Anyway, let's boil down the rah rah boilerplate to the essential elements of the story.
The fledgling Composite Recycling Technology Center will unveil plans by Oct. 31 to begin producing its first commercial product, CEO Bob Larsen said Monday.
Larsen predicted that income from total sales is expected to be $100,000 by Dec. 31.
Larsen said, “We have an idea, a design."
“We’ve got to nail down the sales and distribution network and got to get people outside of our organization to test and make sure the product does what we want it to.”
By day, he's Bob Larsen, bullshit baffler of boards...
Further funding came from a $1 million Clallam County Opportunity Fund grant and $1.35 million in Port funding in 2015-17 for economic development services.
The inability to obtain a government Clean Energy Fund grant “really hurt” the CRTC’s progress, Larsen said, adding it stalled development by three or four months.
Third-quarter goals include completing and validating a prototype of a product, finalizing a “market channel” for the high-performance sports-equipment item and hiring an engineer and a technician, according to Larsen’s PowerPoint.
But production efforts will encounter a “significant barrier” if no Clean Energy Funds 2 are awarded, according to the presentation.
...But by night, he's Karen Goschen,
a government grant grabbing good time gal.
I thought these Free Market, Trump-voting Republican business types hated government handouts...I guess it just depends on whose hand is sticking out, eh?
