There are many opportunities for market growth in the ethanol space, and the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) works closely with the ethanol associations to help share the story of the benefits of ethanol and drive demand locally and in Washington D.C.
Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor sat down with Iowa corn farmer and Ethanol Action Team Vice Chair Kelly Nieuwenhuis to talk about small refinery exemptions (SRE’s), E15 in the marketplace and future market growth opportunities. “There are a lot of positives looking forward, and I’m looking forward to playing offense instead of defense,” Nieuwenhuis said. “It’s time to get in the lead and share our message and make sure everyone knows the benefits of biofuels.”
During the conversation, Skor mentioned the industry is at a critical juncture for biofuels. “At Growth Energy, we will continue to work with the National Corn Growers and the ethanol industry because when we speak with one voice, that’s when we have the best chance to make impactful differences for producers everywhere.”
