The announcement occurs on the eve of FlexEnergy's August 12th celebration of the inaugural installation of the FlexPowerstation (http://classic.cnbc.com/id/38369694), technology that allows landfills to transform harmful and previously unusable methane gas into clean energy. Johnson will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the event, at which many environmental and political leaders are expected to be in attendance.
"I am honored to accept this appointment to a group I hold in high regard," says Johnson. "FlexEnergy is a dynamic organization at the forefront of technology that will allow the world to generate the power we need without harming the environment.

He is also the recipient of the White House's Presidential Rank Award, the highest award bestowed to civilian federal employees.
FlexEnergy (www.flexenergy.com) is committed to providing systems to utilize existing, unconventional energy sources to create new, sustainable solutions. Flex technology has taken one of the world's largest sources of greenhouse gases and transformed it into an energy source for the clean generation of electricity, offering energy recovery where it was previously impossible.
Three hundred million tons of methane escapes into the atmosphere each year, most too dilute for current technology to destroy. The FlexPowerstation converts gases with even low concentrations of methane to clean, renewable energy. Unlike other technologies, the FlexPowerstation creates electricity with almost no NOx or CO emissions, providing a breakthrough solution for landfills, coal mines and manufacturers helping to ensure compliance with emissions regulations.
