During her keynote address at the 2024 Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor will dive into what’s next for biofuels and the broader bioeconomy that the industry supports.

“Today, biofuels are lowering emissions and saving consumers money in Iowa and across the American heartland. Even more, their production also yields an ever-growing array of value-added co-products like high protein animal feed and drives investments in emissions-reducing technologies like carbon capture and sequestration,” said Skor. “The biofuels industry serves as the cornerstone of a broader, expanding bioeconomy — one that will continue to revitalize rural communities across the U.S. I look forward to joining producers and industry partners across Iowa to collaborate on how we can stay on this upward trajectory by enacting smart policies, accelerating innovation, and expanding consumer access to clean, low-carbon bioethanol.”

The 2024 Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit is taking place on January 11, 2024 and will be at the Meadows Event Center at Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino. The Summit is free and open to the public, but registration is required.

“We look forward to hearing Emily expand upon the path forward that grows the market for biofuels and expanding opportunities for producers,” said Iowa Renewable Fuels Association marketing director Lisa Coffelt. “Growth Energy is spearheading the effort of expanding consumer access to higher blends at the pump.”

Growth Energy represents producers and supporters of ethanol working to drive demand, grow America's economy and improve the environment for future generations.
