The Green Vision of Henry Ford and George Washington Carver: Two Collaborators in the Cause of Clean Industry


Quentin R. Skrabec Jr.


Henry Ford and George Washington Carver had a unique friendship and a shared vision. This book details their paths to “green” manufacturing and the start of the chemurgic movement in America. It covers a number of little known projects such as their efforts to use ethanol as a national fuel, the use of soybeans for plastic production, and the use of waterpower for factories. This study of their collaboration shows how capitalism can drive the green movement and expand American industry.
