Reporters covering the National Ethanol Conference in San Diego had questions about a number of topics when given the opportunity to have a press “scrum” with Renewable Fuels Association president and CEO Bob Dinneen.
The first questions centered on the discussion Dinneen had on stage at the NEC with petroleum industry representatives and how the industries can work together. “I’ve been trying to move the dialogue to a different plane where we’re talking about the future growth and certainty for both our industries,” he said.
One issue Dinneen ran out of time to discuss with the panel was the point of obligation change requested by the petroleum industry under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which was requested by the petroleum industry. “Our view is that it should not change, I think it would create a lot of uncertainty in the program that would not be healthy,” said Dinneen. “What happens with that issue I can’t judge.”
