“Each year, the Fuel Ethanol Workshop and Expo provides another terrific opportunity for renewable fuel leaders to come together, and I’m looking forward to sharing a message that celebrates our recent successes and examines the many opportunities in front of us,” said RFA President and CEO Geoff Cooper. “From sustainable aviation fuels to carbon capture to plug-in hybrid FFVs, this is a time of remarkable innovation and advancement in the ethanol industry, and I am excited to be sharing RFA’s vision for the future.”
