The annual “State of the Ethanol Industry” address by Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) president and CEO Bob Dinneen is coming up this morning at 8:15 am central time live from the 23rd National Ethanol Conference in San Antonio, Texas. The live feed will be on the AgWired Facebook page.
We have been doing a live video stream of this address since 2007, but it is much easier these days with Facebook Live! For a walk down memory lane, you can check out all of the RFA NEC photo albums since 2007.
You can expect the “Reverend of Renewable Fuels” to have an especially passionate sermon this year, particularly targeted at the Lone Star State’s Senator Ted Cruz, who has been holding up the nomination of Bill Northey for USDA to force changes in the Renewable Fuel Standard. Yesterday, Dinneen penned a scathing op-ed for the San Antonio newspaper calling out Sen. Cruz for “scapegoating” the RFS.
