Former American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) president Bob Scott likes being able to come to the annual meetings and just catch up with friends, instead of having to “work.”

“It’s been seven of these years since I retired so I can come and relax and just enjoy myself,” said Scott during an interview at the 2016 ACE conference.

The conference in Minneapolis this year kicked off on the 11th anniversary of the signing of the 2005 Energy Policy Act creating the Renewable Fuel Standard and Scott attended that event at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico as president of ACE. “One of the best phone calls I’ve ever gotten was the call that says I’m from the White House and you’re invited to the signing of the RFS in the Energy Bill,” said Scott. “It was great because we’d work a lot on getting the RFS done.”

In this interview, Scott talks about how he thinks the RFS has turned out 11 years later and how the industry should continue moving forward. Interview with Bob Scott, former ACE president
