“Proud History, Bright Future” Theme for Ethanol Event

Joanna Schroeder

“Proud History, Bright Future” is the theme for the upcoming 25th annual ACE Ethanol Conference to be held August 8-10th in Omaha, Nebraska. The conference will cover topics such as an outlook on markets and policies that will impact ethanol plant profitability; the role octane and vehicle technology innovations will play for ethanol demand; an update on E15 implementation; product and technology process innovations at ethanol plants; an update on cellulosic and advanced ethanol technologies; and more.

“Our 25th anniversary conference will provide forward-looking previews on the policy and market development opportunities and challenges facing the U.S. ethanol industry,” said Brian Jennings, ACE’s executive vice president. “Ethanol producers are feeling the effects of the E10 blend wall; we are in the midst of introducing E15 to the market; and expectations are high for progress on the advanced and cellulosic ethanol front.”

Jennings said the conference is a mix of general sessions and breakout sessions and many of them will be very useful for ethanol plant board members and management. Session titles include:

  • ABC’s of E15
  • Quality Assurance for Distillers Grain
  • Fiduciary and Governance Responsibilities for Ethanol Plant Board Directors
  • Feedstock Quality and Its Impact on Profitability
  • Energy Market Price Outlook

Jennings added, “As we celebrate ACE’s 25th year, the conference will show how far we’ve come as an industry and how we as a grassroots organization are positioned to help the industry evolve, innovate, and succeed well into the future.”
