Some of the biofuel industry’s top leaders took to the stage at the Fuel Ethanol Workshop (FEW) this week to discuss opportunities for the biofuels industry to help it achieve its true potential in the light of the Renewable Fuel Standard and the EPA’s apparent dragging of the feet in getting renewable fuel volumes to mandated levels and higher. One element of the discussion was continuing to build out infrastructure for mid-level and higher level blends of ethanol such as E15 and E85, an effort that would break through the so-called blend wall.
The panel discussion, “Pathways to Fully Realizing the Bold Promise of the Broader Biofuels Industry,” was moderated by Tim Portz, executive editor of Ethanol Producer Magazine. Panelists included:
- Brian Jennings, Executive Vice President, American Coalition for Ethanol
- Geoff Cooper, Senior Vice President, Renewable Fuels Association
- Anne Steckel, Vice President of Federal Affairs, National Biodiesel Board
- Brooke Coleman, Executive Director, Advanced Biofuels Business Council
