Turn down the intensity for carbon, turn it up for “The ACE.” Intensity is the theme for the American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) 35th annual conference coming up August 10-12 in Omaha.
Katie Muckenhirn, ACE Vice President of Public Affairs, says they are branding the 35-year-old conference as The ACE. “It also stands for the American Conference on Ethanol,” she said.
This year’s ACE agenda will offer a lot of intensity. “It not only embodies this efficiency quest that producers have to drive down their carbon intensity scores, but also how the industry is really concentrating on new markets and growth opportunities.”
That incluees information on sustainable aviation fuel and hydrogen market potential, carbon capture and storage, getting the most out of coproducts like distillers corn oil, carbon intensity scoring, hiring practices and labor challenges, IT security, driving value to agriculture through low carbon solutions, tax credits in new project investments, and more.
More on the agenda will be released over the coming months and there are still sponsorships availablle. Online event registration is open and reduced rate reservations are available at the event hotel: the Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District. All conference details can be found at ethanol.org/events/conference.
