Ethanol in a Midwestern Clean Fuels Policy
November 23rd 10:00am to 11:30am
The Midwestern clean fuels policy is a proposed market-based and technology-neutral policy with performance-based incentives for any fuel that offers a greenhouse gas advantage, without picking winners or losers. It reduces the use of higher carbon fuels and supports commercial deployment of lower-carbon fuels, including renewable natural gas, biofuels, and electricity for electric vehicles. A Midwestern clean fuels policy could be a game-changer for reducing emissions from the transportation sector, the region’s largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.
Similar policies are major drivers for ethanol in markets like California (Low Carbon Fuel Standard) and Oregon (Clean Fuel Standard).
The webinar will provide attendees opportunities to gain insights from experts in several key areas:
• Hear about the Midwestern Clean Fuels Policy Initiative
• Learn how a clean fuels program can benefit the ethanol industry
• Gain a better understanding of how ethanol pathways would generate credits
• See analysis modeling credit revenues in various scenarios
• Hear from industry representatives across the ethanol supply chain on how a clean fuels policy could support ethanol initiatives in the Midwest
• Brian Jennings, American Coalition for Ethanol
• Jessi Wyatt, Great Plains Institute
• Kelly Nieuwenhuis, Iowa Corn
• Michael Walz, POET
• Neal Koehler, Pacific Ethanol
• Ron Alverson, farmer
