Omaha, Neb. — In her keynote address kicking off the 34th Annual International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo (FEW), Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor emphasized how the biofuels industry emerged victorious from a tumultuous 2017, ready to move the industry forward through what is shaping up be another year of attacks.
“How and why we overcame challenges in 2017 is worth revisiting because the battles ahead are tougher and higher-stakes, and we need to remind ourselves that we have what it takes to win,” Skor said.
“…the road ahead is still littered with roadblocks and obstacles that could take us off course if we don’t stick together as a united force for the biofuels industry, the farm economy, and American consumers. Our critics are more active than ever – not because we are weak, but because we are strong.”
This year’s FEW is being held at the CenturyLink Center Omaha in Omaha, Neb., June 11-13. The FEW provides the ethanol industry with cutting-edge content and unparalleled networking opportunities in a dynamic business-to-business environment. As the largest, longest-running ethanol conference in the world, FEW is renowned for its superb programming — powered by Ethanol Producer Magazine – that maintains a strong focus on commercial-scale ethanol production, new technology, and near-term research and development.
Also during FEW 2018, Growth Energy staff will speak on panels ranging in topics from analyzing the political climate around renewable fuels to market barriers and penetration. See the list below for event times and topics, as well as which Growth Energy staff will be presenting. For more information, see the full FEW agenda.
Growth Energy hopes these talks will demonstrate how we continue to lead the biofuel industry in policy and market innovations. As a vibrant association, our participation in this conference will allow attendees greater insights into how to improve their own businesses and best defend the RFS.

President Trump committed to #E15YearRound to strengthen rural economies – the EPA is putting his promise in danger. Rural communities are counting on Secretary Perdue to honor the President’s promise and hold the EPA accountable. #RFSworks https://t.co/KeF9CZzdfL @GrowthEnergy
