We attended the 25th National Ethanol Conference last week, our 14th in a row. But this one was definitely a history maker with an appearance by George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States. We talked with Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) Senior Strategic Advisor Bob Dinneen about 25 years of ethanol advancement and being able to hear from the former president who signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005, creating the original Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).
We also have an interesting interview from the conference with Kenny Hauk of Hauk Designs, who built a custom Jeep Wrangler for RFA that runs on up to 85 percent ethanol. It is a monster machine that will be touring the country with RFA and Kenny loves to talk about how he learned of ethanol’s high octane capabilities while building it. Kenny is pictured in front of the Jeep with Robert White, RFA; Derek Tidd, Tidd Racing; and Brian Sowers, Crappie Masters who all participated in a panel on the off-road benefits of ethanol. You can watch Kenny’s show, Hauk Machines, on Amazon Prime. The shows on the Jeep build are in season two.
I hope you enjoy it and thank you for listening.
