The opening general session is in progress here at the National Ethanol Conference. Welcoming everyone was Ron Miller, Chairman of the Renewable Fuels Association.
Ron says 2006 was a “year to remember” in the ethanol industry. He remembered the days when the business wasn’t like it is today. He credits much of the success of the industry to the companies and individuals who have worked together to move forward. He says that 46 percent of the gasoline in America is blended with ethanol.
He encouraged companies who have not joined RFA to do so. He says that having new members in the growing RFA family will further unify the industry voice and assist in continuing the growth and progress of the business.
