Dennis Gengenbach, Nebraska Corn Board, presents award to RFA’s Robert White

The Nebraska Corn Board last week presented Renewable Fuels Association Vice President of Industry Relations Robert White with its 2017 Ethanol Industry Appreciation Award for his years of support. White, a Kansas native, is the first non-Nebraskan recipient.

“Mr. White leads the effort to increase the availability and consumption of ethanol through consumer education, social media and marketing,” said Dennis Gengenbach, secretary and treasurer with the Nebraska Corn Board. “He is a well-sought out technical expert for the industry on ethanol, E15, E85 and blender pumps.”

The Ethanol Industry Appreciation Award was first presented in 2007 and is given to individuals or industry partners who go above and beyond to help ethanol markets and expand demand for ethanol.

“I have the unique privilege of interacting with farmers daily, and enjoy the relationships that have developed over the years working together to expand the market for corn and ethanol,” said White, who works with petroleum marketers and retailers, state and federal agencies, commercial fleets, and individual consumers to increase awareness about the benefits of ethanol and encourage greater development and use of renewable fuels.
