Registration is now open for the Renewable Fuels Association’s 27th annual National Ethanol Conference, to be held in New Orleans Feb. 21-23, 2022. With the theme “Zeroing In on New Opportunities,” attendees will have the opportunity to look ahead to the bright future of the U.S. low-carbon ethanol industry, said RFA Board Chairperson Jeanne McCaherty, CEO of Guardian Energy.


“As much as the U.S. ethanol industry has been challenged the past few years, it’s easy to be optimistic about our future—and the 2022 theme puts these coming opportunities in the spotlight,” McCaherty said. “RFA’s member companies are focused on decarbonization, innovation, and developing new markets for ethanol and other co-products. These opportunities and many others will be on full display in New Orleans. We have much to share and much to learn from each other, and the National Ethanol Conference remains the top opportunity for networking and moving our industry forward.”


The NEC is the nation’s most widely attended executive-level conference for the ethanol industry, regularly reaching about 1,000 industry leaders and professionals. From emerging technologies and new uses to opportunities in global carbon reduction policies—and featuring fresh market insights and international and domestic marketplace developments—there is much to learn and experience at the NEC, where comprehensive learning sessions are interspersed with numerous networking opportunities to help the industry stay connected and collaborative.
