Developments that took place over the summer highlight the continuing evolution of the ethanol industry and support the argument for keeping the Renewable Fuel Standard intact, writes Bob Dinneen, president and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association. Among the significant events were the beginning of construction of Quad County Corn Processors' cellulosic ethanol facility in Iowa and Patriot Renewable Fuels' celebration of five years in business, Dinneen states. Technological innovations on display at the Farm Progress Show and rising corn yields also point to the RFS' positive influence, Dinneen adds.
