Ethanol was showcased to Republican National Convention goers this week during an event sponsored by the Minnesota Agri-Growth Council.
The Renewable Fuels Association and Minnesota’s ethanol producers joined together to be one of the sponsors of AgNite, a non-partisan event to celebrate the food, agriculture and biofuel industries of the state and nation. The event was held in the historic Minneapolis Depot and drew over 4,000 attendees who browsed through exhibits, ate local foods and listened to music.
The biofuels industry was also well represented by two of the event’s top level sponsors, the Minnesota Corn Growers Association and CHS, which is a supplier and distributor of both ethanol and biodiesel and an owner of ethanol manufacturer US BioEnergy. Another of the event sponsors was ethanol plant design-builder Fagen, Inc. of Granite Falls, MN.
