As our members converged in Washington, D.C. for our annual biofuels summit, they heard the latest on the ethanol industry outlook before taking to the Hill to speak with their elected officials. To kick things off, our CEO Emily Skor welcomed members, gave an overview of the current political landscape in Washington, and celebrated our accomplishments so far:

“This meeting should be a victory celebration. We have, for the first time in history, a higher-blend fuel that is not niche, it is not seasonal, it is regular unleaded 88,” Skor said. “And this is the most significant milestone for this industry since the RFS was expanded in 2007.”

Skor expanded on this by addressing the challenges that lay ahead, but she remained optimistic citing the resolve that we have demonstrated and our playbook to harness it again:

“…What we have is the heart and soul of [ethanol producers] and your voice – the heartland. We know how to express that voice and augment and amplify it. That is the playbook that created the crescendo, the echo chamber and the demand to receive RVP, and that’s what we have to continue doing in the days and weeks ahead.”

As negotiations over the next relief bill continue, the biofuel industry is reeling after staggering losses over the last several months. Whatever aid is passed must include support for biofuels, and our champions in Congress delivered that message to leadership today. https://t.co/yABlENMgUD

Members of both parties — Republican and Democratic — support the biofuel industry, simply because it's the right thing for their constituents. Rep. @RodneyDavis has long been a part of the bipartisan negotiations that support our industry, and we're grateful for him. https://t.co/eHeH6SNdI0
