Following this morning’s opening plenary session at the Fuel Ethanol Workshop, Tom Buis, CEO, Growth Energy, met with members of the press. He gave us an overview of where things stand on a number of issues facing the ethanol industry before taking questions. I’ve posted the overview for you to listen to.
Tom’s farm is right down the road from Indianapolis so he was very happy to come to FEW this year. He says that even with all the challenges facing the industry there are a lot of opportunities. He started out discussing the most recent political maneuvering on ethanol policy. He says they will continue to work on policy issues like infrastructure, tax credit extensions and Federal investment into flex fuel technology. He says the big question is “Where do we find a legislative vehicle that actually is going to get enacted into law?” You can listen to or download Tom’s remarks on this and other issues here.
