F.O. Licht’s World Ethanol 2009 12th annual conference kicks off today in Paris, France where leaders in ethanol development around the world have gathered.

The conference features perspectives on global ethanol development from industry leaders in countries such as the United States, Brazil, India, France, Germany, Demark, Belgium and Nigeria.

Among the US representatives is Bob Dinneen, President and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), who will be presenting to the conference “American Ethanol – The Path Forward” which will include a look at expanding ethanol markets and addressing unsubstantiated claims about the environmental impact of ethanol. Following Dinneen’s presentation will be Margo Oge, Director of the EPA’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality, who will talk about “Life-Cycle Assessments for the Renewable Fuels Standard.” Both will speak to the conference Tuesday morning, Paris time.
