The American Coalition for Ethanol has adopted the theme, “Proud History, Bright Future,” for its upcoming 25th annual ACE Ethanol Conference, Aug. 8-10 in Omaha, Neb.

“Our 25th anniversary conference will provide forward-looking previews on the policy and market development opportunities and challenges facing the U.S. ethanol industry,” said ACE Executive Vice President Brian Jennings. “Ethanol producers are feeling the effects of the E10 blend wall, we are in the midst of introducing E15 to the market, and expectations are high for progress on the advanced and cellulosic ethanol front,” continued Jennings.

Some of the general session topics to be covered at the ACE Conference include an outlook on the markets and policies that will impact ethanol profitability in the future, the role octane and vehicle technology innovations will play for ethanol demand, an update on E15 implementation, product and technology process innovations at ethanol plants, and an update on cellulosic and advanced ethanol.

Breakout sessions at the event are targeted at ethanol plant board members and management, covering topics such as the ABC’s of E15, Quality Assurance for Distillers Grain, Fiduciary and Governance Responsibilities for Ethanol Plant Board Directors, Feedstock Quality and Its Impact on Profitability, and an Energy Market Price Outlook.

“As we celebrate ACE’s 25th year, the conference will show how far we’ve come as an industry and how we as a grassroots organization are positioned to help the industry evolve, innovate, and succeed well into the future,” Jennings said.
