The 2016 National Advanced Biofuels Conference & Expo took place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this week, hosting a number of panels surrounding the advanced biofuels and biobased chemical industries. Everything from technology scale-up, technology integration, project finance, policy, markets and more were discussed.
This year’s conference was colocated with the International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo. Both conferences were kicked off with a general session, which included a keynote address from Growth Energy’s newly appointed CEO Emily Skor. She highlighted her optimism for the ethanol and advanced biofuels industries, as well as her main areas of focus as CEO, including federal policy, increasing consumer choice while driving the demand for higher fuel blends and developing new markets for export.
“The RFS is the backbone of a very competitive marketplace,” Skor said. “It is the most successful clean energy policy committed to securing a better, healthier future for the next generation.”
