Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spirits has partnered with the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) as the title sponsor of the Young Professionals Network (YPN) in 2021. Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spirits (LBDS) is an industry leader in supplying fermentation products and value-added services to the ethanol industry.
“Education is an important part of our mission in serving the ethanol industry,” said Craig Pilgrim, Vice President of Marketing and New Product Development at Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spirits. “The Young Professionals Network is off to a great start in recruiting and creating a dynamic membership base. We’re eager to assist them in ensuring that this new program is a success and provide unique learning opportunities that allow the YPN members to grow within the ethanol industry.”
RFA launched the YPN in July to bring together innovative and dedicated young professionals in the ethanol industry who are 39 years old and younger, giving them the ability to develop their professional skills, grow their network in the renewable fuels industry, advance their respective businesses forward, and support the national agenda of the U.S. ethanol industry.
As of October 7, the YPN had 79 members from companies across the ethanol industry, including ethanol producers, product and service providers, state and federal trade organizations, commodity groups, and investment firms.
