Ethanol Coalition Holding Annual Conference This Week

Ethanol Coalition Holding Annual Conference This Week

American Coalition for Ethanol members are gathering in Des Moines this week, today through Wednesday for their 26th. Annual conference.  Executive Vice President Brian Jennings says one of the highlights of the event will be Wednesday when participants will hear about higher blends of ethanol and how they fit in with newly developed engines.

Jennings says they’ll be talking about issues critical to the industry including higher blend levels and their effect and how renewables are improving the environmental footprint.

Jennings says it’s also a great opportunity for biofuel supporters to speak with their elected officials about the need to retain the Renewable Fuel Standard.

The conference runs through Wednesday.
