In her keynote address at the 36th Annual International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo (FEW), Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor provided an update on the industry’s recovery amid COVID-19 and offered an exciting vision for growth in the months and years ahead.
“We approach this decade through the lens of what will drive demand for American Ethanol and propel this industry forward,” Skor said.
“Because we all envision a future without barriers in the marketplace; where E15, not E10, is the new normal and the floor for growth; where infrastructure nationwide supports — and pumps — all ethanol blends; where policymakers globally lean in on ethanol, embracing it as a solution to climate change; and where consumer confidence in ethanol soars to new heights. This vision must carry us through global pandemics and beyond.”
This year, FEW went virtual, holding live webcasts September 15-17. Though virtual, the event continues to provide industry stakeholders with cutting-edge content and unparalleled networking opportunities in a dynamic business-to-business environment. The largest, longest-running ethanol conference in the world, FEW is the ethanol industry’s premier forum for unveiling new technologies and research findings and remains the only event powered by Ethanol Producer Magazine.
Also during this year’s FEW, Growth Energy leadership spoke on two additional panels, offering a roadmap for driving the industry forward through unprecedented times and sharing fresh ideas on best business practices and new ways to uphold the integrity of the Renewable Fuel Standard. These include:

Celebrated the nation's second #E15 standard with @RFNebraska's Dawn Caldwell and Traci Menke. Thank you for your work getting #LB562 signed into law. Nebraskan families will see savings at the pump this summer! cc: @LadyOfAg https://t.co/uPgLthktdZ
It's a great day for Nebraskans! Thank you @TeamPillen and Senator Dorn for advocating for expanded access to #E15 in your state. https://t.co/VnvKCBCgys
Thank you, Governor @TeamPillen and our supporters in the Nebraska legislature for signing into law the Adopt the E15 Access Standard Act. We're excited to see the governor be one of rural America's most effective biofuels champions. https://t.co/0UJRimHuTp
I’m proud to work with my friend and @WaysandMeansGOP colleague @RepLaHood to hold Brazil accountable for its unfair and costly tariffs on #IA04 farmers and ethanol producers. The Biden Administration needs to get its act together and defend our family farmers and rural economy. https://t.co/wy3kEDy9Jk
