Global Panel Wraps Up #RFANEC18

UNICA’s Elizabeth Farina with RFA’s Bob Dinneen

The National Ethanol Conference concluded this week with the always popular panel of international industry organization leaders.

Bliss Baker with the Global Renewable Fuels Alliance moderated the discussion which included Emmanuel Desplechin, ePURE; Jim Grey, Renewable Industries Canada; Elizabeth Farina, Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA); and Bob Dinneen, Renewable Fuels Association.

As always, Dinneen used the panel to publicly address any issues the global leaders may be having, which this year focused on Brazil’s imposition of a U.S. ethanol import tariff last year. Farina read an statement on “what we call a temporary solution to a temporary problem” and Dinneen responded by “attempting to be Canadian-nice about it.”
