From emerging technologies and new uses to opportunities in global carbon reduction policies, market insights, and international and domestic marketplace developments, there is much to learn and experience at the 27th Annual National Ethanol Conference: Zeroing in on New Opportunities.

New Orleans is the place where the ethanol industry is meeting this week and Renewable Fuels Association president and CEO Geoff Cooper says the agenda is packed but the best reason to go is to be in person again. “We’re just looking forward to seeing everybody again. It’s been two years since we’ve been able to have this event in person,” said Cooper. “The National Ethanol Conference really is the premier networking event for the ethanol industry.”

The theme “Zeroing in on New Opportunities” focuses on the commitment of the industry to achieving net zero emissions for ethanol by 2050 or sooner. “We’re going to spend a lot of time talking about how to achieve that goal which is admittedly ambitious but I believe is absolutely achievable,” said Cooper.
