The ACE – the 36th annual American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) conference is taking place August 23-25, at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center, with the theme “Everything Counts.”

The conference provides two days of general sessions, including updates from ACE leadership, and this year, event coverage will feature topics like new uses and markets for ethanol producers, the retail marketplace for E15 and E85, farm-to-biofuel carbon market opportunities, and trade developments. The conference also offers breakout sessions with subjects covering the latest in technology updates, strategic planning advice, as well as ways for ethanol plants to lower their carbon score and raise profitability.
