FEW is happening in our backyard this year!
EcoEngineers is absolutely thrilled to be a part of the 37th Annual Fuel Ethanol Workshop (FEW) this year, especially since it is taking place in our hometown of Des Moines, Iowa. The event, which has had a few venue changes before landing in Iowa, will take place from July 13-15 at the Iowa Events Center in the heart of Des Moines.
Director of Engineering Jim Ramm, P.E., has also been tapped to speak on July 13 in the Low Carbon Efficiency Summit during the workshop. He’ll speak on a panel with other industry leaders called “Deployable Approaches for Lowering your Plant’s Carbon Intensity Score.” His colleagues on the panel include Jeff Roskam (Board of Advisors, PrairieFood), Neal Jakel (VP of Strategy and Technology, Fluid Quip Technologies LLC), and John Oyen (Business Development Manager, ABB Inc.)
Senior Regulatory Consultant Mark Heckman will also be presenting on a panel on the last day of the conference during the National Biomass Summit. His topic of conversation is “How Low Carbon Fuel Markets are Catalyzing Biogas Projects in the Corn Belt and Beyond.” See the full agenda here.
According to the FEW: “This panel will focus entirely on technological options available to ethanol producers ready to drive down the carbon intensity of their operation now. The presentations in this panel illustrate that while the ambition of low-carbon fuel production may be common, the pathways producers will ultimately pursue are likely to be highly varied. Topics covered during the discussion range from low carbon soil amendments for corn production all the way to cellulosic ethanol production from corn fiber.”
Jim will touch on how the ethanol industry can enter the carbon neutral world. He’s been interviewed in Ethanol Producer Magazine, and wrote a column for the May/June 2021 edition of Ethanol Today on the same subjects. Feel free to reach out to Jim before or after the event at email@example.com.
EcoEngineers is exhibiting at the conference, and we will have several other representatives attending throughout the sessions in July. Be on the lookout for Director of Strategic Development Kathy MacBeth y Mark Heckman, a senior regulatory consultant and our in-house farm practices expert.
From FEW: “The FEW delivers timely presentations with a strong focus on commercial-scale ethanol production – from quality control and yield maximization to regulatory compliance and fiscal management. The FEW is also the ethanol industry’s premier forum for unveiling new technologies and research findings. The program extensively covers cellulosic ethanol while remaining committed to optimizing existing grain ethanol operations.”
We can’t wait to see you in person in Des Moines!
