ACE Conference Focus on Low Carbon Ethanol

Cindy Zimmerman

The 34th annual American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) conference coming up later this month in Minneapolis will showcase the low carbon benefits of corn ethanol and the benefits of clean fuel policies at the state and federal levels to increase ethanol demand.

The conference covers all things carbon from the status of clean fuel policies, and insight for ethanol producers when developing a carbon strategy and measuring project value, including diversification and carbon sequestration projects, to how ethanol producers can calculate their carbon intensity score.

The first day of presentations includes a general session moderated by John Christianson of Christianson PLLP, who served on the Minnesota Governor’s Council on Biofuels, that will cover developments in key states and national efforts to advance clean fuel policy and low carbon fuel standards with Brendan Jordan, Vice President of Transportation and Fuels with Great Plains Institute, and Jonathon Lehman, a principal with Cultivating Conservation consulting service and ACE Lobbyist.

Other carbon-focused sessions include – Insights on Carbon: Navigating Verification and Measuring Project Value – Christianson PLLP; Destination Biocampus – Fluid Quip Technologies; Developing a Carbon Strategy – P&E Solutions LLC, Bioleap Inc. and Whitefox; Efficient Operational Strategies for Feed Diversification and Lower CI Score for Ethanol Biorefineries – ICM Inc.; Calculating Your Carbon Intensity – Ron Alverson with Dakota Ethanol; Accelerating Demand for Ethanol – ClearFlame Engine Technologies; and From Net-Zero to Net-Negative Carbon: Accelerating Ethanol’s Advantage – Summit Carbon Solutions.
