The 23rd International Fuel Ethanol Workshop is just a few days away now. It is being held next week in St. Louis and Domestic Fuel will be on-hand to cover the opening general session on Wednesday.
Highlights of the opening session include a national update on ethanol from Bob Dinneen with the Renewable Fuels Association, as well as presentations on ethanol industry drivers for agriculture from Gerald Tumbleson of the National Corn Growers Association and Thomas Dorr, USDA Under Secretary of Rural Development.
The keynote address will be on “Climate Change and the Global Energy Future,” featuring the Karen Coshof, producer of the global warming film “The Great Warming.” Coshof will address global warming, the potential consequences of a “business as usual” scenario, and some promising solutions – including the extraordinary opportunities opening up for the ethanol industry.
On-line registration for FEW is still available right now, but better hurry because rates go up June 23.
