Your risk is our business’ and we take it very seriously,” said Nathan Vander Griend, president of ERI Solutions.

Besides MBA, ERI Solutions also supports the activities of the following organizations : American Coalition for Ethanol, Growth Energy, Iowa Renewable Fuels Association, Renewable Fuels Association and the Urban Air Initiative.

The company also developed and operates the Fueling Truth You Tube channel.

“Our day job at ERI Solutions is minimizing, eliminating or transferring the ethanol industry’s operational risks, but after hours and any chance we get we are working to get the word out about ethanol being a superior motor fuel in most every aspect,” Vander Griend said.

With ERI Solutions on board, MBA now was 13 vendor members.
