Cindy has been working on the ACE Annual Conference and you can find her stories on Energy.AgWired.com and also in our AgNewsWire virtual newsroom. Here’s a taste from the start of the conference.

The increased emphasis on reducing carbon provides a great opportunity for the ethanol industry and everything counts when it comes to getting that carbon score down.

In his opening remarks at the organization’s annual meeting in Minneapolis this week, American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) CEO Brian Jennings congratulated the ethanol producers in attendance for the investments they have already made in lowering carbon intensity.

“The common thread for this investment activity is appreciation for the fact that everything indeed counts, from how the bushels of corn are produced to the BTUs powering your facility, counting carbon is the name of the game,” said Jennings.

Panels during the first general session for the conference included Untangling and Maximizing IRA Biofuel Incentives, and Cultivating Progress: Climate-Smart Farming for Carbon Markets, both focused on the potential for the ethanol industry in the carbon market.

Listen to Jennings’ opening remarks below.
