New Governor to Headline Nebraska Ethanol Forum

Cindy Zimmerman

Newly-elected Governor of Nebraska Jim Pillen will join the Nebraska Ethanol Board and Renewable Fuels Nebraska for the annual Ethanol: Emerging Issues Forum March 6-7 in La Vista, Nebraska.

Gov. Pillen and Dr. Venus Welch-White, senior advisor to the Agricultural Advisor of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will headline the event and discuss how Nebraska ethanol plays a role in agriculture, the economy, and sustainability. The Innovation Showcase highlights three carbon-reducing technologies and reviews the USDA Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) project in South Dakota.

This year’s Forum also includes resources to learn about investing in decarbonization projects and infrastructure. The U.S. Department of Energy and USDA will review past, current, and future funding, while Advanced Resources International helps make economic sense of carbon marketing and shows ethanol producers how credits can stack up in their favor.

Registration and a detailed agenda are available at Nebraska ethanol producers, students, media, and Nebraska legislators are welcome to attend at no cost. Registration ends Feb. 26.
