Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor Highlights International Biofuels Growth at Global Ethanol Summit

Mon, 14 Oct 2019 18:25:48 CDT

Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor Highlights International Biofuels Growth at Global Ethanol Summit Today, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor addressed more than 400 attendees from 60 countries at the first-ever Global Ethanol Summit in Washington, D.C. The Global Ethanol Summit is sponsored by Growth Energy, U.S. Grains Council, and the Renewable Fuels Association, bringing together industry and government officials to learn about biofuels policies and global ethanol use.


In her remarks, Skor spoke on retailer adoption of ethanol bends and the fuel's growing popularity in the U.S. and abroad:


“Some of the most well-known U.S. retailers like Kwik Trip, Casey’s, Sheetz, not only carry the nation’s standard 10 percent ethanol blend – but they are also among the over 1,900 stores who are offering E15, a fifteen percent blend of ethanol. And we’re seeing that number of retailers offering this fuel choice continuing to grow. That’s because these retail giants know ethanol’s value, and so do their customers. They are comfortable, and excited, about putting their million and even billion-dollar brands behind engine-smart, earth-kind biofuels…Ethanol blended fuel is becoming the new global norm for consumers, and along with it, the promise of a low-carbon future.”


Additionally, Skor highlighted that “this growing trend of adoption across the globe shows that governments are looking to biofuels to meet their climate goals with a choice that drivers feel good about.”


During the summit, attendees have the opportunity to hear from experts ranging from decarbonizing our transportation fuel and the human health benefits of ethanol to favorable policies and ongoing trade discussions. The summit is being held in from Oct. 13 – 15 in Washington, D.C.
