The 2017 Renewable Fuels Summit has added another speaker to their agenda. Bob Dinneen, the Renewable Fuels Association President, will discuss the impact the incoming administration and Congress will have on the renewable fuels industry as part of his keynote address. Dinneen has 30 years of experience in U.S. ethanol policies and was instrumental in enacting the Renewable Fuel Standard in 2005. “The inauguration of a new president always creates the potential for changes to U.S. energy and trade policy,” says Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Managing Director, Lucy Norton. “As head of the Renewable Fuels Association, Bob Dinneen is well-positioned to forecast the future impact any policy changes could have on the ethanol industry and ensure renewable fuels always plays a key role in that discussion.” The 2017 Renewable Fuels Summit takes place at the Praire Meadows Conference Center on Jan. 31 in Altoona.
